SP5000 can store maintenance and a variety of other tools. To perform maintenance, you used to have to bring a PC, open the control panel, look for the controller and connect a cable. Lack of space to even put the computer down meant that you frequently debugged with the PC on your lap. With SP5000, the HMI usually used as a control terminal serves the role of a PC at times to reduce workload during maintenance. You can also combine with the Pro-face Remote HMI to remotely monitor and control applications. To monitor using a tablet, for example, you can start the HMI screen with a PLC program tool.

Mounted with 2 Ethernet ports, SP5000 makes network segmentation simple. Different IP addresses can be configured for each port, enabling safety to be secured before construction of the network system. For example, installing SP5000 between office and factory networks helps utilization of both the big data continuously increasing at the production site as control devices get faster, and the continuously increasing big data on the office side of production control.

The change in the collected data over time is displayed in an easy-to-understand form with a graph. The graph can be traced back to see the past data.

Operation Log - Recording the operator's operation

Operations are saved to a log, so you can see who did what, and when. The log can also be used for a trend analysis of erroneous operation of operators.

Line setting changes can be performed smoothly with "Enhanced Recipe function"

With the conventional recipe function, all recipe data must be stored at continuous addresses.
The new recipe function allows writing random addresses and multiple data formats as a recipe.
*Data at discontinuous addresses or in different formats can be processed all at once.
(* GP-4*01TW and GP-4401WW don't support the sort/ search feature.)

Alarm History Banner Display

This lowers the burden placed on the PLC and enables high-level screen design.

Logic Program - Program with a familiar ladder language

Screens and logic programming can be edited with the same software, so editing between parts and logic elements can be performed via drag and drop. Controller addresses can be directly written, allowing you to reduce development time.
*The online editing function allows you to make program changes on a computer during operation. You can make changes in a program without stopping operation - even while the control function is in operation. This enables work efficiency at startup and during maintenance.

D-Script - Create programs with our unique simplified language

Configure these settings based on trigger conditions including "Continuous Action", "Timer Bit Change", and "Condition Satisfied". Many functions are also provided including search
(search and replace strings in the script) and debug functions (display messages and addresses on the unit).

D-Scripts created with GP-PRO/PBIII can be used unmodified so replacement is a breeze.
