The D-MAX system offers different Operator Interfaces to better fit the requirements of each application.
Ideal for the most complex, networked applications, the D-MAX Network Operator Interface (OI-N) displays text, guiding nomenclature, and web guide graphics on a large Graphic LCD and offers the possibility to control up to 10 independent control loops out of a single operator interface.
A lighter version, the basic Operator Interface (OI-B) is suitable for simpler applications and communicates directly to a D-MAX controller single or dual-drive configuration with the advantage of not requiring a separate 24V power supply line being powered over the Ethernet connection (POE).
NETWORK OPERATOR INTERFACE (OI-N)
• Ability to interface with multiple guide controllers
• Configured with a 5-port Ethernet switch for guide networking and/or communication uplink to additional OI-N’ s
• Industry standard network card for communication with machine PLCs and PCs with field protocols such as Ethernet Modbus TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, ProfiBus and many others, for easy integration with the machine PLC or PC.
• CompactCom port for communication with Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)
