Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 12, 2006
QSI Corporation, manufacturer of rugged operator interface and mobile data terminals, was selected by Lansmont Corporation, developers of field-to-lab solutions, to provide the graphic human machine interface (HMI) on Lansmont's TouchTest Shock 2 Control System.
Shock tests are used to accurately measure the fragility of products and to evaluate protective packaging. Shock test data information is necessary to ensure that any product is capable of with standing its real-world environment. All machine operations on the TouchTest Shock 2 are interfaced through QSI's QTERM-G70 touch screen operator interface terminal. The QTERM-G70 allows the operator to set up basic functions on the TouchTest Shock 2, such as drop height, brake pressure, and programmer pressure. More advanced set up features, such as shock pulse predictor and auto-cycle functions are also included with the control system.
QSI's QTERM-G70 is a rugged, Ethernet-enabled graphic human-machine terminal using a touch screen to interface with the user. This rugged terminal features a robust list of industrial-grade hardware features and options including a 320x240 lighted graphic LCD display (color or grayscale); 100Base-T Ethernet with TCP/IP support; touch screen with optional PS/2 keyboard connection; and an EIA-232, -422 or -485 serial interface. The QTERM-G70 graphic terminal is ruggedized for use in harsh industrial environments and is NEMA-4 rated and CE certified.
The QTERM-G70 uses an object-based graphic terminal programming language called Qlarity™ (pronounced Clarity). 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 QTERM-G70 terminal.
"We are delighted to supply the rugged graphic terminal for Lansmont Corporation on their innovative new shock-test control system," said Jim Elwell, President of QSI. "QSI looks forward to a long and mutually-beneficial collaboration with Lansmont."
"QSI's QTERM-G70 touch screen terminal plays an important role in Lansmont's new state-of-the-art shock test control system," said Carole Hays, Marketing Coordinator for Lansmont Corporation. "The graphic terminal provides an easy-to-use interface for setting up basic and advanced functions on the TouchTest Shock 2 Control System."
