IDEC FT1A Touch 14 I/O HMI+PLC Unit

IDEC announces a new model in its FT1A Touch micro programmable controller series of combo HMI+PLC units, the FT1A Touch 14 I/O. New features make the FT1A Touch 14 I/O suitable for advanced analog monitoring and control, allowing users to economically perform both operator interface and control for a much wider range of applications.Many small scale applications such as simple machines could benefit by using a programmable graphical interface along with a discrete and analog controller and I/O, but don’t have the panel space or the budget for separate components. The FT1A Touch 14 I/O addresses this need by combining …

Pro-face GP4000M Rear Module

Pro-face America has launched the new GP4000M series rear module for their GP4x01M series of HMIs. The GP4000M Rear Module offers two unique data management architectures. Thanks to the large library of 3rd party protocols supported, the GP4000M Rear Module can be deployed as a “Factory Gateway”. As a Factory Gateway, the GP4000M can bridge devices from two different networks, each network operating on a different industrial communications protocol. For applications where operator interaction is not required or infrequent and data collection is necessary the GP4000M operating as a “blind node” makes for a cost effective solution. Coupled with our …

Schneider Electric Magelis STU HMI Panel

The Magelis STU HMI from Schneider Electric does more than give you a crystal clear display and control of all that is happening within your control panel — without even opening the door. It also offers a truly impressive, one-of-a-kind design that easily mounts, without tools, directly onto your control panel through a standard push-button opening. This effectively puts a 3.5” screen through a standard 22mm round hole answering the age-old questions of how to put a square peg, through a round hole.

Schneider Electric Magelis STO and STU HMIs

The new Magelis STO and Magelis STU HMIs are the first small panel HMIs on the market to address the needs of application builders who are price sensitive, but still desire some advanced functionality atypical for a small panel HMI such as data logging, USB port application download and remote Web access. “When machine builders are looking for basic HMIs, it’s easy for them to become fixated on the lowest price,” said Jacob Kimball, HMI product manager, Schneider Electric. “However, this can end up costing users in the long run if they don’t consider the total cost of working with …
