Balluff releases digital panels for data visualization
May 21, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
May 21, 2019 – Balluff has released point-of-use, touch screen digital displays to visualize four different types of signals — analog signals, incremental counter signals, start/stop pulse signals, and synchronous serial SSI signals.
Built to the same panel cut-out size, these displays have touch-screen operation and plain-text prompts to set parameters, including the screen color, linearization, hysteresis, totalizer, offset and more. They also provide DC sensor supply.
The digital display panel meters can be used for a wide range of applications, such as in point-of-use where manual operations or automated machine processes require digital numeric feedback to operators, or for applications where sensors are used to check machine status and process conditions.
The tri-colour display alerts operators to changing process conditions while the built-in display of units eliminates the need for separate panel labels.
Other features include common housing, mounting and single panel cut-out dimension for all variants across the portfolio, a variety of scaling, signal processing, and programming capabilities that minimize PLC programming, and built-in IP65 front panel protection
