EP6090-0000 | Display box with navigation switch and operating hours counter

The EP6090-0000 display box has an illuminated, low-reflection LC display with two lines of 16 characters. It can be used, for example, for displaying status messages or diagnostic information. A non-resettable operating hours counter is integrated and can be displayed and also read out via the controller.

Via the user program dynamic and static application-specific texts can be displayed, e.g. “Production counter: (count value)”. If the output text is longer than 16 characters, the box automatically switches to scrolling text mode. Two special characters can be defined via a 5 x 8 pixel matrix.

The statuses of the navigation switch – up, down, left, right and OK – are transmitted to the controller as binary variables and can be used, for example, to control the display.
