Mitsubishi Electric has developed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) developer’s kit for both first-time automation users and experienced engineers.

According to the company, the kit consists of PLC, HMI and programming software that can be used to develop new machines for a range of manufacturing and process industries.

This includes the company’s MELSEC iQ-F FX5U PLC controller and GOT2000 HMI to monitor and visualise automated processes and equipment, along with a copy of its MELSOFT iQ Works2 engineering software to support coding and programming activities. The kit can also be expanded to use safety modules to support more advanced application requirements, Mitsubishi said.

‘We are always exploring new ways of making it easier and more cost-efficient for machine builders to create automated systems and improve manufacturing operations,’ said Barry Weller, OEM solutions manager at Mitsubishi Electric. ‘This kit brings together our latest hardware and software plus the technical resources needed to use the products and provides users with what is required to go from never having used an automation product to delivering a successful project.’
