Mitsubishi Electric Automation Introduces Graphic Operation Terminal with Touchscreen Capability
Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. Posted 07/24/2014
VERNON HILLS, Ill. – Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. introduces the GOT2000 Series, a human machine interface (HMI) that monitors and controls machine components with a graphical touchscreen. This unique technology allows operators to interact with the HMI similarly to a tablet or smartphone with intuitive gestures and multi-touch actions.
The GOT2000 acts as a seamless gateway to industrial automation devices, including programmable logic controllers (PLC), variable frequency drives, servos and temperature controllers. The display is designed to optimize operator control and monitoring of device and line status.
The GOT2000 Series can also integrate wireless LAN communications, allowing for flexible system designs. Other features include expansion slots for optional communication and dual processors. Particularly useful to OEMs is a flexible SD card drive that provides storage, as well as an interface to quickly load program, OS, and PLC backup files. Additionally, remote access to the HMI and connected equipment allows for easy maintenance and training.
End users can take advantage of the GOT2000’s functionality to provide user access and logging information, as well as storage of work instructions from standard Adobe®, Word® and PowerPoint® documents, and video recording and playback.
The GOT2000 Series graphic operation terminal provides options for virtually all types of industrial automation applications. Large screens up to 15” provide excellent performance for automotive and other large facilities, the white frame models provide an easy-to-clean flat surface for food and beverage applications, and smaller screen sizes down to 3.7” provide flexible options for any size machine.
Additional information about the GOT2000 Series is available at the product web page on the Mitsubishi Electric Automation web site. Information on Mitsubishi Electric Automation’s comprehensive line of factory automation products and solutions is also available.
