Industrial Control Panels and Panel PCs with multi-touch display technology. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.To continue applying the best interactive display technologies for industrial use, Beckhoff Automation has introduced the new CP2xxx and CP3xxx Control Panel and Panel PC series. These highly functional panels feature a modern operating concept with multi-touch technology as well as a contemporary, elegant device design. 

 

The aluminum and stainless steel panels are extremely robust and are designed for use under harsh industrial conditions as built-in or mounting arm devices. Widescreen panels in various sizes and resolutions are available in addition to the classic display sizes in 4:3 format. The new panel generation also offers numerous advantages to traditional single-touch users, such as an optimized price-to-performance ratio, with savings potential of up to 28% compared to previous devices. 

 

As most users of modern electronics are well aware, multi-finger touch screens are becoming increasingly popular thanks to smartphones, tablets and Windows 7. In order to make the benefits of this technology available for industrial applications, Beckhoff has added the CP2xxx and CP3xxx series to its successful Control Panel series, which were brought to the market in 1995. The completely redesigned panels enable new, innovative visualization concepts with intuitive operation while combining elegance with a durable design. 

 

Flexibility in display size and format The new Control Panel and Panel PC series are available in various display sizes and formats. All panels are available from Beckhoff in landscape or portrait format (horizontal/vertical). In addition to the classic 4:3 format display sizes, the new widescreen displays are available in: 7-inch with a resolution of 800 x 480, 15.6-inch with 1366 x 768, 18.5-inch with 1366 x 768 and 24-inch with the full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.
