Compact, cost-effective PLC solution

Display Visions has developed a compact Modbus display module equipped with a 4.3in, bright and readable display. This specification makes it ideal for use on programmable logic controllers (PLCs), offered by many manufacturers like Siemens, Beckhoff, Panasonic etc.

The module supports Modbus/TCP and Modbus/RTU communication formats. It is equipped with WiFi, LAN and RS- 485 interfaces. The IPS display is characterised by a brightness of around 1,000cd/m2 and all-round readability. Regarding power, the unit can operate with any DC supply from 5 to 30VDC.

In a market dominated by products with much larger screens, 15in and more, this module opens new possibilities. With its Modbus indicator in a wall-mounted housing with 4.3in diagonal screen size, the design offers a compact, cost-effective solution. To meet demand for further small displays, the manufacturer has announced 7in versions, for example, will also be included in its range.
