Ethernet interface extends use of industrial monitors

16.03.2015

Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015: Hall 9, Booth D35

  • No distance restriction when used via Ethernet interface
  • Up to 4 monitors linked to one IPC
  • Greater flexibility in development of decentralized operating concepts
  • Cost savings on cabling

Through the integration of an Ethernet interface, Siemens is extending the possibilities for using its Flat Panel product. Whereas thus far the latter could be used via the DVI and Displayport graphics interfaces at a distance of up to 30 meters from the server, connection via an Ethernet interface now enables the use of monitor screens as far away from the server as desired.

In this case, up to four monitors, which feature a continuous glass front and Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT) technology, can be hooked up to an industrial PC at the same time. The 19" and 22" glass front monitors support intuitive operation with gestures and multi-touch operation even if the operator is wearing workgloves.

Connection to the Ethernet instead of via graphics interfaces brings greater flexibility in the development and introduction of decentralized operating concepts in mechanical and plant engineering. Time and cost savings can also be achieved in parallel thanks to reduced effort in terms of the cabling required.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
