WAGO’s PERSPECTO CP TV merges an HMI and a PLC into one package. The hardware features five sizes of TFT touch screens (3.5”, 5.7”, 10.4”, 12.1” and 15”), and an expansive selection of ports: Ethernet (Modbus/TCP), CANopen, USB, RS-232 and RS-485. In addition to connectivity requirements, performance is also optimized with scaled processing power up to 1.6 GHz processor, 256 MB of RAM and 128 MB of Flash memory. Removable memory expansion (up to 2 GB) is supported via microSD, SD or Compact Flash card for applications such as program backup/restore, recipe exchange, trending and more. The IEC 61131 compatible WAGO-I/O-PRO software is the all-in-one development tool for PERSPECTO CP TV’s logic programming and graphic screen editing. Offered as a site license, the tool includes six programming languages (IL, LD, FBD, ST, FC and CFC), custom graphic development, as well as access to pre-built graphic libraries and function blocks.
