High performancemultiple functions and strengthened lineup
The 32-bit RISC processor provides the top-level processing speed in compact
PLCs. The scan time is 2ms or less for 5000 steps*¹. A high-speed PLC is indis-
pensable for enhancing the functionality of equipment.
*1 Basic instructions: 40%, Data transfer and operation instructions: 60%
Large capacity program memory
FP-X, which is equipped with 32k steps*² program memory, is ideal for fully covering
the increasing functions, such as communications, positioning and analog control.
The ample program capacity can also support future equipment modifications.
*2 C14: 16k steps
Independent comment memory
The FP-X features an independent comment memory which facilitates program
management and maintenance. Comments document a PLC project and help
programmers understand the code long after the program was written.
Faster operation of basic instructions
E.g. ST, AN or OR
Faster operation of high-level instructions
E.g. floating point operation instructions
Reduction of total scan time
Inside of FP-X
Maximum number of I/O points
Since up to 8 expansion units can be connected to 1 control unit, the maxi-
mum number of I/O points is 300. Furthermore, with the add-on cassette
and expansion FP0 adapter connected, the number of I/O points can be in-
creased to 382.
Up to 3 channels
3 channels are available with a combination of a communication cas-
sette (2-channel type) and the tool port.
The combinations of a wide variety of communication functions can
support diversified applications.
With a communication cassette (Ethernet type), inspection data, production
data and error information can be easily collected.
Communications with equipment compatible with Modbus-RTU (binary), a
worldwide de-facto standard, are available without programming. E.g. tem-
perature controllers and inverters.
With a communication cassette (RS485 type), bit data/word data can be
easily shared among up to 16 FP-X units.
Easy communications with equipment compatible with Matsushita’s open
protocol “MEWTOCOL” are available without programming. E.g. displays,
machine vision systems, temperature controllers and power meters.
General purpose serial communications
Commands are generated/transmitted in accordance with the communication
protocol of the target equipment.
Or, nonprocedural data receiving is available. E.g. measuring instruments,
barcode readers and RF-ID.
