The six new handheld operating devices in the MP40 and MP50 lines of the B&R Mobile Panel come with 3.8 in. QVGA LCD b/w display or a 6.5 in. VGA TFT color display. Applications determine the operating element used, which include a joystick, handwheel, override potentiometer, key switch, or illuminated button. Additionally, numerous safety functions are integrated into the devices.
The processors are based on an Intel PXA 270 CPU with 128 MB flash memory and 256 MB DRAM. The Windows CE operating system offers a flexible foundation for a wide range of applications types, such as mobile thin clients, direct connections to the controller, and open SCADA systems. The double-walled panels with IP65 protection have integrated interfaces such as USB and Ethernet 10/100.
