New 6 inch operator interface

Color screen operator interface in a small body brings improved enhanced graphics at a lower price point

GE Intelligent Platforms announced the 6-inch Color-TFT model of the QuickPanel View Basic operator interface, ideal for small applications using point-to-point serial connectivity. QuickPanel View operator interfaces are known for their open and connected abilities to act as the bridge between the enterprise system and the plant floor.

The Basic QuickPanel’s small form factor allows it to fit on spaces where perhaps there is not as much room, or a large screen is not needed. The new color model will provide enhanced graphics, allowing for greater resolution on the screen, and a visual reference for the applications where color is needed or desired. In addition, the new screen increased off-angle visibility for better visuals when looking at it from different viewpoint. The low price point of the unit makes it desirable for companies looking to upgrade their current systems. The model has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, with 16 MB of flash memory and 16MB of DRAM memory and is available immediately.

“The QuickPanel View provides the tools required for today’s application needs,” said Hanuman Gadepalli, Operator Interface Manager for GE Intelligent Platforms. “Acting as the bridge between the enterprise system and the plant floor, QuickPanel View provides information that operators need to run the machines, and that management needs to run the business.”
