QSI Graphical Operator Interface Used in GP2 Technologies’ Book Binding Machinery
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH. October 2005. QSI Corporation, manufacturer of rugged operator interface and mobile data terminals, has been selected by GP2 Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of bindery machinery, to provide the graphic human machine interface (HMI) on GP2 Technologies’ casemaking machinery for on-demand, short-run and entry-level bindery automation applications.

QSI Corporation’s QTERM-G70 rugged operator interface terminal is currently used in GP2 Technologies’ SC-2 Autocase, AC-20 Autocase and LC-10 Autocase semi- and fully-automatic casemakers. The QTERM-G70 will also be used in the AL-20 Autoliner, a truly revolutionary machine for the application of liners to ring binders, letter files, calendars, game boards, photo albums and similar products. QSI’s QTERM-G70 graphic touch screen terminal is representative of the advanced technology built into the GP2 Technologies’ machinery and not found on other entry- or mid-level bindery equipment.

QSI’s QTERM-G70 is a rugged, Ethernet-enabled graphic human-machine terminal using a touch screen to interface with the user. This rugged terminal features a robust list of industrial-grade hardware features and options including a 320x240 lighted graphic LCD display (color or grayscale); 100Base-T Ethernet with TCP/IP support; touch screen with optional PS/2 keyboard connection; EIA-232, -422 or -485 serial interface; and 4 Mbytes Flash / 16 Mbytes RAM. The QTERM-G70 graphic terminal is ruggedized for use in harsh industrial environments and is NEMA-4 rated and CE certified.

The QTERM-G70 uses an object-based graphic terminal programming language called Qlarity™ (pronounced Clarity). Designing a simple control panel interface or a complete stand-alone application has never been easier. The ability to use pre-defined objects, edit existing objects or author your own objects, provides flexibility to the novice and expert alike. Qlarity Foundry™, a PC-based design tool, provides a Windows® environment for screen creation, application simulation, debugging and downloading to the QTERM-G70 terminal.

“We're excited about working with GP2 Technologies on their newest introduction of an automated, cost-effective system," said Karen Stanley, Sales Manager for QSI. "The QTERM-G70 allows the operator to see the measured size of the book on the display screen, providing better-quality end products."

"The QTERM-G70 touch screen further exemplifies our commitment to user-friendly, simple-to-operate casemakers,” said Jerry Peterson, Vice President of Operations for GP2 Technologies, Inc. “With GP2 Technologies’ innovative products, you will make covers, not make-readies.”
