With the BT1000, we offer an operator panel for complete machine operator control. Seven pre-cut openings for additional hardware pushbuttons and an area for the emergency stop button avoid the trouble of subsequent front panel machining. The BT1000 can be used in harsh industrial environments without causing EMC problems due to its aluminum front panel and zinc-plated steel plate housing. Thanks to tight front panel installation, the BT1000 achieves a degree of protection of IP65. The marker strips are inserted from the sealed inner side of the device which ensures that this degree of protection is maintained. Extensive tests have shown that the BT1000 is both reliable and suitable for use in industrial applications. Mechanical stability, EMC, temperature and climatic tests ensure that the high level of quality of the operator panels is maintained.
The monochrome VGA display features CFL background lighting offering high readability from various angles of view. A resolution of 640 x 480 pixels allows for a spacious display of texts and graphics.
Exchangeable interface modules allow ease of adaptation to various interface standards and various bus systems. The protocol drivers can be loaded through the programming software. Therefore, it is not necessary to order protocol-specific models of the BT1000.
