Products 7 inch HG2J Series HMI IDEC touchscreen

IDEC Corporation has expanded its HMI product family with the new HG2J Series 7 in. touchscreen HMI. Hardware and software advancements incorporated into this HMI make it easier to integrate and use for any type of industrial application, the company says.

The HMI’s projected capacitive touch panel (PCAP) technology saves space, improves performance, is wear-resistant, and provides a long life, it adds.

The touchscreen display is said to provide an industry-leading 500 cd/m2 brightness level and 50,000-hour backlight life.

With a TFT LCD display resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, the unit does not require the large bezels of standard IR displays, allowing the bezel to be slimmer and sleeker in appearance for a small installation footprint.

The overall HMI depth is 30 mm, less than the 40 mm or more depth required by competing products, the company says.

Operation with an input voltage of 12 to 24 Vdc makes the series suitable for a wide variety of industrial, solar, and vehicle applications.

The HMI is rated for operation from -20° to 60°C, and it carries IP66/67, UL, and CE ratings, with a Class I Div 2 hazardous location rating.
