OM 1124

U$ 269

The OM1124 Annunciator/Lamp Panel provides a flexible and cost-effective alternative to expensive hard wired indicator lights and annunciator panels.  The panel features 24 user- legendable, high intensity LED light bars arranged in three rows of eight lamps.  Each of the lamps can be individually controlled to be on, off, or flash.

Lamps can be custom labeled by the user with a plastic insert.  The insert can be a custom legend with text and/or graphics, and slips into a protective pocket behind the faceplate.

The OM1124 Annunciator/Lamp Panel is part of Optimation's OptiMateŽ series.  Each OptiMateŽ module is designed to connect to a microprocessor or most PLC's with a single cable connection.  OptiMateŽ modules can be used individually or together with any combination of other OptiMateŽ modules.

When used with a microprocessor system, simple communications over either an RS232 or RS422 communications cable allows the microprocessor to directly control each lamp.

When used with a PLC, operation is transparent to the user.  All the user must do to totally control lamp operation is write the required lamp states to PLC registers or turn on ladder logic coils.  The OM1124 takes care of the rest.

24 Plug-In LED Light Bars
Steady on  or synchronized flash mode
Red, green, or yellow lamps available
User Legendable
Stand alone capability with direct connection to most PLCs
Compatible with any computer via serial communications
Mix and match with other OptiMateŽ modules

Saves valuable I/O rack space
Eliminates the need for controller I/O modules for operator panel use
Reduces system integration and retrofit costs
Removes and replaces maintainability
Rapid future expansion
Reduced maintenance costs
Attractive, eye- appealing appearance
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.

PLC Multi Modules

The OptiMateŽ series provides the means to construct large custom panels with standard building block modules.  OptiMateŽ modules can be grouped together or separated by up to 4000 feet.  Any combination of operator panels and I/O can be incorporated into a system. 

Microprocessor-Based Systems

OptiMateŽ modules connect to any computer or microprocessor- based system through a serial  link.  Either RS232 or RS422 communications can be employed.  The microprocessor controller simply  polls for module data or sends module commands to completely  control the operator panels and IO.

Legending the Lamps

Legending the OM1124 module involves simply sliding a legend transparency behind the module overlay.  The bezel can be removed from the front of the module.  Once this is done, a legend transparency 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 OM1124  data sheet.
