With its GOT1000 series of HMIs, Mitsubishi Electric has a comprehensive range of HMIs with enhanced functionality that offer capabilities beyond visualisation, providing additional features that are aimed at reducing downtime, enabling fast recovery from simple errors, increasing availability and boosting production efficiency. The new series provides a comprehensive range of both panel mounted and portable HMIs, in screen sizes from 3.7" to 15". The high resolution screens provide up to 65,536 colours and can display complex graphics, photographs - in Jpeg and Bitmap format - and documents like PDF, Powerpoint, Excel and Word. 64-bit RISC processors combined with specially developed high speed graphics processors set new benchmark levels of performance across the range, while features such as long-life LED backlighting, analogue touch functions, front-face USB port, an SD card slot and IP67 front panel sealing are standard across much of the range. Key features include the ability to back up the PLC program within the GOT terminal. Thus, if a PLC CPU should fail and need replacing or the program needs restoring for some unforeseen reason, there is no frantic search for the original program or any need to bring a PC down onto the production floor from which to load it. Once the PLC CPU has been changed, the program can be restored directly from the HMI, saving valuable time and effort and ensuring production is restarted as quickly as possible. In addition, rather than simply flagging up errors that occur, the GOT HMIs help to reduce downtime by providing a one-touch ladder jump function that shows exactly where in the ladder program the error exists and its cause.
