Data rates are 1200 Continue reading New Product Announcement: Expanded Communications and Analog I/O Capabilities for the BRX PLC

New Product Announcement: Weintek cMT X Series

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
