Beckhoff Unveils Versatile Control Panels and Panel PCs Made with Stainless Steel

Resilient industrial Panels for applications with stringent requirements comply with hygiene and cleanroom regulations

MINNEAPOLIS, - In order to better serve demanding industrial environments with rugged and resilient displays, Beckhoff Automation has released stainless steel variants of the CP77xx and CP79xx Panel series. With these new stainless steel Control Panels and Panel PCs, Beckhoff introduces control and display units that meet the strict hygiene regulations for the food, packaging and medical industries as well as for cleanrooms.

The stainless steel Panels with IP 65 protection feature virtually gapless housing design with flush-mounted touch screens. The Panel PC variant is equipped with an energy-efficient Intel® Atom(TM) processor and represents a high-performance Industrial PC with slimline stainless steel housing design.

The new housing design has minimum gap dimensions at the front and rear and is consistently flush without edges or crevices, meeting the hygiene and cleanroom regulations in the food and packaging industries. Moisture deposits and the risk of associated contamination are avoided. The stainless steel Control Panels and Panel PCs are currently available in 12" or 15" screen sizes.

Intel® Atom(TM)-based Panel PC offers high performance in a compact format

The CP77xx series stainless steel Panel PCs feature an Intel® Atom(TM) processor with low heat dissipation, forming a compact and high-performance IPC platform. The centerpiece of the device is a Beckhoff motherboard with 1-second UPS and two Ethernet ports.
The CP79xx stainless steel Control Panels feature a DVI/USB port for connection to a PC. DVI/USB Extended permits the installation of the stainless steel Panel up to 164-ft (50 meters) away from the PC. Operator convenience can be enhanced further by the optional stainless steel mounting arm adapters from Beckhoff, which permit the customer to integrate the Panel directly onto the machine.

Optimized operator comfort through customer-specific design

Customer-specific modifications such as integration of emergency off and electromechanical control buttons and short-stroke keys under the front laminate and USB ports are optionally available. The design of the front laminate can also be customized. The result is a multi-functional operating unit that integrates seamlessly with machine designs. Push-buttons with protective caps can be implemented as control interfaces for machinery used in the food industry.
