About 2711-B5A5

The 2711-B5A5 terminal is an obsolete Allen-Bradley PanelView 550 terminal, that allows the users to interface with a machine. Its monochrome display screen is an LCD with blue graphics and it is 5.5 inches long. This HMI (Human-Machine Interface) utilizes the Panelbuilder 32 Software for its applications. Additionally, this HMI has an RS-232 (DH-485) port for communication purposes, although it does not contain a printer port. To connect the module to a network through this unit’s RS-232 communication port, one or more 2711-NC13 communication cables are required. The 2711-B5A5 module is a combination of a keypad input type and a touchscreen input type of terminal because it comes with both a keypad and a touchscreen that provide the users with greater input capacities. Its LED backlight has approximately 100,000 hours of life and it can be replaced with the Allen-Bradley 2711-NL1 backlight, and the resolution of the screen is around 256 x 128.

The 2711-B5A5 requires an input voltage of 120 Volts of AC power at 47 to 63 Hertz. Its memory consists of 170 kilobytes of RAM application runtime memory, in addition to 240 kilobytes of available non-volatile memory. This module contains a real-time clock that will timestamp all important data and it is battery backed, allowing the users to replace the batteries when necessary. This module also supports an ATA memory card. The 2711-B5A5 has a shipping weight between 3 and 6 pounds, its dimensions are approximately 14 x 11 x 8 inches, and it is commonly used with the series A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H, and with firmware that includes revisions 1.00 through 4.48. The 2711-B5A5 has an operating temperature range of around 32 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit, and it should not be stored at a temperature outside a range of -4 to 158 degrees Fahrenheit. This 550 PanelView terminal dissipates around 20 Watts (or 69 BTU/hour) of heat and it has a relative humidity around 5 to 95% at up to 30 degrees Celsius. Do not mount this unit at an altitude higher than 200 meters. It can be enclosed with a NEMA Type 12, 13, 4x, IEC IP54, or IP65 type of enclosure.
