Panels as Powerful as an Industrial PC

Panels as Powerful as an Industrial PC

The new Power Panel 500 generation is equipped with Intel Atom Z510, Z520 and Z530 processors and handles the performance range of industrial PCs. The Power Panel 500 can be equipped with up to 2 GByte of main memory and the product range includes panels ranging from 5.7 inch VGA to 15 inch XGA displays with an intuitive touch screen and function keys.

Gigabit Ethernet is for fast communication over the plant network. There is also the option of adding an additional Gigabit Ethernet interface if needed. Remote I/O and drives can be connected using modular fieldbus interfaces. Depending on requirements, Power Panel devices can be expanded with POWERLINK, CAN bus, Profibus DP or other fieldbus interfaces. This allows additional topologies to be implemented at a later date. The Power Panel 500 bridges the gap between the real-time operating system and standard operating systems such as Windows CE, Windows XP and Windows 7. It is also possible to use Windows and the real-time operating system together. Universal application possibilities reduce logistics because the same system platform is always used.
