A lot of technology – at a low investment cost. This slogan fittingly describes the OPUS A3e. This full-value operator console features a 4.3” screen with 480 x 272 pixels and is optionally available with a touchscreen display. A further plus point of the OPUSA3e is its weight: less than 1kg.

Inside is a powerful and reliable 32-bit, 532 MHz processor, with memory option ranging from a minimum of 512 MB, up to 1 GB. Equipped with a multi-color LED, 4 analogue or digital inputs, 2 CANbus ports and a full-speed USB 2.0 interface, this low-cost unit is not lacking in functionality. The OPUS A3e: high performance at an entry-level price.

Acoustic Alarm

To assure reliable monitoring, the full line version of the OPUS A3e features an acoustic alarm with an output of up to 65 dBA. This makes it particularly suitable as a parameterisation unit, and it uses the trusted Embedded Linux operating system.
You can count on it: the OPUS A3e offers the best price-to-performance ratio available on the market in its class.
