ComfileHMI Panel PC Hardware Specifications

Hardware Specifications

  • Power supply voltage is 12~24V (If voltage drop is a concern, use 24V.)
  • The touch method is a resistive pressure-sensitive method.

  • CHC series have built-in eMMC, so they operate without an SD card. (SD card required for log recording)
  • In the case of models with multiple communication ports, you can use the device by connecting it to all communication ports.
  • There is no project upload function. Please keep the project file well.
  • Some models without (CE,KCC) certification require the user to directly obtain certification for the entire final product when making a commercialized product for commercial purposes.
