Pro-face America announces the release of its SP5000X eXtreme HMI Series. This series is an addition to the Pro-face family and is designed to answer the automation industry’s need for HMIs that can be used in extreme and hazardous conditions, including outdoor applications.
The 7”, or 12” SP5000X wide sunlight readable display made with an aluminum die-cast, stainless steel bezel has been combined with the SP5B90X box unit to create what the company calls their eXtreme system. This combination is meant to offer operating temperatures ranging from -30º to 70º C, a high brightness liquid crystal panel displaying screens at 1000 nits, and a UL 50E Type 4X outdoor use rating. The SP5000X series is made to be suitable for multiple applications under harsh environmental conditions (3C3), including use in vehicles such as fire trucks, trains, and construction equipment; parking lots and gas stations; and the oil and gas industry. Customers can connect a J1939 communication module to Engine Control Units (ECU) to monitor and control electric generators, highway trucks, agriculture machines, and construction machines.
George Caudle, Pro-face America Offer Manager, says “With sunlight readable displays, UV protection with UL50E Type 4x NEMA rating, conformal coating, and vibration/shock resistance, this outdoor rated, rugged HMI is ready to provide data collection and remote maintenance solutions for eXtreme applications.”
