The plug & play HMI systems are available in sizes from 7 to 17.3 inches and with three different control units: POS-RP-PRO which has been based on a RaspberryPi with the latest compute module CM3 / CM3 +, POS-IQ-PRO with a powerful Intel x86 CPU from the latest Pentium generation and POS-4K-PRO offering a resolution of 3840 to 2160 pixels.
“The new ‘intelligent’ Panel PC series offers a high level of versatility and can be used flexibly in different projects,” explained Matthias Keller, Managing Director of Distec GmbH. “A special feature of the very slim touch displays is their smartphone-like front, which enables visually appealing input systems.”
The POS-PRO display modules are designed to be robust and can be used in many different applications: automation, medical technology, Industry 4.0, digital signage, professional fitness equipment, vending, public transport, high quality lifestyle products, home automation, and aviation.
All of the TFT display modules in the POS-PRO range have been CE-certified. The displays are built into a stainless steel chassis. The front of the panels have IP65 protection to make them suitable for tough industrial environments. All POS-PRO models have a viewing angle independent IPS or VA display with an integrated 10-finger PCAP touchscreen. They offer a brightness of up to real 1,300 cd/m², meaning that they are suitable for use in direct sunlight. Distec can also equip the displays with antibacterial glass to kill bacteria efficiently and quickly, even on dry surfaces. The modules offer RS-485, RS-232, UART, I2C, Ethernet, USB2.0 and USB3.0 interfaces.
The POS-PRO series is well suited for the EU Eco-design directive that will apply from March 2021. Distec will also guarantee long-term availability of spare parts.
