Backplane Systems Technology introduces APLEX Technology’s FABS Series
of food-grade, stainless steel, human machine interfaces (HMIs) designed to
meet the hygiene and safety standards of various industrial environments. Powered
by an Intel Celeron N2930 with 4GB DDR3L 1333MHz onboard memory, the HMIs range
in size from 7″ to 21.5″ and are equipped with 7H, anti-scratch, highly durable
PCT touch screens. The FABS Series also provides both panel and VESA mountable
options for convenient installation.

Focusing on process automation, this hygiene and food-standard HMI has been
developed to strictly meet the EN 1672-2 certification, improving reliability
and efficiency in the food, beverage and tobacco industry, as well as in the
pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industries. The front panel features SUS
304/316 grade stainless steel, is IP66/IP69K rated for water- and dust-proof
properties, and its perfect splash protection brings great cleanability,
avoiding contamination in the production process.

The FABS Series is able to bridge between Information Technology and
Operation Technology systems to deliver excellent performance in monitoring and
control applications, thanks to the fully featured inputs and outputs.

The I/O includes 2x COM, 2x GbE LAN ports, 2x USB3.0, and DC 9~36V power
input and comes with an operating temperature range of 0¡C~+50¡C, a further
option for wider range -20¡C~60¡C, with options to meet additional
functionality requirements available via APLEX TB-528 Series expansion cards.
It also supports an easily accessible 1x 2.5″ SATA3 HDD for rapid swapping as

communication network such as 3G/4G LTE/ Wi-Fi/ BT/ GPS/ RFID/ NFC/ POE.

The FABS Series
creates the best scale for upgrading the food and beverage industry to the era
of IIoT and Industry 4.0. Not only does it introduce a high performance,
reliable and efficient automation system, but it also meets stringent safety
and hygiene requirements.
