Fuji Electric Launches Advanced Programmable Operator Interface

 December 1, 2020

Fuji Electric has launched of the MONITOUCH X1 Series of programmable operator interfaces that feature the broad FA and IT connectivity and flexibility to digitize facilities. It can facilitate the implementation of smart factories that effectively utilize data and uses Windows to perform as a gateway from the production sites to the IT systems. The MONITOUCH X1 Series contributes to efficient communication between the factory and management office or cloud system.

Every day, production sites collect and process a huge amount of data, including production plans, facility utilization rates, and energy consumption, with the aim of improving productivity and saving energy. In the past, this data was generally managed and handled by basic systems installed in offices, but in recent years, there has been a growing need for edge computing to reduce the load on networks and information processing with personal computers and other information processing terminals installed near production lines.

Programmable operator interfaces collect data from control equipment such as PLCs and inverters, as well as temperature and pressure measurement equipment, and are used to display operating status and to operate equipment.

The MONITOUCH X1 Series is available in two models, the 15.6″ widescreen FHD 1,920 x 1,080 and the 12.1″ widescreen WXGA 1,280 x 800. The newly launched MONITOUCH X1 Series is equipped with Windows, which is used in the OSs of many information processing terminals. This allows a single unit of this product to handle many tasks that used to be performed by information processing terminals, in addition to its programmable operator interface functions.

  • Drives expansion of on-site business areas and increased work efficiency
  • Supports communication standards that are in high demand overseas: compatible with OPC UA, which is in demand for industrial networks in Europe, China, and other areas overseas, and with MQTT, which is suitable for cloud computing.
  • Improved visibility and operability: equipped with a high-speed CPU, a high-resolution LCD, and a PCAP (capacitive type) touch switch for improved visibility and quick operation
  • Industry-leading number of connectable equipment models: can be connected not only to FE products, but also to many models of equipment used at production sites, such as PLCs, inverters, and measuring equipment. With about 900 types of compatible models, it’s number one in the industry (according to research by FE).
  • 15.6″ Widescreen: FHD 1,920 x 1,080
  • 12.1″ Widescreen: WXGA 1,280 x 800
