How to Install Omron Nb Gadget Serial V24 Driver for Your HMI
If you are using an Omron NB series HMI, you may need to install a USB driver on your PC to communicate with the device. The USB driver is a software that allows your PC to recognize the HMI as a serial port. This way, you can transfer projects, update firmware, or monitor data using the NB-Designer software.
In this article, we will show you how to install the Omron Nb Gadget Serial V24 Driver for your HMI in a few simple steps.
Step 1: Download the USB driver
The USB driver is included in the NB-Designer software package, which is free of charge and can be downloaded from the Omron website[^1^]. You can also find the link in the description below.
Once you have downloaded the NB-Designer software, run the setup file and follow the instructions to install it on your PC. You will need to restart your PC after the installation is complete.
Step 2: Connect your HMI to your PC
Make sure your HMI is powered on and connected to your PC via a USB cable. You can use any USB port on your PC, but it is recommended to use a USB 2.0 port for better performance.
When you connect your HMI for the first time, your PC may not recognize it automatically. You will need to manually install the USB driver in the next step.
Step 3: Install the USB driver
To install the USB driver, open the Device Manager on your PC. You can do this by right-clicking on the Start menu and selecting Device Manager, or by typing "device manager" in the search box and hitting Enter.
In the Device Manager window, you should see a device named "NB Gadget Serial V24" under Other devices or Ports (COM & LPT). This is your HMI. Right-click on it and select Update driver.
In the next window, select Browse my computer for driver software. Then click on Browse and navigate to the folder where you installed the NB-Designer software. By default, it should be C:\Program Files (x86)\OMRON\NB-Designer\USB Driver. Select this folder and click OK.
Click Next and wait for the installation to finish. You should see a message saying "Windows has successfully updated your driver software". Click Close and exit the Device Manager.
Step 4: Verify the installation
To verify that the USB driver is installed correctly, open the NB-Designer software on your PC. Click on Tools and select Transfer Settings.
In the Transfer Settings window, select USB as the communication method. Then click on Search and select your HMI from the list of devices. Click OK and close the window.
You can now download or transfer projects to your HMI using the NB-Designer software. You can also update firmware or monitor data using the same software.
