ICP DAS provides two types of touch HMI devices, the TPD series and the VPD series. The TPD series is designed for home/building automation applications and the VPD series is designed for factory/machine automation applications. Both have many common features, such as a high-resolution touch screen, RTC, and a variety of communication interfaces, including RS-232/RS-485, Ethernet, USB. However, each still has its own specific features for its respective target applications.
For the TPD series, you can use an external wall box to help you smoothly blend the TPD series device into your decoration. For the VPD series, the rubber keypad, IP-65 waterproof front panel and DINRail/panel mounting are designed for harsh environment, and are especially suitable for factories.
HMIWorks is a free development tool that can be used to design ladder diagrams for softPLC logic for TouchPAD. A single TouchPAD becomes a touch HMI device which runs ladder logics.
1. Support for a wide range of Widgets, Shorten Development Time
There are many widgets included in the HMIWorks development tool, including Rectangle, Ellipse, Text, Picture, Line, TextPushButton, Slider, BitButton, HotSpot, CheckBox, Label, Timer, PaintBox, ObjectList, providing the most commonly-used functions, such as drawings, event handlers, and timing control, which effectively shortens development time.
5. C Language and Ladder Diagram Programming
6. Drag-and-drop, fully-integrated I/O Design
ICP DAS now supports many I/O devices, such as (P)ET-7000 series Modbus TCP modules, M-7000 series Modbus RTU modules, I-7000 series DCON modules and user-defi ned third party Modbus TCP devices. Users can expect that additional I/O devices will be supported by HMIWorks for the TouchPAD series in the future.
7. The Solution of Sophisticated Design
To realize multi-room touch or multi-terminal control in a large, complex system, users can utilize our PACs (Programmable Automation Controller) to bridge TouchPAD and a variety of I/O devices. Confi gured appropriately, PAC provides incredible power and fl exibility to build a comprehensive system which spreads all of TouchPAD and all kinds of I/O devices.
8. The Cost Effective Solution for Complex System
Though μPAC-7186 has limited computing resources, using only uPAC-7186 is suffi cient in some cases.
External Wall Box for the TPD Series
The External Wall Box is a firm mounting solution designed to easily mount a TPD series device to a wall. The EWB-Txx is the most suitable mounting solution for concrete, brick, wood, or other solid surfaces where in-wall mounting is not possible. The EWB-Txx provides an endpoint for wiring and conceals cable runs.
