Open Frame (back installation)
An open frame panel PC implements the central human-machine interface (HMI). Integrated in a robust sheet steel housing (cage chassis), a high-quality industrial display is combined with powerful PC components to form a slim, user-friendly unit. In the case of the open frame construction, it is installed at the rear (from the rear) in cutouts of an existing front. The priority with this form of the panel PC is an absolutely reliable machine control and operational control in continuous industrial operation as well as the long-term availability of all components. An open frame panel PC is often the installation solution of choice, particularly in environments where there are no high requirements for dust or water tightness.
The backlit LCD displays of the Open Frame models range from a compact 8.4-inch format to screen diagonals of 56 inches. Almost all sizes are available in the conventional 4: 3 aspect ratio as well as 16: 9 widescreen. Excellent brightness and contrast values ensure optimal readability in all lighting conditions. If interaction with the user is desired in addition to being used as a pure operation control, a keyboard can be integrated into the built-in level directly under the open frame panel PC. Alternatively, Open Frame Panel PCs of all sizes are also available with a resistive touch display, which enables precise 1-finger operation on the screen. The task of the panel PCs - operating and monitoring - is individually adapted for an optimal customer solution, according to requirements.
With or without a touch screen, what ultimately counts for Open Frame Panel PCs is that they can be seamlessly integrated into an industrial network and that they perform their tasks with the highest level of reliability. The best guarantee for this are hardware components in certified "FirstWare" quality as well as a recorded burn-in stress test that every device is subjected to before delivery.
