MELSEC-F series

PLC standard counters can count at some 10 Hz maximum, but using FX PLC built-in high speed counters, high speed pulse inputs can be counted.

Built-in high speed counter numbers and allocation

Built-in high speed counters use general inputs X000 to X007. Input method and input terminal numbers are determined based on whether the counter uses 1-phase or 2-phase, and start or reset functions.

FX3S, FX3G, FX3GC, FX3U, FX3UC Series PLC

U: Up-counting input  D: Down-counting input  A: A phase input  B: B phase input  R: External reset input  S: External start input

[Examples]
By using C238 (1-phase 1-count), X003 automatically becomes high-speed input terminal.
Also, by using C252 (2-phase 2-count), X000 automically becomes A phase input,
X001 becomes B phase input, and X002 becomes reset input.

Maximum frequency that the PLC can process

For the maximum frequency that can be counted, please refer to the "Counter number max. response frequency" in the previous tables. Furthermore, each PLC has an "overall frequency" processing limit.
For details, please refer to each product manual.

FX3U, FX3U PLC counter modes

2-phase 1 edge count counter can be used as a 4 edge count counter by combining a special auxiliary relay (M8388, M8198, M8199).
