The scalable measuring, control, and automation system JUMO mTRON T can be extended by additional operating panels on the basis of CODESYS V3.5 SP3. The new panels have a touchscreen with a diagonal screen measurement between 3.5 to 15 inches and are provided in a neutral design. They have CODESYS PLC as well as target and web visualization.
As a basic model, JUMO mTRON T offers a multifunction panel 840 with an 8.4" TFT touchscreen. Among other things, the multifunction panel features user administration with access to parameter and configuration data for the whole system, predefined screen masks for service / controller / program generator / recording functions (including batch reporting), and customer-specific process screens.
Up to four of the new operating panels can be connected to a JUMO mTRON T central processing unit using CODESYS project design. The advantage of this solution lies in the fact that it allows direct access to the PLC variables of the JUMO mTRON T via CODESYS data server. As a result, no costs for external PC programming software apply. The visualization is carried out via customer-specific process screens.
The JUMO mTRON T operating panels and their numerous application possibilities will be presented for the first time at this year’s SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany. In addition, the various networking and communication options using other systems or devices (for example via Modbus RTU, Modbus/TCP, PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET IO, as well as via OPC and web server) will also be demonstrated.
