PanelView Plus 7 Standard Operator Interface From Rockwell Automation

Rockwell Automation announces the release of the Allen
Bradley PanelView Plus 7 Standard graphic terminal, giving machine
builders new options in the size, functionality and connectivity of their
graphic terminals. The terminals are available in five screen sizes, including
widescreen options.

The PanelView Plus 7 Standard operator interface is available in screen size
options ranging from 4 to 10 inches. Widescreen formats are available for the
4-inch and 9-inch screen options for enhanced visualization.

Plant operators can take advantage of the mobile capabilities of the PanelView
Plus 7 Standard terminal to monitor data from anywhere on the plant floor using
a tablet, smartphone or other mobile device. Virtual network computing (VNC)
connectivity also supports secure application monitoring on mobile devices from
remote locations.

To more efficiently configure multiple machines, machine builders can save
projects to the PanelView Plus 7 Standard SD card. This eliminates the
cumbersome process of configuring the same project for multiple machines. Users
can save their operating system, network configuration, data logs, recipes and
other files to the SD card to quickly restore operations in the event a
terminal needs to be replaced. Operators also can access saved diagnostics,
including messages, alarms and warnings, to better troubleshoot problems and
support proactive maintenance activities.

The Rockwell Automation software library of code now includes faceplates and
add-on instructions (AOI) for the PanelView Plus 7 Standard operator interface
to help machine builders save development time. This addition to the library
can reduce complex screen-development time by as much as 90 percent.

New installation clamps support fast, simple terminal installation and removal
without the use of tools. This reduces installation and maintenance time, and
minimizes the risk of over tightening and damaging the terminal during

The PanelView Plus 7 Standard terminals provide connectivity to one controller,
and up to 25 screens and 200 alarms along with ATEX Certification. These
features complement the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5370 programmable automation
controllers and work with the FactoryTalk View Machine Edition (ME) software
from Rockwell Automation to simplify project maintenance and better handle
multiple applications on a single terminal.
