KeTop OP 500

Multi-touch technology for the ultimate ease of use

Navigate into the future

The 12“, 15“ and 18“ multi-touch screen panels of the OP 500 series are setting new usability standards. A smooth work process with intuitive multi-touch gestures allows the extremely fast configuration of the process values, reducing configuration as well as servicing operations. Optionally, tried-and-tested membrane keyboard technology can be used in addition to the modern multi-touch operation. This way, you can bridge the gap between modern machine operation using the touchscreen and familiar user interventions using keyboards for moving the machines, and provide a maximum of flexibility for your users.

The operation devices of the OP 500 series are available as DVI monitors in landscape or portrait orientation. The visualization is centralized and handled by a superordinate control CPU. This monitor concept centralizes data management on the controller, significantly simplifying the commissioning and servicing of the entire system. With their customization options, the operation devices are perfectly suited to all general industrial applications in combination with the KeControl C1 or C5 series controllers.

Premium technology for all requirements

The advantage of the DVI monitor solutions is their compact and efficient overall design. There is no need for a second active computer unit – running the controller and the HMI on one device not only saves costs, it also reduces the error susceptibility during commissioning and servicing of the entire machine. Thanks to the intelligent hardware and software solutions, the DVI monitor panels of the OP 500 series can be located up to 15m away from the controller.

Benefits of DVI monitors and 1-cable solutions:


The 1-cable solution transmits graphics contents to the panel, as well as multi-touch gesture input to the controller. For KeControl C5 or C1 controllers, the visualization uses the KeView Style HMI framework.


Innovative features

Multi-touch & real time

In addition to the multi-touch signals, the key strokes and any other signals from connected I/O devices such as rotary switches or push buttons are also transmitted to the controller in real time. Intelligent algorithms guarantee jerk-free, smooth gesture-based operation with simultaneous, real-time capable machine movements.

USP interface

USB devices such as memory sticks or printers can be plugged into the panel using the USP passthrough – the USB signals are evaluated directly in the controller. Expansion modules for greater distances are also available.

RFID module

Contactless user identification via chip card can be implemented using an optional RFID module. The module plugs directly into the panel and integrates seamlessly with the KeView Style user management including EUROMAP 65 compatibility for the plastics industry.

Keyboard operation

The optional keyboards and LEDs for machine operation are highly customizable; they come as a specific KePlast model for the use with plastics injection molding machines. The options range from machine-specific modifications of the membrane keyboard to customer-specific panel solutions to fully customized operator consoles.
