The G308A210 model is equipped with an 8.4” TFT Display and can only be used in indoor applications. This model has a CompactFlash socket which helps increase the memory capacity of this operator interface. The CompactFlash card will hold a variety of data and all of the data can be accessed through the USB device port, but a driver should be installed to ensure proper operation. The CompactFlash on this model can also program one of the G3 Series HMIs by placing the chosen firmware and files on the CompactFlash card.
During the operation of the G308A210 interface if the battery fails it can be replaced. To do so power must be completely removed from the unit as well as the cabling, and the back cover of the unit. The back cover will be removed after the screws are removed, to remove the back cover life the top side and provide clearance for the connectors which are on the bottom side of the PCB. Carefully remove the old battery and replace it with the new battery. Once power, all cabling, and the back cover have been reapplied use the Crimson software to input the correct date and time.
A special feature of this model is its ability to have an option card attached. Before installing the option card on the G308A210 ensure that all power needed to work the unit is completely disbanded, the rear cover on this model should have also been removed. Connect the attached cable on the option card to the connector on the primary board use the screws to properly mount the option card and then replace the rear cover.
