Succession products of The new TP177B & OP177B touch screens:

The TP177B and OP177B are successor products for the very successful TP170B, OP170B and OP17 HMI panels. The most direct replacement for each device (installation cutout, functional scope, screen type) is shown below:

  • OP17 -> OP177B DP (mono) or OP177B DP/PN (colour)
  • OP170B -> OP177B DP (mono) or OP177B DP/PN (colour)
  • TP170B mono -> TP177B DP (mono)
  • TP170B colour -> TP177B DP/PN (colour)

No AS511 TTY interface is present on the new OP177B and TP177B devices. Therefore if connection is required to S5 PLCs, Profibus DP is the alternative connection still available.

If RS232 connection to 505 or 3rd party controllers is needed, then use of a RS485/RS232 converter is required.
