Developed by Beijer Electronics, this new I/O module enables easy interfacing with Beijer Electronics’ HMI and allows the user to implement simple monitoring and automation tasks without the need of a PLC. The HMI I/O Controller is an easy-to-install and cost effective solution.
The compact new HMI I/O Controller is specially developed for the plus version of the H-T40, the H-T40m-P, which features extended memory. The module facilitates the aim of the H-series to offer valuable HMI functionality at the precise level required by the customer.
Up to 16 modules per H-T40m-P can be stacked up and the module’s built-in processor means that the H-T40m-P operates at optimal speed with no adverse effects.
This compact I/O module can be easily mounted on the back of the H-T40m-P. The HMI I/O Controller features 12 Digital inputs / 4 Digital outputs. Other versions, including analog I/O modules, are in the pipeline. Up to 16 modules per H-T40m-P can be stacked up and the module’s built-in processor means that the H-T40m-P operates at optimal speed with no adverse effects.
Beijer Electronics’ products manager Troy Lin explains, “The HMI I/O Controller is the first I/O module to be developed by Beijer Electronics. It is a perfect solution, affording a direct interface with our H-T40m-P that is compact, cost-effective and easy to install”.
Monitoring and automation tasks can easily be developed with the H-T40m-P’s software, H-Designer. This intuitive HMI configuration software features flexible tools that allow projects to be created in just a few minutes and offers instant off-line and on-line simulation. H-Designer saves valuable time, providing ready-made modules that can be utilized for arithmetic calculations, logical operators and bit settings etc.
The HMI I/O Controller is perfect for utilization within a varied range of industries. Among other things, the module may be used for controlling on/off switches for light output in Building Automation or for pump control throughout the Water & Irrigation industry and agriculture facilities.
