FX-USB-AW is the programming cable in which USB interface provided
both the serial connection and RS232 signal conversion. Under the
control of computer-driven driver, the programming cable makes it
possible for the computer's USB interface to simulate the
traditional serial (known as COM interface), thus various existing
programming software such as communications software, monitoring
software and other applications can be normally used.
The working power supply of this cable is directly from the USB
port, but not the PLC programming interface. The two-color LED on
the converter box indicates data’s transceiving status.
FX-USB-AW is applicable to the FX3U series PLC which has the MD8F
radio socket of Mitsubishi, such as
FX3U/FX2N/FX1N/FX0/FX0N/FX0S/FX1S, and it can substitute the
FX-232AW module. The largest communications distance is two
Do choose the USB-SC09 programming cable, for A and all FX series
Mitsubishi PLC (including the old products FX2/FX2C).

USB device drivers should be installed before using FX-USB-AW
programming cable, which are available on the CD-ROM sold together
with the cable. And for the specific installation steps, please
refer to the instruction files on the CD-ROM drivers, and details
are not necessarily listed here.
After completing Driver installation, the corresponding COM port
for the FX-USB-AW programming cable will be displayed in the Device
Manager” of Window. The step next is just to choose this COM port
in the programming software and other application software and keep
other communication parameters as in the Default settings. And the
following steps are exactly the same as in the traditional
programming cables with RS232 interfaces.
the largest communications range between the FX-USB-AWprogramming
cable and the PLC is up to two kilometers (9600 bps)The user must
follow the self-made plans to extend cable. Transmission Line
should be 0.22mm2 or more, twisted pair wire. When the distance is
over 2,000 m , RS422 repeater (model: E485GA, products of FOURSTAR
as well)could be installed to extend the distance
Please Note: USB interface cable cannot be extended.
Due to internal resistance have been installed in FX-USB-AW and the
PLC, no external terminal resistance is needed.
