NB Series Features 13

Event monitoring (alarming) is both flexible and easy to use. Not only do you have the possibility to enter bit and word alarms for on/off or on-condition triggering, there is also the possibility to use different fonts and color to indicate varying degrees of status and priorities. Specific alarms are indicated with an audible buzzer sound, as well as by an accompanying text message, and you can even create pop-up alarms for situations where immediate action has to be taken.

Easy data presentation

NB Series Features 14

Graphical representation of real-time and historical data is easy with the NB series. As well as display of time sampling and trending data, you have the option to save sampling data (max. 16 consecutive words) of basic real-time trending data. And you can plot using x/y coordinates, in which case sampling can be done via single or multiple points and with historical data. Furthermore, data can be presented in a variety of ways, such as sampling points using x and y components.

Multiple security options

NB Series Features 15

Protecting your developed project with a password using the NB series is both a simple and secure matter. Among the comprehensive security options is the possibility to define up to 16 minimum security levels on screens, buttons and inputs, and you can set up to 32 specific permission controls for each operator. There is also a register condition (bit/word) control for a check of actual condition against a predefined value, and a standard operator confirmation check to confirm that critical actions have been performed by the operator.

The perfect partner for Omron devices
