Original Press Release:
Eaton Announces PanelMate Operator Interface (OI) Product Line Extension
PITTSBURGH, PA... Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation released the latest addition to its PanelMate® ePro family. The Cutler-Hammer PanelMate ePro XE unites the flexibility of a PC-based SCADA system and the reliability of a dedicated OI product. This latest development builds on the existing ePro OI foundation by adding recipe/machine setup functionality, data trending, document viewing/browsing, and data historian capabilities.
Designed for harsh environments typical to industrial applications, the ePro XE incorporates solid-state memory technology that is resistant to vibration and temperature extremes. Consistent with all PanelMate ePro models, the ePro XE has built-in 10/100 Mbps Base-T Ethernet. Users can share files and data between PLC and business systems and perform quick and easy file uploads and downloads to PanelMate ePro units. Additionally, it features an expansion slot for optional proprietary network interface cards that support existing and new installations.
"Customers no longer have to choose between enhanced functionality and ease of use, they get both with the ePro XE," says Clyde Thomas, product line manager with the company's
Cutler-Hammer business. "We offer simplified development and operating tools with the same powerful technologies that PanelMate products are famous for."
Completely compatible with PanelMate Power Series, Power Pro, and development software; current customers can use their existing configurations on the new ePro models. Integrated models fit into the exact same cutout as the PanelMate Power Pro and Power Series 1100, 1500, 1700 and 3000 touchscreen models.
The PanelMate ePro XE is offered with color DSTN and color TFT displays. Additionally, a "headless" unit is available for a range of external display options. All displays support touchscreen interfaces with touchpad options available in the near future.
