VCP 20


The IndraControl VCP 20 compact terminal is a machine operator terminal that can initiate specific functions in the machine, depending on the application.

Because of its compact construction and continuous sealing on the back side of the device, it is particularly versatile. Additionally, it allows every possible mounting position.

Depending on the version, the compact terminal is equipped with three serial interfaces or with a fieldbus interface.

The front panel with short-stroke keypad consists of a 3 mm thick aluminum plate with beveled edges, which is coated with a chemical-resistant polyester film with raised embossing.

The compact terminal is equipped with a special operating system. The operating system can be reinstalled into the device (firmware download), if necessary, using the VI-Composer programming software.
