Ergonomic machine operation
B&R swing arm systems with IP65-rated panels raise the bar
B&R is proud to present a brand new line of swing arm systems. These fully enclosed panels are available in a wide range of variants and feature IP65 protection, allowing them to be placed optimally on machines.
Multi-touch widescreen panels are available in sizes ranging from 18.5" to 24" with either HD Ready or Full HD resolution. The larger displays and higher resolution make it possible to include even more information on each screen – an enormous advantage for user ergonomics.
High definition in portrait format
If space is limited yet large displays are still necessary, a 21.5" model in portrait format is also available. With optional side handles, it is easy to maneuver and operate these devices at the machine. Two system variants with analog resistive touch screens are also available in 4:3 format, allowing users to upgrade their operator hardware without having to modify their existing HMI applications in any way.
These swing arm systems can be equipped with buttons, selector switches, key switches and an integrated E-stop button as needed. Thanks to an integrated RFID reader, individual access rights can be assigned to anyone from service engineers to system operators. Jotting down passwords on small scraps of paper has been relegated to the past – right where it belongs.
