“Our operator panels are just as unique as the customer.” The specific area of application and the ambient conditions are crucial. We analyze and scrutinize these, particularly if conditions are extreme,” says Executive Vice President Thorsten Behr of the product strategy at Phoenix Contact HMI-IPC Technology GmbH.

Is the display visible in sunlight? Are the housing surfaces resistant to chemical influences? Is the device suitable for very high or very low temperatures? Does it work even at high humidity? Does it correspond to high levels of protection, up to IP69K? Is it shockproof? Does it meet the highest hygiene requirements? Thorsten Behr: “These, and many other such questions, are just the sort of thing we ask ourselves on a daily basis. And we find the answers. Challenge us.”
