Gesture and multi-touch operation of machines and plants

07.04.2014

The Siemens Industry Automation Division is launching new flat-panel monitors and panel PCs with industrial standard 19 and 22-inch widescreen displays for gesture and multi-touch operation.

The Simatic IFP1900 and IFP2200 flat-panel monitors and the Simatic IPC477D and IPC677D panel PCs feature projected capacitive touch (PCT) screens that are specially designed for industrial applications.


The Siemens Industry Automation Division is launching new flat-panel monitors and panel PCs with industrial standard 19 and 22-inch widescreen displays for gesture and multi-touch operation.

They respond to light contact, enabling intuitive and efficient single-touch, multi-touch, gesture, and two-hand operation of machinery and plant. They even respond when the operator is wearing protective gloves.

Outstanding features of the new flat-panel monitors and panel PCs include industrial standard anti-glare, ensuring easy legibility from wide viewing angles, high touch resolution for precise operation, and automatic detection of spurious touching and operation, for example, caused by catching the screen with the ball of the hand or soiling.

The continuous glass front is scratch-proof and resistant to chemicals; a metal surround protects the glass front from mechanical damage.

The devices in aluminum housings are designed for 24-hour continuous use, meet exacting temperature, vibration, shock, and EMC requirements, and can be used for single-touch applications, too.

Im Focus: Thousands on one chip: New Method to study Proteins

Since the completion of the human genome an important goal has been to elucidate the function of the now known proteins: a new molecular method enables the investigation of the function for thousands of proteins in parallel. Applying this new method, an international team of researchers with leading participation of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) was able to identify hundreds of previously unknown interactions among proteins.

The human genome and those of most common crops have been decoded for many years. Soon it will be possible to sequence your personal genome for less than 1000...

Im Focus: Flexible OLED applications arrive

R2D2, a joint project to analyze and development high-TRL processes and technologies for manufacture of flexible organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has been successfully completed.

In contrast to point light sources like LEDs made of inorganic semiconductor crystals, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are light-emitting surfaces. Their...

Im Focus: 3-D printing produces cartilage from strands of bioink

Strands of cow cartilage substitute for ink in a 3D bioprinting process that may one day create cartilage patches for worn out joints, according to a team of engineers. "Our goal is to create tissue that can be used to replace large amounts of worn out tissue or design patches," said Ibrahim T. Ozbolat, associate professor of engineering science and mechanics. "Those who have osteoarthritis in their joints suffer a lot. We need a new alternative treatment for this."

Cartilage is a good tissue to target for scale-up bioprinting because it is made up of only one cell type and has no blood vessels within the tissue. It is...
