Features

Stand-alone system operation

Program Macro (a BASIC-like programming language) enables flexible control
s_pmacro.gif(364 byte)

 

feature_system_1.gif(41480 byte)
Program Macro compiler "Macro Soushi" (free)


GU-3000 series modules provide a runtime environment for the "Program Macro" programming language. General-purpose I/O signals can be input, and operations based on that can control the display content and ouput signals. Programs created using the Program Macro compiler, "Macro Soushi" can be loaded into the GU-3000 unit, which can then operate as a stand-alone host controller.

 


GPIO ports for controlling external devices such as switches or PLC.
h_io.gif(297 byte)

feature_system_2.gif(12099 byte)
Connect to switches or PLC I/O

General-purpose I/O ports are useful for controlling switches, sensors, sequencers (PLC), or lights, etc. PLC signal could be used to change the VFD module display. VFD module could output a signal to activate a rotating light.

 

 


Macro function, for automatically repeating a registered command sequence
h_io.gif(297 byte)

feature_soft_4.gif(6512 byte)
Repeat until external command received

A sequence of commands, stored inside the module, can be run continuously. For example, cursor set command and character codes can be stored as Macro data. On sending the Start Macro command, the characters can be continuously displayed. Useful for start-up display, idle display, or demonstration display sequences.

 

Easily adaptable for various applications

Wide range of sizes, from compact to long message displays
VFD(蛍光表示管)採用  

VFD Module
Long models available, over 500mm

All models features a bright, easy-to-see vacuum fluorescent display (VFD). Compact models 100mm or less, long message display models, and LED backlight models are available - a wide range of sizes and functions to suit various display applications.

GUF39
Font registration software “GUF39” (free)

Images such as icons, etc, and fonts etc, can be pre-stored (registered) in FROM. The image can be quickly displayed with a short command, reducing the load on the host. Font data in BMP format can be easily registered using the "GUF39" software. Up to 224 characters can be defined for original design fonts, foreign characters, or icons, etc.

 

Improved EMI,ESD characteristics, strong noise resistance

feature_youto_4.gif(3605 byte)

EMI and ESD characteristics improved over previous VFD modules. Useful for harsher noise environments or applications.

 

 


Wide operating-temperature range, -40 ~ 85℃
Wide operating-temperature range

Wide operating-temperature range

LCD, due to it's structure, is affected by temperature, but VFD is resistant to temperature effects, providing a clear, stable display in low or high temperatures.

Visibility and reliability below freezing is particularly valued, with various products being used in extremely cold environments nearing -40℃, for applications such as operating panels for commercial freezers.

 

Other features (hardware)

Power-saving function

feature_hard_1.gif(4590 byte)

If no data is received after a set time, VFD display power can be automatically turned off (display power auto on/off function). This can greatly reduce power consumption when display is not necessary, and also prolongs service life.

 

 


DMA Mode for high-speed animation display

feature_hard_2.gif(5401 byte)
High-speed animation possible by
immediately displaying received data

Using 8-bit parallel connection, received image data can be directly displayed. This enables real-time animation display synchronous with data transfer.

 

 


Packet Mode - Simultaneously control up to 16 connected units

feature_hard_3.gif(3584 byte)
Splitter board (sold separately)
for connecting up to 16 units

Cascaded connection, of up to 16 units, with individual control in packet mode, is also supported. Refer to specification for details.

 

 


LED back-light displays also available

feature_hard_4.jpg(43854 byte)
Color makes status instantly recognizable

LED back-light displays also available. RGB 16-level brightness adjustable (4096 colors). Useful for enhancing display in game machines, or displaying warning or status in industrial equipment.

 

Other features (software)

Simple ASCII-based command control

feature_soft_1.gif(2793 byte)
feature_soft_2.gif(3531 byte)
Display characters or images
by just sending the command

Just power-on and send commands to immediately display text or images.

feature_soft_3.gif(56383 byte)
1. Sampling window
2. Measurement window
3. Temperature window
4. Concentration window

For measuring equipment or audio level meters, etc, display of multiple parameters can be easily controlled.

Up to four "User windows" can be arbitrarily set. The underlying screen area is the (default) "Base window". Each window has it's own home position. Text display, including scrolling, operates within the window.
