New display sizes for Visu+ HMIs from Phoenix Contact
Phoenix Contact is expanding its existing range of HMI devices for the Visu+ visualisation software with four additional display variants. The new 4.3in, 9.0in, 12.0in, and 15.4in display sizes give system planners even more choice. The HMIs are fitted with the latest ARM Cortex-A8 processors. The improved processor power gives the user up to ten percent faster image refresh and reaction times. This means the visualisations created with the Visu+ software will run even more smoothly. Detailed and complex operating and monitoring interfaces can be created and access to machines and systems intuitively designed. The 1GB flash memory and 512Mbyte RAM provide adequate resources for complex visualisation concepts.
The HMI devices are fitted with a range of drivers and so can be connected to third-party systems, also Phoenix Contact offers the Visu+ mobile app which enables constant access to the HMI and then to the system via a mobile device. An integrated buzzer with a volume of up to 85dB eliminates the need for an external signalling device.
For those just getting started with Visu+, Phoenix Contact has published an introduction document that gives an insight into the software and shows how the HMI, controller and development environment interact with one another. Users are guided every step of the way until completion of the visualisation project. This involves creating a new project in Visu+, designing a user interface via the import of variables from the controller via OPC, and linking with Visu+ application objects. The guide finally shows the user how to transfer the finished project to the HMI and how to operate the Visu+ application from there.
