The advantages of Mitsubishi Modular PLCAlthough it is not as popular as the product Allen Bradley, Mitsubishi modular PLCs are still used by many users because it has many advantages, including the following:
Reliable memory for storing input data and executionOne of advantages from Mitsubishi Modular PLC is having much more memory and has the ability to store a higher volume compared to products that have the same memory capacity with this PLC. This could speed up the process execution data.
Having more numbers I/O modules that are profitableOther types of PLC is usually have limited numbers I / O modules so that the choice of use Modular PLC is good decision because it has more number of I / O modules more so that it has the capacity to achieve more complex process.
Easy in and operating a trouble shootingGood controller must have the characteristics of easy to operate, and if a problem occurs, the PLC is easy to fix.
