The touchscreens support many major brands of PLCs and more than 100 controllers. With the newly added EtherNet/IP driver, the 10.4-inch and 12.1-inch TFT color LCD touchscreens can control and monitor up to 16 PLCs, including Micrologix, PLC5, SLC500 and ControlLogix. In addition, two new Ethernet networking protocols are available: Modbus TCP/IP 1:N driver and the vendor’s 1:N driver. The WindO/I-NV2 3.01 software also provides enhanced programming features, including a security function and alarm logging. For instance, the security function can now allow several levels to require passwords to increase security when the systemhas multiple users.
