Windows® and VxWorks® pre-installed

MI5000 module can run two operating systems at the same time, VxWorks with deterministic performance for devise control and data collection and Windows10 IoT for displaying analysis results of collected data, allowing superior processing according to OS. This feature allows one module to realize device control and information processing which were previously managed using a computer and dedicated device, reducing system configuration cost and space for devices.

CC-Link IE Field Network realizes highly accurate device control

Control data and production data of devices can be communicated at 1ms via CC-Link IE Field Network, realizing highly accurate device control and high-speed production data collection.The module is equipped with CC-Link IE Field Network port and CC-Link IE Field Network Basic port which enable easy connection with compatible products just by setting. MI5000 combined with the Real time data analytics software will help to predict system failures ahead of time so appropraite maintenance can be scheduled to avoid unnecessary downtime.

Easier programming

Using Windows® and VxWorks® API, high-speed data communications between OSs and access to various devices are easily realized and programming is also easy. In addition, the module uses same functions as the C Controller such as CCPU functions and MD functions, program assets of the C Controller can be utilized

Hardware features

Inheriting highly robust features of the MELSEC programmable controllers, the module can continuously operate in various environments for a long term. In addition, consumable items are easily removed and replaced, making maintenance easy.
