Stainless operator panel for food and pharma

Beijer Electronics has added a new model to its EXTER series of operator panels. The EXTER T150-st delivers intuitive HMI solutions, combining compact efficient functionality with award winning design. The thing that sets the EXTER T150-st apart from the rest is its sleek, stainless steel construction.
EXTER is a series of advanced operator panels that combines cutting edge HMI technology with award-winning design. By providing built-in functionality to handle e.g. alarms, recipes, remote access and multiple languages, EXTER makes it easy for its customers to ensure full control of their machines and processes. The EXTER series includes keypad and touch screen panels with displays ranging from 3.5 to 15.0 inches.

Durability in tough conditions
“The stringent regulations that apply throughout the Food & Beverage and Pharmaceuticals industries often require the use of powerful cleaning agents to satisfy the high standards of hygiene” explains Marcus Jillgart, Global Product Manager for Premium Segment HMI at Beijer Electronics. “Some acid-based cleaning agents can pose problems for other operator panels, with long term use leading to corrosion,” he clarifies “the EXTER T150-st has an acid-resistant stainless steel construction, so it’s perfectly suited to these kinds of tough conditions.”

In addition, “this stainless steel operator panel has a recognizably streamlined appearance, with the surface and shape offering a number of advantages over other operator panels,” he continued. “The streamlined construction, and the fact that the panel has neither foil nor labels on the front, means that there are less minute cracks and lines in the surfaces where bacteria and other pathogens might otherwise hide, so it’s much easier to keep clean.” What’s more, the front of the EXTER T150-st is waterproof, making it easy to clean with high-power water jets without the risk of water leaking into the operator panel itself.

Robust and aesthetic design
The exclusive design offered by the operator panel’s brushed-steel finish makes it an elegant complement to any control area, affording a rugged and robust aesthetic feel to operations. The EXTER T150-st is perfect for utilization throughout the Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals and Oil & Gas industries, being robust, easy-to-clean, aesthetically pleasing and compliant with the rigorous hygiene demands and safety standards demanded.

Easy-to-implement
It affords full interoperability with all major automation brands (more than 100 drivers are available) to satisfy all System Integrators specific needs. Less than 10 minutes is all you need to get the first application running and a wide selection of ready-made objects and functions enables to create applications by just pointing and placing on the screen – it is possible see exactly how the final result will appear. Projects are created in a visual environment which gives a complete overview in the project manager so it is possible to see what is happening in the process.
