OM 406 - KM 406
The OM406 Indicator/Pushbutton Panel provides a flexible and cost-effective alternative to expensive hard-wired indicator lights and pushbuttons. The panel features 6 LED indicator lamps  and 4 user- legendable pushbuttons.  Each of the lamps can be individually controlled to be on, off, or flash.  Each of the buttons can be individually configured to operate as either a momentary or alternate-action pushbutton.

Lamps and buttons can be custom labeled by the user with plastic label inserts.  The inserts can be custom legended with text and/or graphics, and slipped into protective pockets behind the faceplate.

The OM406 Indicator/Pushbutton Panel is part of Optimation's OptiMateŽ series.  Each OptiMateŽ module is designed to connect to a microprocessor or to most PLC's with a single cable connection. Each 400 series OptiMateŽ module can be used individually, or together with any combination of other OptiMateŽ modules, but requires a separate communications port on the host.

When used with a microprocessor system, simple communications over an RS232 communications cable allows the microprocessor to directly control each lamp and to read the state of each button.

Direct Connect to PLCs
OptiMateŽ modules connect and operate directly with most major PLCs.  A simple cable connection allows the PLC to access each button directly simply by reading 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 Buttons
Legending the OM406 module involves simply sliding legend transparencies in two pockets in the module overlay.  The bezel can be removed from the front of the module.  Once this is done, legend transparencies can be placed in the pockets in the overlay (behind the lexan surface layer).

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 OM406 data sheet.

Configuring  the OM406  requires the OM-WIN EDIT Configuration Editor, a cable connecting your P.C. to the module, and a 5VDC power supply with a center  negative plug: all  sold  by Optimation.
