Touch Panel Display with front, back and side views

The Acuity Touch Panel Display is a serial device that accepts up to two RS232 inputs from Acuity brand laser sensors. These serial connections are physically accomplished by attaching the serial wires from the laser sensors to two-part Phoenix contact screw connector: MC 1.5/X-ST-3.81. 12-24 Volts are supplied to the unit through similar terminal connectors.

An intuitive menu sequence guides users through the configuration of the Touch Panel Display to function with the attached Acuity sensor model. Users may select the desired output units and the number of significant digits to be displayed. Through on-screen buttons, one can program offsets, perform tare functions and create alarm limits. Since the unit will accept serial inputs from TWO laser sensors, it can be used to perform dimensional measurement calculations automatically. Users must configure both sensors and designate the proper calibration to a known standard.

The distance is displayed in large, high-contrast characters. The relative ABSOLUTE position of the target is represented by a linear scale beneath the numerical output. The 256-color TFT viewing screen is approximately 4 inches (100mm) diagnolly.

Acuity recommends using Connectivity Kits with Touch Panel Displays to simply the connection of power and data. The Connectivity kit is a simple interface / junction box that will supply DC power to both the laser sensor and the Display with the included AC power adapter (100-240 VAC). The Display kit includes two meters of cable to connect power and serial data from the Connectivity Kit to the Phoenix contacts on the rear of the Display.

Touch Panel Display owners can update their firmware by connecting the unit's communication port to a PC computer via a USB cable (not included) and uploading the latest versions.

The Touch Panel Display includes one RS485 output which can be used to transmit distance and dimensional data to another device such as a PLC or a data acquisition system. Acuity™ Touch Panel Display data sheet
