Touchscreens

HG1F - 4.6" Touchscreen

Overview

Control goes beyond on and off, stop and go. It’s about knowledge, response and making the right decisions. Pushbuttons, lights and indicators can do the work, but they don’t give you information. Maintaining a typical control panel full of components takes time away from more important tasks. There’s one very smart solution: the HG1F, the latest operator interface in the IDEC SmartTouch family. This superbright, compact HG1F has all the features of a large touchscreen and it’s still small enough to fit in a tight space and priced to fit in a tight budget.

Key Features

  • Compact in size
  • Available in RS232 or RS422/RS485 Version
  • Super bright LCD Screen with 500 cd/m2
  • Analog Resisitive touch panel enables flexible screen layout
  • High Resolution: 300x100 pixels
  • Screen Orientation: Landscape or Portrait
  • Large memory capacity of 1MB
  • Approvals: UL , cUL, Class1Div.2 Hazardous Location, Nema 13, IP 65, CE

Highlights

Install anywhere—literally!

The HG1F’s super-slim design has only a 35.3 mm panel depth. And it can be mounted horizontally or vertically to fit your needs; the programming software supports both orientations. If you need to fit an unusual size panel or just want more choices, you’ll have a readable display either direction.

Value clarity

Clear responses, visible displays and unmistakable instructions to operators—these are the hallmarks of a smart HMI, one that will surpass every button and every old panel. The HG1F includes a high-speed CPU processor that responds to commands and changes displays instantly, so you’re never in doubt about input or status. When you see the HG1F, the screen really stands out. It’s easy to read, even from an angle, and you can set contrasts to create the ideal display for any lighting condition. And the higher resolution screen gives you more real estate than other small screens; take as much space as you need to make the elements and text on your screen as understandable as possible.

Simple Programming

HG1F 4.6” LCD Screen is programmable with WindO/I-NV2, Windows-based software walking you through configuration of your images and your workspace. Dragging and dropping makes screen creation fast,even for beginners. Previewing and editing are handled through WindO/I-NV2’s extremely user-friendly interface. The software comes with built-in PLC drivers for your convenience and over 5000 library of images to help you create cutting edge graphical screens.

Easy maintenance

An optional maintenance cable for HG1F OI touchscreens provides a simple way to duplicate project data without using a PC (and application software). Project data can easily be copied by connecting a cable between two HG1F touchscreens for program transfer. No wasted time, no need to re-input project data, and no need to drag a PC to the machine floor. Simply replace an older HG1F with a new HG1F right from the field.

Programming Software

WindO/I NV2


Overview

WindO/I-NV2 is IDEC's screen creation software for the HG1F, HG2F, HG3F and HG4F operator interfaces (touch screen displays.) WindO/I-NV2 is used to create projects or programs that layout display screens for the O/Is. Using this window based program, any of IDEC's touch screens can display information from a PLC, process status, or can be used to input data with virtual switches or keypads to make changes to a process.


WindO/I-NV2 is easy and intuitive. Many of the processes are self-explanatory and guide you from step-to-step as you configure the O/I. The help menus are simple, straightforward, and are a good resource for getting additional information.

Creating colorful displays has never been easier. With Symbol Factory you have 5000 built in images for your disposal. You can also import almost any Bitmap or JPEG file into your project.


If for some reason you can not use one of IDEC's acclaimed PLCs, WindOI/-NV2 comes with many communication drivers to talk to other PLCs such as Allen-Bradley, Omron, Modicon, GE Fanuc, Aromat, Siemens, Keyence, Koyo and many others.
