Thread Starter

D. Zink

The Touchpanel shall be at least 10.4" (640x480)with min. 32MB RAM and Ethernet-port.
The WinCE preinstallation shall contain MSSONG.TTF for chinese character display.
Any suggestion is welcome, thanks.

You can consider the following Touch Panels from SIEMENS, all of these has WindowsCE and also support chinese character set

1) MP370 Touch
12" TFT Screen with 256 Colours.
2) PanelPC 670
15" TFT Touch Screen.
3) TP 170A/TP170B
5.7" STN Screen.

In addition to these panel you would require Protool/Pro V5.2 for configuration of HMI Screens(Run timr is integrated in the above mentioned panels)

Details can be found at www.ad.siemens.de/hmi.

Two models come to mind - Allen-Bradley RAC6182 and Ann Arbor paneLink. The paneLink has been OEM'ed by GE, Intellution, and a number of other companies. You should be able to load any font you want on these devices, but I don't know that you can get your Chinese font preloaded.

Siemens has just the device. It is called the MP270 with ProTool as the HMI. You can purchase the optional Chinese character package. If you have any questions call me and I can direct you to the right person.
