Introducing the industry's first* communication units compatible with CC-Link IE Field

Visualize collected sensor data to launch IoT initiatives!

Conditions surrounding the manufacturing industry are rapidly changing as production processes are advancing dramatically based on keywords such as IoT and Industry 4.0. To respond to the IoT trend, "visualization" is the first step to take. Panasonic Industrial Device SUNX offers sensors and communication units that achieve the acquisition and visualization of sensor data.

Connection of various sensors to the network

Each SC-GU3 series unit can be connected with up to 16 sensors*.
* Up to 12 units when the system is configured with FX-500 series / LS-501 unit

Transmission of digital (numerical) data from pressure sensors, photoelectronic sensors, laser sensors, temperature controllers, and the like to the network
Setting of sensor threshold values and operation / confirmation of current values can be performed on the network. This eliminates the need to directly operating individual sensor units.

Transmission of digital (numerical) data from pressure sensors, photoelectronic sensors, laser sensors, temperature controllers, and the like to the network
* SC-A01 analog voltage input unit or SC-A02 analog current input unit is also required.

Transmission of ON/OFF data of proximity sensors and other sensors to the network
The ON/OFF data of sensors can be centrally managed on the network. Should an abnormality occur, the problem cause can be easily identified and located.

* SC-E1 1-channel connector input extension unit or SC-E81 / SC-E82 8-channel connector input extension unit is also required.

Communication unit for direct connection of sensors to the network!

Use of the communication unit enables the connection of various Panasonic Industrial Device SUNX sensors to a CC-Link network for the real-time acquisition of digital data and ON/OFF data. This allows you to change sensor settings via the network and also log data for preventive maintenance purposes.

Connection of displacement sensors to the network

Each SC-HG1 series unit can be connected with up to 15 displacement sensors.

Transmission of digital (numerical) data from contact-type digital displacement sensors to the network
The SC-HG1 series achieves programless transmission of high-precision data.
Internal settings of multiple units can also be changed in a batch via the network.

Batch saving of sensor settings at equipment startup!

Without communication unit
When multiple sensor units are used, if one of the sensors generates a malfunction, it is necessary to check the settings of the individual sensors. This requires many man-hours.
With communication unit
When a sensor malfunction occurs, a list of all sensor statuses is displayed, so the problem can be easily identified. By obtaining the data of the individual sensors and saving it in a settings file, system restoration work becomes easier and input / setting errors can be prevented.

Remote equipment monitoring / operation

Without communication unit
When a problem occurs, it is necessary to go back and forth between the office and worksite for the confirmation of the settings and other data.
With communication unit
The communication unit connected to the existing network enables the conformation of the settings of the sensors installed in the production equipment without leaving the office. The communication unit enables quick acquisition of status information.

Logging of the current values of digital sensors for use in preventive maintenance!

Without communication unit
It is difficult to grasp long-term sensor fluctuations only by pre-operation inspection. Manual recording of data also takes time and is cumbersome.
With communication unit
A graph plotted using obtained numerical data allows easy confirmation of the long-term fluctuation trend, thus enabling the prediction of sensor fluctuations to facilitate preventive maintenance.

Communication unit contributes to the reduction of wiring and installation work!

Easy replacement of a sensor without separating the adjacent sensor amplifier

Sensors are detachable simply by pushing down the lever of cascading connector unit and sliding the sensor amplifier sideways.

Support for Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ Sensor Solution

The SC-GU3-01 and SC-HG1-C Communication Units for CC-Link are compatible with Mitsubishi Electric's iQ Sensor Solution (iQSS) and can be used in combination with products that support iQSS, for example Mitsubishi Electric's MELSEC series.
* Supported only by SC-GU3-01 and SC-HG1-C (As of June 2017)

Digital sensors connected to the communication unit can be operated using Mitsubishi Electric's iQ Works (GX Works 2) software. The following functionalities can be realized by loading CSP+ data. The following functionality is supported by using iQ Works to load CSP+ data.
(Note) CSP+: CC-Link family system profile

[1]CC-Link configuration information can be used to easily check the configuration of devices (sensor types:fiber, pressure, cascading configuration, number of units) connected to the communication unit.
[2]A list of sensor-specific parameter data (write / read) can be acquired and changed.
[3]Allocation of the devices connected to the communication unit can be displayed by loading CSP+ data.

* Requires Mitsubishi Electric's GX Works 2 sequencer engineering software Ver. 1.492 or later.
