Beijer Electronics Exter K10m will be one of the smallest keypad panels in the series, and machine builders in the packaging, manufacturing and food and beverage industries will benefit from several valuable features.
The Exter K10 panel has a keypad interface and a monochrome display. There is a great demand for such operator panels in applications with limited space and no need for a graphical display. Typically they are used in smaller machines within the packaging, manufacturing and food & beverage industries.
Quick and efficient information exchange:
The new Exter panels are ideal for applications where machine and process parameters needs to be viewed and set. Parameter settings are facilitated by the numerical keypad, and the six function keys can be programmed to represent the most frequently used commands.
Valuable features built-in or optional:
Just like the larger Exter panels, the Exter K10m has an IP66-rated front and built-in support for alarm-handling, multilanguage and recipe management. Communication ports for RS232/422/485 are also built-in. As an extra bonus, you also benefit from an optional Ethernet connection. This option is suitable when using the panels in Ethernet-based control and motion systems.
High quality monochrome displays:
The panel is equipped with monochrome FSTN displays and offers a resolution of 160x32 pixels, which enables the use of for instance Asian and Russian characters. The displays also have dimmable backlight so that they easily can be optimized for the surrounding light conditions.
Easy to convert from previous models:
Exter K10m will eventually replace the current Cimrex 10, 12 models. Users of the Cimrex models can easily convert their available projects in the configuration software Information Designer, so that valuable time is saved.
