A powerful hardware platform for machine-oriented visualization and control applications, the p500 combines logic, motion and visualization in a smart integrated device, delivering a scalable platform and precision control for optimal manufacturing results. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.Designed for virtually all modern automation systems, the all-in-one panel controller p500 offers an ideal solution for easy deployment in centralized and decentralized architectures. The maintenance-free p500 delivers top performance in the smallest of spaces with no forced cooling or moving parts; it is the perfect combination of logic (PLC), motion and visualization in one device. The high computing capacity of the panel controller p500 is provided by a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor. Combining one gigabyte of internal main memory, two gigabytes of flash memory to replace the conventional hard disk, and an SD card slot for application data, the powerful p500 solution can be equipped with a soft program logic controller (PLC) for more demanding visualization applications.

The compact panel controller offers a fanless device in protection class IP65 (front) for resistance to shock and vibration and optimal performance in machine installations. The maintenance-free p500 uses a super capacitor in lieu of a standard buffer battery in the internal clock. A maintenance-free internal UPS automatically stores and retains data in the event of a power outage. For better reliability the panel controller p500 can be expanded with an external UPS.
