Mitsubishi Electric's L Series PLC combines advanced networking with motion and sequence control in a rackless design.


Mitsubishi Electric L Series programmable logic controller (PLC) is the company’s newest generation of industrial control, combining advanced networking with motion and sequence control. The L Series is constructed around a rack-less design, which provides greater flexibility and reduces cost over traditional rack-based systems. This allows customers to save space in control panels by using an integrated system bus structure.


The main processing unit comes with built-in USB, Ethernet and CC-Link communication ports. Built-in I/O functions can be used for positioning, high speed counting, pulse catch, input interrupt, and general purpose I/O. The CPU has a processing speed as low as 9.5 ns with 260,000 steps of program capacity which makes the L Series perfect for equipment control requiring complex programs. It leverages standard SD memory that can be used for data logging, boot operations and backup and restore functions. A multi-color high function four line display option can be used to check the system status without the need for software and a laptop. All functions provided by this platform can be programmed and maintained with Mitsubishi Electric’s GX Works2 programming environment, a component of iQ Works. GX Works2 and iQ Works drive down costs with features that speed up commissioning, reduce downtime, improve programming productivity, and provide strong security.
