GE Fanuc says QuickPanel not directly replaceable

[Editor's note: In a recent Technology Update article, "Uticor's OI terminal offers free software, 'hot' downloads," CE, Feb. '02, p. 8, it was reported that Uticor's Q Square terminal can replace GE Fanuc's QuickPanel.] As a proven operator interface, the GE Fanuc QuickPanel provides an easy-to-use, cost-effective graphical solution.

As a proven operator interface, the GE Fanuc QuickPanel provides an easy-to-use, cost-effective graphical solution. This technology has been applied tens of thousands of times, and GE Fanuc has many satisfied QuickPanel customers in nearly every industry. To say that any product is a direct replacement for the QuickPanel would be untrue. There is no equal replacement for this kind of proven performance, combined with the breadth and support of the GE organization.

Furthermore, we continue to build on our proven platform and now offer a new generation of QuickPanels with built-in Ethernet connectivity and 4 MB of flash EPROM, among other powerful features. This new generation of QuickPanels will serve customers throughout the globe, easing design time and permitting end- user access to information with almost no training. Our customer, Kermit Reed, president of RUMC, says it best, "Because of the QuickPanel front end, the set up and interface [of our machine] are so simple that a new operator can be trained within minutes."
