Making PLCs transparent through HMIs

21 September 2016

The latest version of Panasonic’s HMWin programming software supports a transparent communication mode for its PLCs.

The transparent mode (or through function) allows a Panasonic PLC to be programmed and monitored with its FP-WIN Pro programming software while the HM 500 series HMI is connected between it and a PC. No special settings are required and the mode is automatically enabled.

Ethernet interfaces and the new transparent mode make remote control, monitoring, maintenance, and programming possible via the HMI for all of the compact PLC ranage. Data data from machines and equipment connected to the PLC can be accessed via a PC and a standard browser for effective data logging.
