4.1 Replace MELSECNET(ΙΙ) with MELSECNET/10

4.1.2 Upgrade to MELSECNET/H network system utilizing existing MELSECNET/B twisted pair cable

Solution and Benefit
When replacing A (Large Type) Series CPU with Q Series CPU in a MELSECNET/B data link
system, the network can be effortlessly updated to twisted bus type MELSECNET/H (PLC to PLC
network) because the existing MELSECNET/B twisted pair cable can be directly utilized. (New cable
installation is not required.)
The following is an example of replacing MELSECNET/B with twisted bus type MELSECNET/H (PLC to PLC
network) utilizing the existing twisted pair cable.
● Instructions
(1) Replace all A Series CPUs found in the existing MELSECNET/B system with Q Series CPUs.
(2) Utilize the existing MELSECNET/B twisted pair cable.
(3) Modify the terminals of the network modules because the cable connection method has been changed from
screw terminal block type to spring clamp terminal block type.
