Remote monitoring and control over Ethernet

Distance isn't an issue with the updated 8.4- and 10.4-inch HG3G touchscreen from IDEC. When you need access to your machine or equipment, but can't get to the factory floor or even to the office, all you need is a computer,  a Smartphone or a PDA and you can remotely access, monitor and control your HG3G through a web browser. It really is that simple.

"You can monitor current values or processes, click pushbuttons to control operation, print, switch screens or even change program values just as if you were in front of your touchscreen on site," says Stephen Schiller, Managing Director at IDEC Europe. "You can also troubleshoot, test and do maintenance. As long as the touchscreen's firmware has A.O. software version 1.52 and your HG3G is accessible on the internet, all our latest remote features and enhancements are available at your fingertips."

CE-marked, c-UL-us listed and offering IP66 protection, the HG3G touchscreen can be mounted in either portrait or landscape mode depending on your space requirements and supports PictBridge Protocol for USB printers, which allows you to print screen images or the alarm log history. And depending on your application, the expansion MicroSmart I/O module (mounted on the back of the HG3G), which provides simple I/O control, now has the option to perform independently of the touchscreen scan time by using Cyclic Script. 

As always from IDEC, these operator interface touchscreens offer a vivid screen and fast CPU processor of 400MHz for quick operation and response times. These are high-definition quality LCD TFT screens, with SVGA 800x600 pixel resolution, that can provide sharp images and superior visibility plus 65,536 colours to make screen views realistic and crisp. At up to 700cd/m2, IDEC says they are also the brightest displays in the market.

Embedded Ethernet has become of feature of IDEC's most recent product launches, including the new MicroSmart Pentra PLC which offers a built in web server and 1MB of user space, plus email functionality to keep you advised real-time dynamic data wherever in the world you may be.
