Compact HMI can act as an automation gateway

15 March 2016

Mitsubishi Electric has added a new model to its range of HMIs which is said to act as a gateway device to an entire automation system – including devices such as PLCs, servo drives, frequency inverters and robots.

The GT2705 completes the current GT27 series line-up offering a 5.7in TFT touch screen, gesture control and high-performance graphics processing in addition to extensive connectivity capabilities.

The unit is programmed via Mitsubishi Electric’s GT Works3, which including built-in object libraries and a suite of pre-defined templates and screens to enable efficient and intuitive commissioning and updating.

Several de-bugging functions are also available as standard and whole user manuals can be stored on the HMI for direct access in the field. This feature can help increase plant up-time by allowing for more efficient on-site support.

The new GT2705 has full data logging capabilities and a convenient back-up/restore function. Additionally it can communicate directly with SQL, Oracle and Access databases, rather than needing the support of a PC.

Physically, the unit can interface with control networks via Ethernet, RS-232, and RS-422/485 as standard and there are options for CC-Link, CC-Link IE and MELSECNET/H. There is also a SD card slot, USB host & device ports and a direct PLC bus connection.
