HMIs at industrial sites are often adversely affected by electrical noise from the surrounding installations. This can cause malfunction and lead to injury to persons or property. Has focused on the P5’s stability and robustness to provide end users with a reliable HMI product that can operate in harsh conditions
The P5 series provides cableless communications to the B1 PLC by offering a version that can be mounted onto the back of the P5 HMI. This provides more reliability and improves communication speeds with the added benefit of saving valuable space and installation costs.
With RS-422/RS-485 communication networks, termination resistors are often required to improve the reliability of communications. External termination resistors can make communication wiring onsite complex. To solve this problem, the P5 provides built-in termination resistor switches. Terminating can be achieved by turning on the switch to connect to termination resistors, or turn off the switch to disconnect the resistors.1
