Rockwell Automation updates graphic terminal range
The latest Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 7 Performance graphic terminal expands on the recently released standard model, boasting a larger screen size, faster processor, software support and expanded connectivity.
Rockwell Automation, a manufacturer of industrial automation technologies, recently unveiled its Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 7 Performance graphic terminal.
Following the recently released PanelView Plus 7 Standard model, the updated variant boasts a larger screen size, faster processor, software support and expanded connectivity.
The new variant is available in six different screen-size options, which include a 19-inch screen that is designed to offer machine buildings more display area to design and control large applications. The feature is also coupled with additional keypad options intended to enhance the terminal’s standard touch screen.
In addition to a more powerful central processing unit, the PanelView Plus 7 Performance is equipped with an embedded Ethernet switch and two Ethernet ports. This enables the graphic terminal platform to support device level ring (DLR) topology for single-fault resiliency.
The expanded mobile connectivity features of the terminal enables plant managers to connect to centralised enterprise-level systems. These include ERP or MES through a thin-client connection. The addition of the FactoryTalk ViewPoint software, Rockwell Automation’s embedded webserver technology, enables end-users a greater visibility over plant KPIs through the utilisation of mobile devices.
Lastly, the PanelView Plus 7 Performance comes equipped with video playback support, as well as compatibility with a number of desktop applications. This includes Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer.
