Resolution
The Magelis HMIDM Modular Display touch-screens  do not have DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI sockets built into them. They are designed to be connected directly to Magelis HMIBM Modular Box PC CPU/Motherboard modules via a proprietary connector for display.

To connect this line of Modular Display via Display Port to a PC, a display adapter with Reference Part Number HMIDADP11 must be purchased.

Note: The HMIDADP11 can also display video to a Magelis Modular Display from a Magelis HMIBM Modular Box PC via Ethernet remotely.

If the PC does not have a DisplayPort video output, DVI output from the PC can be converted with a DVI to DisplayPort adapter with Reference Part Number HMIYADDPDVI11.
