Turck Banner's new TXF700 series offers an ultra-robust HMI series with complete all-round protection to IP67 for use at temperatures between -20°C and 55°C. With its high degree of protection, the modern HMI platform allows for flexible and slim mounting since, unlike previous solutions, it no longer requires installation in protective housings or control cabinets.
The brilliant TFT displays are protected by a glass front and feature a capacitive touchscreen that supports multi-touch capability and gesture control. This now allows the latest operating concepts from the world of smartphones and tablets to be brought to the rugged environments of industrial automation. The devices can be used wherever no particular Ex protection or hygiene requirements apply, particularly in machine and system building, the packaging industry, as well as in the intralogistics, mobile equipment and automobile sectors.
The TXF700 can not only be used for visualisation, but can be used if required with TX VisuPro as an IIoT gateway or edge controller. Besides the conventional HMI protocols for connecting to controllers, such as Siemens, Beckhoff and Rockwell Automation, TX VisuPro also supports MQTT or OPC-UA as server and client. The HMIs can communicate simultaneously with up to eight protocols. This gateway function therefore also enables data to be exchanged between different controllers or terminal devices.
