Operator panel, one of five new offerings from SEW-Eurodrive, features direct communication with a drive and built-in recipe controls.

Lyman, SC —Five new operator terminals from SEW-Eurodrive are said to offer simplicity of operation and versatile control functionality for power transmission applications. Rugged displays are designed to help operators easily access, diagnose, and optimize production processes.
These high-quality visualization and control tools, the company reports, make it easy for operators to determine whether highly automated processes that require synchronous operation are being performed with accuracy. Panels feature direct communication with a drive, built-in recipe controls, alarm management, multi-level password security, and optional Ethernet TCP/IP or Profibus DP connectivity. The panels allow pass through access to drive data and simultaneous communication with two information sources, such as a PLC and a drive. Displays come with programming software and a wide array of drivers for third-party devices.
Styles include 2 x 20 pixel LCD text display, 240 x 64 pixel LCD graphics display, 320 x 240 pixel VGA touch display, 320 x 240 pixel VGA color display, and 640 x 480 pixel VGA touch display. Many come with an IP65 membrane keypad with navigation keys, numeric keypad, and additional function keys.
