In many environments where automation would be very beneficial, e.g. for worker’s health, conditions are thoroughly adverse for machinery and sensitive embedded computers. Moreover, systems must be usable with protective gloves.
A night design serves for safely operating the device at night. The display brightness and key lighting can be adjusted in the application program according to the ambient brightness. With the help of a digital potentiometer, the user navigates to the respective applications. A MicroSD card slot allows for data exchange or storage. There are two independently functioning CAN busses available for communication with remote peripherals.
CANopen and SAE J1939 are offered as standard protocols. For data exchange, the BTM 012 has been equipped with an Ethernet interface, a USB port and four video inputs (multiplexed).
