Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany, 2019/11/07 - Powerful Web Panels and Control Panels based on Arm® NXP i.MX6 processors with capacitive multitouch technology for device and machine control as well as building automation - SYSGO.com / Kontron.com.
Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), announces the addition of a Web Panel and a Control Panel series to its Human Machine Interface (HMI) portfolio. The devices of both product lines are characterized by an attractive design, IPS displays with high resolution in 7 inch, 10.1 and 15.6 inch, brightness and capacitive multitouch technology as well as scalable processor performance based on Single- or Dual-Core Arm® NXP i.MX6 processors. They feature a rugged touch screen in an aluminium or stainless steel frame and are specifically designed for use in industrial environments. In the standard version, the Panel PCs of both series are intended for installation in control cabinets or consoles and exhibit IP65 protection on the front side.
The Web Panels visualize HTML5 content via a performance-optimized browser based on Chromium and are suitable for flexible visualizations on devices and machines as well as in building automation or infotainment. Alternatively they are available with the slim Micro-Browser from iniNet, which enables shortest reaction times for PLC controls with an integrated webserver from CODESYS. The Control Panels offer various fieldbus interfaces on the rear and are optionally available with the CODESYS Soft-PLC to quickly and efficiently implement sophisticated automation and visualization solutions for device or machine controls, but also for building automation. If required, the devices of the Control Panel series can be supplemented with Web Panels to display visualization contents at other locations. Linux Embedded serves as the operating system.
Thanks to the robust design and the possibility of deployment in ambient temperatures from 0°C to 55°C, the panels are ideally suited for use in industrial environments. The modular design allows easy adaptation to customer-specific requirements. A version with higher performance based on NXP i.MX8 processors is planned for the 2nd quarter of 2020.
