GT-C is an extremely powerful, modular, PC based, panel mounted control.
The application programs for the user interface screens and machine operating cycle (soft-logic) run on the GT-C.
GT-C is based on an Intel™ Celeron™ 400 MHz processor, which may be substituted with either a Pentium™III-M 800 MHz or a Pentium™M 1,1 GHz new generation processor equipped with Intel™ Centrino™ technology.
This particular architecture, based on the ETX standard, allows for ongoing upgrading of the product to keep pace with changes in technology.
All the processors are of the low voltage, low consumption type that do not require individual cooling fans, thus the GT-C can even be placed in severe environments.
The GT-C can be equipped with a solid state, mass storage memory of the DOM type, or a 2.5” HD for improved configuration depending on the application utilised.
Thanks to the full range of available ports, namely Ethernet, USB, serial, parallel, PS/2 etc., GT-C can connect with the various peripherals that are currently in use in the industrial field.
If to this we add the optional customised interfaces, and the standard PCI, PC104 and PCMCIA expansion slots, a particularly broad spectrum of connectivity is achieved.
Amongst the available interfaces are those for CAN, CANOpen, DeviceNet and Profibus, as well as the RS422/485 serial line expansions for Modbus.
The GT-C supports LCD TFT 10,4” and 12,1” colour displays, both offering 800x600 pixel resolution.
It is also possible to install an optional touch screen membrane.
The standard GT-C version is equipped with a keyboard panel with groups of programmable keys.
8 function keys under the display and 23 programmable keys for different screens; 20 keys are configured with customisable graphics on removable labels, 49 keys configured with status LEDs for management of machine commands, with customisable graphics on removable labels and 6 monitoring LEDs, as well as a customisable customer logo on removable labels.
For memorising machine data, the front panel is equipped with a USB connection for the Pen drive offered as one of the available accessories.
