- Easy connection and set up.
With three industry firsts, this unit enables high-speed connection of displacement sensors!
Internal automatic processing
No load on the CPU
The UQ1 obtains measured values from the displacement sensor automatically and updates calculation results and judgment in periods with maximum speed of 100μs（UQ1-01）500μs（UQ1-02）.
These processes are performed by the UQ1 unit itself so there is no load on the CPU.
Equipped with I/O terminal
High-speed response up
By equipping I/O terminals (2 each) to the UQ1, highspeed response times of max. 100μs（UQ1-01）500μs（UQ1-02） have been achieved independent of the CPU scan times.
Infrared communication between UQ1s
High-speed unique infrared communication “FIrST”
UQ1 units can communicate through “FIrST” infrared communication which was originally developed for the UQ1 series.
Calculations such as adding values from displacement sensor connected to other units can be processed at maximum speed of 100 μs.
Easy connection and set up.
Communication setup is not needed
UQ1 series is recognized simply by installing on the MELSEC-Q series base unit with no communication setup required.
Unit setup is not necessary, nor is displacement sensor communication setup.
Easy-to-read LED display
Although only the communication status was displayed in the case of conventional general-purpose communication units, UQ1 series models feature a greatly expanded display that enable the following statuses to be confirmed.
Software with intuitive operation
Dedicated software “UQ1 Navigator” is now available (free-of-charge). Easily access the intuitive software, change the setup parameters and check the measurement status without knowledge of PLC and ladder programming.
Touch panel is also easy to use
Data for GOT touch panels and sample ladder data are also available. Operation confirmation can be performed just by installing the sample data. Also, because the UQ1 features an embedded storage function, saving and batch acquisition of all measurement data is possible.
