The iKAN series is a family of industrial Modbus LED display devices that deliver industrial-grade anti-noise capabilities as well as reliability and stability. ASCII characters and Unicode characters, which can be used to display multiple languages, are supported for presenting formatted messages. Support for the popular Modbus industrial protocol is provided meaning that iKAN display devices can be easily integrated into existing PLC and SCADA environments. The iKAN series allows data written from a PC or a PLC to be displayed in a formatted message in real-time. Seven colors are available for the text, which can be used to indicate different degrees of importance of the message, as well as significantly increase the readability of the message in an industrial arena.
Messages can be edited using a standard web browser, such as Google Chrome, Firefox, or IE, etc., on a PC, mobile device, or smartphone without any limitations related to specific control tools or programs. The display of individual messages can also be remotely enabled or disabled as necessary using the same standard web browser. Each model in the iKAN series provides storage space for up to 64 common messages and 10 instant messages. In addition, 168 user-defined variables allow data on a PC, PLC or other controller to be automatically integrated into a message and then displayed. With an open user interface and the ability to display real-time data, the iKAN series of display devices can be installed in a variety of indoor spaces, including shopping malls, railway stations, and industrial areas.
