PanelPilot | SGD 43-A

4.3” with Analogue, Digital, PWM & Serial Interfaces


SGD 43-A is a 4.3” capacitive touch display designed for use with PanelPilotACE Design Studio, a free drag-and-drop style software package for rapid development of advanced user interfaces and panel meters.  This off the shelf display features a wealth of hardware interfaces, including four 16-bit bipolar analogue inputs (to a maximum of ±40V d.c.), eight digital input/output pins, two alarm outputs, four 8-bit PWM outputs, PID Control, multi-channel data logging and trend graphs, serial RS232 and accessories available for RS485 communication and four-channel thermistor temperature measurement.

Development Kit

The development kit, SGD 43-A-DK+, is the best choice if you are starting to develop on the PanelPilotACE platform.  It includes all you need to begin:  an SGD 43-A, a development board and a USB cable.  The board provides switches, dials, LEDs and screw terminal connections for all the input and output functionality of the SGD 43-A.
