Hazardous area LOIs with sunlight-viewable touch screens

As a first in the basic series of explosion-protected compact operator interfaces, this company is launching new panels for machine-oriented visualization featuring a sunlight-viewable touchscreen (photo). Even when installed outdoors and in bright daylight, the full-color 7-in. displays with widescreen format (800 x 480 pixels) remain easily readable throughout, thanks to an anti-glare coating that effectively reduces light reflections. Series 200 HMIs also offer a high degree of compatibility with the predecessor Falcon series (ET-/MT-65, ET-75 and ET-125), which makes a gradual changeover from the monochrome screens to the high-contrast color displays with touch capability much easier. As a standard, the new HMIs are fitted with the Windows Embedded Compact operating system, but are also available on request with an open OS to integrate proprietary software. They are highly flexible with their driver support for QNX, Linux and other systems. Connectivity to almost all major automation systems is also ensured. — R.
