Uticor is well-known for their popular ToughPanel HMI, prized by operators for ease of programming.

A simple interface cuts out hours of engineering and design time. High-quality graphics and SCADA features come to life on bright anti-glare screens.

And all Uticor devices offer rugged reliability. Designed to be installed into harsh industrial environments, ToughPanel HMIs are shock, vibration, and high-temperature resistant.

Uticor ToughPanel HMIs - built for industry.

"The ability to offer high-quality touch screen HMIs for factory automation will be invaluable for our customers in the manufacturing and food & beverage industries in NSW and VIC.

Uticor solutions can handle all the standard communication protocols. They're designed to get up and running fast, and they can talk to most major PLCs, ensuring suitability for a wide range of operations."

Peter Hudson, Customer Success Manager - East, Pacific Automation.

Also available from Uticor: a range of industrial LED message signs.

Also known as LED marquees, these large displays are a common sight at airports and on factory floors. With red or tri-colour LEDs displaying large, easy-to-read characters, signs can be read from up to 122m away.

Designed to be widely compatible with existing control systems, EZAutomation signs can communicate via Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Profibus, Devicenet, Modbus RTU, or serial. They're low weight, low power consumption, and comfortable operating in ambient temperatures up to 60°C.
