OM 1312

US 269

The OM1312 Setpoint/Display  provides 12 numeric fields which can be used for either setpoint entry or data display.  The 12 user-legendable field points are grouped as three sets of four.  Each group of four points is associated with one four-digit numeric display.  The SELECT button allows user selection of the required data to display.  For setpoints, the arrow buttons allow value adjustment.  Setpoints are retained even when power is off.

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

The OM1312 Setpoint/Display 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 read setpoints and write display values.

When used with a PLC, operation is transparent to the user.  All the user must do to read a setpoint  (or output a display value) is to read (write) PLC registers.  The OM1312 takes care of the rest.

Removes and replaces maintainability
Rapid future expansion
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 Field Points
Legending the OM1312 module involves simply sliding a legend transparency into the three 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 OM1312 data sheet.
