This HMI is smaller than a CD case
26 May 2010
Lenze has extended its range of Windows CE based HMIs with a miniature model that has a front panel size significantly smaller than a CD case. The new EL103 has dimensions of only 130 x 104 x 34mm yet it is a full colour touchscreen TFT display with 320 x 240 pixel resolution. Options include a Soft-PLC that creates a truly economic control solution. The EL103, part of a range of HMIs that extends to 10.4in, is suitable for applications where visualisation and operation is needed directly at the operator station. It can replace larger text displays as well as simple graphics displays.
The performance and specification of the EL103 is not limited by the small size. The bright 3.5in colour display is LED backlit. Interfaces are Ethernet, USB and CAN, and there is a SD card slot for memory expansion and easy archiving of data. The energy efficient XScale processor requires neither fans nor batteries and only uses 5W of power. The front face of the EL103 has an enclosure rating of IP65.
The optional Soft-PLC, which comes with free software, includes a maintenance-free UPS for storing residual PLC data.
Free VisiWinNE visualisation from Lenze is optimised for use on the EL103. Following selection of the device in a menu, the user can choose the required device driver in the VisiWinNET project wizard and then set the corresponding parameters.
