This feature-filled solution is ideal for control of small to medium-sized machines. The ARM Cortex A8 processor used in the CP26xx Panel PC series has a hardware-based floating point unit, which makes floating point operations (Real, LReal) significantly faster.

Subsequently, this powerful Panel PC series can be used for motion control applications in addition to running the HMI software. TwinCAT automation software from Beckhoff turns the Panel PC into an all-in-one HMI, PLC and motion control system. The CP26xx Panel PC features a 1 GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU with access to 1 GB internal DDR3 RAM memory. The standard operating system is Microsoft Windows Embedded Compact 7.

Additionally, a 256 MB Micro SD card is included as standard and up to 4 GB are optionally available. A 128 kbyte NOVRAM ensures fail-safe storage of TwinCAT process data. Also available is an on-board 10/100BASE-T Ethernet adapter, an EtherCAT adapter with RJ-45 connector and an RS-232 interface with two USB-2.0 ports. The aluminum panel housing, with high quality glass front, offers IP 65 protection at the front and IP 20 in the back. Users have a choice of eight different multi-touch TFT displays in sizes between 7 in" and 24 in", as well as 4:3, widescreen, landscape or portrait formats.
