Best-in-class display

NB_best in class design.jpg
As the display is one of the most important components for an HMI we only settle with the best LCDs for our products and so also for the NB HMI. The complete family therefor is equipped with LED backlighted TFT LCDs that have a good viewing angle and brightness. Together with a large memory your HMI application can contain many images to create a very good looking application.
  • LED backlighted TFT LCD
  • Wide viewing angle
  • More than 65,000 display colours
  • 128 MB of internal memory

Smart design

NB_smart design.jpg
When developing the NB series, we considered every aspect of the design to give you maximum flexibility. Where possible we use new technology and proven standards. Some examples are the portrait or landscape display mode and PictBridge printer connection.
  • Portrait or landscape display mode
  • Connection to Omron and non-Omron devices, e.g. PLCs/inverters
  • Serial, USB or Ethernet connectivity
  • PictBridge printer connection

Easy to use

  • Alarm/Event displays
  • Bit state switches/lamps
  • Multiple state switches/lamps
  • List and dropdown list
  • Animation and moving components
  • Recipe data display/controls
  • Number and Text input/displays
  • Trend curve and plotting charts
  • Chart and bar graphs
  • Meter, scales and sliders
  • Grid and historical data displays
  • Function keys
  • Timer function
  • Vector and bitmap graphics

The perfect partner for CP1

NB & CP1L.jpg
With its large range of screen sizes, ample specifications, rich functionality and proven Omron high quality, the new NB series has everything you need in a compact HMI to accompany Omron’s popular CP1 Compact Machine Controller range. The CP1 offers increasing degrees of sophistication to perfectly match your specific automation requirement and connection to the NB series is possible via Serial or Ethernet. Many features of the NB HMI can directly interface with the CP1 PLC memory, like recipe, alarms and switching windows. Also we have created some special screens for CP1 to read PLC statuses, configured settings and error information.
