I used 6 of these screens to display 3 temperatures each on 6 different tanks in a blending/packaging area in our plant. I tied them all to a Allen Bradley Micro850 and used the PLC to format the display data and send it to the screens over Modbus TCP. I hacked the displays to use power over ethernet, so they are each a single-wire hookup to the PLC cabinet. I have no complaints about the ViewMarq screens themselves - they perform very well (I ordered 4 new and 2 refurbished). The documentation side of things is very sparse if you are not using the Automation direct PLC products, so I had to spend quite a while troublshooting and researching how Modbus TCP works and how to get the Micro850 to speak the same language.1 person found this review unhelpful.
