With all the new and upgraded features, now the new 5.7” supports:
End users and OEMs often need an HMI that can communicate with a variety of different PLCs and controllers, and the HG2G Enhanced Communication HMI delivers this functionality by supporting up to four communication protocols simultaneously.
Remote Internet Access
With the New 5.7” touchscreen, you can remotely access, monitor and control your touchscreen through a web browser on a computer, PDA or Smartphone. It’s like you have the touchscreen in front of you, you can both monitor and control operation. No additional software tools or modules needed to use the Remote Monitor & Control function. Up to 5 clients can remotely monitor and control simultaneously.
USB Flash Drive (USB Port A)
USB flash drive enables easy, convenient data transfer. Inserting a USB flash drive into the touchscreen will automatically bring up the USB transfer menu. Both IDEC HMI and PLC programs can be uploaded/downloaded from/to the USB flash drive. Data Logging, Alarm Log, Recipe and Screen Capture data can be stored in the USB flash drive as well.
Backlight Life A common problem with HMIs in this class is limited backlight life, particularly since the backlight is typically not field-replaceable. The HG2G Enhanced Communication HMI LED backlight addresses this issue with a best-in-class life of 100,000 hours, which will provide many years of operation as the backlight can be automatically switched off when the HMI is not in use.
The New Upgrade 5.7” screen is an excellent environmental tolerance with a very wide range of operating temperature -20 degree C to +60 degree C. The New 5.7” HG2G HMIs have new approval ratings. With the addition of UL, Type 4X and Type 13 approvals (on the front panel), New HG2G models now provide customers with a degree of protection Type 4X, Type 13, UL 508, and Class 1 Div 2 hazardous location.
This makes HG2G HMIs suitable for applications in harsher environment conditions, especially where protection against corrosion is required such as in the following:
- Oil / Gas
- Food processing
- Waste water treatment plants
- Packaging and bottling plants
The New 5.7”can be mounted with the screen orientation set to portrait or landscape mode depending on space requirements. According to your specific application needs, this allows you the flexibility of mounting the touchscreen.
The possibilities are endless!
