With the recent introduction of the GS21 series HMIs, the iQ-F (FX5) is the perfect mate for this PLC/HMI pairing. The GS21 Simple Series has built-in Ethernet on both the 7” and 10” wide screen versions. The resolution is WVGA 800×480, 65k colors and 9MB of user memory. The screens can also be oriented in landscape or portrait modes. The GS21 has a SD card slot for data logging and recipe functions. The GS21 HMIs are programmed with the standard GT-Designer3 software, so commissioning is a simple process.
This combination of components gives OEM manufacturers a very cost effective solution from the world’s leading manufacturer of small PLCs. Applications that include 1-4 axis of motion, temperature control, VFD control and less than 512 I/O are well suited for this pair.
Simply put, this is the perfect marriage!
