AutomationDirect CM5 panel

June 6, 2024

AutomationDirect ‘s CM5 HMI series is designed to offer lower cost, high-performance HMIs in sizes from 4 inches to 22 inches. These HMIs have a 1.6 GHz processor in the larger units (10 inches and above), 43 Mbytes of memory, and are designed to provide much better trending, extra data storage, faster communication, and improved file types including jpegs. The CM5 panels come with a host of communication ports for plug-and-play connections with industrial networks. All CM5 panels have serial and Ethernet ports and several supported protocols including Modbus, EtherNet/IP and the lightweight MQTT(S) protocol used in many machine-to-machine (M2M) and IIoT applications. The 10-inch and larger models feature an additional Ethernet port, allowing them to act as a data bridge between two separate networks.
