Key capabilities of the TD240 HMI indicator and controller made by Pixsys of Italy include ability to visualise process data and images, alarm indication, performing data logging, displaying Help messages and flashing instructional texts. All process variables set points are accessible and adjustable through the touch screen.
Feature highlights of the TD240 HMI indicator and controller include an onboard programmable mini PLC configurable in the same Ladder language as other DINRAIL mounted PLCs; graphics programmable in TDdesigner using drag and drop; memory cards facility enabling users to download firmware upgrades; and pre-programmed changes to the device, speeding up the device’s commissioning in new installations, upgrades or changes to existing installations.
The panel device is integrated into a complete hardware interface with four universal analogue inputs, 16 programmable digital I/Os and four analogue outputs all in a single device. PLC characteristics can be programmed with Pixsys PLprog, and by using TDdesigner, allowing the graphics to also be programmable.
