MELSEC Q Series 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)

Notes:

  1. The MES interface module distinguishes 10BASE-T from 100BASE-TX 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.

Q Series 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.
