The C-More Micro HMI panel is a series of human-machine interfaces (HMI) that provide a way for the operator to control and view your programmable logic controller. (PLC) The free C-more microprogramming software is user friendly and fully featured. C-more Micro panels can easily display text, graphics, and bitmaps to effectively communicate critical data to your operator.
We will connect the EA3-T4CL cmore micro HMI screen to the Omron CP1H PLC. The devices will communicate serially via an RS485 interface. We will demonstrate reading and writing bits and words from the HMI unit. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
The cmore EA9 HMI has an event manager that can be used to trigger actions based on various events.
We will be adding a Click PLC to our headless RHMI cmore EA9 program that we created last time to communicate to the solo process temperature controller. The Solo will be connected via RS485 using the Modbus RTU protocol. Using the Modbus TCP protocol we will connect the Click PLC to the Ethernet port. Using the event manager we will be writing the set value (SV) and present value (PV) of the solo process temperature controller to the Click PLC. We will also allow the Click PLC to write the SV into the solo. This is in addition to the writing of the set value via remote apps and the solo itself. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
The cmore EA9 HMI can connect to the Solo process temperature controller using the built-in RS485 serial communication port. This will connect up to 32 solo units back to the HMI for display and control.
We will be setting up our headless RHMI c-more EA9 to communicate to the Solo process temperature controller. Using the information that we have discussed previously, we will set up data logging, file transfer protocol (FTP), bitmaps, etc.
We will also set up an object library of the Solo 4896 process temperature controller. This will consist of a bitmap, numeric display, numeric edit, indication lights, and up and down increment. The system will then be controlled using the remote applications discussed last time. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
Remote access will allow for viewing or controlling the C-More EA9 HMI series. We can use any windows based machine or use the C-More remote HMI App from Apple iTunes store, Google Play or Amazon App Store for mobile devices. This software is available free of charge.
Setting up the EA9 series for remote access and control is done through the C-More programming software to the HMI. We will be downloading the Windows application from the c-more panel. This is done through the web browser of your computer. We will also look at the c-more remote HMI app from Google play. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
The C-more headless EA9-RHMI is programmed using the C-more Programming Software, EA9-PGMSW. The developed project is transferred from the PC to the HMI by either a USB or an Ethernet connection between the two. Previously we used the Ethernet connection to establish communication.
We will be using the USB connection to establish communication, save the program and review the setup screens of the Headless C-more.
Troubleshooting of the USB connection and windows driver will also be discussed. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!
