For applications that need to be compatible with existing systems, 4:3 panels with analog resistive touch screens are also available. This makes it possible to upgrade to the latest PC platform while continuing to use HMI applications at their current resolution so that no software changes are required.
The Panel PC 2100 used in the Automation Panel 5000 provides a full-featured and powerful PC system. Its ultracompact housing has the dimensions of an Smart Display Link receiver. The cabinet-mount variant offers these advantages as well.
The PC design is based on the Intel Bay Trail architecture and offers an optimal price/performance ratio. With single-, dual- and quad-core processor technology, it represents a milestone for embedded systems. All Automation Panel 5000 variants have done away with internal fans.
- 4:3 formats from 15" XGA to 19" SXGA
- Analog resistive single-touch screen
- Connections for DVI, SDL and SDL3
- High-quality, scratch-resistant housing without dirt-collecting edges
- Optionally available with handles
- Glove operation possible
- Flexible installation on top or bottom
The continuing reduction of control cabinets in particular is increasing the need for input stations that can be installed flexibly. Fully enclosed panels with IP65 protection offer decisive advantages when it comes to positioning operator terminals at the most convenient locations on the machine. For this reason, completely enclosed Automation Panel and Panel PC variants are available for mounting on swing arm systems.
- Intel Atom E3800 processors
- Up to quad-core CPU performance
- Extremely powerful graphics
- 2x Gigabit Ethernet
The Panel PC 2100 integrates all important interfaces, including 2x Gigabit Ethernet as well as 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0. In addition, fieldbuses such as POWERLINK and CAN can be implemented via modular interface modules. For data storage, MLC-based CFast cards are available that can store up to 256 GB or more.
