Rugged Operator Interfaces

  • Vision 3

    The Vision 3 is our third rugged operator interface generation, available as a single core processor variant and as an advanced Plus variant with 4-Core-CPU and an enhanced set of interfaces.

  • eVision² 7.0

    TTControl’s eVision² 7.0 is the smaller 7-inch version of our family of highly robust operator interfaces for the off-highway and mobile machinery market.

  • Vision 305

    Vision 305 is the smallest member of TTControl's robust operator interface family. It offers an excellent price-performance ratio thanks to its compact size and comprehensive functionalities.

The Operator Interface eVision² Family: Highly Robust HMIs

TTControl’s eVision² product family sets new standards for an operator interface with respect to maximum resolution, programmability with CODESYS® 3.x, and user friendliness, for example through the ability to display and create PDF®documents.

The modularly designed operator terminals are available in a large 10.4-inch variant with touchscreen (eVision² 10.4) and a smaller 7-inch version (eVision² 7.0).

Operator Interface Features

Both rugged HMI panels have a powerful built-in display controller and are perfectly suited for the harsh conditions in off-highway vehicles due to their aluminum die-cast housing (10.4″) or aluminum front (7″). The operator interface devices are designed to become the central operator panel in mobile equipment such as forest harvesters, excavators or large drilling machines.

The eVision² human machine interfaces act as the master within a sophisticated, networked control system, giving the operator the most ergonomic control over a maximum number of functions.

The eVision² operator panels offers optimized visualization of the various in-vehicle parameters like speed, temperature and sensor data in real time.

Object-oriented programming concepts allowing fast and easy adaption of the HMI panel to different languages. Specific additions to the operator interface like transparency effects, graphic library and unicode fonts, for e.g. Chinese characters, are providing the ability to fully customize the display to customer needs and to differentiate from competition. The TTControl Visualization Manager is available as CODESYS plug-in with PDF viewer and creator, camera picture support and optimized for utilizing CPU hardware acceleration. 3D effects like transparency and tilting, as well as dynamic effects like animations are fully supported by the operator interfaces.
