GRAPHICAL INTERFACES ARE MADE FOR SMALL- TO MEDIUM-SIZE MACHINES

Available now from Turck, the TX500 series of HMIs combine high-end touch displays and fast processors, making them ideal for use in small- to medium-size machines where processes have to be controlled, displayed and operated locally. Each TX500 is equipped with a Profinet master and EtherNet/IP scanner, as well as Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU masters. The HMIs can also be run as field devices for both the Modbus protocols.
The provision of Codesys 3 allows lean and simple programming of the PLC and its visualisation functions. The latest processor technology guarantees the smooth handling of computing intensive processes such as moving image visualisations. The high-resolution TFT display with 64,000 colours enables attractive and high-performance display of graphics and animations. The front panel of the TX500 series is protected to IP66.
Two RJ45 Ethernet ports, a serial interface for RS232 or RS485 and two USB ports are provided on the terminal side. An additional SD card slot enables expansion of the 128Mbyte internal data memory. Turck is offering the TX500 series in three variants with different display sizes and resolutions: two 16:9 displays with 7 or 13in (TX507 and TX513) diagonals and one 10in device in 4:3 format (TX510). The two smaller displays offer 800 x 400 pixels, whereas the large TX513 comes with 1280 x 800 pixels.
