More readable operator interface panel

Model G306A G3 operator interface panels from Red Lion Controls Inc., York, Pa., use a TFT active-matrix display for greater contrast, brightness, and overall readability, over a wide viewing angle.

The 5.7-in., 256-color QVGA 320 X 240-pixel LCDdisplay has three front-panel LED indicators and a five-button keypad for on-screen menus. The panels come standard with an Ethernet port, USB programming port, support for up to five high-speed serial ports, integrated protocol converter, built-in Web server, standard CompactFlash socket, and IT-ready data logging. Users enter data through a resistive analog touchscreen or front-panel keypad. An onboard 8-Mbyte Flash memory can be configured using the company's free Crimson Programming Software. Applications include PLCs, PCs, drives, PID controllers, and other equipment. MD
