With the availability of WinCE, our customers will not only be able to easily integrate our products into their existing systems, they will also have access to a variety of applications
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 22, 2009
QSI Corporation, designer and manufacturer of rugged human machine interface (HMI) terminals, is pleased to introduce the new family of handheld graphic HMI terminals. The product line includes three rugged terminals with different levels of functionality and cost; the low-cost handheld or panel-mount QTERM-G55 with a grayscale display; the new tethered handheld QTERM-G56 featuring touch screen capabilities and the full-featured battery-powered QTERM-G58 with optional WiFi.
Available in 2010, Windows® Embedded CE 6.0 will be offered on both the QTERM-G58 and the new QTERM-G56. QSI customers will be able to use Microsoft® Visual Studio® and related technologies like Win32, MFC, Visual C#® and Visual Basic® for application development. QSI's proprietary language, Qlarity®, will still be available but not required to make an application for the terminal.
"With the availability of WinCE, our customers will not only be able to easily integrate our products into their existing systems, they will also have access to a variety of applications," said Neil Vasant, CEO of QSI Corporation. "We are very excited to extend WinCE solutions to our handheld product family."
Both the QTERM-G58 and QTERM-G56 have been upgraded to include a touch screen as a standard feature. The touch screen allows more flexibility for both the developer and user. The graphic display has also been upgraded to improve terminal operation in direct sunlight.
"The addition of touch to the QTERM-G58 and QTERM-G56 allows for more intuitive user applications to be developed," said Bob Mullins, QSI Corporation's product manager. "With no increase in cost, there is definitely more bang for your buck."
