EAO showcasing innovative HMI switches, keypads, motion control and equipment cooling at Engineering Design Show 2019

Human Machine Interface (HMI) specialist EAO will be using its participation at the Engineering Design Show 2019 to showcase its latest HMI switches, CAN bus keypads and rotary controllers.

Visitors to Stand F20 will also be able to view the latest CAN bus LCD displays, encoders and rotary switches produced by US manufacturer Grayhill and cooling fans, stepper motors and drivers from Sanyo Denki. Product specialists will be on hand throughout the show to help visitors with their HMI queries.

A feature of the stand this year is EAO’s new Series 09 range of CAN bus keypads and rotary cursor controller joysticks. The new products are specifically designed for ‘functional safety’ and feature interchangeable ISO 7000 legends and programmable RGB hallo illumination. Visitors will also be able to examine samples of the new, compact Series 61 Emergency Stop switches especially designed for use in harsh environments and see the latest introductions in the popular Series 45 range of IP69K jet-wash-proof metal or plastic bodied industrial switches

Equipment Cooling Motion Control: EAO will again be hosting products from Sanyo Denki on Stand F20. Technical specialists will be on hand to show visitors how EAO can perform accurate airflow tests to determine the optimum cooling fan for a particular design. Engineers designing products for demanding environments shouldn’t miss the opportunity to see Sanyo Denki’s IP rated waterproof and long-life fans and/or check out the company’s extensive range of high airflow axial fans, which range from 36mm up to 200mm frame sizes. EAO specialists will be able to offer advice on the best Sanyo Denki stepper or servo motors for their motion control application including the latest SF24 Sanmotion hybrid stepper motors that offer up to 10% higher holding torque and produce 3dB(A) less noise. Visitors will also be able to explore the positioning and closed loop control improvements delivered by the optical encoders built into Sanyo Denki’s new 2H stepper motors.

Grayhill Innovations: Visitors to Stand F20 will also be able to see EAO’s application specialists demonstrate Grayhill’s ruggedised 5-, 7- and 10.4-inch LCD displays and also the company’s innovative Touch Encoder, an intuitive unit that integrates a LCD touch screen and a rotary encoder within a stylish, IP67 panel-mounted unit. The Touch Encoder is able to replace a plethora of pushbuttons, keypads and rotary switches on a control panel. The software development kit that complements the Grayhill Touch Encoder features numerous built-in widgets and graphics which users are able to customise for their application via an app.
