Notes:

  1. The high speed data logger module distinguishes 10BASE-T from 100BASETX depending on the device on other end. For connection with a hub not having the auto-negotiation function,
    set the hub side to half-duplex auto communication mode.
  2. Distance between a hub and node.
  3. The specification for target data sampling with the data logging function, event logging function, and report function.
  4. The number of device points available for 1 piece of data depends on the data type.
  5. The total number of data logging, event logging, and report data.
    • Data logging : logging target data, trigger condition data, period condition data, file switching condition data, saved file name data; • Event logging: monitoring data, period condition data, file switching condition data, saved file name data; • Report : current value data, creation trigger condition data, period condition data, saved file name data
  6. The amount of sampled data per single setting is as follows only when the creation trigger and current value data are not synchronized with the report setting. Amount of data (per single setting): maximum of 65535, number of device points (per single setting): maximum of 65535.
  7. The data type when reading data from the programmable controller CPU’s device memory.
  8. The format when outputting data to a CSV file with data logging or event logging. Binary files are output in the binary format. Reports are output in Excel cell format.
  9. A function to perform data scaling and offset calculations.
  10. Up to 64 settings can be configured for data logging, event logging, and report function combined. Of these, up to 32 settings can be configured for data logging, event logging, and report function when high speed data sampling is specified.
  11. By using the report function, data can be re-output in the Excel file format.
  12. When high speed data sampling is specified, period and trigger conditions combined up to 4 conditions. When general data sampling is specified, period and trigger conditions combined up to 8 conditions.
  13. When high speed data sampling is specified, up to 4 conditions.
  14. Only binary format data logging can be output to report function.
  15. A function to access the high speed data logger module (FTP server) from a personal computer’s FTP client software. For details of supported FTP commands, refer to Appendix 9.
  16. The upper limit of the number of simultaneous connections to the high speed data logger module from FTP client software. FTP client software may use multiple connections per single access session.
  17. A function to access a personal computer’s FTP server software from the high speed data logger module (FTP client).
  18. Up to 4 windows can be displayed, consisting of the realtime trend window, historical trend window, realtime event window, and historical event window.
  19. Up to 2 windows can be displayed, consisting of the realtime trend window and realtime event window.

Standard MES Interface Module

As part of Mitsubishi’s e-F@ctory technology, the QJ71MES96 module allows a direct connection from a Q Series Automation Platform controller on the shop floor to high level IT MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) infrastructure. This offers the following benefits:

  • No need for intermediate PC infrastructure to interface shop floor controllers to “front office” IT systems
  • Significantly reduced cost of ownership as no PC maintenance issues apply
  • Improved security; prevents access by unauthorized personnel
  • Improved productivity; industrially hardened architecture is immune to typical PC reliability issues
  • High speed Ethernet connection from shop floor to “front office” IT systems
  • Convenient installation; module simply mounts in a spare Q Series slot and configures with dedicated software tool (MX-MESIF-STD-C1)

  2. Distance between a hub and node.

MES Interface IT Module

The MES Interface IT and e-F@ctory technology solves the difficult challenge of efficiently linking factory and IT systems to enable comprehensive data collection and distribution. It achieves system standardization security, and high data reliability for any system from individual machines to large scale production lines.

  • Access to accurate and reliable production information
  • Dramatically simplified system architecture
  • Reduced integration time and effort
  • Improved security and standardization
  • Achieves lean and agile operation at the lowest cost of ownership



The MES Interface IT module is a communication interface between IT assets and plant floor equipment.

Each MES Interface IT system should have a minimum of one module and one transport. A transport is added to the module so the module knows how to talk to a database or message queue system. Additional transports can be purchased at anytime.

Mitsubishi Electric MELSEC drivers are included with the purchase of the module. Other drivers are available as options if the module needs to share information with legacy MELSEC or third party controllers.

Device connections refer to the number of controllers or other devices the MES Interface IT module will communicate with. The example to the left has four controllers (one is the local CPU and the other three are networked). The module comes with five device connections. Additional connections can be purchased at anytime.
