Automation Systems & Controls have announced that it is over 25 years since Mitsubishi Electric launched the first compact PLC on the European market. Since then Mitsubishi have provided over 8 million of compact controller installations.
With compact dimensions and low cost, compact controllers have opened up new perspectives in industrial automation. Many applications for which automation was once not even an option, can now benefit from the many advantages of these controllers.
The FX3U series that is being launched worldwide is the third generation Mitsubishi Electric's successful family of compact PLCs. The FX3U takes compact controllers into another dimension, delivering performance that was formerly the domain of larger control systems in a compact package.
The FX family now includes four independent but fully mutually-compatible product lines. These products are stocked and supported by Automation Systems & Controls.
