The 4.3-inch G3 Kadet 2 was designed for applications in which available mounting space is at a premium. Though diminutive in size, the G304K2 boasts a bright TFT display with 32K-color support. With a resolution of 480 x 272, the Kadet 2’s 4.3-inch display has a higher resolution and better image clarity than most 6-inch HMIs.
The G304K2 performs the functions of a multiple protocol converter, using two high-speed RS-232/422/485 communications ports and a 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX Ethernet port. The Ethernet port supports up to four protocols simultaneously, allowing dissimilar Ethernet based products to communicate with one another.
The G3 Kadet 2 range of HMIs is programmed with Red Lion’s free Crimson 3 software. Crimson 3 offers easy to use drag and drop communications configuration, while the embedded image library allows the programmer to create intuitive screens and prompts for the operator.
