Reading Time: 3 minutes

Hey there Contractors and fellow Service Professionals!

Today we are covering the last item of the PLC series, the Allen Bradley 2711P-RDT10C Series B PLC. This is a 10.4 inch display module with touchscreen and 18-bit color graphics.

Allen Bradley 2711P-RDT10C Standard Processor Module

This standard display module is a replacement part for PanelView Plus graphics terminal. It is a Human Machine Interface (HMI) that lets users control, monitor, or display information graphically. 2711P-RDT10C is compatible with PanelView Plus, PanelView Plus 6, and PanelView Plus CE AC or DC-powered logic modules that can be installed on the back of this unit. The 2711P-RDT10C is designed for use in an indoor environment.

2711P-RDT10C 10.4 in Display – Touchscreen

This touch screen display is analog resistive. The features and firmware provides easy migration to a larger display and field-replaceable bezels are also available. The touch screen may be operated with a finger, gloved finger, or plastic stylus device with a minimum tip radius of 0.051 in (1.3 mm) to prevent damage to the screen. Using any other object or tool may damage the touch screen.

Module Components

2711P-RDT10C Series B Display Module – Modular Components

The terminals use modular components allowing for flexible configuration, installation, and upgrades. You can order items as separate components or factory assembled per your configuration.

1000 Display Module Terminal Base-Configured Unit

The base-configured unit of the terminal consist of the display module (in our case, 2711P-RDT10C) and logic module. The logic module is available with or without internal CompactFlash. The contents of the internal CompactFlash is what differentiates a PanelView Plus device from a PanelView Plus CE device. The internal CompactFlash is available in different sizes and can be ordered separately or bundled with the logic module.

          Allen Bradley 2711P-RDT10C – Communication Module

You can attach a communication module with a network interface to the base-configured unit of the terminal to increase your communication capability with these networks: DH+/DH-485 & ControlNet. The communication module installs easily on top of the logic module on the back of the unit.
