Visualising machine safety status with Omron's NB HMI
30 November 2014
Omron’s NB HMI series now support the Omron G9SP Programmable Safety Controller, providing machine builders with a feature rich and cost-effective system.
The NB HMI series can be directly connected to Omron’s G9SP Safety Controller via serial communications. Direct connection allows easy monitoring of operational status and details of errors monitored by the G9SP controller. Machine safety errors can be shown graphically; for example, a door that is not closed or a broken switch.
The G9SP can control both safety and standard I/O, which would otherwise require multiple controllers. Some safety controllers only control safety I/O and require a separate network unit to connect to an HMI, which adds extra cost and increases space requirements.
NB HMI series is available in sizes from 3.5in to 10in TFT colour touch screen with long-life LED backlighting and a wide viewing angle.
Omron G9SP support is provided by the free-of-charge NB-Designer software, version 1.32 or later.
