In, out and about HMI: GUIs, monitors among new offerings

New HMI products this month include high-resolution GUI modules, a graphical operator interface for weighing systems, and a 15-in. LCD monitor.


Amulet Technologies introduces half and full VGA-size smart GUI modules.

New HMI products this month include high-resolution GUI modules, a graphical operator interface for weighing systems, and a 15-in. LCD monitor. Features of each are outlined here.

Graphical operator interface from Mettler Toledo is designed for weighing applications.

Half and full VGA-size smart GUI modules from Amulet Technologies give the power of high-resolution graphics and detailed screen content to embedded developers. High-resolution LCDs make the GUIs suitable for developing point-of-sale terminals and touchscreens for high-end consumer electronics. Use of the company's graphical operating system in silicon makes creating attractive GUI screen content easy and yields a final output more elaborate and ornate than in the past. Higher resolution displays allow more content per GUI page as well. Product comes with its own microprocessor, graphics library and LCD controller.

LCD monitor from Sharp Systems of America accepts input from two computers

Jagxtreme graphical operator interface from Mettler Toledo provides state-of-the-art visual representation to meet industry's need for weighing systems that understand the weighing process and communicate information. Constructed to withstand severe environments, the device uses large images and animated objects to provide familiar symbols for sophisticated information. Connectivity options are also available, including Ethernet to link to any local area or wide area network.

LL-T15G4 15-in. XGA LCD monitor is the newest addition to the line-up from Sharp Systems of America . Equipped with both digital and analog inputs, the unit is designed for first-time digital LCD monitor customers and businesses seeking to deploy LCD monitors across the enterprise. Suitable for multi-monitor applications, the device has 260-nit brightness and an array of features including a compact frame with a thin bezel, built-in stereo speakers, and a wide-viewing angle display. In addition, the monitor can accept input from two computers.
