Dec. 15, 2015 – Omron Automation and Safety says its NA series HMIs “makes it faster and easier to implement dynamic, intuitive user interfaces with wide screen, high-resolution graphics” for solutions to demanding applications.
According to Omron, the screen allows more control objects on each screen to reduce paging so operators can visualize the whole machine or process at a glance, boosting productivity and minimizing downtime. The NA family of HMIs integrates with Omron’s Sysmac Automation Platform, which includes logic, motion, safety, vision and robotics. Complete system design, simulation and commissioning are programmed with Omron’s Sysmac Studio integrated development tool. The series features three function keys for added flexibility to the operational design; 24-bit full-colour screens; and two Ethernet ports, two USB ports and one serial connection. It comes in 7-in., 9-in., 12-in. and 15-in. screen sizes.
