C-more HMI's

C-more HMI - Easy to configure, install and maintain ...


C-more industrial touch screens are designed to give you the best cost of ownership, considering initial price, features, ease of use, reliability and free award-winning technical support. More and more people have found that C-more touch panels have what it takes to meet most of their HMI application needs.

C-more is programmed with easy-to-use configuration software that provides a powerful set of tools for developing simple or very complex applications. The C-more software makes touchscreen panel setup and C-more programming quick and simple, and all C-more touch panels use the same programming package

Compatibility

A great feature of the C-more HMI panels is their connectivity to many different types of devices. In addition to DirectLOGIC PLCs, you can connect to many Allen-Bradley, GE, Mitsubishi, Omron, or Modicon PLCs (see list below).

C-More can also connect to multiple devices and different brands of PLCs simultaneously! C-more can act as an interpreter or "protocol bridge", passing PLC tag values back and forth between separate PLC protocols.

AB Ethernet drivers allow the simple connectivity of multiple panels and/or multiple Allen-Bradley PLCs. We have also added ControlLogix® Ethernet/IP Tag Messaging support. This feature helps increase productivity by reducing the time often required to map your PLC tag database into the HMI. You can import the RSLogix 5000 L5K file directly or with just a few clicks of the mouse you can directly enter your ControlLogix/ CompactLogix tags from the PLC into C-more. No mapping or translation required!

Networking

Full featured C-more panels can communicate via various types of networking protocols using the Ethernet network interface. The Ethernet port can be used for downloading a project to the panel, for communication with multiple PLCs (and multiple brands of PLCs), and for advanced features such as e-mail and FTP access and allowing the panel to act as a Web server.

DirectLogic ECOM Ethernet enables your full featured C-more panel to connect to your AutomationDirect PLC Ethernet network. For the high-speed Ethernet LAN 10/100BaseT network connection, the following PLC modules can be used.

PLCEthernet Module NeededPLCEthernet Module Needed
DL05H0-ECOM or H0-ECOM100DL205H2-ECOM or H2-ECOM100

Remote Access and Control

Remote Access and Control

The Remote Access and Control feature allows remote users to connect, monitor, and control any C-more panel that supports Ethernet. With the proper network configuration, remote users can connect with two simple methods:

  • PC Web Browser
    Using a Web browser on any PC to operate and monitor the local HMI system from any location with network access.

  • iPhone / iPad / iPod touch
    The C-more Remote HMI App allows remote access and control for mobile users who have a wi-fi or cellular connection. This App can be downloaded from the App StoreSM.

  • No Additional Hardware required
    The C-more Remote Access feature resides in the panel and requires no option modules. Simply configure the network settings in the panel project and connect the panel to a network.

  • Multilevel Logon Security
    Three Remote Access user accounts can be configured and stored in the panel project. Each account allows up to five remote users to be connected simultaneously.

  • Multilevel Access Control
    Each account can be configured in one of the following levels of access:
    - View Only
    - View and allow Screen Change only
    - Full Control

  • Programmable Notification Tags
    Activation and Notification Tags provide an option for each account to have associated user configured TAGS that allow the Panel project or PLC project to indicate that a remote user is connected or to enable or disable the remote access feature. These tags can be used to activate alarms, events or notifications to alert local operators that a remote user is connected. The Disable/Enable TAGS can be assigned to a switch to allow local operators the ability to enable or disable the remote access feature for security or safety reasons.
