Q : PLEASE BRIEF US ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING OR LATEST PRODUCT RANGE OF HMI.
As companies move to a server-centric model to maintain flexibility in hardware and software choices, a field mount panel & web panels industrial need has increased.
Also for operating freedom, WLAN data exchange and integrated Safety functions there is huge demand for Safety wireless HMI. To address these needs, Exor came out with JSMART series and X5 Wireless HMI’s
The JSmart series with a great front design is available in screen sizes 5” , 7” , 10” , 15” and 21.5” with multi-touch glass capacitive screen. The JSmart Series has & 1” connector on the back for a 22mm adapter with POE communication. So, the mounting cannot be easier. First, log a mechanical hole 22.5mm. Second, mount the panel with gasket and nut. Third, plug the POE cable into the socket and the panel is ready for use.
JSmart has facilities such as wireless communication where it can be a wireless client or JSmart can be an Access point for other devices.
The dimension is only 16mm & 26mm in depth depending on screen size and has a throughput IP67 density rating.
The JSmart 700 Series is programmed by JMobile, with lots of features like alarm, trend log, reports, prescriptions, automated HTML5 web pages, client options from Windows PC or from other EXOR Panels, and more.
The X5 Wireless Mobile HMI is a compact and lightweight device with an ergonomic design. Wireless connection with certification for safety devices makes this product the ideal solution for industrial applications. Integrated devices (keyboard, potentiometers, handwheel) can be fully programmed assuring a quick use with your automation project. X5 is fully programmable with JMobile.
Working in combination with the Xbase (Base Station) as a peer-to-peer SIL3 rated Wi-Fi connection, the flexibility of the X5 can be realised.
Where there exists the need to easily connect and command movement by distance, where a full day’s battery life is useful. Where the fatigue of the operator is important to reduce so that human errors do not occur, the X5 system provides the most ground-breaking solution.
