Advanced Servo Gain Adjustment Function
Just turn on the one-touch tuning function to complete servo gain adjustment automatically, including machine resonance filter, advanced vibration suppression control II*1, and robust filter for maximizing your machine performance. This function also sets responsibility automatically, while the real-time auto tuning requires manual setting. Moreover, a new method*2 allows to create an optimum tuning command inside the servo amplifier.
*1.The advanced vibration suppression control II automatically adjusts one frequency.
*2.This new method is available with MR-J4-B/MR-J4W_-B/MR-J4-A with software version of C1 or later.
Advanced Vibration Suppression Control II
The advanced vibration suppression control II suppresses two types of low frequency vibrations owing to vibration suppression algorithm which supports three-inertia system. This function is effective in suppressing residual vibration with relatively low frequency of approximately 100 Hz or less generated at the end of an arm and in a machine, enabling a shorter settling time. Adjustment is easily performed on MR Configurator2.
Achieving both high responsibility and stability was difficult with the conventional control in high-inertia systems with belts and gears such as printing and packaging machines. Now, this function enables the high responsibility and the stability at the same time without adjustment. The robust filter gradually reduces the fluctuation of torque in a wide frequency range and achieves more stability as compared to the prior model.
Expanded Machine Resonance Suppression Filter
With advanced filter structure, applicable frequency range is expanded from between 100 Hz and 4500 Hz to between 10 Hz and 4500 Hz. Additionally, the number of simultaneously applicable filters is increased from two to five, improving vibration suppression performance of a machine.
Lost Motion Compensation Function
This function suppresses quadrant protrusion caused by friction and torsion generated when the servo motor rotates in reverse direction. Therefore, the accuracy of circular path will be improved in trajectory control used in XY table, etc.
* This function is not available with MR-J4W2-B and MR-J4W3-B.
Super Trace Control

* This function is not available with MR-J4W2-B and MR-J4W3-B.
A Variety of Functions for Various Applications
* Use a compatible controller. Tightening & Press-fit Control
Position/speed control switches to torque control smoothly without stopping or changing the speed or the torque rapidly. Load to the machine is reduced, and high-quality molding is achieved for an application where control is switched from position to torque such as Tightening & Press-fit control or insertion of a work, and cap or screw tightening.
* Available with MR-J4-B/MR-J4W2-B/MR-J4W3-B.
Master-slave Operation Function
With the master-slave operation function of MR-J4-B servo amplifier*, the torque of a master axis will be transmitted to slave axes through the driver communication. This enables a torque control operation with the slave axes, using the torque as a command. No additional wiring is required because the torque data is transmitted from the master axis to the slave axes via SSCNETIII/H.
* This function is available with MR-J4-B servo amplifier with software version A8 or later.
Scale Measurement Function
The scale measurement function of MR-J4-GF/MR-J4-B*1/MR-J4W2-B*1 servo amplifiers*2 enables to transmit position information of a scale measurement encoder to the controller when the scale measurement encoder is connected in semi closed loop control.
The data of linear or synchronous encoders are transmitted to the servo system controller via the servo amplifier, achieving less wiring.

Built-in Positioning Function for Simple System
Servo Amplifier with Built-in Positioning Function
MR-J4-A-RJ*1 has a built-in positioning function, enabling positioning operation with point table, program-based, and indexer (turret) methods.
With this servo amplifier, a positioning system is configured without a Positioning module (command pulse). Positioning command is executed by input/output signals or RS-422/RS-485 communication (up to 32 axes). MR Configurator2*2 allows easy setting of the positioning data.
*1. Use MR-J4-A-RJ servo amplifiers with software version B3 or later when using the positioning function.
*2. Use MR Configurator2 with software version 1.25B or later. Be sure to update your MR Configurator2 to the latest version.
Setting position data (target position), servo motor speed, and acceleration/deceleration time constants in point table is as easy as setting a parameter. Up to 255 points are settable for the point table. The positioning operation is performed with a start signal after selecting the point table No.
* Point table can be set with push buttons on the servo amplifier or MR-PRU03 parameter unit along with MR Configurator2.
Create positioning programs with dedicated commands. The positioning operation is performed with a start signal after selecting the program No. The program-based method enables more complex positioning operation than the point table method. Maximum of 256 programs are settable. (The total number of steps of program: 640)
* MR Configurator2 is required to create programs.
Perform positioning operation by specifying equally divided stations (up to 255 stations). The travel distance will be calculated automatically based on the number of equally divided stations set in the parameter. The positioning operation is performed with a start signal after selecting the station position No.
In addition to rotation direction specifying indexer and shortest rotating indexer, backlash compensation and override function are also available
* Fully closed loop control mode and linear servo motor control mode are not supported by the indexer (turret) method.
New Useful Functions with Positioning Function
New useful functions are added to the positioning function: simple cam function, encoder following function, command pulse input through function, mark sensor input compensation function, and communication functions (MODBUS® RTU, Point to Point positioning, and current position latch function). Apply these useful functions to a wide variety of applications to configure positioning system easily. Use MR-J4-A-RJ servo amplifier with software version B7 or later. These functions are not available with MR-J4-03A6-RJ.
MR Configurator2 enables to create various patterns of cam data. Command pulse or point table/program start signal is used as input to the simple cam. The input command will be outputted to the servo motor according to the cam data.
With the encoder following function, the servo amplifier receives A/B-phase output signal from the synchronous encoder as command pulse, and the input command will be outputted to the servo motor according to the cam data. Setting cam data that matches with the sheet length, a diameter of the rotary knife axis, and the synchronous section of the sheet enables a system in which the conveyor axis and the rotary knife axis are synchronized. Up to 4 Mpulses/s of input from a synchronous encoder is compatible with the servo amplifier.
The command pulse input through function allows the first axis to output A/B-phase pulses which are received from the synchronous encoder to the next axis, enabling a system in which the second and later axes are synchronized with the synchronous encoder.
In addition to RS-422/RS-485 communication (Mitsubishi general-purpose AC servo protocol), RS-485 communication (MODBUS® RTU protocol) is supported. MODBUS® RTU protocol is compatible with function code 03h (Read holding registers), etc.
Controlling and monitoring of the servo amplifier is possible by external devices.
* RJ-45 junction connector terminal block and RJ-45 compatible cable designed for MR-J4-A-RJ are required.
Up to 255 points of Point to Point positioning are enabled when the target position is set in the point table in advance. Rewriting the next target position during a operation is also possible by the communication function.
Based on the data latched by the mark detection function (current position latch*), a target position is compensated by being written in the point table.
* When the mark detection signal turns on, a current position will be latched, and the latched data will be read with the communication function.
Example: Executing positioning compensation when a product is dispositioned by 50 on a handling pallet.
Start an operation by specifying point table No. 1 (target position: 1000).
Communication function (current latch) measures a position gap with the mark detection function and writes the position gap of 50 to the target position in point table No. 2 for compensation during the operation.
After the operation of point table No. 1 is completed with a position gap of 50, start the operation by specifying point table No. 2. The product will be set to the right position.
