Mitsubishi Electric Automation All-in-one Ethernet drives

The FR-A800-E and FR-F800-E VFDs provide Ethernet connectivity as a standard feature, allowing the drives to be connected directly to automation equipment and plant information management systems. The inverters can be connected to an MES network and provide the ability to exchange data in either direction. They can act as an interconnected VFD “team,” without referring to a separate controller, by entering PLC programming directly into the drives. They can operate simultaneously within an Ethernet environment and almost any other automation network, forming a convenient gateway between a plant’s other automation equipment.
