These two low cost alphanumeric display modules are with yellow green LED backlight. Both modules are supplied with the 2 feet ribbon cable and plug for immediate connection to a T100MD+ PLC's built-in LCD port. A backlight current limit resistor is also included in the package.
Programming the display is unbelievably easy! All that is needed is to execute the TBASIC command once :
SETLCD r, c,
where r is the row number and c is the column number, followed by a text string which can be any ascii text or numerical values converted into text string using the STR$(n) or HEX$(n) command. This allows the LCDs to display any internal data for intelligent operator interface.
