QG60.eps

MELSEC Q Series Slot Filler Module

In some cases it is not possible to fill all the slots on a rack. Where unused slots exist, there is a risk of system damage caused by extraneous material entering the backplane or system modules via the unused slot positions. The QG60 module is an empty single slot module case that fits in an unused slot to protect from possible contamination. Since the QG60 contains no electronic components, it does not affect the system configuration, power consumption or programming.

MELSEC Q Series / iQ Memory Cards

Q Series memory cards are optional memory expansions. Use these cards to expand the CPU memory up to 32Mb. Memory cards may be used for storage of programs, data and system documentation. Note these are only used with sequence CPUs. Program memory is not increased by adding memory cards.

For program storage only. Does not increase program memory.

Notes:

  1. To execute the program stored in the standard ROM or memory card, adjusting the program memory boot settings is required in the PLC parameter dialog box. Note that the Universal model QCPU cannot boot data from the standard ROM to the program memory.
  2. Read from a sequence program requires several scans.
  3. Read only from a sequence program.

All Q Series CPUs employ RAM based memory. To insure this is preserved after power down, use the Q6BAT or Q7BAT. Note these are not compatible with the A6BAT. Any RAM based memory cards installed in the CPU use the Q2MEM-BAT for back-up and are independent of the Q6BAT. One Q6BAT is shipped with each CPU.

MELSEC Q Series IDC Terminal Block Adapter

The Q6TA32 allows some I/O modules to offer an IDC (insulation displacement connector) type wiring connection. This makes wiring less expensive and faster, as wires do not need to be stripped or have a lug fitted. Wire is simply pushed into the receptacles on the adapter, and held firmly by the IDC connection.
