HMI family gains a 15in model

07 June 2019

IDEC Corporation has released the HG5G-V 15in human-machine interface (HMI) touchscreen, the largest model in its High-Performance family. This HMI offers more display real estate so applications can readily show extensive process information with improved aesthetics and visibility.

The TFT-LCD screen features a resolution of 1024x768 pixels, producing vivid images and giving users an additional option in the High-Performance family scaled to fit larger applications. Like all HMIs in the series, the HG5G-V offers brightness of 650 cd/m2 to deliver good visibility even in high-glare locations such as direct sunlight. Its has a backlight life rating of 100,000 hours minimum.

The HMI boasts an operating temperature range of -20°C to +60°C – as well as IP66F, IP67F, Type 4X, 12, 13, Class I Division 2 hazardous location, and UL61010 approval ratings.

Communications capabilities have been bolstered by the addition of BACnet/IP. Support is included for over 100 other serial and networking industrial protocols such as Modbus RTU Master/Slave and Modbus TCP/IP. Up to four protocols can be used simultaneously, allowing the HG5G-V to exchange data with many sources and systems.

File Transfer Protocol (FTP) functionality allows users to configure the HMI as an FTP Client or Server for transferring programs—and for copying or moving files between local memory, an external memory device or a cloud-based file, database or data storage platform. This provides a convenient and effective remote file transfer method.

Web server functionality for HMI remote monitoring and control is accessed using any device capable of hosting a web browser including a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Accessing the HMI using this method gives a user the same functionality as if standing in front of the HMI on the factory floor. Troubleshooting and maintenance of a system is possible any time and from anywhere, saving travel time and expense. 

The HMI also supports industrial internet of things (IIoT) operation by serving up web pages developed using a browser-based web page editor, and it can also generate emails. In addition to browser-based access, users can employ the WindEDIT Lite app on any iOS or Android device over Wi-Fi for two-way communications with the HMI.
