vsmGear - Panels and Interfaces

vsmLBP Series

The LBP series of hardware control surfaces have fully configurable multi-color graphical LCD buttons which provide unmatched status display, control and monitoring possibilities. Each button has the ability to perform multiple functions from a single push, thus hugely increasing the operational flexibility of the panels. Hardware investments are protected by the fact that VSM control surfaces are not dedicated to any device or function – control and monitor what you need wherever you need it.

vsmLBP Series Highlights

  • vsmLBP series of hardware control and monitoring panels have fully configurable multicolor graphical LCD buttons
  • Buttons provide unmatched status display and control possibilities
  • Each button can perform multiple functions with a single push, thus hugely increasing the operational flexibility of the panels.
  • Every action initiated from a button is executed in real time and for operational safety and clarity, the button displays will only show the true and current status of crosspoint or parameter settings.
  • Large toolbox of button navigation and function possibilities and no limits to the number of control “pages” within a panel
  • Panels can be configured, maintained and controlled remotely
  • All panels can be connected to vsmENC 17 (rotary incremental encoder panel)
  • Several panels can be connected logically to work as one
  • Direct Ethernet connectivity to the VSM network
  • Each panel has two built-in GPIOs for free use
  • Socketed buttons for easy replacement
  • User access rights transfer via RFID tag reader

vsmPanel

vsmPanel is software that runs on a network PC work- station client (Windows based) and, from a design and setup perspective, acts identical to a hardware panel. In fact, the administrator can control and view any hardware panel in the system directly from this client, if needed. Any number of client licenses are possible, each offering a different control interface if necessary. Normally operated in conjunction with a touchscreen for the most intuitive operation, vsmPanel allows free design and layout of an operational interface which can include pictures and images. Adding company logos and corporate design features to the panel design adds to the user experience and interaction. In addition, advanced control functions such as graphical faders, meters (meter data over protocol), alarm management, scheduling control, web browsers and media players can all be freely incorporated into a panel design. There are no limits to the number of control “pages” within a panel and with a large toolbox of button navigation possibilities, even the most complex workflows can be easily accommodated and, in most cases, simplified. Even complete signal path views can be created giving crucial feedback and routing status in complex applications.
