NSJ series HMI controllers from Omron (http://rbi.ims.ca/4929-503) integrate the company's NS HMI and CJ1 PLC into a single flexible, HMI controller. The units have separate but integrated processors for display and control tasks, so control response is never compromised by heavy graphics demands on the HMI. Display screens range in size from 5.7 to 12.1 inches, and in resolutions from 320 × 240 to 800 × 600. Ethernet, USB, serial programming ports and printer ports are built-in. Networking and I/O expansion options are available.
All NSJ HMI controllers feature a built-in DeviceNet master that reduces I/O wiring to a single cable. Omron's CX-One software tool provides program development for both the display and control functions using function blocks and the company's patented Smart Active Parts libraries.
