Ultra-robust HMI devices with all-round IP67 protection

Turck HMI

Human-machine interfaces are a key component when applied to industrial automation. 

Turck’s new HMI series enables cabinet-free operating and installation concepts with complete all-round IP67 protection at operating temperatures between -20 and +55°C

With its high degree of protection, the TXF700 series allows for flexible and slim mounting since, unlike previous solutions, it no longer requires installation inside protective housings or control cabinets. 

The brilliant TFT displays are protected by a glass front and feature a capacitive touch screen supporting multi-touch capability and gesture control.

This enables the latest operating concepts from the world of smartphones and tablets to be brought into the rugged environments of industrial automation.

The TXF700 HMIs are available in display sizes from 5” to 21.5” and with a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. 

Turck has further expanded their extensive IP67 portfolio with the new HMI/PLC series.

The devices can be used in machine and system building applications, the packaging industry, as well as in the intralogistics and mobile equipment sectors, but not where Ex protection or hygienic installation is required.

The TXF700 can be used in simple visualisation applications but also, if required, as an IIoT gateway or edge controller with Turck’s TX VisuPro.

Besides the conventional HMI protocols for connecting to controllers, such as Siemens, Beckhoff or Rockwell, TX VisuPro also supports MQTT or OPC-UA as server and client.

The TXF700 HMIs can communicate simultaneously with up to eight protocols. This gateway function therefore also enables data to be exchanged between different controllers or terminal devices.

Turck is one of the leading manufacturers in industrial automation. As a specialist in sensor, fieldbus, connection and interface technology and also human-machine interfaces and RFID systems, they offer efficient solutions for factory and process automation.

With our state-of-the-art production facilities in Germany, Switzerland, the USA, Mexico and China, and as a family-owned company, they are able to react quickly and flexibly to the demands of local markets.
