Yokogawa FA-M3 PLC

The PLC of Yokogawa FA-M3 is a next generation, open controller architecture. It features higher functionality in a slim factor of form. Nevertheless, it is the feature of "I/O Opening" that differentiates the FA-M3 from traditional PLCs. This flexible feature of I/O lets us to build up new modules for the PLC of FA-M3. Usually, when external tools that did not meet the specifications of PLC was linked to a PLC, an external unit of mastering was required. Because the FA-M3 lets customization for every module manufacturer, it is likely to attach the FA-M3 with external tools with no the external unit of mastering. The company also implements the I/O opening design rule for the module of SERCOS I/F. The FA-M3 PLC configuration diagram is including the part of development.
