We are pleased to introduce our new ruggedised Operator Terminal Computer; the ‘OTC-51’. Specifically engineered for production floor environments, its ‘easy to clean, easy to operate, easy to mount’ design makes it ideal for both Machinery and Process Automation applications, such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES).
The need for reliable HMI and process information functionality is increasingly important for use in the demanding conditions of a production floor, particularly in applications requiring high standards of hygiene such as food, beverage and pharmaceutical. The OTC-51 has been engineered with just this in mind. Based on over 26 years of Industrial Computer design and manufacturing know-how, the OTC-51 is IP66 rated, operator friendly and has VESA mounting capability.
- Easy to Clean
- Easy to Operate
- Easy to Mount
Easy to Clean
Sealed all the way around, the computer is IP66 rated making it suitable for use in production floor environments where fluid and dust are common. Its aesthetically pleasing appearance allows for OEM branding and comprises a stainless steel bezel, which makes the terminal ideal for use in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries where, high pressure wash-down is common.
Standard computer cables and connectors are attached through a sealed cable entry bay, avoiding the frequently used bulky screw-on connectors which are notorious bacteria traps for hygiene sensitive industries, and require complex and time consuming connection.
Easy to Operate
The OTC-51 is operator friendly with a 5-wire resistive touch screen, allowing the terminal to be operated whilst wearing gloves. Also contributing to its ergonomics is the high resolution widescreen display, making it compatible with standard PC application software, ensuring operator familiarity.
Easy to Mount
A VESA mounting capability allows the terminal to be conveniently located for optimal use by the operator. It has no need to be mounted in a separate enclosure, unlike panel PC’s usually used within machine automation.
Running on an Intel Dual Core Atom Processor, the OTC-51 is powerful and efficient. This is important when high levels of processing are required, such as, networked database access associated with MES applications. The terminal comes with a protected USB port on the front bezel for flexible data transfer. Expansion capability is also available, for specialist functions such as WIFI.
