PWS6500

Operating Guide Introduction

PWS6500 is a Human Machine Interface (HMI) with a 4.7" STN LCD of a high resolution (240×128) and is IP65/NEMA4 proof with water and dust-resistant. The PWS6600/AP1600 is CE marked and meets your need to be highly transientresistant while it is in operation. Also, its compact design makes connections with other machinery more flexible, thus achieving the optimal performance of your machines. The latest released ADP Version 6.0 and above is used to design applications of the PWS6500; it is reliable, user-friendly and compatible with many models.

Self-test

Once the PWS6500 is turned on, it will automatically execute a self-test to check its hardware. The result of a self-test is displayed on the LCD. See below. The items to check in a self-test:
