Mitsubishi: Modular programmable automation controller

Designed for multi-discipline systems requiring at least one sequence CPU, the iQ Platform from Mitsubishi Electric integrates individual sequence, motion, CNC, and robot control onto a single back-plane rack.
FILED IN:  Controls  > Machine control

Based on the multi-CPU architecture of the Q Series Automation Platform, the iQ ultra high-speed dual-bus back plane helps users expand their configuration with existing Q Series I/O and intelligent modules, providing the iQ Platform customized flexibility without the cost of new development or double-stock.

The iQ features large 4096 I/O capacity and as low as 9.5ns instruction processing, with selectable CPU program size.  Selectable built-in Ethernet sequence CPUs enable program upload/download and monitoring, debugging, SNTP, and FTP functionality via Ethernet.  System configuration and PLC/Motion/HMI programming is possible with iQ Works.  The platform also features backward compatibility with Q Series programs and parameters.

Other features include: multiple program processing; selectable 8 or 32-axis high-speed fiber optic motion controller CPUs; selectable 16-axis C70 CNC controller CPU; selectable vertical or horizontal type robot controller CPUs; infinite I/O and intelligent function module customization possibilities; minimal hardware footprint; certified by UL, cUL, CE (as indicated), as well as DNV, ABS, RINA, BV, LR, and NK shipping approvals for all Q Series products.

iQ Base Units include: Q35DB, Q38DB or Q312DB
