Automation Panel 5000
While their predecessors were connected to a remote industrial PC, today's decentralized control architectures increasingly demand panels with onboard intelligence – in the form of integrated PC components. The Automation Panel 5000 can be set up as a remote terminal or an integrated Panel PC. This involves equipping it with either a PC unit or a receiver for B&R's high-performance digital display technology, Smart Display Link (SDL/SDL3). Either way, the operator panel itself is identical.
Swipe, zoom, scroll
A wide selection of Automation Panels are available for swing arm mounting. The classic variant is available with analog resistive touch screens in 4:3 format, with sizes ranging from 15" to 19" and XGA or SXGA resolution.
Multi-touch systems, on the other hand, are quickly gaining popularity in industrial environments through benefits such as intuitive swiping, zooming and scrolling gestures as well as two-hand gestures to prevent the inadvertent triggering of critical operations. Widescreen Automation Panels with projected capacitive touch screens are available in sizes ranging from 15.6" to 24" with either HD Ready or Full HD resolution.
Touch screens open up new forms of user interaction, yet mechanical controls continue to be preferred for certain operations. That's why B&R offers its Automation Panel 5000 with optional push buttons, selector switches and key switches. An E-stop button can also be installed on the swing arm device, where it is always within the operator's reach.
Used to manage access rights in many facilities, RFID keys can just as easily control access to operator terminals.
To adapt optimally to the needs of each machine, keys and switches can be customized according to customer specifications. The list of possible adaptations endless, including virtually any arrangement of standard keys, illuminated ring keys and push buttons in various colors. Custom HMI devices are generally delivered fully assembled. A custom keypad module is also available.
电缆通过摇臂系统安装，并可轻松连至带IP65防护等级的区域，这样就能使用低成本的标准电缆。The installed panel is wired directly on the swing arm. 设备设置与设备安装一样采取模块化的方式完成。Customers who opt for Smart Display Link 3, the latest generation of B&R display transmission technology, benefit from slim RJ45 connectors, which are perfect for the restricted space available in swing arms.
Systems in the Panel PC 2100 series are equipped with high energy-saving processors that cover a wide performance spectrum ranging from single-core processors all the way up to quad-core. This computing power is otherwise only possible in a cabinet-mounted device. 显卡性能也并不落后；还支持像DirectX 11这样的功能。Even on a swing arm, the Panel PC 2100 is perfectly suited for the absolute latest SCADA systems with sophisticated graphics.
Swing arm devices are available either with a touch screen or with additional control elements. 针对关键任务的双手操作可以防止意外操作。模拟电阻式单点触摸屏丰富了产品线。按钮、选择开关、钥匙开关以及集成的急停按钮增加了用户的舒适感。An integrated RFID reader allows the assignment of individual access rights. The practice of jotting down passwords on scraps of paper can finally be put to rest.
B&R Automation Panels support both pendant and pedestal mounting. The panels are designed to allow easy access to all operating elements and cables. This is done by removing the entire back cover, which – like panel itself – offers IP65 protection.
Side grips can be installed so that the user can easily move the panel into the optimal position. The optional swivel-tilt flange allows the panel to be adjusted to an ergonomic viewing angle for comfortable use without fatigue. As an alternative to the swing arm system, the Automation Panel 5000 can also be installed on a VESA monitor mount.
