Advantech Releases Industrial Touch Screen LCD with USB Interface
Known for its Plug & Play feature, USB is gaining momentum in use over the RS-232 port. When using an RS-232 port, users need to go through a configuration process and set up connections to other peripherals. USB is Plug & Play, so little or no configuration is necessary. The FPM-3150G-U is ideal for setups that require speed and flexibility by effectively reducing configuration time.
With more new machinery designs with USB interfaces, the USB port of the FPM-3150G-U is there to meet increasing market demand, says George Liao, HMI product manager at Advantech. The USB interface is clearly a market trend and we are happy to provide for this need."
The new 15 inch flat panel monitors of the FPM-3150 series are industrial grade with features such as NEMA4/IP65, an anti-reflective screen with tempered glass, and a hard anodized coating to protect the panel from abrasion and acid corrosion.
In addition, Advantech has redesigned the DC-IN power cord, the AC/DC power adapter and USB cable to further ruggedize the FPM-3150 series. With extra brackets to fasten cords with connectors, the power cords are now more firmly attached, reducing the risk of operation termination. Also, by using quality parts like TDK® inverters and 3M® touch screen sensors, Advantech is meeting the demands of customers requiring the most reliable systems.
The FPM-3150G-U has a list price of $1195. Advantech flat panel monitors are available for purchase directly from Advantech or from a North American distributor.
