The TFT touch display of the new panels in modern widescreen format with a resolution of 1024 x 600 WSVGA paves the way for comprehensive operating and visualisation options. Added to this is superior display quality with 16.7 million available colours on the 10.1-inch diagonal screen. The latest additions to the entry-level class include two fanless Panel PCs and a purely passive Control Panel, permitting the cost-effective implementation of control and visualisation tasks for small and medium-sized machines, production systems and buildings:
Equipped with a robust metal housing consisting of an aluminium front bezel and a steel sheet cover at the rear, the devices offer significantly higher quality and durability than the plastic panels typically offered in the low-cost, entry-level segment. In addition, the high-quality materials and rounded front bezel lend a modern and appealing look to the panels, which can be used in the most diverse production and building environments at operating temperatures from 0 to 55 °C.
