Mitsubishi FX series USB PLC programming interface conversion
cable.USB/RS422 interface for Mitsubishi
FX3U/FX2N/FX1N/FX0/FX0S/FX1S series PLC, 2.5 meters, with
communication indicator, the largest communications range is up to
FX-USB-AW is the programming cable in which USB interface provided
both the serial connection and RS422 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).
FX-USB-AW principle and figure structure:
FX-USB-AW programming cable simulate USB port as traditional serial
port (usually COM3), which enables existing programming software(GX
to communicate through simulated traditional port and PLC devices.

Setting of GX Developer
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 next step 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 the traditional
programming cables with RS232 interfaces. Note: DB25M plugs and
MD8M plugs of the RS422 interface can not be used at the same time.
Open the main windows form(GX Developer) choose Online” menu then
click Transfer Setupand will appear Transfer Setup” window.
Click Serial” button of the PC side I/F, and choice the COM X
interface as it in the Device Manager.
