The 4.0 paradigm requires simple and effective advanced interfaces which allow the operator to manage production systems that are increasingly interconnected and integrated, from multiple devices. In this scenario, Gefran presents G-Vision, the new multitouch capacitive Panel PC platform, UL certified, with integrated Web Server and 4.0 connectivity.
In detail, G-Vision has a large range of bright widescreen TFT LED displays, suitable for any working environment, from 7 to 21.5 inches with a wide viewing angle. The solution allows the creation of scalable pages (responsive in size) and thanks to the integrated Web Server, accessible from any location, even through the Cloud. The Linux operating system combined with the 64-bit RISC quad core - 1.6GHz processors guarantees high performance of the integrated graphics libraries and allows numerous plug-ins and widgets, such as HTML browsers, PDF and video viewers, as well as the ability to create and print reports.
“The demand for HMI solutions on production lines is increasing. There are two emerging technological trends in particular: the availability of an integrated Web Server and the creation of pages in HTML format for maximum compatibility with different devices, in order to allow a leap in performance in production management and maintenance" states Lorenzo Taraborelli, Gefran’s Programmable Automation Product Manager. “In this sense, the new G-Vision terminals respond to the demands of modern architecture, in terms of interconnection capacity with external systems in order to facilitate machine-to-machine communication and make data and information available to operators, supervisors and production managers quickly, and in a safe and detailed way. In the next few months, the possibility will also be given, through a licence, to enable the execution of PLC code, allowing the development of logics directly on the panel."
