The 53-ft long Solutions in Motion showroom has been appearing at tradeshows, open houses, training seminars and other events across North America.

Solutions In Motion has dual expandable walls, creating a space of more than 510 square-feet that can comfortably accommodate 25 people. It also has a 50- x 20-foot canopy for outdoor events.

Interactive demonstration pods in the Solutions Gallery with 32-in. high-definition video monitors display Mitsubishi Electric PLC products, servos, variable frequency drives (VFDs), human-machine interfaces (HMIs), and networks in a wide range of manufacturing applications. Overhead sound domes produce crisp, clear audio in a small area so guests can watch demonstrations without hearing sound from others.

Shown in action are a Mitsubishi Electric RH3 ceiling mount SCARA robot; a gear mesh device featuring MR-J3 rotary and linear servos; and vibration suppression equipment. Opposite that are Mitsubishi Electric’s e-F@ctory and connectivity solutions; and an F700 fan and pump controller packaged solution.

Mitsubishi Electric’s EnergyPaq energy monitoring system is on display at the front of the trailer. Voltage, current, power factor and total power consumption for eight circuits, including incoming power, HVAC, an air compressor and all of the demonstration pods are monitored and recorded. Energy data are stored in the cloud and accessible via the Internet.

Nearly all hardware is connected by an onboard wireless LAN with 3G/4G cellular broadband access for remote monitoring, analysis and upgrading. This also provides a hotspot for Internet access.
