Rockwell Automation Frames Industrial Computers in Stainless Steel
New bezel option on Allen-Bradley® VersaView® Industrial Computers and Monitors broadens their application use in food, pharmaceutical, petroleum and chemical industries
MILWAUKEE, Dec. 22, 2003 - To meet strict industry standards and quality and safety requirements, food, pharmaceutical, petroleum and chemical industry manufacturers often specify stainless-steel-clad equipment for their production sites. New stainless-steel bezels allow the Allen-Bradley® VersaView® Industrial Computers and Monitors to meet the needs of virtually any industrial application-including visualization, control, information processing, and maintenance.
The new stainless-steel models, available in 15-inch and 17-inch touch and no-touch versions, carry the NEMA Type 12/13/4/4X and IP65 ratings. Rockwell Automation also minimized the collection ridges around the bezel to a one-millimeter depth, reducing the chance of contaminants gathering around the monitor, which makes cleaning easier.
"These new stainless-steel options provide the ideal solution for plant managers whose manufacturing equipment and controls must meet exacting industry criteria, such as for food or pharmaceutical applications," said Donald Anspach, industrial computers product manager, Rockwell Automation. "More often than not, industrial computers and monitors are applied as traditional HMI visualization solutions where operators interact with on-screen representations of the process. With VersaView, users get a product with the flexibility of multiple applications from a single system."
While VersaView Industrial Computers and Monitors make it possible for operators to monitor and operate single machines or entire systems, users can also apply their VersaView computers for PC-based control and machine maintenance and can collect and quickly share information about the manufacturing process and equipment.
The stainless-steel bezels for VersaView Industrial Computers and Monitors are available now.
