Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 6 HMI terminal - Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 6 HMI terminal has increased memory, no runtime memory limitation, a factory default option and built-in, pre-registered, time-saving design enhancements. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The new Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 6 human machine interface (HMI) terminal was designed for large-scale applications where there is a need to monitor, control and display information graphically, and quickly understand that information. This latest version of the HMI features several new features including more memory for significantly faster refresh rates and more on-device storage. Every PanelView Plus 6 includes the latest FactoryTalk View Machine Edition (ME) and FactoryTalk ViewPoint software running on the Windows CE 6.0 operating system. FactoryTalk View ME 6.0 software provides the PanelView Plus 6 with new time-saving design enhancements, including a new extensive graphics library, enhanced color animation capability and access to a multi-language font library. The terminal can directly reference tags created for a controller and comes with a factory-default option, reducing troubleshooting to increase uptime. The latest version supports Windows 7 and has achieved VMware-ready status.

For the increasing number of manufacturers that need up-to-the-minute production information from multiple locations, FactoryTalk ViewPoint 1.2 software embedded in the PanelView Plus 6 provides access to real-time operations data simply by logging onto an Internet browser. As a Web-enabled HMI application, it extends access to FactoryTalk View displays and dashboards to users anywhere for improved real-time decision making. The new version supports the latest operating systems and Web clients to expand usability of this thin-client application in a variety of Web environments and wireless devices. Newly supported environments include the Microsoft Windows 7 server, VMware server and Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.
