QSI Corporation recently introduced the QTERM-Z60 economical graphic operator interface terminal. The QTERM-Z60 is the newest addition to QSI's family of award-winning Qlarity human machine interface (HMI) terminals and will be available in early-March 2005.
The QTERM-Z60 comes equipped with one switch-selectable serial port and can communicate via EIA-232, EIA-422 or EIA-485. The unit has a QVGA, 320x240 pixel, 256 color STN color LCD display and is viewable in most lighting conditions. Other industrial-grade features include 2 Mbytes flash / 16 Mbytes SDRAM; programmable speaker; 5 VDC / 200 mA output from the interface connector to power external devices like a Z-World single board computer. The QTERM-Z60 is ruggedized for use in harsh industrial environments (NEMA-4, CE certified housing).
The QTERM-Z60 uses an object-based graphic terminal programming language called Qlarity (pronounced Clarity). Designing a simple control panel interface or a complete stand-alone application has never been easier. The ability to use pre-defined objects, edit existing objects or author your own objects provides flexibility to the novice and expert alike. Qlarity Foundry, a PC-based design tool provides a Windows environment for screen creation, application simulation, debugging and downloading to the QTERM-Z60.
