Compact 4.3” HG1G delivers a technologically-advanced display with industry-leading brightness, lifespan and functionality

4.3" HG1G Series

Intelligently Designed

New HG1G HMIs use the worldwide-standard 4.3” LCD screen size, first popularized by gamers, to deliver a technologically-advanced display with high reliability and performance at an amazing price. This super-bright, compact 4.3” TFT LCD has a high resolution of 480 x 272 pixels and displays 65K colors with a brightness of 800cd/m2.

With features and functionalities typical of a large screen, including remote monitoring and control function and FTP function, HG1G supports multiple communications – up to four protocols simultaneously and has a best-in-class LED backlight of 70,000 hours. Able to be mounted portrait or landscape to fit your needs, it also supports a wide range of operating temperatures from -20 to 55 ºC, and is rated IP66F/IP67F, Type 4X and Type 13. HG1G units are suitable for installation in Class 1, Div 2 hazardous locations and have UL 508 approval. Most of the features of a large screen, but small enough to fit in a tight space and priced to fit a tight budget!

A 65,536-color TFT LCD display offers a high resolution of 480 x 272 pixels.

A super-bright LCD display provides a brightness of 800cd/m2.

An LED backlight life of over 70,000 hours provides many years of operation, extended by the fact the backlight can be automatically switched off when the HMI is not in use. The screen will respond instantly after power up.

This compact HMI supports a wide range of operating temperatures from -20 to 55 degrees C, making it suitable for cold or hot environments.


10/100 Base-T compliant. Users can upload, download or monitor project data with HG1G, and at the same time remotely monitor and control the HMI via a web browser. It supports Modbus TCP/IP protocol as well.

With a USB flash drive, now users can upload and download an HMI program as well as a PLC program (only if using an IDEC PLC). This also allows users to log data and store screen captures.

  • Host Communication to a PLC/Device in a 1:1 or 1:N PLC communication
  • Sub-Host Communication to an IDEC PLC or Modbus RTU Master device
  • OI Link Communication – network to a single PLC with multiple touchscreens, where 1 is a Master and up to 15 slaves can be connected
  • User Communication – use transmit/receive instructions to build your own protocol

It can be mounted with the screen orientation set to portrait or landscape mode depending on space requirements.

Enhanced Features and Functionality

Flexible Connectivity

Designed to meet all your communication requirements, the compact 4.3” HG1G series supports numerous protocols—up to four PLC protocols simultaneously. Using one HMI to communicate with different brands (or manufacturers) of PLCs in a system saves time and money. The HG1G acts as a communication gateway between multiple devices allowing data to easily pass between devices. IDEC supports over 100 Serial and Networking drivers, including Modbus RTU Master/Slave and Modbus TCP/IP.

Remote Access Monitoring and Control

Web Server Function: With this function, you can remotely control and monitor your IDEC HG1G at anytime, anywhere using a PC, PDA or smartphone. No additional software tools or modules are needed to use the Remote Monitor and Control function.

FTP Communication

Support for industry-standard FTP communications allows users to transfer project, Data Log, picture, sound and movie files between the HG1G HMI and a PC without having to load the IDEC HMI programming software on the PC. If an IDEC PLC is being used with the HMI, this feature can also be used to download an updated PLC program from a PC to the PLC through the HMI. This greatly simplifies HMI and PLC program updates as it’s no longer necessary to have the IDEC programming software installed on multiple PCs throughout a facility or a company.

Excellent Environmental Resistance

The HG1G 4.3” screen comes with new approval ratings, including the addition of UL 508, IP66F/IP67F ratings, and Type 4X and Type 13 approvals (on the front panel) to allow for installation outdoors or indoors in wash-down areas. This makes the HG1G unit suitable for installation in Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations and for applications in harsher environmental conditions.

WindO/I-NV4 software

WindO/I-NV4 software

WindO/I-NV4 software WindO/I-NV4 software is the simplest programming tool for all IDEC OI Touchscreens Series from 4.3” to 12.1” except the HG1F 4.6”. The WindOI-NV4 software has the same look and feel as the WindOI NV2 with all the great features, such as support of multiple protocols, FTP and Email functions. It is used to create projects that can display information from a PLC, process status, or can be used to input data with virtual switches or keypads to make changes to a process. The objects are extremely easy to configure with the help of step-by-step navigation. It lets you quickly create colorful graphical screens in no time using drop-down menus and intuitive drag and drop functionality for the objects. A workspace is available to help you organize and manage projects, objects and screens.

Highlights

Built-in Serial and Networking Protocols, this will allow IDEC Touchscreens to locally or remotely communicate with IDEC or other major brand PLC manufacturers. IDEC Touchscreen’s communications capabilities expand well beyond IDEC brand PLCs. Over 100 major PLC protocols are supported: Allen Bradley, Mitsubishi, Omron, Automation Direct (Koyo), Keyence, GE, Modicon, Siemens, Sharp, and many more.

Built-in library of over 5,000 symbols
