FEATURES - Network
Web Machine Interface
- VPN Remote Access / Cloud Data Utilization Solution
The Web Machine Interface is a solution service that makes remote monitoring safe, easy, and inexpensive.
It consists of two services: “VPN Remote Access Service” which enables secure remote monitoring by VPN and “Cloud Data Utilization Service” which
can receive various types of data via a cloud server. By performing remote maintenance, it is possible to check for signs of abnormality in advance and
ensure proper maintenance of the machine. It also helps to reduce the number of sudden stoppages and implements preventive maintenance.
Creates remote connectivity inexpensively
If you have an Internet connection, you can build a VPN environment only by the V9 series without using a VPN router.
Provides highly secure remote access
SSL-VPN enables you to securely connect to remote locations without worrying about eavesdropping or tampering.
Makes it easy to access peripheral devices remotely
The built-in routing function allows easy remote access to PLC and various devices connected to the V9 series by Ethernet.

FTP Server Function: Files in a storage media inserted in a V9 can be read out and written using a PC.
FTP Client Function: Files on an FTP server can be read and written using the V9 series.
- Control the PC Screen from the V9 series
By connecting to Ethernet, you can display the screen of the PC directly on the V9 series. You can view work instructions and manuals located on PCs even at manufacturing sites that do not allow you to carry in PCs. It improves the efficiency of maintenance.
Network Printer Compatible *
- Share Printers with Multiple V9 series
Printing jobs from multiple V9 series can be shared via a single network printer. Network printer connection supports both wired and wireless LAN, and that helps to achieve space and cable savings.
* Compatible only with EPSON ESC/P-R. Wireless LAN connection is possible for wireless LAN compatible products.
- Remote Connection from Tablet PCs
All of the V9 family has remote monitoring/maintenance capabilities via Ethernet, thanks to its VNC feature.
- Direct communication with your tablet PC
Wireless LAN models have built-in access point so that you can establish connection with wireless LAN devices without setting up extra access points.
DHCP Server * / DHCP Client
- Easy Communication with DHCP
The information required for network connectivity can be acquired from a server as a DHCP client or can assign to a client as a DHCP server.
* The DHCP server is only available for wireless LAN-compatible products.
- Connection and Data Transmission with Multiple Devices
You can connect up to eight different models, off-brand PLC and other peripheral devices at the same time via both Ethernet and serial connection.
Supports EtherCAT Connections
- EtherCAT (Slave) Connections
The “CUR-09” communication unit for EtherCAT connection allows for general connection to EtherCAT compatible models. It can also serve as a gateway between devices connected to the V9 series and the EtherCAT master equipment.
TELLUS and V-Server
- Remote Monitoring and Operation Solutions
This application software connects remotely located V9 series to office computers in order to provide on-site information and to monitor and control equipments.
You can allocate jobs based on the operation conditions of the line, respond quickly to trouble, and achieve more efficient and cost-effective production.
Real-time collection of on-site information.
• Data can be collected in real time by capturing site status and production information.
• It can be linked with databases such as SQL Server. Or save data in CSV or Excel format.
• It supports operations suited to the site via various operation directives based on event monitoring.
Easy, low-cost monitoring and operation from remote locations.
• You can use the same screen data as the on-site V9 series, eliminating the need to create a new remote monitoring screen.
• Multiple startups allow you to monitor and operate more than one V9 series via a single PC.
Use V9 series features directly on your PC
• Display and operation can be performed on your PC instead of on the V9 series.
• It enables you to easily connect to peripheral devices such as printers. There is no need to worry about selecting peripheral devices.
FEATURES - Usability & Graphics
Expression and Beauty
- Compatible with Vertical Placement
The screen can also be displayed and edited while the panel is placed vertically (by left or right turning).
- Video/RGB Input-Output
By attaching an optional unit, videos and RGB images can be displayed on the V9. Also, images displayed on the V9 can be sent to external displays.* For displaying pictures, 3D parts, video, and RGB input (excluding high-speed mode) only. Other parts are displayed in 65,536 colors.
- Extended Datasheets
It also supports PDF output in addition to standard printer output. By converting various forms such as daily reports to PDF, the printer is no longer needed. It helps to achieve paper and space savings.
