September 28, 2010 ‚Äì Beckhoff Automation introduces a 24-in. TFT Widescreen Display. The display, with its high resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, is ideal for complex, graphical user interfaces and for information that must be visible from a distance. These displays can be equipped with an optional touchscreen and can be customized for maximum flexibility. In many industrial IT and automation applications, there is a developing trend toward large operating and display devices. The areas of application are varied and include data acquisition from production, computer-aided manufacturing and HMI. The robust, water- and dust-resistant design of the aluminum panels makes them suitable for application directly on machines or installed elsewhere on the plant floor.The 24" panels extend the range of Beckhoff display sizes (5.7", 6.5", 12", 15", 19"). The 24" displays are currently available in Beckhoff Panel PC variants (CP6204, CP7204) with integrated CPUs for IPC, automation, PLC and motion control tasks and as ‚Äúdisplay-only‚Äù Control Panels (CP6904, CP7904). The CP6204 and CP7204 Panel PCs feature powerful processors up to Intel Core2 Duo. The Control Panel cases are made of high-quality, solid aluminum. The compact panels from the CP7xxx series offer all-round IP 65 protection. The housings of the ‚Äúbuilt-in‚Äù CP6xxx Panel series have protection class IP 20 at the back and IP 65 at the front. All Beckhoff Industrial PCs are compatible with these new panels and their resolution size of 1920 x 1200 pixels.A characteristic of Beckhoff‚Äôs entire Panel series, each 24‚Äù panel can also be customized. Options include visual adaptations, application of customer logos, specific front laminates, special mechanical keys, emergency stop switches, or card scanners.
