Responding to industry demand for integrated machine and plant control, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. introduced the iQ-R Series which incorporates sequence, motion, safety, process, and C language control into one platform.

The iQ-R Series control platform is for applications requiring integrated motion and safety control, tight synchronization between various processes and high production throughput. The design is for applications within the automotive, food and beverage, material handling, life sciences, and electronics manufacturing industries.

The integrated design allows machines or production lines to consolidate control in one rack. The system can have up to 4 CPUs per rack for various combinations of motion, sequence or process control.

Key features of the iQ-R Series include:
• 0.98 ns execution speed
• Multi-discipline control with up to 4 CPUs in a single rack
• High-speed bus
• GX Works3 programming software with built-in functions and configuration screens
• CC-Link IE field network with deterministic performance over industrial Ethernet
• Built-in SD memory card database

“The iQ-R Series reduces total cost of ownership by offering many advanced features within the integrated controller,”

“This is a scalable solution to fit dynamic application needs, whether it involves coordinated motion, integrated safety, C language programming or PID control,” said Deana Fu, product manager at Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. “End users can mix and match controllers to standardize on one platform and simplify spare parts inventory.”
