Flush-mount HMI enables machine builders to promote their brand identity

23 August 2016

With the latest addition to the GOT2000 family of HMIs, Mitsubishi Electric has introduced a new style of operator interface. The open-frame, back mounting design enables machine builders to reinforce their own brand identity.

Further, with the addition of an adhesive film that overlaps onto the machine panel, the new Open Frame GOT2000 models offer IP67 protection at the front, meeting the needs of hygiene sensitive applications, for example in the food and pharmaceutical sectors.

The flush front surface looks like an integral part of the control panel, which enables machine builders to reinforce their own brand and corporate identities and gives a premium feel to the machine.

With the addition of the environmental protection film with its stainless look, the touch panel blends into the machinery, and also meets the needs of hygienic production equipment for the pharmaceutical and food industries.

There are no nooks and crannies for dirt to hide, and the screen can be wiped with a damp cloth and washed with water. The film also allows the unit to be operated with wet hands.

The design of the Open Frame GOT2000 ensures easy and flexible installation into the panel cut-out, with simple adjustment to different panel thicknesses of between 1.5mm and 4mm. Additionally the edges of the touch panel are protected by a moulding to eliminate the risk of any damage to the HMI during installation.

The food and pharmaceutical industries will like the ability to include data logging from PLCs and other devices, with the presentation of data in lists or graphical form for simple analysis. An optional built-in web server functionality, allows the unit to be accessed remotely from a standard web browser on a PC.
