Information can be provided from the computer over Ethernet or serial interface. They can also directly measure and display analog or digital values (e.g. temperature, humidity, counting products, production speed).
Communication protocol is open and well described.

Frequently used for measuring and displaying:
- production speed
- number of products
- weight on scales
Can measure analog or digital values or can accept data over communication channels from measuring devices, computer network, PLCs.
Communication protocol is simple and well described.
