GOT2000 HMI offers new window to production control
GOT2000 HMI offers new window to production control.
The simple cleans lines of Mitsubishi Electric’s flagship GOT2000 Series HMIs belittle what is inside. From the automatic display that detects an approaching operator and displays the screen, to the tablet-style screen operation and highest quality graphics. The GOT2000 series provides a range of models and sizes to meet the needs of the broadest spread of applications.
Their enhanced functionality extends performance beyond monitoring and visualisation, to provide features that help to reduce downtime, enable fast recovery from simple errors, increase availability and boost production efficiency. They offer users a genuine perspective on their automation processes and provide a platform to solve the typical production problems that drive down OEE.
The comprehensive range offers screen sizes from 3.7 to 19” in two basic ranges: the GT27 for high-end applications that demand the highest levels of performance and functionality; and the GT23 for cost-sensitive applications that still require high performance standards. An alternative software HMI version, the GT SoftGOT2000, realises all of the GOT2000 features on a PC or panel computer.
Seamless gateway to many devices
The GOT2000 offers seamless connectivity to Mitsubishi Electric automation devices such as PLCs, variable speed drives, servo drives and robots, simplifying automation system set up. It also offers full connectivity to most popular automation equipment including Siemens and Rockwell PLC
Inbuilt Ethernet communications means users can operate the GOT2000 remotely from a PC (VNC Server), tablet, or portable terminal. An MES interface option enables the GOT2000 to transmit data collected from PLCs and other automation devices directly to higher level system databases, eliminating the need for gateway PCs or complex programming.
A new high-speed processors deliver responsive HMI operation even during high-load activities such as logging, script, alarm or device data transmission, and the GOT2000’s “FA transparent” function enables a pass through function to link from a PC through the HMI to any supported connected automation products.
Increased memory size
The product data compression technology plus up to 128 MB with the use of a standard SD card make it possible for data such as the programs, parameters of the programmable controller CPU, motion controller, robot controller and CNC can be backed up onto the GOT’s SD card or USB memory. With a backup of data in the GOT, there’s no need to use a personal computer when replacing the industrial devices such as the programmable controller CPU. All replacement and restoration can be completed with just the GOT.
Suitable for gloved operators
GOT2000 series HMIs deliver tablet-like usability with the introduction of multi-touch and gestures, even when wearing gloves. Screen gestures enable users to easily enlarge screens for better visualisation and easy operation of small switches. After enlarging, users can scroll across the display. Object gestures allow specific objects to be enlarged, scrolled or flicked, including historical data lists, alarm displays, trend graphs and documents.
GOT2000 screens also allow two-point pressing, for simultaneous operation of two switches on important operations – such as ”interlock release” and ”start”, eliminating the need for external hardware.
GOT2000 HMIs provide 65536 colours, and support a wide range of image formats – including PNG – for clear screens with well defined objects that are crisp even when enlarged or reduced. The HMI also supports a library of outline fonts in different sizes. Simplified startup and debugging Reusable sample projects
All GOT2000 HMIs provide Ethernet, RS232 and RS422/485 communications. SD card and front and rear USB ports deliver increased flexibility. Options include a wireless LAN interface for communication with PCs and tablets, enabling users to download/upload screen data and use the FA Transparent function.
Easy screen design
The new GOT2000 screens are fully compatible with GT Works3 software for screen design, with features such as the ability to use templates and sample projects to greatly reduce the number of steps in the screen creation process.
