The Plant Floor Marquee (PFM) Series of multicolor LED displays comes in four sizes and is readable up to 600 ft away. The PFM uses a G3 Series HMI, Data Station Plus, or Modular Controller as a host device to display text and graphics. Free software lets the PFM receive message data from any device on the factory floor, supporting over 170 different protocols and the ability to send and receive data from seven or more devices simultaneously.

Features include the use of vibrant green, yellow, and red LEDs; bar graphs, custom symbols, and other graphics display production trends and goals; data comes from either a single device or customized calculations to display optimized production data from multiple devices; conveys equipment status and alarm conditions for simple troubleshooting; sends text (SMS) messages when alarms are triggered; and an addressable RS-485 port supports multidrop wiring. The displays are available in four sizes, ranging from 26 × 6.6 in. at 80 × 16 resolution to 39.3 × 22.5 in. at 120 × 64 resolution.
