2900 Operator Terminal
The 2900 was designed for use with compact programmable controllers. It enables the user to easily view and change values within the PLC. It is fully programmable using ScreenMaker Windows software which is provided free of charge. You can customize each screen to fit the current application.
The up/down arrows allow the user to navigate through screens in an order assigned by the project designer. In addition, the PLC can force the 2900 to a desired screen (i.e. Faults, prompts, etc.). The up/down arrows also allow the operator to increment or decrement data values.
The YES/NO keys manipulate individual bits internal to the PLC. These keys can be used for any function that a traditional pushbutton is used for, however, they can also be redefined to function differently on every screen.
