4.95 4Discovery-50 HMI Starter-Kit Description
4Discovery 5.0" Integrated Wall/Panel Mount Display
The 4Discovery-50 is a high resolution 480x854 pixel 4.95” (referred to as 5.0”) Intelligent wall mounted display solution from 4D Systems, featuring the DIABLO16 Processor and IPS display with wide viewing angles.
The 4Discovery is designed to be mounted directly onto a panel or wall, or any flat drillable surface. This universal mounting enables quick and easy installation almost anywhere in any orientation, enabling a wide range of users to take advantage of this display product.
Driving the display and peripherals is the DIABLO16 processor, a very capable and powerful graphics processor from 4D Systems, which enables stand-alone functionality, and is programmed using the 4D Systems Workshop4 IDE Software. The Workshop4 IDE enables graphic solutions to be constructed rapidly and with ease due to its design being solely for 4D’s graphics processors.
The 4Discovery has an array of features including a 5.0” 480x854 pixel TFT IPS LCD Display, Capacitive Touch, micro-SD memory storage, 2 wire RS485 Interface which can act as Master or Slave with additional changeover wire, Proximity sensor to wake (or otherwise) the unit as someone approaches, and a switch-mode power supply enabling a wide input voltage range, along with many more features.
Anything that has been designed to run on a PICASO or DIABLO16 module can theoretically run on this 4Discovery with minor changes. Please ensure you contact the 4D Systems’ support team if unsure changing over from a 4D Systems’ module to this 4Discovery.
Configurations and Customisability
The 4Discovery-50 has been designed with multiple configurations and customizability in mind. The inside of the 4Discovery-50 includes a daughter board that is permanently attached during assembly at the factory. By default this daughter board comes in a few different variations, but it can also be customized to a user’s specific requirements. For a custom configuration, please contact our sales team.
The default configuration of the 4Discovery-50 is with Daughter Board 1 (DB01). Unless otherwise stated, the 4Discovery-50 is assumed to be in this configuration and the part number is simply 4Discovery-50 (in some cases SKU can be communicated as 4Discovery-50-DB01).
In this configuration the 4Discovery-50 provides a looped dual port RS485 communications BUS. This default configuration enables RS485 communications using a 2-wire bus, and the dual RJ45 ports at the back enable daisy chaining multiple modules or other RS485 devices together on the BUS without the need for RS485 hubs or splitters. Please refer to the datasheet for additional details.
The 4Discovery-50W includes the same features as described above as well as additional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity enabled by ESP32-PICO-D4 SoC with both an integrated ceramic antenna and a u.FL connector for an external antenna. Please refer to the datasheet for further information.
Starter kits are available for all configurations. The starter kits include everything needed to get started with development with that particular configuration of the 4Discovery-50 and it is highly recommended to purchase a starter kit as a first-time user or if you are just starting your development project.
