C-More Drop-Down Menu Create – All Models


The C-More can create a drop-down menu. This applies to all models of the HMI controller. A drop-down is a menu that offers a list of options. The currently selected item in the list is always displayed. When the visible item is selected (touched), other items from the list “drop-down” into view, and the operator can choose from those options.
C-More Drop-Down Menu Create
We will be creating a drop-down menu using a C-More Micro HMI. (Human Machine Interface) This could also be done using the EA7 or EA9 C-More HMI controllers. The EA3-T4CL will be communicating to a Click PLUS PLC. A ladder logic program in the PLC will control the operation of this operator interface drop-down menu. Selecting a question on the drop-down will give an answer on the corresponding Lookup Text display. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

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.
omron plc c-more micro hmi
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!

Omron CP1H PLC to CMore HMI EA9 RHMI


The C-More EA9 Series of human-machine interfaces (HMI) provides a way for the operator to control and will perform a lot of additional items. The free programming software is very user friendly and fully featured. Here are some of the additional items that this robust and powerful HMI can do besides communicating to programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Send Email – This includes authentication for the email client protocol
Log Data – This can log data files to the internal memory or an external thumb drive (32G)
FTP Server – Use file transfer protocol to retrieve information from the HMI to a network. This can be done automatically with a batch file.
Web Server – This HMI can be a web server on your network
Remote Internet Access – Windows, Android, and IOS operating systems have the ability to take advantage of this remote access to the HMI. The programs are free and fully functional.
omron plc to cmore hmi
Our sample CP1H PLC program will use buttons and indicators to control a start/stop jog circuit. An analog input into the PLC will be scaled and displayed on a gauge and numeric display on our HMI screen. We will also write information to our 7 segment display on the CPU from our HMI screen. Omron serial host link protocol will be used to communicate over an RS485 serial cable. We will demonstrate remote access using our windows and android device. Let’s get started. Continue Reading!

C-More EA9 HMI to Solo and Click PLC Controllers




The cmore EA9 HMI has an event manager that can be used to trigger actions based on various events.
C-More EA9 HMI Solo and Click PLC controllers
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!

C-More to Solo Process Temperature Controller




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.
C-More EA9 HMI Series Headless RHMI to Solo Process Temperature Controller
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.
C-More EA9 HMI Series Headless RHMI to Solo Process Temperature Controller
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!
