  • Single programming software – Simplifies project management by using the same software to configure networks, motion, and special function modules
  • Distributed I/O control via CC-Link IE Field – Build flexible and modular machines that are easier to engineer, maintain, and troubleshoot
  • Hassle-free connectivity with third party devices – Manage and configure devices such as Cognex cameras directly from GX Works2 PLC programming software

Built-in Ethernet Communication

The embedded Ethernet port offers out-of-the-box Ethernet communication with CPU search functionality. It enables communication to other Ethernet-enabled products. Peer-to-peer communication with other Mitsubishi Electric controllers is especially easy because it can be configured without any ladder programming. In addition, the L Series supports FTP server functionality and SNTP network clock synchronization.


Built-in High Speed Data Logging

The L Series has an embedded data logger that offers scan-independent sampling as fast as 1 ms. Users can setup event and trigger-based logging to customize data collection for the application at hand. The data logger can be engaged on an as-needed basis for troubleshooting and reliability tracing purposes without incurring additional cost.


Simple Motion Control

An optional motion control module can be mounted next to the L Series controller to add synchronized motion control over a fiber optic network. Complete with camming, phase compensation, and high speed registration, this is an easy way to deploy motion control. Everything is configured through GX Works2 software and motion function blocks simplify the programming process.
