Aug. 2, 2016 – The iQ-F compact controller from Mitsubishi Electric Automation claims to help OEMs build powerful automation systems with “fewer components, shorter engineering time, and at lower total cost.”
Based on Mitsubishi’s FX Series, iQ-F promises to deliver the same control capabilities as its predecessor, as well as new functionalities for “even better performance and user experience.” The iQ-F Series offers synchronized motion control, data logging, and security features. The controller family shares the same design concepts as Mitsubishi Electric’s other iQ Platform controllers, says Mitsubishi. Each controller can have a security key that lets users manage access to and operation of software and hardware. The iQ-F Series controller also offers a range of embedded functions, including analog and digital I/O, positioning control, security features, data logging, serial and Ethernet communication.
