Jan. 9, 2024

CM5 HMI series lower-cost, high-performance HMIs in sizes from 4 in. to 22 in., and have a 1.6 GHz processor in the 10-in. and larger units. They also feature 43 Mbytes of memory, and provide better trending, extra data storage, faster communication, and improved file types including jpegs.

CM5 panels have many communication ports for plug-and-play connections with industrial networks, including serial and Ethernet ports and several supported protocols, such as Modbus, EtherNet/IP, and the lightweight MQTT(S) protocol used in many machine-to-machine (M2M) and IIoT applications. The 10-in. and larger models also have an additional Ethernet port, allowing them to act as a data bridge between two separate networks. Meanwhile, their USB ports provide immediate connections for programming and peripherals like keyboards, USB-to-audio converters, barcode scanners, additional memory storage, etc. The embedded SD-card slot provides easy project transfers or up to an additional 32 GB of data storage for log files

CM5 uses C-more’s freely downloadable configuration software, which has a built-in, time-saving project simulator, event manager, flexible recipes, array of screen objects, trend graphs, PID faceplates and true historical data logging.
