Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. has introduced the GT2107 wide-series human-machine interface (HMI). The HMI monitors and controls machine components with a graphical touchscreen that connects to equipment such as PLCs, VFDs and servos. It features a 7"-wide display with 800 × 480 resolution and is equipped with a remote connectivity option through a VNC server.

The optional VNC server (VNC license sold separately) provides remote access to the HMI and connected equipment, enabling users to operate the system using tablets or personal computers to view data in real time.

The GT2107 offers predictive maintenance information, giving plant managers the opportunity to plan and manage equipment maintenance. Beyond predictive maintenance information and remote connectivity, the HMI offers other features designed to meet increasing factory automation pressures, including program backup/restore function, two USB ports (device and host), interactive display for seamless integration with Mitsubishi Electric devices, device monitoring, logging, factory automation transparency (download/upload through front USB to equipment), servo maintenance function and SD card drive.

The GT2107 HMI provides users with access to logged information, while the wide video graphics array (WVGA) enables them to see more information on the screen. A keyboard, mouse or other host device can be connected through the USB host.

In addition to USB device ports and an SD card drive, ethernet and serial connectivity are provided as standard features.
