Dec. 15, 2015 – Idec has announced the 5.7-in. Enhanced HMI HG2G-5T series, calling it a “significant upgrade” from the previous Basic 5.7-in. model.
The Enhanced HG2G-5T series colour version TFT LCD HMI has a resolution of 65,536 colours and a brightness of 500 cd/m2. The monochrome TFT LCD model has a resolution of 16 shades and a brightness of 1100 cd/m2. According to Idec, this level of resolution produces a “much improved viewing experience,” and the increased brightness allows screens to be easily seen even in direct sunlight. Viewing can be configured for either portrait or landscape. The series supports up to three different communication protocols simultaneously. The serial port can support both RS-232 and RS-422/485 simultaneously, and the Ethernet port can support up to four Hosts and three User communication protocols at the same time. The serial port and the Ethernet port combined can thus support up to nine communication protocols simultaneously, two serial and seven Ethernet. It features an operating temperature range of -20 C to 60 C, and is rated IP66/IP66F and NEMA 4X to allow for installation outdoors, or indoors in washdown areas. The unit is suitable for installation in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous location.
