FA-M3

The FA-M3 is designed and best known for its speed so it's only natural that the new series be named FA-M3V, where V stands for "Vitesse", which means speed in French. From day one, FA-M3 has relentlessly pursued higher speeds as the most effective means to solving customer challenges. Over time, this has evolved into the High Speed IPRS (Instruction, Processing, Response and Scan) design concept. Today, we have set a new record in this quadruple speed quest by creating the FA-M3V, which offers extensibility and reliability at incredible speed. FA-M3V, the leading edge controller for customers who will settle for nothing less than world's best.

*4:The relays in the relay output modules are not of hermetically sealed type. Dust or corrosive gases in the installation environment will adversely affect the service life of the relays. Relays that are switched on and off in an atmosphere containing silicone gases from silicone-based materials may suffer from poor electrical contact due to SiO2 (silicon dioxide) formed and deposited on the surfaces of their contacts. Risks of bad contact due to silicon gases are especially high under load conditions below 24 VDC and 500 mA. In such environments, we recommend the use of transistor output modules or other modules employing semiconductor elements instead.

*1:Operation of the protection circuitry:

  • If short-circuit occurs, the ON voltage increases and the short-circuit current is limited within the range 1-3 A.
  • If the short-circuit condition is removed, normal operation resumes.
  • If the short-circuit condition persists, the short-circuit current may cause the temperature of the output element to reach approx. 160°C, triggering the overheat protector to shut down the output.
  • If the temperature of the overheated output element then drops by approximately 10°C, normal operation resumes.
  • The overheat protector will not be triggered if the module is operated normally within its specifications with no short-circuit condition.
  • Both the short-circuit protector and overheat protector are designed to control outputs individually. Under some short-circuit conditions, however, the overheat protector may shut down not only its associated output but also other outputs.
  • Short-circuit and overheat protectors are designed to protect the output element against short-term short-circuit. Never leave the module in prolonged short-circuit condition. Otherwise, the module enclosure may deteriorate or the PCB may be discolored
  • Ensure that the polarity of the external power supply is correct. Otherwise, a short-circuit condition may damage an output element, and cause smoldering and scattering of chips. Beware that wrongly connecting a connector wired for F3XD32 or F3XD64 to the module may disable the protectors and damage internal elements.

*2:If an inductive load, such as a relay, is to be connected, a surge protector is also required on the load side. Connect a surge protector or a diode across the load nearby so that the module output terminal voltage will not exceed the specified operating load voltage range.
*3:The contact operation of the output block of the circuit and the LED display operate independently and thus may be inconsistent in the event of an error.

*1:When F3SP28, F3SP38, F3SP5x, F3SP6x or F3SP7x is used. For other CPU modules, the OFF→ON response time is 1.0 ms (max.) and the OFF→ON response time is 2.5 ms (max.). The actual response time can be obtained by adding the following values:

  • 100 μs (OFF→ON)
  • 300 μs (ON→OFF)

If the input interrupt is to be used, set the input sampling period to at least 62.5 μs.

*2:Operation of the protection circuitry:

  • If short-circuit occurs, the ON voltage increases and the short-circuit current is limited within the range 1-3 A.
  • If the short-circuit condition is removed, normal operation resumes.
  • If the short-circuit condition persists, the short-circuit current may cause the temperature of the output element to reach approx. 160°C, triggering the overheat protector to shut down the output.
  • If the temperature of the overheated output element then drops by about 10°C, normal operation resumes.
  • The overheat protector will not be triggered if the module is operated normally within its specifications with no short-circuit condition.
  • Both the short-circuit protector and overheat protector are designed to control outputs individually. Under some short-circuit conditions, however, the overheat protector may shut down not only its associated output but also other outputs.
  • Short-circuit and overheat protectors are designed to protect the output element against short-term short-circuit. Never leave the module in prolonged short-circuit condition. Otherwise, the module enclosure may deteriorate or the PCB may be discolored.
  • Ensure that the polarity of the external power supply is correct. Otherwise, a short-circuit condition may damage an output element, and cause smoldering and scattering of chips. Beware that wrongly connecting a connector wired for F3XD32 or F3XD64 to the module may disable the protectors and damage internal elements.

