Garz & Fricke introduces the TANARO 7.0 BX PCT, the latest evolution of its existing family of Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs). The TANARO 7.0 BX PCT is the first HMI based on Garz & Fricke's new TANARO board. Equipped with the latest processor generation (NXP i.MX 8M Mini ARM Cortex), the solution is particularly suitable for applications that require high performance. This fully integrated HMI solution in panel-mount format can be used both for user interaction in the actual application and for central control. The applied board is the result of a joint product development between Garz & Fricke and processor module specialist Keith & Koep, which has been part of the Garz & Fricke Group since the beginning of 2020. The new HMI solution will be available by March 2021; further HMIs based on this new board are planned.
The seven-inch Panel Mount HMI with its robust design can be easily integrated into a product. Equipped with the latest SBC model from the Garz & Fricke Group, it features the modern i.MX 8M Mini processor generation from NXP. Manufactured in the modern 14 nm FinFET process, this processor offers high performance with low power consumption and low operating temperature - even at extremely high performance requirements. The display features high resolution with 1024x600 pixel and a capacitive touchscreen for advanced user interaction. Multiple connectivity options such as RS232, RS485, CAN multiple USBs as well as 1GB Ethernet and integrated Wi-Fi/Bluetooth® make the TANARO 7.0 BX PCT a future-proof HMI solution and perfect operating unit. The integrated MIPI-CSI camera interface also offers the option to integrate camera solutions. This also allows applications such as image processing and evaluation to be implemented without any problems.
The TANARO 7.0 BX PCT is a general purpose HMI for use in various professional products such as IoT devices. It is designed for use in rough environments with particularly high requirements and is perfectly suited for user interaction as well as for control tasks. Like all Garz & Fricke HMIs, the TANARO 7.0 BX PCT can be customized to provide an optimal solution for any application.
