HMI CAPABILITY EXTENDED BEYOND JUST VISUALISATION
23 October 2012
With its GOT1000 series of HMIs, Mitsubishi Electric is reported to have a comprehensive range of HMIs with enhanced functionality that offer capabilities beyond just visualisation,...
providing additional features that will help to reduce downtime, enable fast recovery from simple errors, increase availability and boost production efficiency. Instead of simply displaying data, these enhanced HMIs are said to deliver genuine perspective on the automation process and provide a platform to solve the typical production problems that improve OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).
The GOT1000 series is a comprehensive range of both panel mounted and portable HMIs, in screen sizes from 3.7” to 15”. The high resolution screens provide up to 65,536 colours and can display complex graphics, photographs and even documents like Pdf, Powerpoint, Excel and Word. 64-bit RISC processors combined with high speed graphics processors enhance performance across the range, while features such as long-life LED backlighting, analogue touch functions, front-face USB port, an SD card slot and IP67 front panel sealing are standard on many units.
Designed to address the requirements of programmers, maintenance staff and machine operators, the HMIs simplify system design, enable fast and effective response to production problems, and provide a more effective machine operation platform.
Key features include the ability to back up the PLC program within the GOT terminal. This means if a PLC CPU should fail or the program needs restoring, it can be restored directly from the HMI, saving time and effort and ensuring production is restarted as quickly as possible.
