High-legibility industrial touchscreen is the ‘smallest’

Paul Boughton

The latest Magelis HMI from Telemacaniquea brand of Schneider Electricis claimed to be the smallest industrial colour touchscreen ever.

Measuring just 3.8 inchesthe touchscreen is amazingly easy to read thanks to its high-legibility QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) screen.

The unit has function keys on screen that are large enough for even gloved handsand the screen displays text – from 7 rows of 10 characters up to 30 rows of 40 characters – as well as graphics with eight tonal levels.

The Magelis XBTGT also six function keys built into the fascia. Users canthereforecombine the user-friendliness of the touchscreen with the convenience of robust function keys for accessing options.
