Gesture and multi-touch operation of machinery and plant – on a 15" display

27.11.2014
  • Flat panel monitor and panel PCs for gesture and multi-touch operation
  • 15" widescreen display with projected capacitive touchscreen (PCT)
  • Intuitive and efficient operation of machinery and plant
  • Easy, efficient implementation of modern multi-touch user interfaces

Siemens is launching 15" widescreen devices for gesture and multi-touch operation onto the market. The flat panel monitor Simatic IFP1500 and the two panel PCs Simatic IPC477D and IPC677D with a 15" display will complement the existing portfolio of 19" and 22" devices.

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

The continuous glass front is scratch-proof and resistant to chemicals, while a metal surround protects the glass edge from mechanical damage. Machinery and plant manufacturers benefit from the multi-touch devices from Siemens for modern operating concepts featuring zooming, scrolling and context-sensitive displays.

Multi-touch user interfaces can be implemented easily and efficiently thanks to the industry-specific device design, the practical functions and the supporting engineering tools.

The new flat panel monitor Simatic IFP1500 and the new panel PCs Simatic IPC477D and IPC677D with a 15" display are ideal for the intuitive, efficient operation of machinery and plant using one or more fingers as well as gestures or two hands. They can also be operated while wearing protective gloves, and can be used for single-touch applications.

The new devices with projected capacitive touchscreens (PCTs) designed specifically for industrial applications are splash-proof and dirt-resistant. The special design, which features a continuous glass front and keyless operation, makes the new products ideally suited to applications with rigorous cleanliness and hygiene requirements, for example in the food and beverages industry. The devices with an aluminum housing are designed for 24-hour continuous operation, and comply with high-temperature, vibration, shock and EMC requirements.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
