QSI Corporation, designer and manufacturer of rugged human machine interface (HMI) and mobile data terminals, is pleased to introduce the new QTERM-A7 HMI. Designed to connect to most automation equipment whether it be on the factory floor or outside in harsh conditions. The QTERM-A7 has NEMA-4X / IP66 sealing, operates in extended temperature ranges and is certified for use in Class I Div 2 hazardous locations.
Features include a widescreen 177 mm (7"), 800 x 480 pixel TFT-LCD display, resistive touch screen, Ethernet 10/100Base-T interface with two USB 2.0 full-speed host ports and two serial ports to connect to nearly any device. The QTERM-A7 is environmentally tested to withstand shock, vibration and humidity and can operate in temperatures ranging from -30 to 70 °C (-22 to 158 °F).
The QTERM-A7 offers a choice of programming platforms: iX Software by Beijer Electronics, QSI's new Qlarity® 3, Windows® Embedded CE 6.0 or a third-party software. iX includes drivers to communicate with automation equipment (PLC, motion control, etc), scalable vector-based graphics (WPF), open architecture (.NET, C#), intuitive design environment and enhanced HMI functionality for today's automation control market. Designed by QSI, Qlarity 3 is an object-based programming language that supports high color vector graphics.
