Idec Corporation releases the 5.7” Enhanced HMI, HG2G-5T series, a significant upgrade from the Basic 5.7 inch model. The Enhanced HG2G-5T Series color version TFT LCD HMI has a resolution of 65,536 colors 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. The resolution produces an 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 Enhanced HMI HG2G-5T series delivers 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.

The Enhanced 5.7” HMI has a wide range of operating temperatures from -20 to 60 degrees C, and it 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.  The Enhanced HG2G-5T HMI LED backlight has a life of 100,000 hours and can be automatically switched off when the HMI is not in use.

Remote users can monitor current values or processes—and also control operation, print information, switch screens or change program values. Users can also remotely perform troubleshooting, run tests and perform maintenance.
