Customize a Graphics Display in Under a Minute
Lascar Electronics has released two new smart graphics displays configurable using the company's award winning software platform, PanelPilot. The new SGD 28-M (2.8" screen) and SGD 35-M (3.5" screen) displays join the existing SGD 24-M (2.4" screen) to bring the number of compatible displays available from Lascar Electronics to three.
Programming of all displays in the range is straight-forward using Lascar's PanelPilot software. After downloading PanelPilot, users can connect any of the displays to the computer via the USB port. PanelPilot uses a simple Windows interface to walk users through the configuration of the display starting with the selection of a meter style from over 40 standard digital and analog options including conventional 3½ digit voltmeter applications to analog style gauges, trend graphs and touchscreen options.
Once selected, PanelPilot allows the user to select custom colors, text labels, splash screens and input voltage scaling using the software, before saving the configuration and uploading to the display through the USB cable. All three available displays are equipped with touch screen functionality, dual analog inputs, an operating voltage of 4-30V and a voltage measurement range of 0-40V.
Downloadable from www.panelpilot.com , the latest version of the software automatically checks for new configurations launched on panelpilot.com and adds these to the selectable list on the computer at the click of a button.
The SGD 28-M and SGD 35-M are available for purchase immediately from Lascar Electronics at a cost of $110 and $130 respectively. Significant discounts are available for higher volumes.
