With the system, synoptic
boards and information screens can be created without any restriction.
With these panels, built up with modules, almost every dimension or
application is within reach.
Various industrial applications are possible, such as on-line messages
about quality control, production schedules, the visualisation of a
process flow, error messages, status reports of machines etc. The
system can operate either autonomously, or under the supervision
of a PLC, a PC or a central computer; an optimal functioning is
LED-modules, mountable in
both directions in matrix on a DIN-rail system, from the basis. An
aluminium muffled frame is placed around the elements, if so
desired with an antireflecting screen.
The modules are internally connected by way of a bus system. A central
control unit driven by a quick microprocessor sends the graphic
information towards the different modules.
On these boards texts and numbers can be shown, as well as symbols
and synoptics in every dimension. It is also possible, with a limited
resolution, to display the screen of a PC.
The synoptics are drafted and drawn on a
PC. A control condition can be assigned to each symbol, text or synoptic,
determining if the specific graphic information has to be displayed
on the notice board.
If the synoptic boards are controlled via a serial line, several boards
can be cascaded. Every display can possess its own address and subaddress,
so a series of boards can be controlled simultaneously enabling
the customer to adapt the information on each board individually.
