SCHAUMBURG, IL (November 2009) -- Omron Industrial Automation (www.omron247.com) has introduced the space-saving NV3-Series cost-efficient HMIs to meet OEM and machine builders' needs for simple device connections to multi-vendor PLCs. They offer fast updates, large information capacity and high visibility for any application. The new HMIs are sized and priced for pairing with micro PLCs and compact AC drives or servo systems in small machines. Omron's NV3-Series HMIs enable machine builders to use their current choice of PLC model without redesigning an existing system.

Models with 3.1 inch monochrome screens (NV3W) offer 3-color backlighting and 64 x 128 pixel resolution. To simplify installation and reduce wiring costs, the 3.6 inch HMIs come with USB ports. NV-Designer Support Software for graphic interface development is available in Omron's CXONE Ver. 3.x, and CXONE-Lite Ver. 4.x (for micro PLCs) software suites or as a free, 180 day trial version.
The NV3-Series HMIs provide a single point of access for machine operators to easily
· Change speeds on an inverter or motion controller,
· Adjust the set point of a temperature loop, or
· View critical production machine parameters or alarms.
