Interaction at Festo AG’s AutomationCenter

We reported earlier this year on a contract won by Eizo at Festo AG’s automation centre. Now, we’ve heard from Sharp that Festo has also chosen 60″, 70″ and 80″ ‘Big Pads’ from Sharp for the meeting rooms at the site.

Tobias Reiter, Inf. Management IT Contracts at Festo, explained: “Sharp’s LCD monitors combine innovative technology with user-friendly operation and a very good price-performance ratio. We were also impressed by Sharp’s flexibility in addressing our special requirements regarding the equipment and the design of the monitors. Sharp provided us with a solution that was exactly tailored to our needs.”

With the help of partner Cancom Didas, a total of 32 touch displays (models PN-60TB3, PN-70TB3 and PN-80TC3) were installed in the meeting rooms and another 11 in the common areas of the Automation Centre. They are seamlessly integrated into the user-friendly environment of the Festo Room System.

Reiter added: “We have been using the equipment for some time now, and the feedback has been consistently positive. This only strengthens our resolve to make the Festo Room System gradually available across the company. The touch displays from Sharp are an essential part of this concept.”
