Omron CP1H to C-More Micro HMI Communication


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!

C-More Micro HMI Object Recipe Component

The C-More Micro HMI Panel software uses virtual components called Objects. Recipe buttons are part of these objects. The Recipe Button Object changes the value of a tag or multiple tags. The Recipe Button Object looks and acts like a Pushbutton Object on the screen. When the Recipe Button Object is pressed, the values in the Source Data Tags are written to Destination Data Tags.

We will now look at recipes that we can use with our HMI micro panel. They include the recipe button. We will program 3 recipes into the unit that will control 4 different timers. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

C-More Micro HMI Object Bitmap Image

We will now look at bitmap images that we can display on our C-More Micro unit. The C-More Micro HMI Panel software uses virtual components called Objects. Bitmaps are part of these objects. These bitmaps are images that are made up of tiny dots called pixels. Each of these dots are actually a small square that contains one colour. Bitmaps will help you produce simple, intuitive looking human machine interfaces.

We will now look at bitmaps that we can use with our HMI micro panel. They include bitmap buttons, static bitmap, dynamic bitmaps and multi-state bitmaps. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

C-More Micro HMI Object Meters and Graphs

The C-More Micro HMI Panel software uses virtual components called Objects. Meters and Graphs are part of these objects. They can represent a range of numbers and are programmable to simulate the functions that you require on your automation project. This helps you produce simple, intuitive looking human machine interfaces.
C-More Micro HMI Object Meters and Graphs
We will now look at the meters and graphs that we can use with our HMI micro panel. They can replace the older chart recorder equipment that is still in use in some manufacturing facilities. These objects will represent the data in the PLC for the user to interpret. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

C-More Micro HMI Object Numeric Entry

We will now look at the C-More Micro Numeric Entry objects. The C-More Micro HMI Panel software uses virtual components called Objects. These objects are programmable to simulate the functions that you require on your automation project. Several of these objects can be placed on a one-panel screen and you can have multiple panel screens. This helps you produce simple, intuitive looking human-machine interfaces.
