This HMI Touch Screen Computer is VESA compatible and has a smaller form factor than widescreen models, meaning it can be mounted virtually anywhere.
The iPC S19 is a powerful HMI computer built to withstand the conditions in a manufacturing environment. With support for industrial communication protocols such as CAN bus, it can accommodate the needs of many applications.
The iPC S19 has two responsive screen options; a multi-touch PCAP screen or a resistive touch screen that can still function even with leather and rubber gloves. Either one makes this a great option to use as an HMI touch screen computer. The VESA mount capabilities and small footprint allow you to mount this unit virtually anywhere to use as a controller for automated processes.
The iPC S19 was engineered from the ground up with reliability in mind. We use industrial grade components and fanless cooling technology to ensure maintenance free performance. Our IP65 rating means the sealed front bezel protects against liquid and dust ingress, making sure internal components are safe in any environment. Our units are also rated for extreme temperature variances, meaning this unit can be used in a cold storage environment or a hot factory floor without failure.
We looked at a number of different manufacturers before choosing Cybernet. Ultimately, they were able to customize their units to our specific needs, and their sales and support staff worked with our engineers throughout the process to get the solution right.

It isn't just the internal components that have been engineered to withstand the toughest environments. Cybernet uses a chemically hardened, tempered touch glass on all of our all-in-one PCs that can withstand significant punishment without cracking. This is especially useful on industrial panel PCs that are used in warehouses or on a manufacturing line. Having a durable, yet responsive touch glass will cut down on maintenance and repair costs over the life of your computer.
The iPC S19 HMI computer can be equipped with a number of optional features. A 2D barcode scanner can be installed, allowing workers to scan inventory or speed up order picking. Available built-in RFID allows every unit to be used as a time card terminal or for quality assurance as product moves down the assembly line. Even install an MSR reader for ID badges to control access to certain areas of a facility or to limit access to use machinery.
Error-proof processes, improve efficiency, enhance security, and get a better handle on inventory with these add-on features.

Simply put, HMI is a visual surface or display that allows humans to interact with machines. The most common type of HMI systems would include a screen or a computer for humans to control the machine which would also display data, information, or feedback from the machine.
A good example of a human machine interface in a factory setting is a computer controlling a conveyor belt. Workers can use the computer to change the speed of the belt or stop it, and the computer shows them data such as speed, count, and other useful statistics.
SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is a type of computer system that gathers and displays information pertaining to a system of machines in real time. It consists of an HMI, PLCs, and equipment.
The main difference is that SCADA is a remote monitoring system but an HMI panel has to be connected to the machines it controls. A SCADA unit includes a built-in HMI, making HMI a required component of SCADA while HMI does not have to be a part of a SCADA system. Both systems usually have touch screen capabilities.
Resistive touch screens technology is constructed from two layers of glass separated by gaps. When pressure is applied to the screen, the layers touch each other which triggers voltage to pass through. That makes a resistive touch screen responsive to gloves, pens, stylus, or any object pressed against it. The biggest downside is that it's usually only able to recognize a single point of touch. Worthy to note that resistive touch screens are pressure-based and will sense objects such as pens and styluses, while PCAP will only detect conductive objects.
PCAP stands for Projected Capacitive Touch Technology, and it's a variant of surface capacitive touch. PCAP touch screen uses a glass surface which makes it resistant to scratches and harsh cleaning agents. It works by maintaining an electrical charge across the contact surface that is monitored by a touch controller. When a finger touches the glass, the touch controller is able to detect the difference in charge and detect the touch. One of the biggest advantages is the ability to use multiple fingers or objects at the same time which allows things like swiping and pinching to zoom on the screen.
If you're looking for an industrial HMI panel you definitely need to consider durability. HMI Computers are used on factory floors and more often than not in harsh environments. There are minimum requirements you should look for when considering an industrial HMI panel.
Look for an industrial HMI panel that's rated IP65 since liquid and dust can get into the panel and ruin the electronics. An IP65 rating means the bezels are sealed well and won't allow dust particulates or water to get in even if sprayed directly on the panel.
Fanless cooling also helps keep dust out since there is no fan to suck in dust from the air. It also adds durability by eliminating moving parts and weak links in the panel.
