Programmable graphic touch panels: smart applications at your fingertips
20 February 2013
crouzet has extended its range of programmable touch panels. Featuring a robust design, in compact sizes and with superb brightness, high resolution, enhanced connectivity and powerful, intuitive programming, their many features can help save time, help manage data more efficiently and are more user-friendly.
Crouzet’s new Millenium MTP6/50, MTP8/50 and MTP8/70 Touch Panels, consisting of a 65536-colour LCD touch screen, display all the text, data, graphics and animations that user’s applications require. Using trend charts, it is now possible, in real time and in situ, to analyse data relating to the machine connected to the panel (log, tracking, fault detection, etc).
Equipped with a 400 MHz processor, these panels can be used to process alarms and run previously defined recipes. To manage data, back it up, analyse and re-use it, they have a data archiving module that comes in three formats depending on the model:
- 128 MB flash memory on all models
- optionally on a USB stick and SD card on the MTP8/70
Optimised for the versatile Millenium 3 range of logic controllers, there are three models with enhanced connectivity, available in two sizes:
- 4.3in with RS232/RS485 serial port and USB 2.0 port: MTP6/50
- 4.3in with RS232/RS485 serial port and Ethernet port: MTP8/50
- 7in with 2 RS232/RS485 serial ports, a USB 1.1 port, a USB 2.0 port and 2 Ethernet ports: MTP8/70
The panel and logic controller connects directly to the Millenium 3 via its programming port. So there’s no need to use an extra extension cable.
These cost effective panels also makes it easier to switch from complex, expensive systems of panels equipped with switches, pushbuttons and indicators.
Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, the EB software is quick and easy to get to grips with, so one can start producing applications straightaway.
Once mastered, this powerful programming tool can create an infinite number of applications: building management, water treatment, access control, small industrial and commercial machines… all in compliance with EC, UL, C-UL standards. And in response to the demands, the panels’ graphics can be customised for any kind of project.
