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.
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.

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.
Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...
What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...
A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
