Panel PCs in perfection – our contribution to Industry 4.0

Our product range includes a variety of industrial panel PCs that are tailored to customer-specific requirements. One example is the "S-Line" industrial panel PC series, which has a modular design and combines nifty technology with chic design.

Robust aluminium enclosure with IP65

The devices in the robust aluminium housing are fully IP65 protected, have an overhang-free, easy-to-clean all-glass surface and are designed for use directly in the field. Due to the high flexibility, the industrial panel PCs of the "S-Line" series can be used for the operation, programming, visualization, long-term archiving and simulation of processes in all areas of automation and can also be combined with conventional industrial controls or PLCs.

Regardless of whether it's a panel PC or an industrial monitor - our "S-Line" is available to you as a touch, multitouch and / or keyboard device in various display sizes. All versions, from one-off to series production, allow use in particularly harsh environments.

HMI Creations S-Line Panel PC

The S-Line series is based on customer-specific requirements and impresses with a high degree of modularity. You can get your desired S-Line from us as a PC or as a monitor in various sizes and designs. This system also offers individual installation and configuration options - so you get a device that is perfectly tailored to your needs. We will of course be happy to provide you with the right support arm solution for your desired system. Do you have a very special application challenge? We would be happy to advise you and work with you to develop your needs-based solution.

Panel PC S-Line in a robust housing

Our innovative housing concept enables the space-saving and weight-optimized configuration of industrial HMI systems and is prepared for many additional applications, such as EKS Euchner readers, bottom-side 2D barcode scanners and lateral mounting of additional peripheral devices.

In addition, our S-Line is designed so that the housing is classy and timeless (winner of the "Red dot Design Award" 2017). We can upgrade the main components to the latest technologies (CPU, memory, display, etc.) at any time and continue to use the robust housings.

Quick Change Device "QuickLock"

Production time is money, and downtime due to malfunctions is therefore expensive. The patented "QuickLock" quick-change device minimizes the latter. A panel can be changed in 10 seconds without tools and by just one person - plug in, snap in: done. The stand and support arm can be mechanically mounted with different turning and tilting angles. The connections and interfaces of the PC are easily accessible in the large, lockable connection area and are safely protected from unauthorized persons.

High availability thanks to the patented quick-change device

The device ID and / or the configuration data of the operator station are saved with the help of a storage medium located in the connection area of the support arm system. If the control unit is replaced, it is immediately registered to the respective station when the system is newly installed, using data transfer - storage medium / quick-change adapter. This means that the control unit is immediately ready for use and long production downtimes can be avoided.
