Control Panel

Control Panel

Operating and display elements form an independent unit, separate from the control level. The computer is located in the control cabinet.This concept, which has been thoroughly implemented in the Beckhoff Control Panel, allows the user much freedom.

The CP6xxx and CP7xxx series Control Panels are designed for use as a human-machine interface. Operating and display elements create an independent unit, separated from the control level. The Control Panel has a flat, elegant form, with a large surface presented to the user, but a low depth. The PC is protected in the control cabinet, yet its location is easily accessible. The PC housing can be optimised for fitting PC components.

Beckhoff Control Panel

Functionality and esthetic design in aluminium: the Control Panel housing is machined from an aluminium block. Aluminium is a material with many advantages. It has low weight, high strength, enormous resistance to environmental stresses, can easily be machined and is entirely recyclable. All this can be seen and felt in the Beckhoff Control Panel.

 

The display is the basis

High-quality TFT displays, with even illumination and long service life, ensure the key requirement: the picture must be right.

For an optimum image the PC should be adjusted to the resolution of the display: 5.7- and 6.5-inch displays have a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels, 12-inch displays 800 x 600, 15-inch Control Panels should have 1024 x 768 pixels, 19-inch displays 1280 x 1024 and 24-inch displays use the resolution 1920 x 1200.

The Control Panel can be fitted with a touch pad or with a touch screen.

What frame does an image need?

The carefully planned use of design elements gives the Control Panel its reserved and elegant appearance.

The open design possibilities of a membrane keyboard are fully exploited here. The robust keyboard ensures that the IP 65 protection class is retained as if new, even after long use in a tough industrial environment.

Light emitting diodes are integrated into the keys, while slide-in labels mean that exchangeable key identification can match the needs of the plant.

 

The emergency stop at the Control Panel

Push-button extensions in the design of the Control Panel make it thicker, but permit the application-specific arrangement of electromechanical keys and other components such as all kinds of switches, barcode scanners, graycode switches and handwheels. External housings can be attached to either side of the Control Panel. The signal leads may be laid separately or can be operated via USB.

 

Assembly

The back plate of the Control Panel series CP7xxx offers a free surface for a variety of assembly methods, for example a mounting arm system.

Control Panel for installation in the control cabinet door

The built-in Control Panels CP6xxx are designed for control cabinet installation. Only 4 mm of the front are visible in front of the control cabinet wall. Installation via pull-out clamping levers makes the process very simple without loose parts.

The built-in Control Panels CP66xx are available with 5.7-, 6.5-, 12- or 15-inch TFT display, CP69xx in addition with 19- or 24-inch TFT display, with touch screen or touch pad, as a monitor without keyboard with different membrane keyboard models up to full alphanumeric keyboards with 10 PLC special keys and 10 LEDs. The same range of push-button extensions with electromechanical keys as for the CP7xxx series is available.

 

The built-in Control Panels are connected to the PC by two different interfaces:

The Ethernet Control Panels with integrated processor can be used as an independent controller. For higher performance with Intel® Core™ Duo and Core™2 Duo the built-in Panel PCs CP62xx are available with the same front design.
