PLCs at heart of AGV control

12 August 2014

A leading automotive manufacturer is using automated guided vehicles (AGV) to transfer components to different stations within the assembly process. Key to the design operation of the AGVs are the modular MELSEC L series PLCs from Mitsubishi Electric.

The MELSEC L Series is Mitsubishi Electric's newest PLC, designed to meet the needs of OEMs by providing all the performance, functions and capabilities required for today's demanding automation requirements in a compact, rack-free package.

Bridging the gap between the FX micro PLC and the iQ platform high performance modular MELSEC system Q Series PLC, the new modular controller puts all the power of a Q series PLC into a small PLC, greatly increasing the range of functionality traditionally associated with PLCs of this size, with ease of expansion and a user-centric design inspired by the FX.
