Addressing the demand for high performance programmable logic control in the price-sensitive factory automation market, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc., introduces the FX3S Programmable Logic Controller. The newest PLC in the FX3 Series of PLCs, the compact FX3S maintains a high-level of functionality, while offering entry-level accessibility.
Notable attributes of the FX3S PLC are its flexibility and expandability. It allows users to choose only the functionality necessary to perform a specific application, saving on hardware costs.
The FX3S micro PLC provides full function PLC control. It retains core FX3 Series performance and flexibility traits, with built-in high-speed inputs and outputs, available relay outputs, and multiple, built-in communication ports. It also includes expansion options for communications, analog, and temperature control. As part of the FX3 Series, the FX3S can use many of the existing programming resources that are available for other FX3 Series PLCs, greatly reducing time for system set up.
The FX3S PLC is designed to handle basic control tasks, such as simple positioning, analog, and temperature control operations. It excels in small, standalone applications that don’t require complex control tasks. The compact PLC is especially well suited for food and beverage applications, as well as material handling, and fan and pump applications for irrigation and building automation.
