Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
: 23 May, 2009  (New Product)
Combined machine control and touch screen displays from 3.5’ to 15’ suit medium to high complexity automation applications

Optional Windows® and VxWorks® operating systems and preloaded GF_PACK applications also available
Gefran’s new GF_VEDO high performance touch screen operator panels provide economical and complete HMI and machine control for medium to high complexity automation applications. Available in 6.5”, 10.4”, 12.1” and 15” displays, all feature the GAB (Gefran Automation Builder) – a single programming environment which seamlessly combines PLC and SCADA graphic page display programming, and a full complement of fieldbus expansion and peripheral ports.

Depending upon the colour display size, the graphics resolutions available are 640x480 (VGA, 800x600 (SVGA), or 1024x768 (XVGA). Smaller models are available as touch screen display only or with an integral tactile keypad for additional functionality. The rugged and durable range is based upon powerful 32-bit processors with a choice of RAM and solid state DOM (DiskOn-Module) general purpose memory. With no conventional hard drives and no requirement for cooling fans, the GF_VEDO range has no moving parts and is particularly suited to harsh and high vibration environments. Faceplate protection is to IP65 and operating temperature range 0ºC to 50ºC.

Field bus interfacing connectivity options include CANopen, Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP with fixed peripheral ports for 2 x Ethernet 10/100 Base-T, RS485, 2x USB, PS2 and Mouse. The operator panels can also be used in conjunction with Gefran’s USB connected TF32 keyboards which provide additional fieldbus interconnectivity, digital inputs, input key and LED functions; expanding the application potential of the GF­­_VEDO.

Gefran Automation Builder (GAB) is a single programming environment which seamlessly combines OpenPCS PLC programming, based on the universal IEC61131-3 language, and SCADA graphic page display using JAVA based VISUAL designer software. GAB helps to ensure lower development and maintenance costs with high levels of application reliability and security.

For complete application flexibility, the GF_VEDO range can include alternative operating systems such as Windows XP Embedded or VxWorks and additionally, preloaded and ready-to-run applications such as GF_PACK software for plastics extrusion and injection moulding can be supplied as a part of complete plastics industry machine control solutions including Gefran’s temperature, process and motion controls.

The complete GF_VEDO range also includes 3.5” and 5.7” combined HMIs and PLCs with PLC expansion via a built-in GILOGIK Bus for use with a wide selection of analogue and digital I/O modules, temperature and counter modules.
