TechTerm HMI Terminal

Handheld HMI Terminals

Looking for a low-cost, flexible handheld terminal? Specifically designed for industrial applications, the TechTerm is a rugged and fully functional ASCII terminal. Menu-programmable function keys will store a total of fifteen selected characters. Your equipment can be used to directly control the terminal using private escape sequences, including cursor movement, appearance, key "click," and several different distinct signal tones from the built-in speaker.

Function key definitions and operating parameters are stored in non-volatile memory. Available I/O configurations include RS-232 and RS-422 as well as standard CMOS/LSTTL logic levels. If you do not want to rely on line-power, an optional rechargeable battery or the ability to use commercially available alkaline batteries are both available. A unique built-in retractable hanger provides the ability to easily hang the terminal (line-powered only).

Like all Two Technologies' products, the TechTerm is remarkably rugged. The case is molded from Cycolac ABS®, one of the most durable, chemical-resistant materials available on the market today. Securely framed and clamped in place, the keypad surface provides excellent splash resistance and prevents curling or peeling of the keypad overlay. Standard keypad layouts include 45 and 30 keys. Custom keypad configurations are available custom graphics.

Elastomeric: This keypad provides a great look and excellent tactile feel. Epoxy caps make this keypad extremely resistant to wear and suitable for all environments, except where petroleum-based chemicals (oil) are present.

Membrane: Best used when working in harsh conditions where chemical, dirt and liquids may be present.

Backlit: Best used in low light conditions.
