QTP 16Big-H basically is an operator interface provided with a large dimension display. Among the most important aims of QTP 16Big-H we can remind the representation of information that are visible even from a long distance, and the siplified input of user selections; moreover the availability of interesting additional features make it the right component to solve many applications in the civil, domestic and/or industrial fields, always by keeping an optimum price/performance ratio.

QTP 16Big-H is available with Alphanumeric displays by 20 characters for 4 lines in two different types: LCD type with LED backlite or Fluorescent.

A pratical and robust metallic container, in aluminium shape with the standard DIN 96x192 size allows a direct mounting in front panel modality. A back side openings allows to reach the connectors that can be used for the required wirings. The enclosed brackets supplied with QTP 16Big-H let the user mount and/or unmount the terminal by performing a simple rectangle digging up, on the support panel, that normally is the front side of the electric box.

The module's asynchronous serial line can be buffered with the most frequently used electric protocols and thanks to this feature the QTP 16Big-H can be connected to each systems available on the market. Furthermore low cost networks of QTPs can be realized where many different Operator Panel can be contemporaneously managed. Alternatively the terminal can be driven through a synchronous I2C BUS line that allows the connection on local networks.
The interconnection with other devices is ensured also by the optional CAN line, that increase the possible applications fields and gives better performance of the cemplete network.


CPU section features 16K FLASH with ISP interface for comfortable programming through the asynchronous serial line. This allows an easy development environment for the user application that doesn't require any additional system, with a considerable cost reductions. The user can write the application program with 8051 compatible code, by using one of the numerous high level development tools as the convenient BASIC compiler BASCOM 8051; the efficient C compiler µC/51 or the well known LadderWORK for the users that want contacts programming. With the scope to simplify much more the development phase, there are different ready to use management Firmwares, that are briefly described below.

Hardware features of QTP 16Big-H , including possible options, are as follows:

Entrambi i firmware una volta ricevuto il comando ed i relativi parametri d'ingresso effettano autonomamente la corrsipondente operazione ed al termine restituiscono gli eventuali risultati determinati dall'esecuzione. I firmware, anche se molto simili, si differenziano nelle modalità di utilizzo, come sotto descritto:

Both firmwares, once received the command and the necessary input parameters, perform autonomously the specified operation and at the end they return the possible results established by execution. The firmwares, that are really similar, are different for the user modalities, as below described:
