With Comprehensive Features
The robust TFT, color touch LCD gives excellent visibility and
features long-life (50,000 hours) LED backlighting. Screen sizes range
from 3.5 to 10 inches.
• LED backlighted TFT LCD
• Wide viewing angle
• More than 65,000 display colors
• Stores up to 120 MBs of screen data
When developing the NB series, we considered every aspect of the
design to give you maximum flexibility. A typical example is the
portrait or landscape display mode.
• Portrait or landscape display mode
• Connection to Omron and non-Omron
devices, e.g. PLCs/inverters
• Serial, USB or Ethernet connectivity
• PictBridge printer connection
Saves you time
The NB series has many useful features that will make it easy to
create and maintain your projects, such as the USB memory stick
• USB memory stick support
• Animations and easy-to-use functions
• Multi-language support and tool
• On/off-line simulation
Turn your idea into an
application… exactly how you want it!
The NB series gives you all the features and functionality to easily
create intuitive operator screens really quickly. Features such as window
handling give you many screen-creation possibilities, while texts can be
defined in up to 32 languages. Furthermore, off-line simulation enables
you to quickly test your project.
Flexible window handling
Your scope to create screens for your project using the familiar window
concept was never greater than with the NB series. Three standard windows
maximize your creative freedom: 1) Basic for general or pop-up screens, 2)
Common for fixed or template screens and 3) Fast Selection for menu
screens. Besides the standard window, you can also show ‘window-inwindow’
using the indirect window component. And you can manage pop-up windows
using the direct window component. Furthermore, the NB series also
supports bottom windows and transparency for pop-up windows.
Currently supporting 32 languages, you will
find it easy to manage texts with the NB series. Thanks to the Text
Library function, you can store the texts used many times in a project.
Similarly, you can also store the text for a component supporting multiple
states (ON/OFF), using a text for each state. And you can do this together
with the font setting for each language.
The NB series gives you many possibilities to create animations easily and
quickly. Moving components can be created easily and in many ways. For
example, you may want to show a different status with text and graphics,
or showing free or trajectory movement while changing the displayed
graphic. All of this can be done by simply configuring the status, X/Y
coordinates and corresponding address.
Thanks to its powerful macros, the NB series
also allows you to do even more, such as perform calculations and
comparisons or iterations, and mathematical functions. It also enables you
to draw graphics and patterns on the NB screen, as well as writing /
reading a value from or to the local memory and the memory of a connected
The logical choice for
The feature-rich NB series has everything you will need for creating
applications for a wide range machines and in many industries, for
example, packaging, food, plastics and textiles. From a simple lid placing
or loading/unloading machine right up to an in-line filling or sealing
/labeling packaging machine. And last but not least, Omron's latest
NB-Designer software can be downloaded free of charge and at any time from
Always informed about
Event monitoring (alarming) is both flexible and easy to use. Not only
do you have the possibility to enter bit and word alarms for on/off or
on-condition triggering, there is also the possibility to use
different fonts and color to indicate varying degrees of status and
priorities. Specific alarms are indicated with an audible buzzer
sound, as well as by an accompanying text message, and you can even
create pop-up alarms for situations where immediate action has to be
Easy data presentation
Graphical representation of real-time and historical data is easy with
the NB series. As well as display of time sampling and trending data,
you have the option to save sampling data (max. 16 consecutive words)
of basic real-time trending data. And you can plot using x/y
coordinates, in which case sampling can be done via single or multiple
points and with historical data. Furthermore, data can be presented in
a variety of ways, such as sampling points using x and y components.
Protecting your developed project with a password using the NB series
is both a simple and secure matter. Among the comprehensive security
options is the possibility to define up to 16 minimum security levels
on screens, buttons and inputs, and you can set up to 32 specific
permission controls for each operator. There is also a register
condition (bit/word) control for a check of actual condition against a
predefined value, and a standard operator confirmation check to
confirm that critical actions have been performed by the operator.
The perfect partner for
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.
Similarly, data transfer of recipes between HMI and PLC (with data
back-up to external memory if required) is easy and the recipe screen
format is freely selectable, or can be a standard table if preferred.
