Training Video: Connecting Mitsubishi FX3U PLC to TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI via Melsec Protocol
Learn how to connect a Mitsubishi Melsec FX3U PLC to TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI through built-in driver with our new free online video training.
Let's develop a control system, including an operator console (human machine interface) and a PLC. The connection between them will be provided via MELSEC protocol through Ethernet network. As PLC we will use Mitsubishi FX3U-16M with I/O module FX3U-4AD-PT-ADP connected to temperature sensors and ETHERNET module FX3U-ENET. The IP-address of the PLC is 192.168.10.218 the port for data exchange is 5551.
We should acquire and visualize data from one temperature sensor on our operator HMI. The value from sensor is located in Data/FileRegister D8260. In order to show temperature in degrees centigrade, it is necessary to divide data in Register by 10.

Viru RMT Ou (Estonia, EU), Authorized System Integrator of AdAstrA Research Group fulfilled reconstruction of control system for the 1000 tones gas generator retort at the main technological process of VKG oil shale company.
VKG Oil is the biggest oil shale chemical industry in Europe, the main field of activity of which is thermal processing of oil shale. 1.4 million tons oil shale is reprocessed per year. The company produces various fuel oils, which are characterized by low viscosity and a setting point below -25ºC, oil coke and pitch, summary oil shale phenols, antiseptic wood impregnation oil and bitumen.
The return of investment in reconstruction of SCADA TRACE MODE based gas generator control system was achieved within...
The Test company (Poland)usedthe TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI software to build the control system for the plant of biogasfuel production from the sewerage - Elbląskie Przedsiębiorstwo Wodociągów i Kanalizacji w Elblągu Sp. z o.o., situated inElblagcity in north-eastern Poland.
The Elblag city is a Polishleader inenergy production fromrenewable sources, includingbiogas andbiomass.
According to the developers of biofuel production systems, the use of SCADA TRACE MODE has reduced the overall cost of the project in two-three times (compared to the same level SCADA software).
In Bosnia, the Bosanski Brod refinery launched a second production line, which was repaired by the Russian company Zarubezhneft. Now the plant is able to produce the gasoline conforming to the Euro 5 standard.
The operator control systems for the gasoline production at the Bosanski Brod refinery were developped and implemented by several Russian system integrators. All integrators used Russian SCADA-software TRACE MODE 6 (AdAstra Research Group, Moscow) for process control of gasoline production.
New Brodsky refinery control system consists of the following parts ...
AdAstra Research Group (Moscow, Russia) has released a new version of the free TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI driver for the OMRON programmable logical controller. The new driver is built in the TRACE MODE SCADA/HMI 6.09 release and above.
