Magelis GTU | the fully configurable HMI


The fully configurable Magelis GTU from Schneider Electric, allows users and OEMS to configure a high performance HMI to their exact requirements.  The interchangeable display screen and control box are selected from a range of options and just snapped together.


The high-resolution screens deliver a crystal-clear view, allowing operators to access more information through Microsoft Windows-based tools, including Office viewer, Adobe viewer, Internet Explorer, multimedia player, etc.


If the user later needs to upgrade the screen, they can change the display size and type and replace it without any special tools. The application will be resized automatically. The GTU also helps keep the number of in inventory items to the minimum.


Operating the Magelis GTU is as easy to use as a tablet or phone through its intuitive menus, and unique industrial-grade multi-touch functionality.With modular GTU, maintaining an HMI application is also easy using the Vijeo XD software, with easy view of trends and alarms. It also supports the current Vijeo Designer software.
