1KW Potentiometer connected to an Analog Input - scale the input readings (0-4096) to
fit the desired range for the parameters. A marked dial can provide a rough
indicator of the settings, but if you have an LCD display then you can obtain
very precise settings.
||Extremely low cost (<

Use the MD-HMI Module (T100MD+ Only)* - This new product comprises one 4 lines x 20 characters LCD
display; a 16 keys keypad and 8 LEDs. This module is plugged into the LCD port
and the expansion port of the PLC. It does not use up any of the PLC's I/O. The
keys and the LEDs appear an expanded I/Os to the CPU.
||Numeric keypad data entry is
much easier. Professional looking front bezel.
||Works only on T100MD+ model.

Serial Port Based HMI
All the T100MD and MX families of
PLCs support MODBUS and OMRON C20H protocols on both their RS232C and RS485
ports. Hence the PLC can work with a wide variety of third party HMIs and SCADA
software that speaks MODBUS or OMRON protocols via the RS232 or RS485 port. The
following are just some of those we have tested or known to work with our PLCs,
Any HMI or SCADA that supports generic MODBUS devices should work with the
tested the the 400 series model KM420. Other models should be useable in the
similar manner. Both MODBUS protocol and the Optimate proprietary HEX protocols
can be used. (When using Hex protocol, the PLC is the master and the HMI is the
Touch Panel Display
Use RIDDER's Panel-PC
selecting the PLC type as Modicon 984 RTU slave, the Taian OPS6 touch panel
works very well with the M-series PLC's RS485 port. We tested the Op26L series
model. Other models should be useable in the similar manner.
