The HMI LCD16 is a modular device based on a 4-line LCD screen. It can be upgraded by the numerical keypad NUM25 with 5 additional function keys and electronic handwheel module HR1. This way, actual and setpoint values can be displayed and conveniently be input via keyboard and axes can easily be moved.
The function keys are user-programmable and can be used for calling the menu and/or for triggering control functions. The 5 keys (with LED) on the basic module, as well as on the handwheel module can be labeled using removable marker strips. Double assignment of keys and, in particular, of function keys is achieved by pressing the SHIFT key.
Other function keys are for directly accessing registers and flags, as well as inputs and outputs in monitor mode which can be disabled. This way, the user is given the possibility to test the application without application program
