Acuity Laser Touch Panel Display
The Acuity™ 7” Touch Panel Display is a stand-alone industrial PC interface for use with Acuity laser distance sensors. These fully enclosed units replace panel meters, alphanumeric displays and analog controllers by providing a modern interface through a full-color LCD and touch screen.
The Touch Panel Display communicates with one or two Acuity sensors using RS-232 serial interfaces. The touch panel can be easily configured using on-screen buttons to display, scale, and even graph the sensors’ distance outputs. Relative dimensions can be measured using a tare function. With two Acuity sensors, the touch panel can serve as a thickness gauge. Limits can be programmed into the touch panel to give a visual warning to operators that the target is too close or too far or too thick or too thin. With a USB flash drive, measurements can be logged and saved for further analysis.
- Eliminates the need for software program development to manipulate and display dimensional data from Acuity sensors
- Single laser, dual laser, or dual laser thickness mode
- Support for Acuity single point lasers: AR100, AR200, AR500, AR550, AR700, AR1000, AR2000, AR2500, AR3000.
- Accepts user-defined distance offsets and offers a TARE function through the touch screen interface.
- Display units for meter, foot decimal, foot fraction, inch decimal, inch fraction, cm, mm.
- Average number of readings as rolling average or batch average.
- Upper and lower warnings and limits. When measurement exceeds warning, display turns orange. When measurement exceeds limit, display turns red.
- List view and graph view to show latest 50 samples.
The display comes standard with touch panel hardware, Acuity software, and power supply. The following are potential additions:
The Touch Panel Display is designed for use with Acuity™ brand sensors. We suggest connecting the sensor(s) to the Display via the Acuity Connectivity Kit. The Connectivity kit makes it simple to bring the RS232 serial interface between the Touch Panel Display and the sensor. The touch panel display is built with (2) RS-232 COM ports (DB-9 connector). To connect the sensor(s) readings to the TDP, simply connect the RS232 cable from the connectivity into the DB9 connector (Port A for one sensor, Port A&B for two sensors) of the TDP.
Please refer to the connectivity kit guide for wiring instructions from the sensor to the connectivity kit.
