QSI Corporation, manufacturer of rugged operator interface and mobile data terminals, and Neuro Logic Systems, Inc., developers of industrial, commercial and military displays, have recently collaborated to develop the PMT-10 graphic human machine interface (HMI). This technology was built specifically for the U.S. Navy and is used for firing weapon systems.

The PMT-10 is an Ethernet-enabled HMI terminal with infrared touch screen. The PMT-10 includes a 10” high contrast Sharp color LCD with a wide-viewing angle; 10/100Base-T Ethernet; and two serial ports (EIA-232 or -422); and speaker and real-time clock. The rugged terminal features a solid aluminum enclosure that has passed Mil Spec 901D, 167, 461E. The unit is currently being used by the U.S. Navy because it has been certified for hard-deck applications. While this HMI was built for weapons systems, the NLS/QSI combination terminal can be customized for any application.

The PMT-10 uses QSI’s object-based graphic terminal programming language called Qlarity™ (pronounced Clarity) allowing for simple and quick application deployments. Designing a simple control panel interface or a complete stand-alone application has never been easier. The ability to use pre-defined objects, edit existing objects or author your own objects, provides flexibility to the novice and expert alike. Qlarity Foundry™, a PC-based design tool, provides a Windows® environment for screen creation, application simulation, debugging and downloading to the terminal.

“We are pleased to have worked with Neuro Logic Systems on such an interesting project for the U.S. Navy," said Jim Elwell, President of QSI. "We are delighted that our rugged industrial products are proving to be suitable for use in the United States military."

"The best part of our system is that it utilizes commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware rather than proprietary equipment,” said Steve Sitko, President of Neuro Logic Systems. “Working with QSI, we were able to develop a system for use in areas where space is minimal and the environment is detrimental to normal computer systems.”
