New Product Announcement: MT8053iE 4.3″ HMI with Dual Ethernet & Built-in EasyAccess 2.0

Product Introduction: Ethernet is gradually becoming the standard interface for PLCs and controllers, the demand for data exchange with upper layer devices (SCADA) over the network and integration with cloud services is also increasing. To meet these demands, Weintek released models with dual Ethernet ports: MT8073iE(7”), MT8090XE(10”), and cMT Series, which all received positive customer feedback. To provide users with a wider choice of screen sizes, Weintek have launched a new 4.3″ dual-Ethernet HMI – MT8053iE. Adding new I/O ports into such small enclosure is always a challenge due to space constraints, however, Weintek pushed the boundaries to make it possible.

New Weintek Driver Announcement – Automation Direct Productivity Series

To compliment the excellent Productivity Series Controller from Automation Direct, Weintek have added a dedicated driver and tag import facility so user Tags from the controller project can be easily added to an HMI program. First write your Productivity Controller program in Productivity Suite… If you’re familiar with Productivity Suite, you no doubt know that you can define tags for your i/o, registers, timer values etc as you go making it a very intuitive controller to use. The Productivity tag database is accessed from the edit menu. In this example, we’re only looking at Discrete i/o, Integers & Booleans… You Continue reading New Weintek Driver Announcement – Automation Direct Productivity Series

New Product Announcement – cMT3071 – 7″ HMI

Product Introduction and Features Being compact and cost-effective, Weintek 7” HMI have always been a popular product. With that in mind, Weintek have introduced a new 7” HMI: cMT3071. The new model aims to make cMT Series models a more accessible option allowing more of our customers to build their smart factories using cMT’s rich, powerful features. The cMT3071 boasts higher hardware spec than its iE/iP/eMT Series counterparts in every aspect, with better computational performance it delivers a richer user experience. Equipped with a dual-core Cortex A9 1GHz CPU, 4GB Flash and 1GB RAM, the cMT3071 runs more smoothly, allows projects with Continue reading New Product Announcement – cMT3071 – 7″ HMI

New Product Annoucement – Analog and Temperature Modules For Weintek iR Series i/o

Earlier in 2018, Weintek released a high-efficiency control solution: HMI+CODESYS+I/O Module, which has received positive feedback from customers. To make it a more complete solution, Weintek has developed new modules for the iR Series modules: Analog I/O modules and a Temperature module. iR Series i/o combined with a CODESYS enabled HMI can take care of complex tasks that traditionally would have required a separate PLC – saving you both time and money. The new four new iR Series Analog Modules are: iR-AI04-VI 4 channel Analog Input iR-AQ04-VI 4 channel Analog Output iR-AM06-VI 4 channel Analog Input + 2 channel Analog Continue reading New Product Annoucement – Analog and Temperature Modules For Weintek iR Series i/o
