C-more Touch Panel Programming Software

The C-more Programming Software (EA-PGMSW) is a user-friendly, Windows-based graphical editor for configuring all C-more operator interface touch panels. The configuration software provides a powerful set of tools for developing applications and makes touchscreen panel setup and programming quick and simple. The C-more software package offers a complete set of control panel objects including pushbuttons, selector switches, pilot lights, text and numeric data displays, bar graph displays, static and dynamic bit-mapped images, and more. Despite all of its features, the C-more programming package is very easy to understand and to use. The simple operation of this software allows users to quickly develop operational HMI screens for the C-more panels.

C-more Online Help is included in the programming software provides as much information as possible about the C-more HMI Software. C-more Online Help eliminates the need for a printed manual by offering a help file that covers, in as much detail as possible, all major areas of the software. In addition, this Online Help includes other information on the C-more panels and has cross references for replacement and upgrades of other panels.

Optimate Text Panel Configuration Software

All of the OptiMate text panels (including the OP-9001 communication master) are configured using the OptiMate OP-WINEDIT configuration software. The OP-WINEDIT software is compatible with computers running Windows 95/ 98/ 2000/ NT.

Simply load the software onto your personal computer. The simple setup instructions are described in the supplied manual and in the built-in HELP screens. The software allows setup of your complete panel applications, including the type of PLC being used, communications protocol, type of panel (or panels) being used, and in some cases, the format of the message text for the LCD display. Some panels even include the ability to design a menu tree. The setup steps are similar for all OptiMate panels. Use cable OP-CCBL to connect a PC to OP400 series panels, or OP-ACBL-1 to connect to OP600 or OP1000 series panels.

NOTE: When using the OptiMate 600 series panels (except for the OP-640), OP-WINEDIT software version 2.0 or higher is required. When using the OptiMate 400 series panels or the OP-640, version 2.3 or higher is required.
