The best indicator that the product is of high quality is how long it manages to keep the leading reputation on the market. The BTM series of configurable machine operator panels manufactured by the German company Bosch Rexroth did just that. BTM15.2-TA-TA-VA-SA-NA-2EA is the fifteenth model included in this series, and this is its second design.
The unit weighs about 2kg (4.4lbs), and it features a classic design with the dust gray front plate which is powder coated for additional longevity. Apart from the basic rack, the unit features five slots for different modules. In this particular setup, you will receive a writeable keyboard module in the first and second slot. The third slot is reserved for a feed override module, and the next one features the spindle override module.
Finally, the fifth slot is equipped with an emergency-stop module, which is the part of the standard setup in all BTM products. BTM15.2-TA-TA-VA-SA-NA-2EA also has a master board in the second slot while the back side contains 32 ports that are equally divided between the input and output options.
You will need to consider the conditions where you place the unit as the ambient temperature should be between 5 and 45C. If you want optimal performance, you should also make sure that the altitude is not higher than 1500m and the operating air pressure between 960 and 1060hPa.
The unit maintains communication with the control by using the InterBus-S remote bus connection, which is suitable for long distances. Ultimately, BTM15.2-TA-TA-VA-SA-NA-2EA has everything you may look for in a machine operator panel. Its versatility allows you to use it for various machines, which many users will appreciate.
