Multi-touch HMI series

14 January 2020

Panasonic Industry Europe has introduced the HMx700 series, a high-end series of operator panels with Multi-Touch functions that works like a smartphone.

The series combines the advantages of two worlds: the HMx700 panel is a high-end operating device for demanding applications in the IIoT area, which despite its wide range of functions does not compromise on robustness. 

A logical visualisation of the processes and data on the display of the control panel is essential for intuitive and error-free operation of the system.  Thanks to the high-resolution display, this opens up completely new possibilities for the design of innovative user interactions. With the HMx700 series, several touch gestures such as wiping, enlarging, reducing, scrolling and other functions can be implemented.

The function keys of the touch screen display can be easily and individually adapted with the user-friendly software HMWin.

Panasonic Industry proves once again that the needs of the users are implemented in the product development of this product: the highest attention has been given to production requirements, especially the user-friendliness. The user of the operating panel can, for example, watch stored videos, read PDFs or adapt the contents to the correct size using the zoom function. In addition, the HMI series allows extremely transfer rates up to 50MByte/sec. and can also be operated with protective gloves. It offers users a high level of user ergonomics and thus more comfort in their daily work.

The capacitive glass touch display used offers several advantages: It is easy to read even under difficult environmental conditions, is UV-resistant, scratch-resistant and resistant to a variety of chemicals, which also makes cleaning very easy. In addition, the HMx700 Series panels are flexible in a temperature range of -20°C to +60°C. This means that the user does not have to guarantee a constant operating temperature.

In addition to the attractive exterior, the HMx700 series is also very well equipped technically: the touch terminals offer a power supply between 10 and 32 volts DC and the possibility to extend the operator panel with local interfaces. In addition, the operator interfaces are noiseless and low-maintenance. The HMx700 series also works without a fan and is therefore protected against dust, oil and splash water.

Software equipment:

- Multi-protocol capable
- Cloud capable
- HTML5 web technology
- VNC technology (Virtual Network Computing)
- Support of the current Chromium Browser
- powerful web panel with industry standard web engine
- OPC-UA Standard
- user-friendly software HMWin

The HMx700 product range is therefore an all-round solution for industrial automation with very low energy consumption and a long product life cycle. For this reason, Panasonic Industry offers a 5-year warranty on the new HMx700 series.
