IDEC Corporation has introduced a handheld human-machine interface. The HG1P is lightweight and robust and with a 4.3″ LCD screen designed to enhance operator interactions for automated machine tending and robotics applications.

At only 500 g and with contoured hand grips, a hand strap and a wall hanging bracket, the HG1P’s ergonomic design is intended to make it comfortable to use for long periods. The hardy design is tested to withstand 1.5 m drops, and it uses a flush mount selector switch to prevent breakage.

The TFT colour LCD touch panel displays at 480x272 pixels and is bordered with 12 physical momentary function keys (F1 to F12) with click-feedback, which write to internal memory bits within the HMI. In addition, a hardwired emergency stop button, selector switch and a 3-position enabling switch make this handheld HMI flexible for designers and convenient for users.

The HG1P is configured with WindO/I-NV4 software as for other IDEC HMIs, and a common mini-USB cable or USB-A memory stick can be used to download configurations and save data.

Connectivity to automation platforms is via a standard 19-pin connector, using optional cables from IDEC up to 7 m long or user-created cables up to 15 m long. The cable transmits power, hardwired signals and digital communications. Available in both serial and Ethernet models, the HG1P supports major industrial communication protocols such as Modbus TCP/IP, Modbus RTU, FTP client, FTP server, webserver and user communication.
