HMI Interfaces Enhance Production Line Visibility

Latest News

The Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 6 range of Human-Machine Interfaces are designed for applications where operators must understand machine status in order to improve decision making.

Screen sizes range from 7 in. to 15 in. in touch or keypad models, and feature more memory with faster refresh rates and more on-device storage. A memory increase from 64 MB to 512 MB supports graphics enhancements along with larger application runtime files.

An increase in processing speed from 650 MHz to 1 GHz enables operators to get to required screens and data quicker, avoiding errors and improving their ability to respond. Terminals feature a PDF viewer for user manual and troubleshooting guides, and a remote recipe and data manager with the ability to save data in .csv format.

The PanelView Plus 6 includes the latest FactoryTalk View Machine Edition (ME) and FactoryTalk ViewPoint software running under the Windows CE 6.0 operating system. Windows CE 6.0 delivers added security and reduced corruption in a closed system that does not require a shutdown procedure. EtherNet/IP is the standard network.
