New full screen user interface from DEK
Oct 14, 2004
DEK has announced that its 248 semi-automatic printers now benefit from a new PC-based user interface, allowing operators to view all machine parameters at a glance for faster, accurate machine control.
Combined with the new keyboard featuring integrated trackball, the new user interface also makes editing parameters, moving, storing and backing-up product files, and accessing context-sensitive help easier than ever.
The new user interface also supports the optional DEK 248 vision capabilities. It replaces the 4-line LCD panel of earlier models, and also adopts the look and feel of the DEK Instinctiv user interface available for DEK's high-end fully automatic platforms.
This enhances commonality between all machines in the DEK range to make life easier for assemblers operating a mix of semi-automatic and fully-automatic machines, or migrating to higher performance equipment. A 3.5-inch floppy disk drive is also included as part of the new hardware, facilitating exchange of product files and information between the semi-automatic machine and desktop PCs, and the enterprise network.
