Small control units with a display have been around for a long time. A new feature is the possibility to read measured values and operating parameters from a distance. Another new feature is the ability to make direct entries via the touch panel. Thanks to the integrated I/O and graphics controller, stand-alone applications can be developed with this solution in no time at all.
In the simplest case, the smart touch displays of the uniTFT range from Electronic Assembly transform every switch into an intelligent tablet in mini format without additional hardware. Acoustic outputs are also possible. Numerous I/Os (3.3 V) as well as interfaces for PWM, SPI, I²C, RS-232 and USB allow the connection of any sensors and connection to external microcontrollers. The devices can count, calculate, compare, store and at the same time enable user-friendly input of parameters. Images, fonts, menus, audio files and log files are stored in the integrated flash memory.
The included uniTFTDesigner (Windows) programming tool has a wide range of graphics functions that make it easy to create animated touch and display functions for a modern user interface.
The uniTFTs are designed for installation. Electronic Assembly offers them in graduated screen sizes from 2.0“ to 4.3“ and larger. With a typical brightness of 1,000 cd/m², the IPS panels’ display is clearly visible even in bright lighting. Their AACS (All Angle Colour Stability) technology prevents contrast and colours from flipping at extreme viewing angles.
Developed for industrial applications, the uniTFTs are also ideally suited for installation in analysis systems or for use in home automation and high-quality wellness and kitchen appliances. Further information and various demo packs with different application examples are available on the manufacturer’s product homepage. Electronic Assembly guarantees comprehensive service directly from Germany as well as long-term availability.
