As the interface from the operator to the manufacturing equipment, production-line control panels play a critical role in maintaining productivity across industries. Powered by ST’s high-performance STM32 microcontrollers, Erhardt+Leimer’s innovative control panels set new standards in ease of use, increasing the speed and efficiency of the manufacturing process, minimizing material waste and maximizing output quality.
The RT4008 control panel with a 320 x 240mm LCD color touch screen, soft and hard keys, and self-explanatory graphics runs on ST’s STM32 F-2 microcontroller. This microcontroller device combines superior processing power, high efficiency, and convenience of the industry-standard ARM® Cortex™ -M3 processor with abundant peripheral sets and large program (Flash) and data (SRAM) memory.
Erhardt+Leimer’s newest control panel primarily targets web-guiding systems – essential components of factory automation in paper, textile, and rubber manufacturing, as well as in conveyor and transporting systems. Web guiding systems keep the processed material in a defined position and guarantee an exact input feed into the production process even at the highest processing speeds.