*3:If an inductive load, such as a relay, is to be connected, a surge protector is also required on the load side. Connect a surge protector or a diode across the load nearby so that the module output terminal voltage will not exceed the specified operating load voltage range.
*4:For details on the module behavior when the CPU fails, see the Severity of Failures and LED Display” in the FA-M3 Range-free Multi-controller (GS 34M06A01-01E).
*5:When F3SP28, F3SP38, F3SP5x, F3SP6x or F3SP7x is used, all points can be specified in 16-point units.
*6:The contact operation of the output block of the circuit and the LED display operate independently and thus may be inconsistent in the event of an error.

High-speed Data Acquisition module (F3HA06-1R / F3HA12-1R)

These are data acquisition module that is mounted on a base module for the range-free multi-controller FA-M3. It features 6/12 analog input channels and 3 auxiliary input channels. The auxiliary inputs can also be used for a 1-channel counter.

All channels for analog input operate simultaneously. In addition to fixed-cycle A/D conversion, A/D conversion synchronized with an external signal is also possible.

This module features not only a data acquisition function that stores data in the built-in buffer, but also a filter function, scaling function, and FFT function. The FFT function can be used to analyze acquired data inside the module.

F3HA□□-1R

Features

  • This module features simultaneous A/D conversion of 6/12 channels. It takes 10 μs from sampling to updating digital output values.
  • This module uses 16-bit successive approximation ADCs.
  • This module can store A/D conversion results and counter values in the buffer inside the module. This acquisition process does not rely on the scan cycle of the CPU module, which enables data to be acquired at a high-speed, constant cycle. The shortest acquisition cycle is 5 μs, and the data buffer size is 2M words.
  • FFT operation can be applied to acquired data. The maximum amount of data is 16,384 points. FFT can also be applied multiple times, and the results can be averaged.
  • A/D conversion can be initiated synchronously with pulses to the auxiliary input or the built-in counter.
  • The square of an analog input or the product of two analog inputs is calculated at each A/D conversion and that value is accumulated. This function can be used to calculate the RMS value of alternating voltage input and effective power.

It can be used to set up registered parameters, action pattern data and position data for positioning modules, as well as perform action test and monitoring.
By providing an integrated development environment that features ease of use, reusability and visibility, it simplifies module setup and debugging, and thus dramatically improves development efficiency.

Features

Integrated Development Environment

  • By installing ToolBox for Positioning Modules (SF662-MCW) and ToolBox for Temperature Control and Monitoring Modules (SF661-MCW) on the same PC, temperature control and PID modules, temperate monitoring modules and positioning modules (with positioning pulse output) can be conveniently managed within the same project.What's more, ToolBox support for other FA-M3 advanced I/O modules can be added when available.
  • ToolBox and the Ladder Programming Tool WideField2 or WideField3 can be run concurrently to edit data. With WideField2 R2 or later version, concurrent communication with FA-M3 is also supported.

Ease of Use and Reusability

  • Action pattern data and position data are created and managed separately. A user can therefore create action pattern during design, and add position data in the field using the teach function, or even reuse pattern data for different units of the same equipment, thus dramatically improving development efficiency.
  • Action pattern table and position data table can be created separately and customized for two-axes operation (F3NC32-0N) and four-axes operation (F3NC34-0N).
  • Labels and comments can be added to individual action pattern data or position data records.
  • The input completion function speeds up data input by presenting candidates for selection based on existing data during input of action pattern data or position data. This allows a user to create action pattern data or perform action test without prior knowledge of existing action pattern data or position data.
  • Action pattern data and position data can be created at the same time or separately to suit your preference.
  • Position data can be simply dragged and dropped from the position data table to the action pattern data table.

Visibility

  • The Window List bar displays a list of open windows to allow quick access to hidden windows.
  • Cells of setup data are appropriately color-coded on edit windows of registered parameters, action pattern data and position data – red for error data, pink for modified but unconfirmed data, yellow for modified and confirmed value and gray for cells that do not require input.

Debugging and Maintenance

  • All statuses are monitored during an action test to facilitate debugging of registered parameters, action pattern data and position data.
  • When performing an action test using jog operations, pressing and holding the SHIFT key moves multiple axes concurrently. Releasing the SHIFT key stops all axes.
  • Input/output relays of FA-M3 advanced function I/O modules can be displayed with help information, monitored and even turned on or turned off.
  • The Help function in ToolBox for Positioning Module can be used to call up relevant help information in the user manual for positioning modules.
