Eaton is introducing a new line of high-performance operator interfaces. The XV and XP Series of operator interfaces are easy to configure and offer customers:                                                           

  • Flexibility in design, communications, and application
  • Slim, lightweight OEM design with global ratings offered in plastic and metal housing
  • Broad array of serial and Ethernet connectivity options.

Each model comes equipped with Eaton’s Visual Designer software optimized for OEMs and designed for interoperability, simplicity, and security. It is powerful and intuitive, and allows for the quick design and implementation of graphical user interface (GUI) solutions. It helps customers lower total installed cost with ease-of-use and time-saving features. The elegant and modern user interface helps make advanced features easier, including data archiving, recipe management, multi-language, SQL database access, and web serving.

In addition to basic monitor and control, the software has many advanced features that help streamline the design of sophisticated applications, including creating web-based applications.  Simplified yet powerful security means that the same local user accounts and passwords for viewing and control also apply remotely, Eaton said. Visual Designer allows Eaton’s XV and XP Series to communicate with a variety of networks, PLCs, web clients, and databases.

The operator interfaces are engineered for optimum connectivity and are available in a variety of screen sizes ranging from 3.5-in. to 15-in. and a blind node. All models include serial and Ethernet ports. Other connectivity and memory options include SD, CompactFlash, USB, and multiple Ethernet ports. Eaton provides free technical support for hardware and software.
