It allows you to store message programs, log messages, operate slave displays, communicate via computer interface, and all other PMD 300MC operating features except that it requires a slave display to view its messages.
The PMD 300MC Series Message Controller is designed to give you fast, accurate information when you need it most. The units give you maximum flexibility with minimum complexity. Because the PMD 300MC Series is so flexible, it is used in a wide-variety of applications. And, since machinery, processes, and electronic equipment vary from application to application, there are numerous ways to enter information into and extract information from your PMD 300MC Series unit.
The PMD 300MC Series products provide information from your controlled process or automated operation. Simple ON/OFF signals from your PLC enable a PMD 300MC to translate current conditions into plain language by selecting a preprogrammed message and transmitting them to the appropriate message display(s). Message information may be sent to an on-line printer, stored in the PMD 300MC Series' data log, and/or sent to and displayed on one or more slave message displays; such as: PMD 180S, PMD 200S, PMD 300S, slave marquee displays, such as the PMD 1100, PMD 1200, PMD 1205, or numeric marquees PMD 1404 and PMD 1406.
