PC-based control technology in the cost-sensitive, lower to middle performance range can now be scaled even more precisely in line with individual application requirements.

The new widescreen variants have a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) touch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 WSVGA, which paves the way for comprehensive operator interface and visualization options. Added to this is superior display quality with 16.7million available colors on the 10.1-inch diagonal screen. The latest additions to the entry-level class from Beckhoff include two fanless Panel PCs and a purely passive Control Panel. These devices permit the cost-effective implementation of control and visualization tasks for small and medium-sized machines, production systems and buildings.

The three new widescreen TFT touch Panel PCs from Beckhoff are:

• CP6600 Panel PC with 1GHz ARM Cortex™ A8 CPU and 1GB DDR3 RAM memory

• CP6700 Panel PC with Intel®Atom™ processor (up to 1.91GHz, four cores) and 2GB DDR3L RAM (optionally extended up to 8GB)

• CP6900 Control Panel with DVI/USB Extended technology for operation at a distance of up to 50m from the IndustrialPC or Embedded PC

Equipped with a metal housing consisting of an aluminum front bezel and a sheet steel rear cover, the panels offer significantly higher quality and durability than the plastic panels typically offered in the low-cost, entry-level segment. In addition, the high-quality materials and a rounded front bezel lend a modern and appealing look to the panels, which can be used in the most diverse production and building environments at operating temperatures from 0to55°C.
