Panel PC 2100 single-touch
Maximum performance comes in very small packages
With an ultracompact housing that corresponds to the dimensions of a Smart Display Link receiver, the Panel PC 2100 is an extremely powerful PC system that can handle virtually any application. The control cabinet variant of the Automation PC 2100 also provides a complete PC system with minimized dimensions.
For all applications that need to be compatible with existing systems, 4:3 panels with analog resistive touch screens are also available. This makes it possible to continue using HMI applications at their current resolution with the latest PC platform without having to modify the software a single bit.
Versatile panel technology
The second generation of Automation Panels also serves as the technical basis for B&R's Panel PC devices. This modular platform strategy results in a product portfolio with extraordinary flexibility.
The core component is the panel itself, which is transformed into an Automation Panel by adding a modular Smart Display Link receiver. Alternatively, using Smart Display Link 3 opens up additional possibilities for spanning longer distances and even easier cabling. Adding a PC unit turns the same panel into a full-fledged Panel PC with scalable processing performance. Using the same front-side platform reduces the amount of warehouse space required for replacement parts. Custom variants using Automation Panels and Panel PCs require only a single base unit.
Communication in all directions
The Panel PC 2100 integrates all important interfaces, including 2x gigabit Ethernet as well as 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0. Interface modules can also be added to take advantage of fieldbus technology such as POWERLINK and CAN. For data storage, MLC-based CFast cards are available that can store up to 60 GB or more.
All 2nd generation Automation Panels – whether single- or multi-touch – can be transformed into a complete PC system with the Panel PC 2100. Since the Panel PC 2100 is no larger than the Smart Display Link receiver, it does not increase the system's physical depth. Connecting cables to the Ethernet and fieldbus interfaces is also extremely user-friendly since they are all accessible on one side of the Panel PC 2100.
Maximum graphics performance
The graphics engine used by Intel Atom processors is derived from Core i technology and provides powerful processing. This is also the first time that support for DirectX 11 is provided in this segment, opening up even more possibilities for enhanced graphic capabilities in SCADA and other HMI systems. All resolutions and screen sizes up to 24.0" Full HD are supported.
