The continuously shortened life cycle of equipment has highlighted the importance of reduced costs during manufacturing and initial installation. Panasonic Industrial Devices SUNX offers a line of devices, the SC-GU3 series communication units for open network, that maximize the capabilities of open networks, streamline regular maintenance and preventive maintenance, and reduce wiring and installation work. We offer solutions that minimize costs during the life cycle of equipment.
It is useful to keep track of the sensor configurations at equipment start-up so that failures can be quickly identified and the user alerted.
Since the sensor settings can be checked over the network, it is possible to minimize the man-hours spent by field workers to resolve failures of equipment or line.
By saving the default settings as "Configuration file" when equipment was shipped out, sensor replacement can be smoothly performed by downloading via an open network. Replacement work is also easy, for sensor is equipped with connector that require no tools.
Observe digital data such as incident light intensity or pressure value of sensors and graph them for preventive maintenance.
Store Settings of the connected digital sensors into the SC-GU3 series. Just press the “Setting extension (EXT.)” key and setting data can be transmitted and restored to original status. Maintenance such as sensor replacement can be performed smoothly. Also, the settings stored in the SC-GU3 series is checked against the settings of the digital sensors when the power is turned on. When the setting is different, memory function indicator (MEM.) will flash, and warning signal sent, preventing the equipment from operating with settings changed.
Installation space for slave devices is eliminated. Cascade connection is simply done with connectors so that the time taken for wiring and construction can be reduced.
Open unit (sensor) setting is achieved when performing the process for every 1 byte (sensor input for 8 units) in order to make the data control clear, or planning to add sensors later. In addition, the SC-GU3 series minimizes installation space by reducing space required for all I/O units.
Standard, general-purpose sensors can also be connected in cascade to the SC-GU3 series with connector input units of SC-A01, SC-A02, SC-E1, SC-E81 and SC-E82. Further wire-saving can be achieved.
(Note) Analog output type devices can be connected to the SC-A01 and SC-A02 (1 to 5 V / 4 to 20 mA)
(Use in combination with SC-71, with the exception of certain models)
Sensors capable of communicating internal digital values (Models that support optical communications)
|FX-551, FX-301 (manufactured before May 2004), FX-301(B/G/H), FX-301-HS
|Fiber sensors for manual setting
|FX-411, FX-412, FX-311 (B/G)
|Fiber sensors for leak / liquid fiber

|8-channel connector input extension unit
|8-channel connector input extension unit (without an input signal indicator)
Sensors are detachable simply by pushing down the lever of cascading connector unit and sliding the sensor amplifier sideways. This improves maintenance.
Sensor amplifier is equipped with one-touch connector, eliminating the need for tools.
the need for tools. Optical communications are used to send and receive data from the end units instead of a link cable. This facilitates easy installation and maintenance.
A parallel output connector allows the output signal from each sensor unit to be captured in real time.
All cable connections have been placed on the left side of the communication unit in order to make the most effective use of installation space.
The SC-GU3-01 Communication Unit for CC-Link is 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.
Mitsubishi Electric’s iQ Works utility can be used to control digital sensors connected to the SC-GU3-01.
The following functionality is supported by using iQ Works to load CSP+ data.
(Note) CSP+: CC-Link family system profile
|CC-Link configuration information can be used to easily check the configuration of devices connected to the SC-GU3-01. (sensor types [fiber, pressure etc.], cascading configuration, number of units)
|A list of sensor-specific parameter data (write / read) can be acquired and changed.
|SC-GU3-01 device allocations can be displayed by loading CSP+ data.
|This approach dramatically reduces the need to consult the SC-GU3-01 specifications and manual.
