Mitsubishi Electric Automation Introduces Graphic Operation Terminal with Touchscreen Capability

This unique technology allows operators to interact with the HMI similarly to a tablet or smartphone with intuitive gestures and multi-touch actions.

VERNON HILLS, Ill. - Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. introduces the GOT2000 Series, a human machine interface (HMI) that monitors and controls machine components with a graphical touchscreen. This unique technology allows operators to interact with the HMI similarly to a tablet or smartphone with intuitive gestures and multi-touch actions.


The GOT2000 acts as a seamless gateway to industrial automation devices, including programmable logic controllers (PLC), variable Mitsubishi Electric Automation Introduces Graphic Operation Terminal with Touchscreen Capabilityfrequency drives, servos and temperature controllers. The display is designed to optimize operator control and monitoring of device and line status.

The GOT2000 Series can also integrate wireless LAN communications, allowing for flexible system designs. Other features include expansion slots for optional communication and dual processors. Particularly useful to OEMs is a flexible SD card drive that provides storage, as well as an interface to quickly load program, OS, and PLC backup files. Additionally, remote access to the HMI and connected equipment allows for easy maintenance and training.

End users can take advantage of the GOT2000's functionality to provide user access and logging information, as well as storage of work instructions from standard Adobe®, Word® and PowerPoint® documents, and video recording and playback.

The GOT2000 Series graphic operation terminal provides options for virtually all types of industrial automation applications. Large screens up to 15" provide excellent performance for automotive and other large facilities, the white frame models provide an easy-to-clean flat surface for food and beverage applications, and smaller screen sizes down to 3.7" provide flexible options for any size machine.

Additional information about the GOT2000 Series is available at the product web page on the Mitsubishi Electric Automation web site. Information on Mitsubishi Electric Automation's comprehensive line of factory automation products and solutions is also available.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
