May 12, 2017 – By systematically integrating advanced multi-touch technologies into its Control Panel and Panel PC portfolio, Beckhoff has provided machine builders, manufacturers and numerous industries with operator interface concepts for years. With the company’s CPX Control Panel and Panel PC series, applications in hazardous areas, classified Zone 2/22, can now also benefit.
The CPX portfolio offers a selection of screen formats, sizes, installation options and features. The range of formats includes 15 inch (4:3), 19 inch (5:4), and 21.5 inch (16:9 widescreen) versions. This means that process industry applications can now also benefit from capacitive multi-touch technology.
To ensure that all application requirements are fulfilled, both the CPX29xx and CPX39xx series offer Control Panels for integration into control cabinets, as well as IP 65-rated standalone panels for mounting-arm installation. The same applies for the fanless Panel PCs in the CPX27xx and CPX37xx series.
Beckhoff offers system-integrated solutions for explosion protection with a portfolio of explosion-proof components. In addition to the Control Panels and Panel PCs in the new CPX series, Beckhoff has also introduced the new ELX series EtherCAT Terminals with I/O interfaces for field device connection through to Ex Zone 0/20, as well as TwinCAT control software with an expanded range of interfaces specific to process technology.
