Mitsubishi Electric announces slice type I/O modules

August 21, 2019 - The latest slice type I/O modules from Mitsubishi Electric offer features for PLC users, including fast-fit connections and hot-swap installation, plus, online and onboard software for settings.

Each slice offers a clip-in mounting system, while status LEDs help with visual diagnostics. It has a width of 11.5 mm, allowing for larger systems to be wired into a smaller panel, up to 64 modules can be connected per row.

Wiring is aided with push-in spring clamp terminal blocks. The terminal block itself is detachable, allowing components to be wired-in and then plugged in to the I/O block while it is in position

Set-up is accessible using the proprietary software GX Works3 or a dedicated onboard settings tool built into the communication module. The tool includes features such as monitoring/diagnostics and functional tests.

Communication modules provide connectivity to main European network protocols and can also be used to provide power to a row of I/O modules. Power does not have to be manually wired-in as it is supplied discretely through each slice and there is the option for an extended power supply module. The modules are also hot swappable for installation during system changes.
