Before using this product, please read this manual and the relevant manuals introduced in this manual carefully and pay full attention to safety to handle the product correctly. The precautions given in this manual are concerned with only this product. For the safety precautions of the programmable controller system, please read the User's Manual for the CPU module used.
  • Page 4 [Design Precautions] WARNING When the programmable controller system security needs to be protected against illegal access from an external device via a network, take measures at the user's discretion. Also, when it is necessary to ensure safety of the programmable controller system against unauthorized access from any external device via the Internet, include measures such as a firewall.
  • Page 5 [Installation Precautions] CAUTION Completely turn off the externally supplied power used in the system before mounting or removing the module. Not doing so could result in damage to the product. Tighten the screw in the specified torque range. Undertightening can cause a drop, short circuit or malfunction. Overtightening can cause a drop, short circuit or malfunction due to damage to the screw or module.
  • Page 6 [Wiring Precautions] CAUTION Be sure there are no foreign substances such as sawdust or wiring debris inside the module. Such debris could cause fires, damage, or erroneous operation. A protective film is attached to the top of the module to prevent foreign matter, such as wire chips, from entering the module during wiring.
  • Page 7 [Operation Precautions] WARNING Make sure safety before controlling a running programmable controller (e.g. data modification). Do not write any data to the "System area" in the buffer memory of the intelligent function module. As for signals output from the programmable controller CPU to the intelligent function module, never output (ON) a "Use prohibited"...

    OVERVIEW CHAPTER 1 OVERVIEW This manual explains the specifications, preparatory procedures, functions, and troubleshooting for the MELSEC-Q series MES interface module. When applying the following program examples to the actual system, make sure to examine the applicability and confirm that it will not cause system control problems. The MES interface module links the programmable controller (Production equipment) device data with information system (Manufacturing Execution System) database without communication gateways.
  • Page 27: Features

    OVERVIEW 1.1 Features This section explains the features of MX MESInterface. (1) Connection with the information system is enabled by simple settings without program Access to information system databases can be realized simply by making the necessary settings with the setting tool. There is no need to write programs for accessing databases, so the engineering costs for system construction can be reduced and the work period can be shortened.
  • Page 28 OVERVIEW (2) The information system load can be reduced. Data can be monitored on the MES interface module side and when the conditions are met, the data can be sent to the information system. Also, the data can be operated and the results of the operations can be sent to the information system.
  • Page 29 OVERVIEW (3) Buffering function for reliable data acquisition/transmission (a) Even if the frequency of data transmission triggers is high, no trigger will be missed. (Trigger buffering function) When multiple sets of conditions for data transmission are met in a concentrated manner, their data and trigger times can be buffered in the module's internal memory.
  • Page 30 OVERVIEW (b) Data to be send to the database are protected even if a communication error occurs. (DB buffering function) When an error occurs during performing communication with a database, stored procedure execution requests or the SQL texts failed to send can be stored in a CompactFlash card.
  • Page 31 OVERVIEW (4) Log data are available in the event of an access error After connection with a database, when there is a communication error, a log of the error contents can be recorded to the database side. Analyzing the log can protect data and analyze the error. Database DB Connection Service...
  • Page 32 OVERVIEW (6) Supporting diverse databases When designing a new system, a wide range of database types can be selected. Even when connecting to the existing system, the system can be transferred without changing the existing database. (7) Access independent of the database table configuration is possible. Freely designed database tables can be used for access to databases.
