QTP 03 is a complete Low Cost operator panel with small overall dimension, specifically designed for industrial use and for direct mounting on automatic machinery. It is a video terminal suitable for a direct interface between operator and machine in any of the control or comand operations which could be necessary during running or diagnostic of the same machine.
Some new features make it suitable for interesting application fields as a stand alone message visualizator that are previously saved and then displayed by the digital I/O signals available on the card.

The picture is a top view of the card QTP 03 without display.

Typical connection of a QTP 03 - RS 232.

Typical connection of a QTP 03 - I2C BUS.

QTP 03 is available with Alphanumeric Fluorescent or LCD Displays, backlite with LEDs panel, with 20 characters for 2 or 4 lines or with 40 characters for 2 lines. QTP 03 is directly connected to the display, so it has an overall frontal dimension equal to the selected display used for visualization. For the mechanic fixing the user must use the onboard displays holes.

Optional front panel, QTP 72144, equipped with QTP 03-C2

QTP 03 is really usefull in all those applications where the user must visualize some messages and must manage no more than 3 keys for user interaction. QTP 03 allows, with its EEPROM, the capability to store more than 90 messages. These messages can be then displayed in two different ways: by dedicated commands received by the master unit to QTP, through the communication line, or Automatically, for example at the switch on operation, and in an Autonomous Way by the status change of the proper digital signals. With this feature the master work time and its program space are optimized or even erased, in fact messages must not be sent to the panel every time, they are already stored inside EEPROM of the QTP 03.

Housing QTP 72144 and QTP 96192.

Furthermore it is possible to get messages back through the serial line and read them again. So QTP 03 can be used as little mass memory where the user can save and read Set-Up informations, Passwords, Identification Codes, etc.
The horizontal Scrolling attribute for the saved messages, let the user displays more information on less space: on the first row of the display up to 200 characters can be shown in a self managed sliding modality.

Optional front panel, QTP 72144, equipped with QTP 03-C2.

Some models of QTP 03 can be inserted in the proper container QTP 72144 or QTP 96192 obtaining an enclosed product that have a protected front side and back openings for connections and that can be easily mounted in front panel modality.

Main features of QTP 03 are as follows:

The maximum dimension of QTP 03 are reported in the following figure; to obtain complete mounting quotes please refer to user manual.

The QTP 03 is able to execute an entire range of display commands, as clear screen, cursor position, etc., with code compatibility to ADDS View-Point standard and moreover it recognizes and execute many other commands, as described in the following table:
