The TERMEX TX1107 operator panels by Pepperl+Fuchs are used primarily in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and oil- and gas-processing industries, in the mechanical engineering sector, as well as in food production. They offer flexible and inexpensive control of processes and machines in hazardous areas according to ATEX zone 1 and 21.
The compact operator panel is equipped with a 17.8cm (7 inch) display and features a high-performance CPU as well as a high-resolution color TFT display, optionally with touch functionality. Customized keyboard assignments can be individually implemented at the factory. The unit is designed for control panel installation, a mount housing made from stainless steel is additionally available. The network-capable TX1107 is equipped with the Windows 7 operating system. It is generally used in conjunction with a PLC. Comprehensive, integrated setup can also be performed remotely via the net.
Both an Ethernet and a USB interface are installed. Moreover, two module slots are available for customer-specific interfaces. As modules, two TTY interfaces (exi and exe) are initially available, via which e.g. a barcode handheld can be connected. No external barrier or power supply is necessary.
Beyond the display of process images, processes can be actively controlled with the TERMEX TX1107 operator panel. Operating pages can be conveniently created using the TERMEXpro planning software. TERMEXpro is a tool for developing applications that use standardized data types according to DIN EN 61131-3. It features a PLC simulator and permits the creation of projects in up to 32 languages. The project language resources can be exported and imported again into the project following external translation.
