Programmable controller series for scalable machines
The MELSEC-L programmable controller from Mitsubishi Electric Automation customizes hardware configurations for scalable machines and integrates sequence, motion, temperature, and vision control into one package.
Mitsubishi Electric Automation's MELSEC-L programmable controller series has been expanded to provide more scalable machines and allows users to customize hardware configurations to align with their system requirements.
L Series features include:
- Addresses the exact program memory requirements of the specific application.
- Offers the flexibility to expand network architecture. In addition to 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T communication, the L Series Ethernet module also supports MODBUS/TCP through a protocol library.
- Minimizes space utilization and facilitates troubleshooting and maintenance by combining I/O on digital modules and analog modules.
The L Series integrates advanced sequence, motion, temperature, and vision control into a single package, making the new models ideally suited to applications within the food and beverage, packaging, and life sciences industries, including medical R&D, clinical supply, and commercial manufacturing.
All models within the L Series product line feature single-CPU architecture with built-in Ethernet and mini-USB interfaces, a SD/SDHC memory card slot for program storage and data logging, and 24 I/O for positioning and high-speed counter functions. The high performance L Series controller also includes a CC-Link V2 master/local station for connection to the open field network.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
