NKK Switches has expanded its programmable SmartDisplay IS Series offering. The S0109 is a single switch, human machine interface (HMI) solution packaged in a small panel mount, pushbutton-sized display that allows for monitor and control of applications. Offered in a uniquely small footprint, the S0109 is an easy way to add an HMI interface offering multifunction capabilities, many display options, and ease of use. With many analog and digital inputs/outputs, and several communication options, the S0109 is a perfect way to show system status and add control functionality in tight space requirements.
The analog inputs may be used to check status of gauges such as temperature, pressure, voltage, amperage, oil or gas levels, etc. The digital inputs can be used to check ON/OFF status of devices or to count the frequency of an event. The digital output can be used to signal to turn a device on or off based on preset values of the inputs. The digital input/output can be used for communication with another device, and there can be one PWM output. Switch presses can allow toggling between status, and pressing and holding the switch permits setting up or selecting an option.
This newest SmartDisplay offering is now available in a demonstration kit, the IS-S0109DEM, for evaluation of the S0109 into different applications. The IS-S0109DEM demonstration kit is a plug and play controller/indicator device made available to highlight the functionality and features of the powerful S0109 Single Switch Solution and requires little to no technical or engineering skills to install and operate. The kit consists of four potentiometers, four toggle switches, and four LEDs that simulate various inputs and outputs. The kit’s demonstration firmware illustrates the simplicity of using the S0109 and provides examples of potential application integration.
NKK customizes the S0109 device, per user requirements, with its in-house engineering design services. This allows the device to be programed with each customer’s unique images, specified actions and responses. The device can then be installed into the application as a complete subassembly.
