Operator panel with a CANopen interface
Baldor’s KPD202-501 operator panel is a compact IP65-rated operator panel with a CANopen interface that provides a cost-effective HMI for machine builders, as well as a scalable control solution – an optional plug-in digital I/O module facilitates simple system expansion.
The KPD202-501 operator panel features a backlit 4-line x 20-character LCD surrounded by 6 programmable function keys, enabling unambiguous, and actionable, multiple-choice menus to be presented to the machine operator. A further 15 keys are provided for the input of numeric values, together with 4 pairs of keys which can be used for functions such as jogging individual machine axes. Easy to fit and set up. Can be accommodated with minimal impact on layout and merely requires a rectangular cut-out in the fascia; built-in mounting clamps secure the unit. The only connections needed are a 24 Vdc power feed and the desired communications link. As standard, the panel is equipped with a CANopen port.
