In the previous article, plc247.com showed you how to use PLC FX3U to control Stepping Motor in the simplest way. Today I would like to continue to guide you to use another Mitsubishi PLC, FX5U to control Step Motor.
PLC Mitsubishi FX5U is an upgraded line of FX3U with many new features, so the configurations are also a small different from FX3U.
FX5U & Stepping Motor “Connection Diagram”
+ Depending on the type of Step Driver, we can control it with 5V or 24V, if controlled by 5V, we need a resistor R=2k2 (Ohm) to reduce the voltage.
+ DM542 Driver supports control from 5 to 24V
