Announcing our support of The Hyperloop UPV Project

We’re pleased to announce our support of the Hyperloop project at Universitat Politècnica de València (Valencia, Spain). Hyperloop UPV (a.k.a. Hyperloop Makers UPV) is a team of students from the Universitat Politècnica de València (Valencia, Spain) designing a rail-free concept of Hyperloop. They were awarded Top Design Concept and Propulsion/Compression Subsystem Technical Excellence Award at SpaceX’s Design Weekend, the first phase of the Hyperloop Pod Competition held in Texas on January 2016. Their design stands out for its use of magnetic levitation based on attraction to the top of the tube thanks to their unique levitation units located at the Continue reading

New Product Announcement : cMT3090 9.7″ CloudHMI

We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new member of the cMT Series of HMI, the cMT3090, a welcome addition to the cMT range alongside the cMT3151 15″ HMI offering a good alternative to applications that previously would have require a cMT-SVR-100 & a cMT-iV5 panel. Physically similar in size and appearance to the existing MT8090XE, the cMT3090 boasts a built-in CloudHMI server enabling access from iOS or Android device, or PC running the  cMTViewer application. With an EasyAccess 2.0 licence built` in, remote access is a breeze. The cMT3090 is programmed using EasyBuilder Pro, a free download from our Continue reading

New Product Announcement : cMT-G01

In IIoT applications, data integration plays a very important role, to achieve data integration, it’s essential that communication between onsite machines and upper layer data management systems (SCADA, ERP…etc.) is seamless, however, in factories where very often each controller uses a different communication protocol, data integration is challenging. With more than 20 years of experience of HMI development, the Weintek R&D Team have released the IIoT Smart Communication Gateway: cMT-G01 as a solution for data transfer and integration in the IIoT. With in-built de-facto standard IIoT protocols, MQTT and OPC UA and the ability to process data just as a Continue reading

More Discrete and Analogue i/o Modules to Productivity2000® Line

AutomationDirect’s Productivity2000 programmable controller line now includes additional low-cost discrete and analogue input and output modules. The new AC and DC discrete I/O modules include 8-point, 100-120 VAC input and output modules, 8 and 15-point, 3.3-24 VDC input and output modules and high-density, 32-point,12-24 VDC input modules. These I/O modules allow easy connections for photo eyes, proximity sensors, limit switches, pushbuttons, light curtains, or any other discrete control device. The new 12-bit, low-resolution, 4-channel, current and voltage analogue I/O modules are available to precisely measure and control process variables such as level, flow, and pressure. And for easy I/O module Continue reading

HMI with WiFi Capability – MT-8103iE

Weintek have brought a great new innovation – the MT-8103iE, an HMI with built-in WiFi! As the 4th industrial revolution takes shape, a growing number of users require their HMIs to connect with ERP or other monitoring systems. Although Ethernet is the most widely used communication protocol between HMI and monitoring systems, not every factory has Ethernet wiring – in this case, Wi-Fi connectivity provides a great solution. Features 10.1″ 1024 x 600 TFT LCD with LED Backlight COM2 and COM3 RS-485 support MPI 187.5K (please use one at a time!) PCB coating process ensures high reliability to resist from Continue reading

cMT Series HMI helps build your IIoT environment through OPC UA

In the era of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), not only should the connectivity of equipment on the plant floor improve, upper layer management systems, such as SCADA, MES, ERP…etc, should be able to have immediate access to data produced by factory machines. Weintek provides the best solution for communication between onsite machines and upper layer management systems. This is achieved with the cMT Series Smart HMIs (cMT-SVR & cMT3151), using the most common M2M protocols: MQTT and OPC UA. In this architecture, the cMT Series HMI are not just for operating machines, collecting and managing data, but also become Continue reading
