Product Introduction HMIs now often have a wide variety of capabilities, such as data display, machine control, data storage, PLC communication, protocol translation, graphic display, alarm notification, media playback, and IIoT integration. For an advanced HMI, these capabilities are now perceived as basic requirements, however, they can place a heavy burden on the HMIs CPU. Operators are used to operating high-speed consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets and expect a similar user experience and operation speed when working with HMI. For these reasons, Weintek has released the cMT X Series HMI: cMT3092X / cMT3152X / cMT3162X. The cMT X Continue reading New Product Announcement: Weintek cMT X Series
We’re exhibiting at Robotics and Automation 2019 being held at the Ricoh Arena 29th & 30th October 2019. Come and see us on stand 622. Be sure to register at https://www.roboticsandautomation.co.uk/ . Look forward to seeing you there.
Product Introduction As the Industrial 4.0 revolution gathers pace, users are eagerly searching for ways to retrofit legacy factory installations with smart capabilities. To help with this, Weintek have integrated their CODESYS and IIoT Gateway into a single product, the cMT-CTRL01 – IIoT Programmable Logic Controller. This new model with built-in CODESYS, in addition to working with all iR modules also features IIoT Gateway protocol translation and the EasyAccess remote access service, making it a great fit for new smart automation systems or as an upgrade path for existing systems. Features: CODESYS-Based High-Performance PLC SystemIn compliance with IEC 61131-3 Programmable Continue reading New Product Annoucement: Weintek cMT-CTRL01 – IIoT Programmable Logic Controller
Product Introduction Over the past few years, Weintek have continuously invested in research and development, driving innovation with the cMT Series. As the series grows with even more capabilities it is gaining acceptance in IIoT applications which rely heavily on network communication support. Nonetheless, Weintek is aware that not all factories were built with network connectivity in mind. In many cases, establishing network and wiring can be an obstacle for system upgrades, this is especially true if the installation needs to be made on a moving platform. In such cases, WiFi can come to the rescue. In light of this, Continue reading New Product Announcement: cMT-SVR-200 – cMT Server with WiFi
Product Introduction and Features Being compact and cost-effective, Weintek 7” HMI have always been a popular product. With that in mind, Weintek have introduced a new 7” HMI: cMT3071. The new model aims to make cMT Series models a more accessible option allowing more of our customers to build their smart factories using cMT’s rich, powerful features. The cMT3071 boasts higher hardware spec than its iE/iP/eMT Series counterparts in every aspect, with better computational performance it delivers a richer user experience. Equipped with a dual-core Cortex A9 1GHz CPU, 4GB Flash and 1GB RAM, the cMT3071 runs more smoothly, allows projects with Continue reading New Product Announcement – cMT3071 – 7″ HMI
The reduced interface in EasyBuilder Pro for the cMT-GXX series Gateway means that to start the EasyAccess 2.0 service we have to find a way to set the EasyAccess Control word LW 10820 to “1” to start the service. (At this point it is assumed that you have already purchased EasyAccess 2.0 and assigned it to your cMT-GXX gateway using PC Activator or the online service in on the web portal.) The Macro below will set the required control word to enable the service: =========================================== macro_command main() short EA2Enable = 1 // EA2Enable is a short (16bit word) and we’re Continue reading TechTip: Enabling EasyAccess 2.0 on a cMT-GXX Gateway
Integrating miscellaneous factory automation equipment is rarely an easy task since often each machine uses a different controller. When integrating with other IT systems, the variety of protocols often presents a challenge. In 1995, the OPC standard was released to address this issue, in 2006, OPC UA (Unified Architecture) made it possible to get the same information from machines regardless of operating system. The cMT-G02 communication gateway is not only equipped with an Ethernet port, but also supports WiFi which enables connectivity where conventional network wiring provision is not practical. With built-in de-facto IIoT protocols, MQTT & OPC UA, the Continue reading New product announcement – cMT-g02 IIoT Gateway
We’re Exhibiting at the Factories of The Future Exhibition in Manchester Feb 28-March 2nd 2018. The exhibition is running alongside the Industry 4.0 Summit – we’re on Stand Q15 – you can register here for free to attend – come along and discuss how we can help you to quickly develop & build your IIoT & implement with new and existing machines.
Introduced in V5.03.01 onwards of EasyBuilder Pro is an MQTT object for the XE Series HMI. MQTT is a lightweight machine to machine (M2M) “Internet of Things” (IoT) protocol & stands for “MQ Telemetry Transport”, it’s a publish/subscribe, simple and lightweight messaging protocol, designed for low-bandwidth, high-latency or unreliable networks. Users “subscribe” to their chosen “Topics” with an MQTT client. A topic is a UTF-8 string used by the broker to filter messages for each connected client. Topics consists of one or more topic levels. Each topic level is separated by a forward slash (topic level separator). Different users can Continue reading MQTT/IoT Capability for Weintek XE Series
