Feature rich HMI series

16 October 2012

Omron has introduced a new HMI series which is said to offer increased functionality and usability for small and medium sized machines.

A wide range of models - in sizes from 3.5in to 10in wide screen – are designed to a wide variety of application requirements, providing TFT colour touch screens with long-life LED backlighting, a wide viewing angle, and the ability to display over 65,000 colours.

The NB series HMIs incorporate Ethernet, serial and USB interfaces for connection to the company’s PLCs and devices as well as automation components from other vendors. The HMI also supports the use of a USB memory stick to upload new versions of your program or for backing up stored data.

Designed with simplicity in mind, the NB series provides all the features and functions needed to create intuitive operator screens quickly, with programming software that can be downloaded freely from the company’s website. The software provides flexible window handling, support for 32 languages, the ability to quickly create animations – linked, for example, to specific statuses or machine functions – and powerful macros. To save design time projects can be tested in offline simulation mode.

The HMIs also provide a number of options for graphical data presentation of real-time and historical data, providing a readily understandable view of the information. This data can either be stored in PLC memory or downloaded via the USB port to a portable memory device.
