Mitsubishi's Economy Solutions

Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has introduced Economy Solutions, packaged servo and motion bundles that allow for high-precision motion-control in a way that is quick and affordable to integrate.

Three different bundles are currently available—compact motion, basic motion, and pulse motion. Compact motion delivers premium performance and is available in up to 7.0 kWs. It offers up to eight axes of synchronized motion per module and operates on the new CC-Link IE Time-Sensitive Network (TSN) allowing for improved communications speed.

Basic motion is the most affordable option and uses the integrated networking of the iQ-F compact PLC to control servo amplifiers and motors at a very low cost, per its maker. It operates over the CC-Link IE Field Basic network and allows the integration of other IE Field Basic compatible devices. It is best suited for small systems and supports up to 16 stations.

Pulse motion allows for easy integration with third party PLCs. It operates over pulse-train communication, which makes it able to communicate with almost any PLC. Also suited for smaller systems, it does not require a motion module, notes Mitsubishi .

All three options provide the following benefits:

- Removes guesswork from selecting parts

- Guaranteed compatibility between components

- Sample programs to help customers get up to speed faster

- Flexible and configurable to meet exact requirements

“This is our first step toward building our portfolio of solutions to improve the customer experience,” said Curtis Sylliaasen, associate product manager at Mitsubishi Electric Automation. “By offering pre-configured options, we will be able to target specific customer pain points with solutions that can be customized to each individual project.”
