PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


Programmable HMIs with PLC

May 2019 PLCs, DCSs & Controllers

The new generation of the TX700 HMI/PLC series can control and visualise even more complex processes and applications than before. Thanks to several interfaces and an integrated OPC UA server, this device generation is well set for the future of automation. Particularly, it enables customers looking for a versatile controller suitable for use in different applications to keep their stock at manageable levels. Users requiring simple display devices without a control function will also find a solution in the series.

TX207

A combination of the high-quality plastic housing of the TX100 series and the new powerful hardware platform of the premium HMI/PLC devices of the TX700 series, the resistive touch screen of the device is 7’’ diagonal. The TX207 has two RS-232 and two RS-485, as well as two CAN interfaces. In addition, two USB ports are available. Programming is done with Codesys3.5 SP12. Two options are available for creating the visualisation. On the one hand the Codesys TargetVisu can be used, and on the other, the visualisation editor TX VisuPro. It has sufficient memory and computing power and the operating system is real-time Linux, instead of Windows Embedded.

TX100

This product line includes three new devices with 4”, 7” and 10” screen diagonals and a resistive touch. The display has an Ethernet interface, a serial interface (RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485) and a USB port. The TX100 devices are pure HMIs without control function. The graphical user interface is therefore not created with Codesys, but exclusively with the visualisation editor. TX VisuPro is a modern software package for the development of user-friendly graphical user interfaces. It supports various drivers, which also allow communication with controllers such as Siemens, Beckhoff, Rockwell, Schneider and many other systems.
