The panel is designed for rough industrial environments. A rounded, double-walled housing absorbs hard impacts. The cable, connector and housing are protected from dust and sprayed water. A special soft-touch coating makes the surface of the Mobile Panel resistant to acids, alcohol and cleaning agents. A three-step enabling switch and an E-stop button are integrated in the device, both of which meet safety category 4. The connection to the switching cabinet is made using a single cable, which includes all supply, communication and control lines. The Mobile Panel is available with a 5.7-in. QVGA LCD color display or with an 8.4-in. VGA TFT color display. Ethernet, CAN bus and RS232 interfaces are integrated for communication.
