Turck’s new HMI series enables cabinet-free operating and installation concepts at operating temperatures between -20 and +55 °C
Turck’s TXF700 series now offers an ultra-robust HMI series with complete all-round IP67 protection for use at temperatures between -20 and +55 °C. With its high degree of protection, this modern HMI platform allows for flexible and slim mounting since, unlike previous solutions, it no longer requires installation inside protective housings or control cabinets.
The brilliant TFT displays are protected by a glass front and feature a capacitive touch screen supporting multi-touch capability and gesture control. This enables the latest operating concepts from the world of smartphones and tablets to be brought into the rugged environments of industrial automation. The TXF700 HMIs are available in display sizes from 5” to 21.5” and with a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels.
Turck has further expanded their extensive IP67 portfolio with the new HMI/PLC series. The devices can be used in machine and system building applications, the packaging industry, as well as in the intralogistics and mobile equipment sectors, but not where Ex protection or hygienic installation is required.
The TXF700 can be used in simple visualization applications but also, if required, as an IIoT gateway or edge controller with Turck’s TX VisuPro. Besides the conventional HMI protocols for connecting to controllers, such as Siemens, Beckhoff or Rockwell, TX VisuPro also supports MQTT or OPC-UA as server and client. The TXF700 HMIs can communicate simultaneously with up to eight protocols. This gateway function therefore also enables data to be exchanged between different controllers or terminal devices.
