Fast, fanless and flexible HMI with multi-touch
Taking advantage of state-of-the-art processors, the new Panel PC 900 with multi-touch functionality, from B&R Industrial Automation, promises a high level of computing power and is backwards compatible with the previous device generation.
The Panel PC 900 uses projected capacitive touch screen technology which is also used in the company’s Automation Panel widescreen display series. With an edge-to-edge, anti-glare glass surface and high-resolution monitors, maximum functionality and an advanced design have been integrated into a single operator panel.
Thee multi-touch displays allow new user interactions, such as zooming with two fingers or quickly paging forward with swipe gestures. In addition, two-hand gestures for critical or potentially dangerous operations can offer an effective way of preventing unintentional operator errors.
Systems in the Panel PC 900 series are available as widescreen displays in addition to the traditional 4:3 format and are equipped with an analogue resistive touch-screen. Many of the Panel PC 900 variants can also be operated without fans.
