Beijer Electronics Announces Release of Stainless Operator Panel for Food & Beverage and Pharmaceutical industries
Beijer Electronics adds a new model to its EXTER series of operator panels. The EXTER T150-st delivers intuitive HMI solutions, combining compact efficient functionality with award winning design. The thing that sets the EXTER T150-st apart from the rest is its sleek, stainless steel construction.
Durability in tough conditions
"The stringent regulations that apply throughout the Food & Beverage and Pharmaceuticals industries often require the use of powerful cleaning agents to satisfy the high standards of hygiene" explains Marcus Jillgart, Global Product Manager for Premium Segment HMI at Beijer Electronics. "Some acid-based cleaning agents can pose problems for other operator panels, with long term use leading to corrosion," he clarifies "the EXTER T150-st has an acid-resistant stainless steel construction, so it's perfectly suited to these kinds of tough conditions."
In addition, "this stainless steel operator panel has a recognizably streamlined appearance, with the surface and shape offering a number of advantages over other operator panels" continues Marcus. "The streamlined construction, and the fact that the panel has neither foil nor labels on the front, means that there are less minute cracks and lines in the surfaces where bacteria and other pathogens might otherwise hide, so it's much easier to keep clean" he adds. What's more, the front of the EXTER T150-st is waterproof, making it easy to clean with high-power water jets without the risk of water leaking into the operator panel itself.
Robust and aesthetic design
The exclusive design offered by the operator panel's brushed-steel finish makes it an elegant complement to any control area, affording a rugged and robust aesthetic feel to operations. The EXTER T150-st is perfect for utilization throughout the Food & Beverage, Pharmaceuticals and Oil & Gas industries, being robust, easy-to-clean, aesthetically pleasing and compliant with the rigorous hygiene demands and safety standards demanded.
It affords full interoperability with all major automation brands (more than 100 drivers are available) to satisfy all System Integrators specific needs.
