The OP 73micro is the price-optimized version of the smallest 70 series panel and tailored to the S7-200 PLC. Compared to the text displays, it offers an even easier operation thanks to its fully graphical 3" display. The OP 73micro requires only little space at the machine; it fits into the same mounting cutout as the OP3 or the TD 200.
Area of application
HMI device for smaller HMI tasks that up to now were solved with text-oriented HMI devices; for the operation with the SIMATIC S7-200 PLC
Compact, space-saving design
MPI and PROFIBUS onboard
Fully graphical display enables the depiction of bitmaps or bars
Optimal readability of texts, multiple text sizes can be configured
Design and functions
The most obvious difference between the OP 73 and the text displays is its 3” graphics display. With it, bitmaps and bars can be depicted as well as Cyrillic and Asian characters. This not only benefits the clarity, export-oriented machine constructors, too, will appreciate the new application possibilities. For this reason, the OP 73 also offers 32 configurable languages; among 5 languages can be switched online. Furthermore, the graphics capability of course also permits the design of operating screens with language-independent icons. The operation itself occurs via 8 system keys and 4 configurable function keys.
A starter package is available for the OP 73micro, which in addition to the device includes the configuration software WinCC flexible Micro, the SIMATIC HMI Manual Collection on DVD and an MPI cable
