New IMO I3
IMO Introduces its newest member to the IMO i3 range - The i3C Intelligent Control Station.

The i3 range of controllers has now been expanded to include the NEW i3C colour touch screen controller. The i3C offers users a larger colour display, a faster scan rate and a wider operating temperature. Based upon the i3A and i3B controller architecture, the new i3C features a 5.7” TFT colour touch screen with 32,000 colours, a faster 0.2ms/K scan rate and has the same built-in I/O options and uses the same communications options as our i3A and i3B controllers.

These are some of the reasons why you should consider the i3C colour touch intelligent control station:

-Bright 5.7" TFT colour touch screen capable of displaying photo-realistic objects and imager for users that need a larger screen or bold colour graphics.

-Same built-in I/O options as our i3A and i3B controllers - with up to 44 points.

-Faster logic scan rate (0.2m/SK) for larger or more demanding applications.

-Offers 3 Serial ports (USB programming port plus 2 RS- 232/485 serial ports), unusual for a controller in this price range.

-Includes unique onboard MicroSD™ memory for data logging and upgrading programs.
And there's more...

-Only 3.5'' deep and mounts on any panel space about 7'' x 6'' -Wider operating temperature (-10C to 60C) meets a greater range of applications. -Works with the i3 Series family of field installable add-on modules such as Ethernet, Mobile modem, telephone modem and radio modem-mix and match i3A, i3B and i3C and use the same options.
With a choice of either a simplified IEC-61131 based ladder editor, or a full IEC-61131 with toolbox of powerful functions, allowing you to easily write and manage projects, configure communication networks, SMS, data logging, I/O and user screens.
-Ladder Logic, ST, SFC, FBD -Auto Tune PID (32 loops) -Floating Point Maths -Serial Port & Modem commands -Real-Time- Clock functions -Program and Subroutine blocks -Alarm / Recipe / Animation / Bitmaps -Multi-Language support and custom fonts
How the i3 Intelligent Controller can work for you?

IMO's i3 controllers offer a unique solution since it is both a PLC and HMI combined in one device. It is also small, very powerful and has many unique connectivity features. One such feature is the GRPS modem option, which is ideal for applications where the controller is somewhere out in the field.
Remote monitoring, control and programming of devices can reduce service visits required and allow first class customer service to provide to end customers. It minimizes downtime, maximises productivity and reduces servicing costs by allowing the possibility of fault diagnosis without visiting site.
Many specialist vehicles contain a variety of high tech equipment and software. These system are often produced by several suppliers, therefore having a variety of different interfaces. The i3 solves this problem by providing the user with a single interface running on a touch screen PC.
Remote monitoring, control and programming have previously had been restrictive due to legacy devices only providing serial communications. Imagine being able to programme these devices from your office miles from their location on the factory floor! In fact the devices could be anywhere in the world.
