New HMIs for maritime applications

Phoenix Contact has further developed its portfolio of maritime HMIs for demanding use on ships. The latest generation of the TPM 3000 series is equipped with the powerful Cortex-A8 1 GHz processor, which supports faster display refresh and response times. The new display sizes (4.3", 5.7", and 12.1" in 16:9) also give system planners even more choice. The products have two buttons on the front of the front plate for dimming the display brightness, an external horn and a floating output on the rear for connecting external signal generators. All devices are compatible with the previous models in terms of their cutout and have important marine approvals. The ETH (10/100) and USB 2.0 interfaces can be used for the versatile networking of maritime HMIs. Additional optional interfaces are RS-232, RS-485, and CAN. The product range for maritime devices now includes display sizes 4.3"/5.7"/7"/10.4"/12.1" (4:3 and 16:9)/15". In addition, a device version without dimmer buttons, horn, and floating output is also available in 9" and 15.4" display sizes.
