Human Machine Interface (HMI) Line for PLC Control

June 15, 2010
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the WOP-2000 series for applications involving the use of PLCs, motion/thermal controllers, inverters and sensors.

Bundled with PM Designer 2.0, (a software development kit that creates application solutions for labor-saving, improved efficiency of manufacturing, and easy control of every machine in the factory), the WOP-2000 series offers an outstanding price performance ratio for various markets such as conventional operator panels, HMI + low mini SCADA systems, and HMI + communication gateways.

PM Designer is proven to be an easy to use integrated development tool featuring solution-oriented screen objects, high-end vector graphics, Microsoft® Windows™ fonts for multi-language applications, recipes, alarms, data loggers and operation logging. PM Designer also includes online/offline simulation and other utility programs such as Data Transfer Helper (DTH); recipes editors and text editors. The WOP-2000 runtime, a part of PM Designer, guarantees reliability and performance because of the minimum system overhead, high communication data rates, sub-second screen switching, and 24/7 operation.

The WOP-2000 series consist of up to 200 MHz ARM9-based processors and 4 ~ 16 MB flash memory. They support a variety of LCD sizes from 3.5" to 12.1" and are highly suited for applications involving the use of PLCs, motion/thermal controllers, inverters, and sensors.

With various communication interfaces, including RS-232/422/485 Ethernet and USB ports, the WOP-2000 series can easily connect to a variety of equipment. The monitors boast SVGA TFT LCDs with 64K colors and 800 x 600 resolution for clear displays in any factory setting. Furthermore, these products include NEMA 4/IP65 protection and 0 ~ 50° C operating temperatures to ensure performance in the most demanding environments.

They are compatible with over 250 of the most popular PLCs on the market, including: Allen Bradley® Micrologix series, Modicon® Quantum™ series, GE® series 90™, Siemens® AG Simatic S7 series, Mitsubishi® Electric Corp. FX/Q series, Omron® Corporation Sysmac C/CV/CS/CJ series, and Yaskawa® Corp. MP series.

This unique line of HMI devices, bundled with PM Designer 2.0 software, provide a complete solution for any factory automation need, including packaging, label cutting, and motion-based robot dispensing tasks.
