HMI Features Predictive Maintenance Information



Driven by end user demand for improved visualization into its automation solutions portfolio, Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has introduced the GT2107 Wide Series Human Machine Interface (HMI). The GT2107 is an interface that monitors and controls machine components with a graphical touchscreen that connects to equipment such as PLCs, VFDs and servos. This compact HMI features a 7" wide display with 800 x 480 resolution for clear image quality and is equipped with a remote connectivity option through a VNC server.

The optional VNC server (VNC license sold separately) provides remote access to the HMI and connected equipment, allowing users to operate the system using tablets or personal computers to view data in real time. The GT2107 also offers predictive maintenance information, giving plant managers the opportunity to proactively plan and manage equipment maintenance.

Beyond predictive maintenance information and remote connectivity, the GT2107 Series HMI offers other innovative features designed to meet the increasing factory automation pressures faced by engineering and plant managers, particularly in applications used in printing, solar, material handling, energy and small packing systems. These key features include:

  • Program backup/restore function
  • Two USB ports (device and host)
  • Interactive display for seamless integration with Mitsubishi Electric devices
  • Device monitoring
  • Logging
  • Factory automation transparency (download/upload through front USB to equipment)
  • Servo maintenance function
  • SD card drive.

The GT2107 HMI provides end users with access to logged information, while the wide video graphics array (WVGA) allows them to see more information on the screen. A keyboard, mouse or other host device can be connected through the USB host. In addition to USB device ports and an SD card drive, Ethernet and serial connectivity are provided as standard features.

"The GT2107 is a huge advancement in HMI technology," said Agnieszka Zupancic, Senior Product Marketing Engineer at Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. "It was designed to provide as much information as possible to improve system operation, troubleshooting and maintenance, on small, low cost HMIs. Both our end users and OEM customers will benefit from the innovations we built into the interface. For example, we expect that the flexible SD card drive, which stores projects, system applications and resource data, will be especially useful to OEMs."
