Display computer launched

CrossControl, which manufactures display computers, controllers and HMI solutions for machine control, has launched a 7’’ display computer: the CCpilot V700. The company is targeting the release at industrial and machine markets.
CrossControl said the CCpilot V700 is designed to address challenges created by the rapid increases in software content in modern mobile machines, using Human-Machine interaction technology and on-board computing power. It has an iMX8 core which the company says gives the display roughly three times the graphics processing performance compared to displays based on the common and older iMX6 core.
According to CrossControl, advanced graphics frameworks enable the display computer to deliver dynamic and intuitive instrumentation and guidance functionality. It also supports new software frameworks that enable advanced operator assistance functionality – such as displaying multiple video streams, object recognition and augmented reality. The platform also has inherent support for functional safety, the company added.
The V700 also includes the option to develop applications in CODESYS, a soft PLC which offers pre-packaged support for fieldbus management, control logics and visualisation.
An optically bonded display features an anti-glare coating and over 800 cd/m2 so that it can be read in sunlight. The touch calibration allows the display to be used in any conditions and even enables interaction while the user is wearing work gloves, said CrossControl.
