Published: 9 April 2019 - Sarah Mead
The PanelPilot range from Lascar Electronics is a unique series of smart graphic displays that enable the creation of fully bespoke interfaces without writing a line of code.
The PanelPilot ACE is a unique platform ideal for rapid development of touchscreen machine interfaces and system monitoring displays. Available in two sizes, ACE uses software that allows app development using an intuitive drag and drop interface. ACE display units accept inputs including 4-20 mA analogue, direct digital I/O, RS485, CANBUS and MODBUS. There are also digital alarm outputs and a built-in PWM generator.
The free Design Studio software contains powerful tools such as PID, maths and logic builders, multi-channel data logging and graphing.
Next is the versatile M series. This range includes versions that are suitable for voltage or current inputs, and also products that are sealed to IP67. The M series are programmable panel meters featuring dual analogue inputs, alarm outputs and colour touchscreen displays. Configured using the free PanelPilot M Software, there over 50 app templates available including bar-graph, tank level, analogue style and trend graphs.
The newest addition is the SGD 21-B, a low cost, low power, sunlight readable, single channel voltmeter with a sleek monochrome e-paper display. The unit is configured with the free PanelPilot B software. Modest power requirements make this display ideal for use in battery-powered handheld instruments.
