Milford, Ohio– Parker’s Electromechanical Automaton Division announces the Parker Factory Display (PFD) visualization system, factory displays that feature high-definition resolution, flat-panel design, and built-in networking and graphics support.

New HMI: Parker Factory Display (PFD) visualization system

Whether presenting Andon display-type information, lean metrics, production status, OEE data, safety policies or employee announcements, PFD provides workers with real-time, situational awareness for faster response to slowdowns, shutdowns, and non-conforming conditions. PFD comes pre-installed with Parker Factory Manager (PFM), Windows-based software that leverages Web-browsing software for remote support and application sharing via the Internet and IP networks. PFM lets users develop, edit and publish PFD applications from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection.

Additional product features include 32-, 40- and 46-in. sizes with 16.7 million colors, and the ability for multiple display systems to be served from a single master PFD unit. The 40-in. and 46-in. models include thermal sensors and fans, as well as a scheduling feature for power management. Direct PLC connectivity automates data collection (no extra charge for more than 40 drivers.)
