Original Press Release:

Communicate with up to 16 PLCs Using One Touchscreen - New Ethernet/IP Driver in WindO/I-NV2 3.01 Makes it Happen!

Think Automation and beyond ...

Sunnyvale- IDEC touchscreens are now able to remotely communicate simultaneously with up to 16 devices in an Ethernet network! IDEC Corporation, a leader in HMI technology, is making this possible by releasing three new drivers and additional enhancements in its updated WindO/I-NV2 3.01 programming software.

IDEC touchscreens support many major brands of PLCs and over 100 controllers. With the newly added Ethernet/IP driver, IDEC 10.4" and 12.1" TFT color LCD touchscreens can control and monitor up to 16 PLCs including Micrologix(TM), PLC5(TM), SLC500(TM) and ControlLogix(TM). And because this driver is so easy to use and implement, IDEC touchscreens provide a cost-effective solution for automation design engineers. In addition, two new Ethernet networking protocols are also available: Modbus TCP/IP 1:N driver and IDEC 1:N driver.

The updated IDEC WindO/I-NV2 3.01 also provides enhanced programming features. These include a security function and alarm logging, both of which give added programming flexibility. For instance, the security function can now allow several levels to require passwords to increase security when multiple users are editing projects, or displaying screens and objects. Alarm logging, which stores historical events, now has an improved configuration compliant to ISA (Instrument Society of America) Standards giving users additional options to display and manage alarm messages.
