The GX Configurator range comprises a suit of software tools that allow quick and easy setup of PLCs, Networks and Motion systems. GX Configurator DP can be used to configure all Profibus/DP modules of Mitsubishi’s modular PLCs. In addition to MELSEC PLCs it also supports connection of Mitsubishi frequency inverters, the E series of graphical control units and remote I/O modules.
Integrating slave modules from third-party manufacturers is as easy as importing the GSD data. GX Configurator DP makes Profibus/DP very easy to handle. To configure your network with this software system you just drag ready-to-use graphical images of your devices onto the Profibus/DP network representation on the screen.
Then you enter the device station numbers and specify which PLC addresses you want to allocate to the remote Profibus/DP slaves. A wide range of user parameters are supported for the Profibus/DP-Slaves; configuration is handled transparently with the GSD files.
