CTC expands appliance-level line of operator interfaces, bundles 10 inch display with HMI in new P1-10 inch PowerStation

Priced very competitively, P1-10" Powerstation provides 10" monochrome or color touchscreen display, Pentium 166 MHz CPU, 10/100Base Ethernet, Compact Flash memory, and pre-installed core HMI

MILFORD, OHIO (May, 2002) — Parker Automation-CTC expands its PowerStation family of P1 appliance-level operator interfaces with a new P1-10" model. The control maker's most affordable 10" PC-based operator interface, the new P1-10" comes standard with touchscreen display, core HMI functionality, rugged Compact Flash storage media, Pentium 166 MHz CPU, 10/100Base Ethernet, RS232/422/485 serial ports (3), and keyboard/mouse ports. It is available with either monochrome or color (TFT) 10" display. The new model continues CTC's expansion of P1 Powerstations from a single 6" model into a family of appliance-level displays in meeting market needs for application flexibility. The P1-10" provides an appealing upgrade for panel replacement, along with the connectivity and expandability of an open platform. The larger screen lets OEMs enhance screen layouts and readability, or offer a larger screen as a machine control option. Starting at $2495 for monochrome version, the P1-10" gives OEMs an operator interface with pre-installed HMI at extremely competitive pricing, claims CTC.

The P1-10" comes standard with the core modules of CTC's popular Interact HMI — panels tools, graphics, alarming and networking. It can also be bundled with optional Interact HMI modules and CTC's MachineLogic™ PC-based control software, providing one of industry's most affordable solutions to PC-based operator interface with a 10" display.

Industrially-hardened like all CTC PowerStations, the P1-10" model features Compact Flash storage memory for high reliability in factory-floor runtime environments, avoiding potential reliability problems with rotating disk drives. It comes standard with 16 MB Compact Flash memory and offers 32 MB and 128 MB as options. Designed to NEMA 4/4X standards, the P1-10" carries UL, CUL, and CE approvals. Suited to a wide range of industrial environments, it is rated for temperatures from 32°-122°F (0-50°C) and relative humidity from 5-95%. The P1-10" also offers slots for PC/104 expansion and measures 11" x 13.75" x 4.3" (279 x 349 x 110 mm) in H-W-D and weighs 13.4 lbs. (6.07 kg).

Since 1980, CTC has been designing, manufacturing, and marketing both hardware and software to provide factory –floor, machine-operator-interface solutions for automation projects worldwide. In 1998, CTC became a unit of the Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:PH), Cleveland, Ohio. With annual sales exceeding $6 billion, Parker Hannifin is the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of commercial, mobile, industrial and aerospace markets.
