Intelligent HMI displays for mobile machines
Robustness is clearly the focus of display applications in mobile work machines. The VSX displays meet this requirement through the high quality of the housings, the resistance of the electronics to electromagnetic influences, and a touch screen, which can be implemented in GFG (glass-film-glass) technology if required. The high quality and unique evaluation technology of the touch screen combines the advantages of proven resistive touch screen with the possibility of reaching an input according to SIL2. The touch screen also makes it possible to use it even with gloves or wet fingers. The MTTH (mean time to half of brightness) of the displays is 100,000 hours. For outdoor use, the light intensity of 1000 cd / m² is important, as it guarantees good readability in sunlight. In addition, the mounting options panel and RAM mount are supported for flexible installation in the cab.
All members of the VSX display family are based on the same Cortex A9 DualCore processor architecture and can be configured widely via expansion boards. All VSX displays are programmable with the same DevKit development and support tool. Together with different display sizes and operating variants, this ensures easy scalability within the family and reusability of software. 35 ready-made widgets, the majority of which includes SIL2 support, allow for implementation of applications within a very short time. DevKit is used for the graphic design as well as the implementation of communication and control tasks. In addition, the graphic design may also be seamlessly transferred to iOS or Android platforms.
