Compact Machine Controller

June 3, 2004
TwidoPack is a combination Twido nanocontroller and Magelis XBT-N text-based HMI display that targets applications in small machines.


New TwidoSoft V2.0 software adds data capacity, improved process control with up to 14 configurable PID loops, and built-in USB port and modem communications management for remote monitoring. The ultracompact nanocontroller can manage more than 1,000 I/O points by virtue of a new master module. The Magelis XBT-N is rated both NEMA 4X for outdoor use and UL Class 1, Div. 2 for hazardous locations. It is just 78-mm deep because it does not need a separate power supply. The display also incorporates diagnostics and distributed communications capabilities.
