Web panels for extreme conditions

May 2013 Industrial Computer Hardware

Phoenix Contact has added several new outdoor web panels to its HMI product range. The panels feature front surfaces protected against dust and splash water (protection class IP67) and an anti-glare display that can be read in full sunlight. Suitable for a temperature range of -20 to 70°C, they can be used in the most challenging environments. Intended areas of use include solar power generation, electric vehicles and agriculture.

The WP 06T/XC web panel has a 145 mm display with a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, while the WP 07T/XC has a 180 mm display and a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Thanks to their optical bonding design, the displays are sturdy and feature a highly reliable and rugged glass-film-glass (GFG) touch display. Users can interact with this using fingers, gloves, pens, or tools, without causing damage. Built-in UV and IR filters ensure a long product lifespan even under extreme conditions.

Operation energy efficient thanks to the built-in ARM9 pro­cessor and switchable LED backlighting. The panels are equipped with one Ethernet and two USB interfaces and ship with Windows CE 5.0 as their operating system. This ensures software compatibility with all standard Phoenix Contact web panels.
