OM 414 - KM 414





The OM414 Setpoint/Display Panel is a low cost/ high performance man/machine interface with a broad range of operator input and display capabilities.  The panel  includes six field points which can be used for either  setpoint  entry or data  display.

Setpoints (display points) can be custom labeled by the user with plastic inserts.  The inserts can be custom legended with text and/or graphics, and slipped into protective pockets behind the faceplate.

Setpoint adjustment can be performed by use of the arrow keys to move the value up or down.  The Select key is used to scroll between the six setpoints.  An LED to the left of each label insert shows which one is currently active.
The OM414 Setpoint/Display  Panel is part of Optimation's OptiMateŽ series. Each OptiMateŽ module is designed  to connect  to a PLC with a single cable connection.  OptiMateŽ 400 series panels can be used individually with a PLC or in a microprocessor system. 

When used with a microprocessor system, simple communications over an RS232 communications cable allows the microprocessor to directly read setpoints and update each display point.

When used with a PLC, operation is transparent to the user.  Panel functions tie directly into your PLC ladder  logic program.   The OM414 takes care of the rest.

Direct Connect to PLCs
OptiMateŽ modules connect and operate directly with most major PLCs.  A simple cable connection allows the PLC to control each lamp directly simply by setting bits in data registers.  Everything else is totally transparent.

Microprocessor-Based Systems
OptiMateŽ modules connect to any computer or microprocessor-based system through a serial link. RS232  communications can be employed.  The microprocessor controller simply polls for module data or sends module commands to completely control the operator panels.

Legending the Field Points
Legending the OM414 module involves simply sliding a legend transparency into the  pockets in the panel overlay.  The bezel can be removed from the front of the module.  Once this is done legend transparencies can be placed behind the overlay.

A legend transparency can be created by a number of  methods. Computer graphics programs combined with overhead transparency paper and a laser printer and/or copier produce excellent results.  Other options are listed in the OM414 data sheet.

Configuring the OM414 requires the OM-WIN EDIT Configuration Editor, a cable connecting your PC to the module, and a 5VDC power supply with a center negative plug:  all sold by Optimation.
