HM500 series HMI panels - now with transparent mode

29 June 2016

Panasonic's compact range of PLCs and their HM500 series HMI touch panels form a winning team.

Their hardware is both robust and reliable, ensuring durability and reliability. For this reason Panasonic offer a five year (or 30,000 hours) guarantee on the range.

The latest version of the HMWin programming software now supports a transparent communication mode with the Panasonic range of PLC products.

The transparent mode (or through function) allows a Panasonic PLC to be programmed and monitored with its FP-WIN Pro programming software whilst the HM 500 series HMI is connected between it and a PC. No special settings are required and the mode is automatically enabled.

Thanks to the Ethernet interfaces of the HM500 series and the new transparent mode, remote control, monitoring, maintenance, and programming are now possible via the HMI for our compact PLCs. All the data from machines and equipment connected to the PLC can be accessed with a PC and a standard browser, thus ensuring effective data logging. No matter where you are in this world, if you have an internet connection, you can monitor every production step of the machine.
