Announcing the cMT-HDMI

Hot on the heels of the cMT3072 is the cMT-HDMI, the proven, popular cMT architecture with an HDMI output. The cMT-HDMI is an HMI without a screen – the screen can be an HDMI screen such as a TV or industrial monitor. As well as the rich cMT features, the cMT-HDMI also offers several improvements over the mTV-100 with support for different resolution screens and native support for several industry standard touchscreens (list of currently tested models below – connection to the touchscreen is via USB): • HOPE HIS-ML (19.5) • IMD-C160PT (15.6) • iEi DM-F22A/PC-R11 (21.5) Support for the cMT-HDMI will be Continue reading Announcing the cMT-HDMI

7″ cMT Series HMI – cMT3072 – Launching 1st December 2017

The latest addition to the Weintek HMI range is the 7″ cMT3072. Built on the proven Weintek cMT architecture, the cMT3072 brings the rich features of the CloudHMI cMT architecture to the 7″ HMI market. The panel cut-out is the same as the existing Weintek 7″ HMI but the resolution is improved from 800 x 480 to 1024 x 600 on the cMT3072. The screen itself is IPS rather than the existing TFT offering superior clarity and wider viewing angles. With the built-in EasyAccess 2.0 licence, remote access to the HMI and PassThrough to PLCs and controllers is a breeze and dual ethernet Continue reading 7″ cMT Series HMI – cMT3072 – Launching 1st December 2017

New Product Announcement : cMT3090 9.7″ CloudHMI

We’re pleased to announce the launch of a new member of the cMT Series of HMI, the cMT3090, a welcome addition to the cMT range alongside the cMT3151 15″ HMI offering a good alternative to applications that previously would have require a cMT-SVR-100 & a cMT-iV5 panel. Physically similar in size and appearance to the existing MT8090XE, the cMT3090 boasts a built-in CloudHMI server enabling access from iOS or Android device, or PC running the  cMTViewer application. With an EasyAccess 2.0 licence built` in, remote access is a breeze. The cMT3090 is programmed using EasyBuilder Pro, a free download from our Continue reading New Product Announcement : cMT3090 9.7″ CloudHMI

New Product Announcement : cMT-G01

In IIoT applications, data integration plays a very important role, to achieve data integration, it’s essential that communication between onsite machines and upper layer data management systems (SCADA, ERP…etc.) is seamless, however, in factories where very often each controller uses a different communication protocol, data integration is challenging. With more than 20 years of experience of HMI development, the Weintek R&D Team have released the IIoT Smart Communication Gateway: cMT-G01 as a solution for data transfer and integration in the IIoT. With in-built de-facto standard IIoT protocols, MQTT and OPC UA and the ability to process data just as a Continue reading New Product Announcement : cMT-G01

HMI with WiFi Capability – MT-8103iE

Weintek have brought a great new innovation – the MT-8103iE, an HMI with built-in WiFi! As the 4th industrial revolution takes shape, a growing number of users require their HMIs to connect with ERP or other monitoring systems. Although Ethernet is the most widely used communication protocol between HMI and monitoring systems, not every factory has Ethernet wiring – in this case, Wi-Fi connectivity provides a great solution. Features 10.1″ 1024 x 600 TFT LCD with LED Backlight COM2 and COM3 RS-485 support MPI 187.5K (please use one at a time!) PCB coating process ensures high reliability to resist from Continue reading HMI with WiFi Capability – MT-8103iE

cMT Series HMI helps build your IIoT environment through OPC UA

In the era of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), not only should the connectivity of equipment on the plant floor improve, upper layer management systems, such as SCADA, MES, ERP…etc, should be able to have immediate access to data produced by factory machines. Weintek provides the best solution for communication between onsite machines and upper layer management systems. This is achieved with the cMT Series Smart HMIs (cMT-SVR & cMT3151), using the most common M2M protocols: MQTT and OPC UA. In this architecture, the cMT Series HMI are not just for operating machines, collecting and managing data, but also become Continue reading cMT Series HMI helps build your IIoT environment through OPC UA
