Enclosures & Mountings

The rugged MT-65 is the most flexible and customizable multifunction FALCON operator interface designed for machine-level operation in production areas, onboard ships, and in tank farms – suitable for use in hazardous areas, Zone 2, and at temperatures ranging between -20 °C up to +70 °C [-4 °F up to +158 °F].

The transflective, 134 x 40,4 mm (5.2 x 1.6") LCD monochrome display with LED-backlit technology ensures good readability, both indoors and outdoors. 16 function keys, 4 softkeys, and 23 alphanumeric and system keys allow custom configuration of the MT-65 to meet all the automation function requirements.

Display and keyboard are designed to meet the IP65 standard: a polyester film protects against dirt, dust and aggressive production atmospheres. The is available either as a front-mounted control panel module, and optionally available mounted into a plastic or stainless steel enclosure.

The MT-65 operator interface communicates with PLC over different protocols: serial / MPI / Profibus DP. The SPSPlusWIN software ensures fast and cost-effective project engineering.

Accessories can be tailored to meet specific application requirements, ranging from intrinsically safe Mifare card readers for access control in tank farms, Ex i barcode scanners for dosage control, up to field and connection cables, and the SPSPlusWIN software.
The MT-65 is also available as a complete package, including power supply, transmission unit and cabling.
