With all the features of a traditional HMI, the addition of a built in cMT server allows the cMT3151 to act as a gateway between the plant floor and the rest of the outside world. And the built in EasyAccess 2.0 option provides a safe and secure VPN connection and encrypted data transmission between a remote PC (or a handheld device/tablet connected to a router) and the cMT3151.
The ability to act as a server allows the cMT3151 to provide engineers universal access to its control system. Supporting more than 300 controller drivers and IIoT protocols like MQTT, OPC UA, SQL database, etc., the MT3151 provides maximum connectivity to third party devices and management systems. Remote access through EasyAccess 2.0 or the cMT Viewer application on handheld devices connected to a router provides unlimited control and monitoring capabilities from a distance, saving travel time and costs, and making for a more efficient worktime experience and allowing access to previously dark data.
The 15-in. analog resistive touchscreen has a 1024 x 768 display and is housed in a sturdy aluminum enclosure. Together with its 1GHz microprocessor and 4GB memory it provides quick response times for graphic intensive projects. Significant IO capability includes dual Ethernet ports and two serial ports. Built in audio and video ports allow for the option of adding external speakers and video input devices.
