Making it easier for machine operators and maintenance personnel to monitor and control machine components, Mitsubishi Electric Automation introduces handheld models for its GOT2000 Series, a human machine interface (HMI) that optimizes operator control and monitoring of device and line status. The GT25 Handy GOT, a portable interface offered in both 5.7-inch and 6.5-inch models, connects to industrial automation devices, including programmable logic controllers (PLC), variable frequency drives, servos and temperature controllers.
The handheld HMI displays information on a high resolution VGA touchscreen and allows operators to easily carry it with one hand. While its compact design allows operators to work wherever they can best observe physical machine changes, the GT25 Handy GOT provides powerful functionality.
“Freedom of movement allows users to take the HMI around the machine and make changes or monitor status from a convenient location,” stated Lee Cheung, product marketing engineer, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. “The GT25 Handy GOT is an external connection interface, so it can be easily connected or removed as needed.”
The GT25 Handy GOT can be used in any application that involves local setup, operation, monitoring and maintenance of system components from a graphical interface in which mobility is required. It can also be used as a teach pendant for robots. Multiple safety and security measures, such as an emergency stop switch and an enable switch keep the operator safe in case of emergency.
