THE Allen-Bradley InView line is a family of large-format LED message displays designed for industrial applications. Flexible, scalable, and cost-effective, InView displays are visible at distances of up to 100 metres.
InView is available from Rockwell Automation Australia in three formats accommodating one to four lines of text -- each up to 40 characters long -- with characters ranging in height from 38 to 183mm.
The InView family features a common software and hardware platform and long-lasting LED technology. Varying font sizes, character style, and tricolour or red LED options provide the InView with a dynamic presence on the factory floor. The displays also offer scrolling and flashing effects, plus display colour changes.
The displays can be easily integrated into a plant's existing or new control network. They can communicate directly with any application that supports ActiveX controls, such as Rockwell Software RSView32.
Point-to-point controller applications can be easily configured via a standard RS232 communications port, while networked configurations are possible using RS485 multi-drop, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP or Ethernet TCP/IP.
