HMIs are a vital component of modern-day control systems, giving users a window to system data and operational control, all from a single interface. Since 2005, the C-more HMI line has reliably served thousands of applications and we are proud to offer the next generation of our C-more HMI: the CM5 series. Continuing AutomationDirect’s reputation for quality, performance, and value, these HMIs will never disappoint. With size options from a compact four inch to a huge twenty-two-inch display, the CM5 series not only provides more powerful hardware and more features than the EA9 series, but they do so at a lower cost! Wait until you see what the CM5 brings to the table! For those current EA9 customers, you already know the quality of AutomationDirect’s HMIs; and with the new CM5, we made the best even better. By upgrading to the CM5 you can save hundreds with each new purchase over the already great value of the EA9. And switching your existing projects to the new HMIs is easy! The CM5 is backwards compatible with any current EA9 project, and it’s done automatically with just a few clicks! When you open the project in the new CM5, the project conversion screen pops up. Just select the new panel. If you want, the C-More HMI software will even resize your screen objects to fit the new panel. Click OK and the software will do the rest. Now you’re ready to load your project to the new CM5 panel. Along with the cost savings, you also get the highest performance from the updated hardware and display; and new features, like dual Ethernet ports, MQTTs support, new display file types, an integrated Data Management tool, and so much more! Of course, the CM5 HMI works effortlessly with AutomationDirect PLCs, and couldn’t be easier to set up. First, connect the HMI to the PLC. CM5 HMIs have Ethernet and multiple serial communication options. Open your CM5 project, go to Setup>Protocol Manager, add the PLC protocol, configure the settings and you’re all set! From here it’s a cinch to configure your tags, or save yourself tons of time by using the Import feature to add them all at once. Now when your project is loaded on the panel there’s nothing else to do to configure communication. It’s as simple as that! But what about non-AutomationDirect PLCs? CM5 has you covered. Not only does it support all communication protocols in our own PLCs, but it also supports dozens of drivers from manufacturers such as Allen-Bradley, GE, Omron, Mitsubishi, and Siemens. Plus, CM5 HMIs also support standard protocols such as MODBUS, Ethernet/IP, FTP, and the ultra-secure MQTTs, bringing it to the cutting edge of IIOT and other cloud applications. No matter which PLC, HMI, or other devices you currently use, the new C-more CM5 series is the perfect choice for you. Bring your user interfaces to the next level with these powerful and sleek panels; and at a price that will make anyone happy. Visit automationdirect.com/hmi-panels to learn more.
