March 16, 2018 – Beckhoff Automation announced the release of CP6x00 Control Panels and Panel PCs with 10.1-inch widescreen displays. The line of entry-level panels from Beckhoff, first launched with 7-inch displays, has been expanded by three cabinet-mounted devices, each with a 10.1-inch widescreen display.
The widescreen variants have a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) touch display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 WSVGA, which paves the way for operator interface and visualization options. Added to this is 16.7 million available colors on the 10.1-inch diagonal screen. The latest additions to the entry-level class from Beckhoff include two fanless Panel PCs and a purely passive Control Panel. These devices permit the implementation of control and visualization tasks for small and medium-sized machines, production systems and buildings.
