Series 600 KVM Systems:
R. STAHL HMI is the sole provider of a classic KVM solution that allows digital data communications to a terminal on site over copper cable or fiber optic, thus ensuring best image quality anytime image settings or adjustments are not necessary.
High-quality industrial LED-backlit monitors are availble in screen sizes of 19", 22", 24" and 24"WU, and in resolutions of 1280 x 1024 / 1680 x 1050 / 1920 x 1080, and 1920 x 1200 tested by the leading process control systems suppliers.
For the PC to terminal communication, the PC data is captured via VGA / DVI, PS2 / USB, and transferred point-to-point across up to 150 / 500 m [492 / 1,640 ft] (copper) or 10,000 m [33,000 ft] (fiber optic) to the terminal on site. This ensures a simple integration into the process control system. The HMI is ready to run, without any time-consuming driver or software installation.

Series 400 Panel PC Series:
Our rugged Panel PCs, suitable for hazardous areas, Zone 1, 2, 21, 22, are ready to run with pre-installed operating system. The multilingual operating systems (Windows Embedded / Windows-7 ultimate, etc.) come as closed systems, thus providing enhanced protection against external manipulations.
Designed as Open HMIs they are suitable for any type of visualization software, such as WinCC flexible®, Factory Talk View® or Vijeo Citect®. The powerful Intel®Atom 1.6 GHz processor is designed to meet any software performance requirements.
The Panel PC 400 series has been designed without any rotating parts, thus ensuring reliable 24/7 operation, with optional heater and protection screen even at temperatures ranging from -40 °C up to +55 °C [-40 °F up to +131 °F] (permanent operation +50 °C [+122 °F]). All Panel PCs can be fitted with the innovative SUNLIGHT READABLE display that blocks out distracting reflections and glare, thus ensuring best readability in bright sunlight.
To guarantee reliable and continuous operation, we have developed a special backup / recovery stick that quickly restores backup data in the rare case of a system failure.
