Lookout Compatibility With Mitsubishi IQ-R and FX5 PLCs?

I am new to both Lookout and the Mitsubishi platforms. My client has Lookout 6.7.1 and wants to migrate some Modicon Quantum and GE 90-30 PLCs to the Mitsubishi IQ-R and FX5 lines of PLC. Has anybody successfully integrated these Mitsubishi PLCs into Lookout?

As far as I recall, Lookout has no direct support for the FX5 PLCs. You could setup an OPC server for the FX5 and have Lookout connect as an OPC Client.


Is your client aware that NI Lookout is a discontinued product and no longer supported (except for this forum). The end user really needs to evaluate an HMI/SCADA package to replace Lookout.

Thank you for the quick reply.


I do not believe the client is aware Lookout has been discontinued. This is something we will inform them.
