  1. Hi, I currently have a Mitsubishi FX2N PLC and it currently communications to a HMI via RS-485 and from the HMI there is an RS-232 connection to a Red Lion unit for data logging. Im looking at removing the Red Lion unit and using that serial to get into the PLC. There is no more room in the Panel for an additional ethernet card or changing the RS-485 as this is needed for the HMI. Does anyone know of a module or software that would work to convert the serial to ethernet on this type of mitsubishi PLC?
    I wish I could help but I don't have any experience with the IQ-F plcs. We do have an upcoming article planned for later this week that might help - and the author typically will try to answer questions too.
