The automation solution specific to your needs
The MELSEC-Q Series offers ‘total and global’ solutions for a diverse range of applications.
The MELSEC-Q Series continues to advance the state of the art in automation cont
control.
The Q Series is an enhancement of Mitsubishi Electric’s vast automation system expertise, while inheriting the technical LineUp 3
assets from the MELSEC-A and QnA Series.
This unique series is able to integrate four types of automation cotrol, sequence, motion, process, and information (PC
based) onto a single system. Therefore, offering significant benefits for the user in terms of development, functionality,
performance, and maintenance.
