Retrofit package to replace control system

MEAU has developed a retrofit package designed to replace control systems using the company's Meldasmagic 64 controls. The retrofit package includes a control unit, LCD, keypad, and two power supplies.


Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has developed a retrofit package to replace such control systems currently using Meldasmagic 64 controls. The retrofit can be used in any machine that runs on a Magic64 based system, including horizontal and vertical lathes, vertical milling machines and bridge mills.

The retrofit package consists of an M65S control unit, LCD, keypad, and two power supplies, all mounted to a frame which bolts into the space of the existing control system. Mitsubishi Electric Automation also supplies all necessary communication and power cabling. 

The control system is fully compatible with existing hardware (servo and spindle systems, and machine I/O). It provides increased capabilities and functionality, with more than 60 options included as standard, some of which were not available on the Magic64. It also provides quicker boot up times and improved reliability.
