Single-touch panels

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.

Highlights

  • Analog resistive single-touch screen
  • Widescreen formats from 7" WVGA to 15.6" HD
  • 4:3 formats from 5.7" VGA to 19" SXGA
  • Variants with keys and USB interface
  • Connections for DVI, SDL and SDL3
  • Slim design
  • Flexible mounting
  • Gloved operation possible
  • Anti-glare surface

Uniform system platform

Dividing the system into a panel, Smart Display Link (SDL/SDL3) receiver and a Panel PC brings considerable benefits in the field. A damaged display can be replaced quickly, for example, without having to exchange the entire Panel PC. In this way, B&R has created a uniform interface that establishes a flexible system platform for all future PC architectures.

Intelligent panel communication

Providing a flexible connection to remote operator panels sets Automation Panel systems apart from the competition. For the many panels in the field, the Automation PC 910 is equipped with the proven Smart Display Link (SDL) interface, which can also be operated as a standard DVI interface. SDL makes connecting PCs and displays as simple as hooking up as single cable – the ideal solution for short distances.

Additional information

The strengths of Smart Display Link 3 come to the fore when it comes to bridging larger distances. It can be used to operate Automation Panels up to 100 meters aways from the Automation PC.

Smart Display Link supplies the display unit not only with image data, but also with all the data it needs to operate the touch screen, LEDs, keys and remote USB interface.

For every industry

In addition to their standard variants, Automation Panels are also available in various industry-specific designs. They can therefore be used to cover special hygienic- or safety-related requirements in the food industry or even individual operating elements generally limited to the automotive industry.
