Lamonde Automation is delighted to announce that they’ve signed a new supplier partnership with Teknokol, manufacturers of HMI enclosure systems, which can be wall-mounted, machine mounted, or mounted with support arms.
Touch gesture, supported on selected new cMT X Series HMI, provides easier and even more intuitive operation, allowing operators to use a variety of gestures such as swiping or pinching to make the HMI execute specified functions, without the need for on-screen buttons.
Automation Direct’s EA9 C-more HMI programming and configuration software is now a free download! C-more HMI touch panels provide a graphical interface designed to interchange and display graphics, animation and data to and from a PLC by merely touching the screen.
Added BRX serial communications modules provide four isolated RS-232 ports that support communications flow control or RS-422 serial ports. Also available are BRX single-channel RS-232 (with flow control) and RS-422 Pluggable Option Modules. Supported protocols include Do-more! Protocol, Modbus RTU (Master/Slave), K-Sequence, and ASCII (In/Out). Data rates are 1200 to 115,200 bps.
Following great feedback for the cMT3162X HMI, Weintek have announced the release of a lightweight version, cMT3161X. The cMT3161X is broadly similar to the cMT3162X and retains many of its key features, market-wise, however, it is positioned slightly differently making the cMT X Series an attractive option in cost-sensitive applications.
Lightweight and affordable, 7” HMI have been widely adopted in many different industries and are a firm favourite. With this in mind, Weintek have released new 7” HMI models in the cMT X Series range: cMT3072X and cMT3072XH (“cMT3072X(H)”) to help users with IIoT integration in their smart factories whilst also providing exceptional user experience.
With lightning-fast operation and novel features, the cMT X Series has been enthusiastically received by customers; responding to customer requests, Weintek now proudly releases the cMT-FHDX, an HDMI-enabled member of cMT X series family. Via HDMI*, the cMT-FHDX supports 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) video output that can be displayed on a very large screen, giving users an HMI larger than any conventional HMI available on the market.
This TechTip is about automatically changing the HMI window when logout, or Auto logout occurs. This could be useful if you want to ensure that if a user with elevated privileges leaves the HMI without logging out then the HMI will return to a normal operating or information window.
This TechTip is about using a macro for a simple calculation to determine the difference between 2 values. To calculate the difference between 2 values, first we use the “>=” operator to determine if value1 is greater than or equal to value2, if this is the case, our result is calculated value1 – value2. If value2 is greater than value1 then our result calculation is value2 – value1.
A frequently asked question we receive is “How do I create a multi-state lamp – for example to use with a Word Lamp?” This TechTip will hopefully make the process of creating a multi-state shape object clearer.
n this TechTip we’ll be looking at printing a label to a Zebra printer by sending the ZPL string to the com port or Ethernet port on the HMI. Zebra printers are increasingly popular in production and packaging and are highly configurable and able to print barcodes, QR codes, Data matrix codes etc. (for reference, the printer used in this demo was a Zebra GK420t.)
