The main features of the HBG 0811 handheld panel from Sigmatek is its light weight of 950 g that enables hours of fatigue-free operation, plus an operating system-independent HMI-Link technology. This makes it possible to transport all data (display, USB, power, Safety) over a single cable solution up to 100 meters. Because the operation panel does not have its own processor, it can be used for several hours without heating. The user can tune the CPU performance to the application in the control cabinet. On the 8.4" touch screen with LED backlight and SVGA resolution (800 x 600 pixel),also complex visualization tasks can be implemented. The ergonomically designed grip of the panel provides operating comfort for both right and left-handers. The handheld panel has all the safety-relevant elements such as a three-stage confirmation button, emergency stop as well as a key switch. Periphery devices can be connected through the USB2.0 interface. Simple screw technology allows the oil and chemical-resistant cable to be exchanged without tools.
