Beckhoff releases new energy-saving panel PCs
To provide a wider range of energy-efficient industrial displays with powerful processors, Beckhoff has released its new CP77xx series Panel PCs, a high-performance variant that features Intel Atom processors. The solid state CP77xx Panel PCs are suited for mid-range control platforms, and as HMI units for machine builders and plant engineering applications.
Integrating the 1.1 or 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor into a Beckhoff control panel turns the rugged IP65 display device into a multi-tasking panel PC with a slim housing design. The CP77xx has a very low housing depth: between 1.1-in and 1.8-in (28 and 45 mm) depending on the screen size. The CPU is integrated into a slim format control panel housing and can be equipped with a 6.5, 12, 15 or 19 inch display screen. Users benefit from significant energy savings due to the low power consumption of the Atom CPU. The CP77xx also is equipped with a Compact Flash card, which is accessible under a cover on the back of the panel. Two RJ45 Ethernet connections and an RS-232 interface in the rear of the panel are standard. A two-port USB interface is available as an option.
