Mitsubishi logoGS HMI - Simple Yet Advanced Function
Entry-level visualization technology for the price-conscious

The new range of GS HMIs from Mitsubishi Electric are a cost-effective series offering a simple and flexible entry-level option for newcomers to the world of machine visualization.  Besides all the standard basic functions, it also includes additional ones such as data logging, FA transparent mode and operator authentication. 

The FA transparent function allows access to automation components such as PLCs, frequency inverters and servo amplifiers within a system via the HMI. This enables data from connected components to be viewed and parameters or other settings to be adjusted from a central location.

Cognex LogoThree Reasons You Need Performance Feedback from Barcode Reader
  1. See barcode no-reads. Diagnose barcode reading problems as they happen.
  2. Make immediate adjustments to improve your process. Once you have identified barcode problems in real time, you can take steps to stop them from happening.
  3. Achieve higher throughput, less handling. Performance feedback allows you to read more barcodes more quickly and decreases the need to manually examine bad reads and no-reads.

Get performance feedback capability in all DataMan industrial barcode readers, along with unmatched performance for 1-D barcode and for 2-D Data Matrix code reading.
