The new generation: the compact 4.3" ecomatDisplay

16 million colours, a high-resolution display with optical bonding and a powerful processor, all packed into a compact, robust housing: This is the new 4.3" ecomatDisplay. The HMI not only offers a brilliant image quality, but also impresses with its brightness and wide viewing angle. This ensures that the machine operator can easily see the displayed contents from almost any position. Programming with CODESYS 3.5 provides the user with all important features such as trend, trace, alarm manager, user manager and web visualisation. The Linux-based operating system also enables customisation, such as individualised visualisation with QT.

Like all robust HMIs of the ecomatDisplay family, the 4.3-inch version is perfectly equipped for use in harsh environments. Permanent vibrations, water or dust cannot harm it. Besides, the display features the increased EMC resistance for which ifm is renowned and has E1 type approval, so that nothing prevents its use in road traffic.
In short: The 4.3" ecomatDisplay sets new standards in the field of compact, robust HMIs!

The 4.3" ecomatDisplay in detail

Product advantages

16 million colours, 1,000 cd/m² in brightness and a high-resolution display with optical bonding ensure optimum readability even in strong sunlight.
Heat, cold, water, ice, dust or vibrations cannot harm the 4.3" ecomatDisplay. With its robust housing made of die-cast aluminium, glass-fibre reinforced plastic and thermally hardened glass, the compact HMI masters every challenge.
A powerful dual-core 1.4 GHz processor, 4 GB memory and 1GB DDR4 RAM leave nothing to be desired.
Whether Modbus, CAN, CANopen, J1939, Ethernet protocols TCP/UDP, network variables via Ethernet or USB: The ecomatDisplay overcomes any communication barrier.
With a low energy consumption of only 5 (Ethernet variant) to 8 watts (USB variant), the compact ecomatDisplay is ideally equipped for the future.

System overview

High-performance communication technology at the heart of the mobile machine

With a powerful dual-core 1.4 GHz processor and low energy consumption of only 5 to 8 watts, the 4.3" ecomatDisplay is ideally equipped for the future. However, it is not only powerful, but also has real communication skills. Whether Modbus server/client, CAN, CANopen, J1939, Ethernet protocols TCP/UDP, network variables via Ethernet or USB (optional): The ecomatDisplay always offers the right way and the right language to communicate with the mobile machine.

The 4.3" ecomatDisplay is also unbeatable in terms of operability- a version with RGB keypad (16 million colours) and a version with capacitive touchscreen (release 2024) leave nothing to be desired.
