MOTION CONTROL:AutomationDirect’s line of C-more operator interfaces now includes two new 6-inch TFT color panels with LED backlights. The base model EA7-T6CL-R panel is a 320×240 resolution QVGA display which supports up to 65,536 colors. The analog resistive touch screen supports unlimited touch areas, two USB ports, serial PLC interface (RS-232/422/485), and 10 MB project memory. The panel is equipped with an LED backlight with a 50,000 hour half-life. Additional capabilities on the full-feature EA7-T6CL unit include an Ethernet 10/100 base-T communication port, remote Internet access and data logging. Both panels are NEMA 4/4X, IP65 compliant when mounted correctly for indoor use. Backed by a two-year warranty, the panels start at $495.
Both traditional automation companies and startups are developing technologies to improve processes on the factory floor, while smart sensors and other IoT-related technologies are improving how products are handled during transport and across the supply chain.
