July 10, 2014 – Beckhoff Automation released the CP22xx Panel PC series. Designed for cabinet installation, the CP22xx series combines the advantages of a modern multi-touch interface with high-performance multi-core processors for automation and control applications.
Equipped with powerful multi-core CPUs – Intel Celeron, Core i3, i5 (all with 2 cores) or i7 (4 cores) of the 3rd and 4th generation – the CP22xx Panel PCs achieve maximum computing power for the most demanding industrial applications. Adding to the flexibility of the CP22xx series is a range of available screen sizes from 12- to 24-inch, so the most challenging control and HMI tasks can be solved while precisely matching the devices to application-specific requirements. Widescreen display orientations in landscape and portrait formats are also available, adding even more variety to the product lineup. The CP22xx features a free Mini-PCI slot for factory-installed cards, 2 GB DDR3-RAM (extendable to 16 GB), a hard disk, a CFast card or SSD, an on-board dual Ethernet adapter with 10/100/1000Base-T connection and an on-board SATA RAID-1 controller (Intel Rapid Storage Technology). The equipment also includes a serial RS232 interface and four USB 2.0 ports as well as up to four further optional Ethernet ports. For applications that require mounting arm installation, the Beckhoff CP3xxx series is also available with all-round IP 65 protection, offering a similarly extensive range of multi-touch Panels and Panel PCs.
