Schneider Electric has introduced Magelis GTU, the latest innovation in the Magelis range of HMI solutions, to the southern African market.

“Magelis GTU allows users to create the perfect HMI for their application by simply snapping together the panel box and display of their choice,” says Quintin McCutcheon, marketing and operations manager for Schneider Electric’s industry business in southern Africa.

Optimised for the latest HMI configuration software from Schneider Electric, Vijeo XD, Magelis GTU is as easy and comfortable to use as a smartphone or tablet, with intuitive navigation and many connectivity options, including remote access.

Magelis GTU is easy to integrate with system architecture, thanks to an unmatched variety of embedded interfaces: dual Ethernet Gigabit port for network connectivity, dual serial and one optional fieldbus interface for easy communication with industrial devices, and up to four USB ports for connecting peripherals while minimising wiring.

“Magelis GTU offers unmatched ease and comfort of use for both the application developer and the operator. Thanks to industrial multi-touch, users can zoom in/out, swipe, and scroll through intuitive menus, while wearing protective gloves or through a protective screen cover,” highlights McCutcheon.

The high-resolution, 16-million colour screen delivers a crystal-clear view of the same key functions and tools as a PC, including Office viewer, Adobe viewer, Internet Explorer, multimedia player and more. Magelis GTU applications can also be accessed through a second display via the DVI interface and managed remotely through the Vijeo Design’Air app for mobile devices.

The modular design of Magelis GTU enables full optimisation of parts inventory. Maintenance is reduced to the minimum thanks to the robust aluminium housing and wide range of power supply (12-24 VDC) and temperature (0-60°C). Display size and type can be changed or replaced without any special tools while protecting all system and user data with removable memory units. The application is automatically resized to fit the new display. A front USB port with IP66/67 protection, means that HMI data can be accessed and copied conveniently at any moment without opening the cabinet door.
