Feb. 20, 2017 – Rexroth says its IndraControl VR series of embedded terminals complement the existing IndraControl V portfolio of larger screen HMIs and the PC-based panels, including the IndraControl VEP, VDP, VSP, and VPP series.
The VR HMI uses a 16:9 format and is available in 4 in., 7 in. and 9 in. sizes. The 7 in. and 9 in. panels also have a capacitive screen, multi-touch option. According to Rexroth, the series is a cost-saving alternative to the PC-based panels and utilize the Windows 7 Compact Embedded operating system. The ARM Cortex-A8 800 MHz processor boasts “excellent performance and reliability.” The series comes complete with 512 MB of RAM, 256 MB of flash memory as well as an integrated SD card memory slot. Rexroth’s HMI programming software, WinStudio, can be used to develop applications for the VR controller, moving all Rexroth operator interfaces to the same programming development software.
