Phoenix Contact is expanding its HMI product line to include a new performance class: the TP 5000 series. In addition to the high-performance Intel Atom 1.6 GHz CPU, these devices set themselves apart through their range of functions.
The Visu+ runtime software is available on three different displays for visualisation. These display diagonals extend from 30.73cm (12.1inch) through 38.1cm (15inch) up to 43.2cm (17inch). The integrated OPC server or additional Ethernet-based drivers are used to link to the control level. Furthermore, these devices can be connected to Profinet; this offers advantages such as IP allocation via the engineering station or PLC for commissioning, connection monitoring for operating tasks, as well as location identification functionality for service and support. In addition to the standard interfaces, such as Ethernet (2x), USB (4x), and RS 232, the device also has a VGA interface. Multi-station operation can be set up by connecting an external monitor.
These HMIs are suitable for large machines and plants where HMI SCADA functionality is required. In addition, they can be used in almost any sector thanks to the high-quality aluminium housing, which is protected against the the ingress of dust and moisture to IP65.
