SAY IT IN COLOUR WITH iKAN LED

10-06-2020

Give your PC or PLC a voice with the new ICP DAS’ iKAN series industrial Modbus LED display, available now from ICP Australia.

The iKAN series is a family of industrial Modbus LED display devices that deliver industrial-grade anti-noise capabilities, reliability, and stability. Data written from a PC or PLC can be displayed in a formatted message in real-time.

Text can be displayed in seven different colours to indicate varying degrees of importance and increase readability in an industrial arena.

Use a standard web browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox or IE on a PCB, mobile device or smartphone to edit messages without limitation. The display of messages can be remotely toggled as necessary using the same browser.

The iKAN series includes support for the popular Modbus industrial protocol, meaning they can be easily integrated into existing PLC and SCADA environments.

ASCII and Unicode characters are supported for presenting formatted messages in multiple languages. Up to 128 messages can be stored with priority configuration, while 168 user-defined variables allow data on a PC, PLC or other controller to be automatically integrated into a message and displayed.

Thanks to its open user interface and the ability to display real-time data, the iKAN series is easily installed and operated in a variety of indoor spaces including shopping centres, railway stations and industrial areas.
