New lower priced C-more Micro EA3 series HMI panels, available in touch and non-touch versions, have a 3.1-inch STN LCD monochrome display and 12 selectable LED-driven backlight colors. The panels feature a 128 x 64 pixel display, and five user-defined function keys each with a red LED indicator. Each panel has one RJ12 serial port for programming and PLC connection (supports only AutomationDirect/Modbus PLC protocols). The EA3-S3ML-RN C-more Micro non-touch panel, priced at only $98.00, is NEMA 1 as shipped but is NEMA 4/4X indoor, when installed with an available optional gasket. The EA3-S3ML-R C-more Micro touch panel ($146.00) is NEMA 4/4X and IP65 (indoor) rated. These panels are powered through the RJ-12 serial port of most AutomationDirect PLCs, or from the USB port of a PC using the EA-MG-PGM-CBL (USB to RJ12) cable.
