Compact size, high performance – 4.3” ecomatDisplay for mobile machines

Essen, October 2023 - With the new compact ecomatDisplay with a screen diagonal of 4.3”, ifm electronic is setting new standards in the human-machine interface.

A high-resolution display and good readability even at extreme viewing angles or in difficult lighting conditions are just two of the advantages of the new display that are particularly important for use in mobile devices.

The most compact member of the ecomatDisplay family is the perfect choice when many interfaces and high performance are required and space is at a premium. As a human-machine interface, the 4.3-inch device with high-resolution display, 16 million colours and good readability ensures clear exchange of information in every situation.

Optimum visualisation programming
The interface equipment of the new ecomatDisplays is perfectly matched to the typical applications: The CAN bus, which is important for mobile machines, is always integrated with its various protocols. An Ethernet or USB interface is also available as an option. Six freely programmable, backlit function keys and a rocker switch with a central confirmation button are available for user input. All of these operating elements are easy to use even when wearing gloves. The 1.4 GHz ARM dual-core processor and 1 GB RAM provide enough power to implement even the most demanding visualisations. The user can program these very easily with CODESYS 3.5 and has access to a comprehensive ifm library of software modules. Alternatively, the Linux-based operating system can be used for visualisation via Qt.

The die-cast aluminium housing of the ecomatDisplay complies with the high IP67 protection rating. EMC, shock and vibration resistance, resistance to extreme temperature fluctuations, and other tests and certifications make the device ideal for use in construction equipment, machines for agriculture and forestry, in municipal vehicles or in machines for transport and logistics.
