Mitsubishi Electric launches new IIoT-ready high-performance PLC

14 December 2023

Mitsubishi Electric’s new MELSEC FX5S PLC is designed to support businesses on their digital transformation journey, offering a cost-effective, easy-to-use control solution.

The latest addition to the MELSEC iQ-F series of compact, high-performance PLCs is ideal for simple, straightforward applications in the food and beverage, water and machining industries. 

It offers Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) functions for effective entry-level industrial automation applications. 

The FX5S is easy to configure and use, streamlining deployment and enabling users to quickly set up installations. This intuitive system also delivers the level of high-speed performance required by accurate positioning applications.

End users and machine builders can leverage Mitsubishi Electric’s FX5S to develop and implement cost-effective machines with up to 60 I/O points. 

These solutions support IIoT connectivity and functionalities. Therefore, they minimise the investment necessary to advance the digitalisation of key operations and start creating future-oriented smart factories. 

In particular, when looking at IIoT capabilities, the solution offers data logging and data flow analysis functions to speed up and enhance troubleshooting and root cause analysis. 

As the PLC features a built-in web server, operators can also remotely access these functions and monitor operations at any time, further improving responsiveness and flexibility.

Thanks to its compatibility with CC-Link IE Field Basic, an open industrial Ethernet technology, the controller can be seamlessly linked with other factory automation devices such as HMIs, drives and remote I/O. This ensures reliable communications and facilitates the creation of interconnected shop floors. 

Mitsubishi Electric’s FX5S is a compact and highly capable controller that can support companies in advancing on their digitalisation journeys.
