With cutting-edge HMI (Human Machine Interface) technology, high-quality displays and award-winning design, the new EXTER terminals enable machine builders and system integrators to sharpen their competitive edge.
The new terminals provide the market with smaller models of the already appreciated EXTER series. They are available in touchscreen and keypad versions with display sizes from 3.5” to 5.7”.
Despite their size, the new terminals provide both hardware and functionality that is ready to meet the future.
At the heart of the EXTER terminals is a high-performance Intel Xscale processor.
The terminals also have a USB port to facilitate back-up and copying of recipes, alarms and project data. An option for connection to a Profibus network is already available and there are plans to provide support for other fieldbuses as well.
Another important feature of the EXTER series is the high-quality displays. EXTER terminals have high resolution, good contrast and large viewing angles. Colour displays feature 65,536 colours.
The EXTER terminals have been designed to easily integrate with automation systems and equipment – such as PLCs, variable speed drives and motion controllers - coming from the major brands on the market.
A wide range of drivers can be downloaded from Beijer Electronics’ homepage or via the configuration software Information Designer, which is used to configure the EXTER operator panels. The list of drivers is continuously updated according to needs and wishes of the market.
Operator terminals in the EXTER series were awarded the iF Design Award for both 2005 and 2006, and the design has also gained a lot of interest from machine builders around the world.
The EXTER series consists of seven touchscreens and four keypad terminals with display sizes from 3.5” to 15”.
