Intelligent multifunction display with IO-Link
Decentralised processing of analogue signals, good readability of different process parameters and freely selectable scaling factors
- Clearly legible display
- Different modes configurable via IO-Link or setting menu
- Change of display to red/yellow/green when set limit is exceeded or not reached
- 16-bit resolution
- Additional functions such as tare, filter, averaging, signal combination
Analogue display 4.0
The new multifunctional display is more than just a display: It pre-processes digital signals in a decentralised manner and, if necessary, passes this information on to a higher-level controller. This intelligent feature makes it ideally suited for Industry 4.0 applications.
Versatile analogue value display
The intelligent display visualises different process parameters of sensors with an analogue output or of transmitters with a standard signal output. The freely adjustable scaling factors make it possible to convert and indicate the input signals as physical values (e.g. pressure, temperature or volumetric flow quantity). If you use a pressure transmitter, for example, the volume of a tank can be displayed. It is also possible to offset input signals against each other, e.g. for differential pressure measurement.
All settings can be made via a modern, resistive touchscreen interface. The display automatically changes from display mode to parameter setting mode. Alternatively, all settings can also be made via IO-Link. All parameters are displayed in clear text on the screen, enabling an easy and intuitive use. A password mechanism provides protection against manipulation.
Monitoring of limit values
The user can define up to four limit values. Up to four transistor outputs switch if a set limit is not reached or exceeded. In addition the IO-Link version sends the pre-processed information directly to the PLC.
The states of the outputs are displayed and the colour of the display can be shown in red, yellow or green depending on the process value. With free text entry, units can be assigned to those values that are not already listed.
