    RS-232 cable wiring help Here is the wiring diagram for the R020 cable from Mitsubishi that 'should' let you read and write from a FCUA-MP10 single axis drive/control to a PC running GX Developer: My thinking was to wire a connection cable from the drive SIO port to the Tripp Lite Keyspan...

    Need PLC Program software or programmer for Mitsubishi M520AM and Model E Control

    Anybody familiar with Meldas controls know what Mitsubishi PLC model should be selected when connecting to 1) an M500 control and 2)the single-axis Model E (FCUA-MP10 series) control via RS-232? You'd think it'd equate to one of Mitsubishi's stand-alone PLC offerings. Can't find anything in...

    Need PLC Program software or programmer for Mitsubishi M520AM and Model E Control

    Howa 320H-VJC parameters lost

    I have a Howa 320H-VCJ vertical machining center with a Meldas 500M control. Parameters on the main control are fine, but batteries are dead in the Magazine control(Meldas FCUA-MP10-03)and ATC control(Meldas FCUA-MP10-06S1). After replacing batteries for the Magazine and ATC controls, I used...

    Moly grease replacement in old Howa 320-VCJ?

    New member. I picked up a 1996 Howa 320-VCJ machining center recently. 24 years of hard use with tons of goop+chips, but critical surfaces all appear to be in good shape. Machine has been stripped and cleaned. Linear guides have been re-built with new wipers. I want to leave the ball nuts...
