Uticor have released their new line of industrial Smart Marquee series with more features. Smart Marquee series are available from Balmoral Technologies .
Message database: With Tough SmartMarquee, messages displayed can be stationary, scrolling or blinking based on the embedded codes in an ASCII string. These messages, along with their display characteristics, are stored inside Tough SmartMarquee. The number of messages stored is unlimited. Messages can be imported from and exported to an Excel spread sheet.
Connects to most major PLCs and networks: Uticor Tough Master Marquees connect to Allen Bradley, Modicon, Siemens, Mitsubishi, DH+ and Profibus. Essentially all drivers serial as well as network that are available on Toughpanels are also incorporated into Master Tough SmartMarquees.
Alarms and alarm database: Tough SmartMarquees offer a sophisticated alarm system. It allows users to monitor events (bits), and values (registers). The values can be monitored for a variety of conditions (=, >, <, in/out of range). Alarms can be selectively displayed, printed and/or logged. Alarms are also stored in a separate alarm database, which can also be imported from or exported to Excel spread sheet.
Math-logic/multi-function: Buttons, Overlapping Objects Master Tough SmartMarquees offer a sophisticated control, called the Multi-function Object. This Object allows users to perform multiple functions, including mathematical and logical operations on PLC data. For example, users can set/reset multiple bits and transfer constants or variables or expressions to tags.
This benefit allows a user to perform up to 20 operations with one object. Master Tough SmartMarquee also allows users to perform these multiple functions under the PLC control, a useful feature to offload mathematical and logical computations from the ladder logic to the Marquee.
