Beckhoff Automation has extended its Control Panel and Panel PC series with a larger 24-inch display. The new widescreen display, with its high resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, is ideal for complex, graphical user interfaces and for information that must be visible from a distance. The new displays can be equipped with an optional touch screen. The panels also can be customized for maximum flexibility.

In many industrial IT and automation applications, there is a developing trend towards large operating and display devices. The areas of application are varied and include data acquisition from production, computer-aided manufacturing and human-machine interface (HMI). The robust, water- and dust-proof design of the aluminum panels makes them suitable for application directly on machines or installed elsewhere on the plant floor.

The 24-in. displays are available in Beckhoff Panel PC variants (CP6204, CP7204) with integrated CPUs for IPC, automation, PLC and motion control tasks and as “display-only” Control Panels (CP6904, CP7904). The CP6204 and CP7204 Panel PCs have processors up to Intel Core 2 Duo. The Control Panel cases are made of high-quality, solid aluminum. The compact panels from the CP7xxx series offer IP65 protection. Housings of the “built-in” CP6xxx Panel series have protection class IP20 at the back and IP65 at the front. Beckhoff Industrial PCs are compatible with these new panels and their resolution size of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels.

Each panel also can be customized. Options include visual adaptations, application of customer logos, specific front laminates, special mechanical keys, emergency stop switches, or card scanners. The new panels extend range of display sizes (5.7, 6.5, 12, 15, 19-in.)

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
