GTT38A

GTT38A

The GTT38A is an intelligent display that features a full color resistive touchscreen TFT and is designed to fit 1U applications. With the available - industry standard - communication protocols (serial RS232, TTL, I2C, RS422 and USB) and the incorporation of a 25 key (matrix-style) keypad header, communicating, controlling and interacting with the display is easily achieved.

Included features, like the piezo speaker and vibratory motor, provide tactile and audio feedback for a comfortable, confident user interaction. Additionally, the field updatable micro SD card stores font and bitmap files to liberate space and resources for use by the microcontroller, Arduino, or other HMI controller. Suitable for a wide range of applications, and with a resolution of 480 x 116, the GTT38A is a complete display solution that will quickly become the bright fresh face of your machine or user interface.

Pair the GTT series with our free software - GTT Designer - to design screens and user interactions quickly and easily. The software, which is compatible with all GTT displays, is a fully graphical, object-on, drag and drop suite with a library of built-in objects. Including: graphs, charts, buttons and animations. The interface was designed so no technical expertise is required to create a fully interactive user interface in minutes.
