TechTip: How to program Weintek HMI via Ethernet

This guide will show you how to connect a Weintek HMI to a PC via ethernet; to do this, we’ll be making sure that both screen and PC/laptop network adaptor are on the same subnet as each other.  Note: The illustrations in this Guide are based on an iE Series HMI. Other Series HMIs may appear a little different. For HMIs with dual ethernet, the IP addresses of the ports MUST be on different subnets.  Weintek System Settings1. On the Weintek HMI, tap the black arrow bottom right  2. To check if there is an IP address already set on the HMI, tap the Information button to show the settings for the device. In this case, we Continue reading TechTip: How to program Weintek HMI via Ethernet

New Feature Announcement: Touch Gesture on Weintek cMT X Series HMI

Use your HMI like a SmartphoneTouch gesture, supported on selected new cMT X Series HMI, provides easier and even more intuitive operation, allowing operators to use a variety of gestures such as swiping or pinching to make the HMI execute specified functions, without the need for on-screen buttons. Easier and Simpler UI StyleDeveloping HMI UI layout can take some time, designing the layout and the look of UI buttons, as shown on the left image below. In comparison, the image on the right illustrates that by replacing UI buttons with touch gestures, not only is the time for button design Continue reading New Feature Announcement: Touch Gesture on Weintek cMT X Series HMI

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
