All-new industrial thin client for virtualized HMI systems

| By Chemical Engineering

Pepperl+fuchsThe BTC01 is a new standalone industrial-box thin client that is ideal for modular virtualized human-machine-interface (HMI) systems. It comes preloaded with this company’s new proprietary operating system, RM Shell 4.0. The BTC01 features enhanced security, a new user interface that simplifies integration and auto-connect and connection-loss features. The fully customizable unit can simultaneously run up to four systems, and it restricts operators to predefined web addresses. Shock and vibration resistant, the BTC01 is built on an aluminium chassis with a fanless design. All internal moving parts are eliminated, and the unit can operate safely at temperatures between –20 and 60C. — Pepperl+Fuchs North America, Twinsburg, Ohio
