Kollmorgen announces Automation Suite  HMI panels

January 9, 2015 - Kollmorgen introduces IP65-rated Automation Suite HMI touchscreen panels that feature a single-surface screen with widescreen format, a rugged aluminum chassis housing, and configuration and screen building software as standard features.

All models provide Ethernet, are quickly and easily programmed with the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder  graphical tool, and feature display and input capabilities ideally suited for use in a wide range of packaging, food processing, and printing machinery applications. The HMI panels are also well suited for use in material forming, laboratory automation and test and measurement applications, amongst others.

The HMI uses a 16:9 format and provides up to 30% more usable screen area than previous generation models. All standard models also feature integrated Ethernet, as well as data logging and trending software. Nine different panels can all be programmed using the same premium software. 

For OEMs already using Kollmorgen Automation Suite  for machine control, adding HMI is much simpler with Kollmorgen panels. Variables are automatically mapped from the PLC to the HMI so programming is simplified and takes significantly less time compared with other options.
