X2 extreme Rugged HMIs

X2 extreme - Rugged HMI panels

X2 extreme HMI panels are certified by all major classification societies. Designed to perform in rugged outdoor environments and in hazardous areas where gases, vapors and dust are present. Extended environmental capabilities include operating temperatures from -30°C to +70°C, high vibrations and high-pressure wash-downs.

X2 extreme HMI panels are available in 7, 12 and 15 inches, all in 3 versions: Panel mount standard and high-performance versions, and fully sealed high-performance versions. All high-performance versions offer high brightness display and optional integrated CODESYS PLC functionality.

X2 extreme furthermore offers cost-effective, rugged only versions (RO) for applications where no marine or hazardous certifications are needed, and certified only versions (CO) including marine or hazardous certifications for applications where no rugged capabilities are needed.

X2 extreme also include a number of web HMI panels perfect for enterprises and users who wants to utilize HTML5 web technologies in industrial environments. The X2 web HMI panels enable visualization of the same content across different target platforms such as mobile, tablet, pc, etc. without any conversion or re-engineering.
