Strengths

The control station used in the VISION CHECK 2000 series systems is built to work in an industrial environment. It is equipped with precautions and construction techniques for a long-term operating life even in harsh environments or production situations with difficult environmental characteristics.

15 inch monitor with industrial touch screen

Industrial monitor with touch screen control. High brightness and contrast. Suitable for industrial environments and for applications where high reliability and durability are required. The monitor is mounted on a stand independent of the PC and can be easily and quickly replaced in case of damage.

Fanless and Diskless architecture

The use of the most modern heat dissipation techniques allows the elimination of the cooling fans (both CPU board and internal PC). All data storage and operating system media are based on FLASH SSD. The system is therefore also protected against vibrations or mechanical stress.

LED flasher

Anomaly detector with high brightness LED flashing light. As an option it is also possible to equip the control station with an acoustic siren. The flashing light function can be customized and can manage both warning and alarm conditions.

Tilting support

Tilting mechanical support for adjusting the inclination of the monitor and the controls (possibility of being installed on a table or on a pulpit or on a shelf). Option for connection to swinging arms and overhead control pulpits.

Standard display and control interfaces

The system is based on an industrial embedded PC. So in case of temporary malfunction of the monitor or the touch you can temporarily use a keyboard, a mouse or an office monitor. This solution allows you to continue production even in the event of a temporary malfunction.

Intuitive software developed for machine operators

The software installed on the VISION CHECK 2000 has been specially developed for industrial production applications. The main functions have been collected in easy-to-read synoptics with intuitive screens that can also be managed by non-expert personnel.

Front push button

Front push-button panel for controlling the main system functions without touching the touch screen monitor (cycle start, cycle stop, fault reset, emergency). The operator can therefore also operate with gloves or in the presence of liquid contaminants. The front buttons can also house an emergency button to be connected to the central control panel of the system.

Removable SSD

Removable SSD for quick and easy commissioning in case of changes or malfunction. The embedded PC has two different SSD slots and it is possible to manage both periodic backups and duplication of running programs.

Integrated PLC

Integrated PLC for the management of local I / O signals or for the connection to existing production lines and electrical panels. Possibility to manage local command peripherals such as pedals, remote push-button panels, light towers or acoustic signaling devices.

Industrial container in painted aluminum

Painted aluminum container with safety lock for access only to authorized personnel. The container is complete with gaskets that allow the use of the control station even in particularly dusty environments or in the presence of environmental contaminants.
