Device and kit developers are already the usage of tight integration between the HMI and controller to assist building up productiveness in huge packages. With the brand new Allen-Bradley PanelView 5310 family of graphic terminals, they are able to now convey those integration advantages to smaller packages.
The PanelView 5310 graphic terminals ship the similar usability advantages and enhanced integration with Logix 5000 controllers because the PanelView 5500 terminals. However the brand new terminals are particularly designed for packages of as much as 50 HMI monitors. The terminals are to be had in 7-inch, Nine-inch and 12-inch show sizes. A 6-inch show possibility shall be to be had in 2018.
“Engineers can use the PanelView 5310 circle of relatives to scale a tightly built-in automation device all the way down to smaller packages,” mentioned Mike Moriarty, product supervisor, Rockwell Automation. “It will assist in making design, operations and upkeep duties extra environment friendly. As an example, engineers can now reuse controller alarms with out growing HMI tags, which is able to assist them cut back configuration time.”
Firms too can use the improved integration to create high-speed jog buttons rather than bulky hardwired buttons. Those auto-diagnosing buttons can have interaction with the controller at I/O speeds to assist cut back downtime and support productiveness.
Different productiveness advantages of the PanelView 5310 graphic terminals come with the next:
The intuitive Rockwell Tool Studio 5000 design atmosphere permits customers to create reusable faceplates, monitors and customized graphics to assist cut back building time. Those gadgets seamlessly combine with Logix add-on directions and other user-defined records varieties.
Emulation features permit engineers to check run initiatives within the building atmosphere. It will assist them make adjustments with out the usage of the PanelView 5000 or disrupting manufacturing.
VNC connectivity permits operators to remotely track operations by means of a smartphone, pill or private laptop. Ancient-trending and data-logging options additionally permit operators to simply troubleshoot problems immediately at the panel.
Engineers can load initiatives onto the PanelView 5310 graphic terminals immediately from detachable media to extra briefly recuperate data and make mission updates without having to make use of the Studio 5000 View Clothier software.
