Mitsubishi Electric to Release CC-Link IE TSN Compatible Factory Automation Products

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will release the industry’s first 102 factory automation products, including programmable controllers, servo amplifiers, robots, GOTs (HMIs), inverters and CNCs that are compatible with the CC-Link IE TSN next-generation industrial open network, starting from May 7.

Factory Automation Products

Integration of machine control and information communication required for next-generation smart factories will be realized on one network, further enhancing Mitsubishi Electric’s [email protected] integrated factory automation solution. In addition, high-speed, high-precision communication will improve machine performance and thereby contribute to productivity and quality improvement.

The Key Product Features include:

1) Factory automation products support TSN technology for highly flexible Industrial Internet of Things             (IIoT) system architecture

  • Factory automation products offering industry-first compatibility with CC-Link IE TSN
  •  Separately configured machine control and information communication can be integrated into one Ethernet cable, helping to reduce system configuration design and installation costs.
  • Easy parameter registration allows mixing of multiple communication cycles, such as 1 Gbps and 100 Mbps, enabling easy configuration of optimum systems.

2) High-speed, high-precision communication improves productivity and quality

  •  With a link scan5 of 31.25 μs, high-speed processing is 16 times6 faster compared to existing motion networks, drastically reducing facility and machine production cycle time for improved productivity
  •  High-precision synchronous control7 without communication delay, even in large-scale systems, realizes highly data analysis in cloud and edge computing systems, thereby improving quality

3) Engineering tool improves system management

  • Connected device profile coordination function with CSP+8 of MELSOFT GX Works3 engineering tool manages all connected devices, including third-party partner products
  • Graphically displays entire network status to allow network and fault device diagnosis with intuitive operation, helping to reduce downtime due to errors.
