Beijer releases new HMI family with multiple sizes, connectivity options, and sophisticated graphic software.Beijer Electronics, a designer and manufacturer of human machine interface (HMI) products and mobile data terminals, is pleased to introduce three new operator panels. The new iX Panel TxA operator panels are available in a variety of display sizes and feature the upgraded iX software with multiple drivers to communicate with most automation equipment.

Offered in three sizes, the iX Panel TxA touch panels are available with a 4.3, 7, or 10.4 in. display. The wide screen display in the 4.3 and 7 in. units provide a 30% larger viewing area, which increases usability for complex user applications. The TFT displays are equipped with LED dimmable backlighting for long life. Additional features include a lightweight aluminum housing, built-in Ethernet connection, USB port, and four serial ports.

The TxA panels include the upgraded iX 1.30 software. The company says its iX platform is unique in the automation industry because of its intuitive design environment, scalable vector graphics, open platform, and ability to connect to existing hardware.

“Designed with input from our customers, the TxA series has been well received,” said Bob Mullins, industrial product manager for Beijer Electronics, Inc. “While the hardware is impressive, it is the iX software and its capabilities that get the most reaction.”
