SMARTcontrol Touch Panels
The SMARTcontrol products in IP68/IP69K housing are developed for use in the harshest of environments. These solutions are used all over the world with our SMARTcontrol systems, for example in food technology, chemical industries, seafaring (maritime applications), security and defense as well as inagricultural technology.
The premium stainless steel and glass fronts not only look great, but are also resistant to mud and debris, strong forces, aggressive cleaning agents and pressure cleaner jets (up to 1740 psi). Our touch panels are based on projected capacitive touchscreens.
Our SMARTcontrol Touch series control panels are based on a standard PC architecture and are therefore open to a variety of software. The sophisticated integrated cooling design manages without cooling fans and ventilation slots. The control panels are suitable for operation within a temperature range between 0 and 50 °C. We use solid state disks (SSD) for mass storage. The projected capacitive touch sensor is located behind 5 mm robust laminated safety glass and thus is completely protected from any external influences.
Our control panels feature a USB 2.0 and an Ethernet (10/100/1000) interface to integrate your applications. By default the control panels are supplied by 24 V +/- 25%, other supply voltages are possible by request.
Due to the flexibility of our manufacturing, we are in a position to take individual customer requests into account. From printed glass coverings and specific computer configurations to individually designed user interfaces – we can fulfill your requests. Talk to us! Cost-effective, innovative, and reliable
Isn't that all in contradiction with the costs?
No, because your individual solution is based on the SMARTcontrol system kit and therefore combines individuality, quality, and cost-effectiveness: all criteria for success.
The SMARTcontrol kit consists of innovative hardware and software modules for the area of measuring, control, and regulation technology. We have been using these elements for years and, with these, are able to offer cost-effective, reliable solutions, even for small and mid-sized quantities.
Our SMARTcontrol Touch Panels run Windows Embedded and are therefore a perfect fit for industrial applications. Of course you can run other Microsoft Windows operating systems as well as any Linux distribution. After a power outagethe system will reboot without any errors once the power supply is restored. On top of that it is possible for you to develop your control applications with CODESYS according to IEC 61131-3 standard or SIEMENS SPS.
The glass front of the touch panel is made of premium 5 mm laminated safety glass. In case of a forceful impact there will be no splinters to contaminate your product. In combination with the casing made of stainless steel it is possible for you to clean your industrial systems with aggressive cleaning agents and pressure cleaner jets. Thus the touch panel is protected according to IP69K on the front side against water intruding from the front even at high pressure up to 1740 psi). On the backside the touch panel is protected against jet water from all directions according to IP65. In addition to that complete protection against contact and ingress of dust is provided at all sides of the touch panel.
We were the first manufacturer to produce industrial panels implementing projected capacitive touch technology (PCT). Today PCT touch panels are state of the art and are characterized by a great resistance. Because the touch sensor is placed behind 5 mm robust laminated safety glass it is possible for our touch panels to be operated by sharp objects such as chain gloves. In contrast to that, resistive touchscreens have the touch sensor placed before the glass which results in the sensor to be vulnerable. If they were operated by chain gloves a damage of the sensor in no time would be inevitable. With our PCT technology it doesn't matter whether you wear gloves or not when operating the panel: Highly precise handling is always guaranteed.
Our TFT screen excels with brightness levels up to 500 cd/m² and thus can be used even in bright surroundings. Another advantage of the LED backlight is its outstanding life time. With a 160° viewing angle (H/V) and a very high contrast ratio of 700:1 good readability is ensured also under difficult circumstances.
The operating system and applications of your choice are stored on a solid state disk (SSD) with no rotating parts. For you, this means high performance and high data security. The cooling of the SMARTcontrol products is passive so there are no rotating parts whatsoever. Therefore our SMARTcontrol products are protected against shocks and vibrations in the best possible way which means high reliability for your industrial systems.
