HMI series supports up to four communication protocols
Idec’s HG2G-5T series of enhanced human-machine interfaces (HMIs) are designed to communicate with a variety of different programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and other controllers. The Enhanced HG2G-5T Series color version TFT LCD HMI has a resolution of 65,536 colors and a brightness of 500 cd/m2. The Enhanced HMI HG2G-5T series is also designed to support up to three different communication protocols simultaneously. The serial port can support both RS-232 and RS-422/485 simultaneously, and the Ethernet port can support up to four hosts and three user communication protocols at the same time. It also has an operating temperature range of -20 to 60 C, and it is rated IP66/IP66F and NEMA 4X for outdoor installation and washdown areas.
Other features include a built-in web server, which allows full remote monitoring and control via any web browser running on a PC, smartphone or tablet. Remote users can monitor current values or processes—and also control operation, print information, switch screens, or even change program values. Users can also remotely perform troubleshooting, run tests and perform maintenance.
