Multi-touch HMI with widescreen panel
September 2015, Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays

The popular CP2xxx and CP3xxx multi-touch panel series from Beckhoff are complemented by new 11,6 inch devices in 16:9 widescreen format. The display range now comprises a total of nine models: 7 inch, 11,6 inch, 15,6 inch, 18,5 inch, 21,5 inch and 24 inch in widescreen format; 12 inch, 15 inch and 19 inch in the conventional 4:3 format.

With this wide range of options, the multi-touch panel series from Beckhoff now offers the modern widescreen format in the fine scalability offered by traditional 4:3 HMIs. Another bonus is the high resolution of the new 11,6 inch display, at 1366 x 768 pixels. This matches the impressive resolution of the 15,6 inch and 18,5 inch devices, enabling the use of an existing visualisation on HMIs in three different sizes without additional engineering effort. This is particularly beneficial for machine builders that use a uniform user interface for their machine range and want to scale the operating panel according to the machine size in a simple and cost-effective manner.

The new widescreen devices are available as built-in Panel PCs (CP26xx and CP27xx) as well as built-in (CP29xx) or mounting arm (CP39xx) Control Panels. All Beckhoff multi-touch panels in the mounting arm configuration feature a high-quality housing machined from aluminium with metal perimeter protection for the display front.
