Wireless, Multi-touch & Safety Functions: The HGW 1033

The wireless mobile panels of the HGW 1033-series from SIGMATEK pull out all the stops in operating comfort. First, through wireless data transfer, the meter-long cables in the production hall have been eliminated. Second, the mobile HMI has a 10.1-inch multi-touch display (PCT) that is suitable for industrial applications and offers a wide range of visualization options and an intuitive operating concept. Last but not least, optional Safety functions ensure safe and easy monitoring and controlling within the harsh industrial environment.
For the industrial wireless operating solution, SIGMATEK uses a 2-component system consisting of the HGW 1033 and the base station BWH 001. Both units are equipped with high-performance EDGE2 Technology processor, which enables sophisticated visualization and operating applications. The base station also serves as a gateway with docking and charging functions. To ensure the quality of the signal transmission in the machine environment, the 2-component system communicates on two frequencies (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) with separate antennas.
The modern HMI is available with these Safety functions: Confirmation button, key switch and an active-illuminated emergency stop. When inactive, the button appears gray. An illuminated red mushroom button indicates that the HGW 1033 is correctly linked to the system and the Safety elements are ready to use. As with the function-oriented data, the Safety data is transmitted via the standard WLAN network but according to the Black Channel Principle. SIGMATEK has therewith laid the corner stone for future visualization tasks. In modern production facilities, numerous machines and systems operate under the supervision of a single operator and for this person, it is extremely useful to have the collected information clearly organized on a mobile and wireless operating interface that is always within reach. A safe 7-segment display for machine identification is integrated.
The integrated battery back, guarantees 2 hours of continuous use without having to recharge the mobile panel. The wireless panel supports OPC-UA communication and includes a USB interface as standard. Optionally, an RFID reader can be integrated to authorize access levels for example. 

Fully equipped, the HGW 1033 weighs 1,350 g including Safety elements and battery pack – it therefore fits light in hand compared to other handheld devices and thereby ensures low-fatigue operation.
Furthermore, three optional rotary encoders are now available for the HGW 1033. Thanks to the rotary encoders on the front, machines and systems can always be kept in view during set-up operation. Thus, comfortable and almost blind operation can be achieved.
On the grip unit located on the back, there are magnets that allow the HMI to be placed on the machine component without a mount – a practical added feature.

While in setup mode, do not leave your machine unattended. Optional rotary encoders on the front of the HGW enable almost blind operation.
