Next-generation flat panel uses Ethernet connectivity for greater flexibility
29 May 2015
Siemens has incorporated an Ethernet connection in its industrial flat panel monitors to provide manufacturers with more flexible display options.
The monitors can now transmit USB and video signals over long distances without requiring a KVM. Unlike traditional technology, the Ethernet interface enables the use of monitor screens as far away from the PC as needed.
Connection via Ethernet instead of via graphics interfaces also brings greater flexibility in the development and introduction of decentralised operating concepts. In this case, up to four monitors can be connected to a single PC. Time savings can also be achieved thanks to reduced effort in terms of the cabling required.
The monitors are built with impact-resistant glass in either 19in or 22in, and feature Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT) technology which supports multi-touch and gestures. This allows the unit to be operated even through work gloves.
