Turck expands its HMI portfolio with new models for food and beverage applications and a very bright display

HMI/PLC/Edge Controller for Food Industry and Outdoor Areas

Turck now offers special versions of its HMI/PLC devices for applications in the food and beverage industry and for use in bright ambient light

The TX700FB HMI/PLC device series is designed for applications in the food industry (FB for Food&Beverage). The also new TX700HB (High Brightness) version offers better sunlight readability in applications with direct sunlight incidence. Like the devices of the TX100, TX200, TX500 and TX700 series, both variants can not only be used for visualization but can also be used with Turck's TX VisuPro without CODESYS as IIoT gateway or edge controller.

Your Benefits

  • Cost reduction as separate cloud gateway or edge controller can be omitted
  • Fast intuitive operation thanks to gesture control
  • Reduced complexity in inventory management, as numerous protocols and master/slave functions are mapped

IIoT-Multitool: Communication via eight protocols in parallel

In addition to the classic HMI protocols for connection to controllers, such as those from Siemens, Beckhoff or Rockwell, TX VisuPro also supports MQTT or OPC-UA as server and client. The devices can communicate with up to eight protocols in parallel. This gateway function therefore also allows data to be exchanged between different controllers or end devices. 

Front side protection class IP69K for high pressure cleaning 

The FB devices were developed to comply with hygienic design requirements (DIN EN1672-2, EHEDG/FDA 21 CFR 177.2006) and come with a stainless steel front with a polyester coating. The device front has been designed with protection to IP69K so that the devices are waterproof at high pressure up to 80 °C. The FB products are also resistant to acids and chemicals.

Minimized reflections for outdoor applications

The HB devices with their extra bright display up to 800 Cd/m² are particularly suitable for outdoor applications. The displays are manufactured with liquid bonding (LOCA) – a screen bonding process that improves screen contrast and increases brightness through reduced reflection and refraction. The HB devices with the full metal housing are resistant to mechanical influences.
