Version 3.0 incorporates a new "CANopen" return that is claimed to increase the possibilities of visualising the information from a PLC.

Text format information is shown in 4×20 characters, with or without LEDs, or in 2×10 characters with leds, the company said.

The new display is also claimed to offer the possibility of presenting information graphically, by using different icons that can be chosen from an image galley, in four different formats: 1, 2 or 4 icons on display at the same time.

"An important increment in the potential visualisation formats and the degree of customisation and user-friendliness of the information shown that will be available for the whole range of I-Kontrol remote controls," the company added.
