Touchscreen interface panels
AutomationDirect has added its new EA9 series operator touch panels to the C-more line. The colour TFT touchscreens are available in six-, eight-, 10-, 12- or 15-inch versions. The EA9 series touch panels are equipped with 800-MHz CPUs, 64k colours and 50,000-hour backlights. Hardware includes three serial ports (one on the six-inch base model), an Ethernet 10/100BaseT port (full-featured models), two USB 2.0 ports (one type A, and one type B), and one slot for an optional SD memory card. The 12- and 15-inch models support two SD cards and are equipped with one HDMI video output port. The six-, eight- and 10-inch units support 26 MB of project memory, while the 12- and 15-inch units contain 82 MB of project space. An audio output port, when attached to an amplifier and speaker(s), can play warning sounds or pre-recorded messages (full-featured models). All touch panels are 12-24 VDC powered.
