EZCE Touchpanel Overview
EZCE Touchpanel is an open platform PLC Touchscreen that combines the best of the original EZTouch dedicated HMI with the advanced functionality of a disk-less industrial computer running WindowsCE.
It is available in all the eight different screen models of EZPanel and has the same footprint as the original EZTouch and EZPanel Enhanced. Programs developed on either the original EZ Touch or the EZ Panel Enhanced can be seamlessly transferred to the EZCE Touchpanel. Programs developed on EZ CE Touchpanel can also be transferred to EZPanel Enhanced. In fact the EZPanel Enhanced Programming software is common to all these models.

Where Does It Make Sense?
If you need to give your machine operators access to the Microsoft world of CE, that is the ability to view files such as Adobe Acrobat PDF, Excel, Word, MPEG (Video), Word Pad text editor, as well as give access to Internet or Intranet, EZCE Touchpanel is a good choice.
The user can also write their own programs in Visual Basic or C++ along with the EZPanel application running on the unit. There are pros and cons of using a dedicated HMI panel vs an open platform panel, but the beauty of the EZAutomation™s unique and exclusive approach is that you develop your application using the same programming software and can run it on either panel. EZ as 1-2-3!
