The TXF700 series from Turck provides an ultra-robust HMI series with complete all-round protection to IP67 for use at temperatures between -20 and +55°C. The HMI platform enables flexible and slim mounting, and it no longer requires installation in protective housings or control cabinets. The TFT displays are protected by a glass front and comprise a capacitive touch screen which supports multi-touch capability and gesture control. This allows the latest operating concepts from smartphones and tablets to be brought to the rugged environments of industrial automation. The TXF700 HMIs are available in display sizes from 5” to 21.5” and with a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The devices can be used wherever no Ex protection or hygiene requirements apply, e.g. in machine and system building, in the packaging industry, as well as in the intralogistics, mobile equipment and automobile sectors. Besides the conventional HMI protocols for connecting to controllers, such as Siemens, Beckhoff or Rockwell, TX VisuPro also supports MQTT or OPC-UA as server and client. The TXF700 HMIs can communicate simultaneously with up to eight protocols. Last, this gateway function enables data to be exchanged between different controllers or terminal devices.
