ARM Cortex-A9 Panel Mount 7.0″

To enable panel mount installation into your device, we offer our single-board computers for HMI applications as matched turnkey systems including touch display and housing. The panel mount HMI is installed from the front into a cutout in the front panel. The system as a whole can then be fixed with screws from the inside or with clamping screws versus the front panel. This design type features extreme robustness and is particularly suitable for quick installation into control panels or consoles.

It is also easy to mount as it can stand larger cut tolerances. Pre-assembled seals allow high IP protection classes without big effort. On request, Cover glass or foil can be individually printed to the customers’ needs. The SANTARO 7.0 BX PCT 1K offers CPU Type i.MX6Solo and i.MX6Dual, display size 7.0″ with a resolution of 1024 x 600 Pixel , used touch technology is projected capacitive multitouch.
