Touch screens and displays for plant control systems are useful for enclosures in industrial environments. Not only does BOPLA meet this development with its own series of enclosures, it also integrates the screens with an input function in all BOPLA standard enclosures.

With its BoTouch product range, the company offers a series of enclosures that enable the mainly standardised fitting of commercial displays in different sizes as well as resistive and capacitive touch screens. By using the technologies which have been developed for this purpose, the components can also be integrated in all standard enclosures. If the user requires, the touch screen can be combined with a conventional membrane keypad.

In some applications, eg, in medical technology or the foodstuffs sector, dirt-collecting edges are unacceptable. For these situations, the company also offers solutions with a continuous front membrane for resistive touch screens or cover glass for capacitive touch screens.

For mounting displays, BOPLA makes use of grouting technology developed in-house: a floating mounting compensates effectively for measurement and machining tolerances, as well as for the effects of thermal expansion or mechanical stresses. The selection of a suitable compound ensures that different requirements can be satisfied.

In addition, the company can use optical bonding to combine the touch and glass units. The liquid gluing of both components achieves an attractive look, and no air bubbles can form between the display element and the front glass pane. BOPLA’s own specialist team of experts deals with complex HMI projects.
