Automotive Touch Panel: solutions for mobile work machines and agricultural machinery

Digital connectivity doesn't stop in industrial applications, but is also increasingly providing greater performance in mobile machinery. Whether it's rollers, construction equipment or agricultural machinery, operation is becoming more complex and modern. For this reason, more and more touch panels are being used. They form the interface between the machine operator and the machine itself. In this way, sensors for monitoring the environment are visualized and assistance functions can be used.

Monitor for agricultural and work machines

User-centric operator workplace design is becoming increasingly important. With the help of an appealing and functional touch panel, the complex operating procedures are simplified and intuitive machine control is made possible.

Particularly robust automotive touch panel 

Work machines are often used in rough terrain. The touch panels must withstand extreme environmental influences. A robust design without any disruptive moving parts is particularly important here and, in addition to the use of industrial components, ensures a long service life for the devices. Our Automotive Touch Panel are designed for these special requirements.

Advantages of automotive touch panel solutions from Christ

  • Robust design for the use of automotive panels in mobile machines and agricultural machinery
  • Planning reliability for machine builders due to long-term available components
  • Light sensor for optimal readability of the display in different lighting conditions

Robust touch panels from Christ ensure smooth beet harvesting in the toughest conditions

Touch panels for use in agricultural machinery, such as beet harvesters, must be particularly robust and reliable. Ropa Fahrzeug- und Maschinenbau GmbH relies on the panels from Christ. They were specially developed for the extreme requirements and, together with modern terminal software, form the heart of the agricultural machinery.

Gruber Ropa

"The terminal in the beet harvester plays a very large role in the purchasing decision of harvester buyers."

says Mr. Michael Gruber, division manager at ROPA Fahrzeug und Maschinenbau GmbH.

For an optimally coordinated solution, Ropa's software development team worked closely with Christ. The challenge was an extremely narrow time window for development. In addition, the system had to be particularly robust and stable to ensure smooth harvesting.

Agrifac Machinery B.V.

AGRIFAC MACHINERY B.V. produces field sprayers and beet harvesters. With their machines, the company enables to exceed customer needs. This makes them a world leader in technology and innovation


Project description:
A special HMI solution was developed for the agricultural machinery of the Agrifac company, which can be reliably used even under the toughest conditions. The solution is available in two different performance classes, depending on the software requirements.


  • Integration of daylight-readable displays
  • Reliable operation in a high temperature range
  • Special requirement in the automotive environment


  • The Christ panels meet the high individual requirements for agricultural equipment.

Advantages of the solution:

  • By integrating numerous sensors and cameras via a display, it was possible to do without elements on the hardware side.
  • The field of view for the operator is particularly user-friendly.
  • The operating options have been reduced and thus simplified.
