New from Omron is an HMI series that offers increased functionality and usability for small and medium sized machines.
The wide range of models in sizes from 3.5 to 10in wide screen suit many different 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 Omron PLCs and devices, particularly the Omron CP1 compact PLC, as well as automation components from other vendors. The NB 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 HMIs provide all the features and functions needed to create intuitive operator screens quickly, with programming software that can be downloaded freely from the Omron website. The software provides flexible window handling, support for 32 languages, the ability to quickly create animations and a host of powerful macros.
