Allen-Bradley’s new PanelView 800 graphic terminals
November 2015, Industrial Computer Hardware, Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays


Rockwell Automation has reduced boot-up time and increased installation flexibility with the new space-saving Allen-Bradley PanelView 800 family of graphic terminals.

The terminals, available in 4, 7 and 10-inch display sizes, feature an 800 MHz CPU processor, up to 256 MB of flash, and dynamic memory to reduce boot-up time, making it two times faster than the previous PanelView Component terminal. The terminals also offer improved touch-screen responsiveness and can be configured in portrait and standard landscape mode for greater installation flexibility.

“The PanelView 800 family of terminals builds on the Rockwell Automation Connected Components Workbench software’s value of giving machine builders simplified engineering, easy configuration, faster installation and reduced start-up time,” said Christo Buys, business manager control systems, Rockwell Automation southern Africa. “This family of graphic terminals is ideally suited for meeting control and visualisation requirements in a wide range of simple, standalone applications, such as pump stations, packaging machines, labelers and stretch-wrap machines.”

The PanelView 800 graphic terminals are specifically designed for use with the Allen Bradley Micro800 and MicroLogix control systems. The terminals’ high-resolution screens with LED backlights can display up to 65,536 colours, providing a sharp display for a wide range of applications. Built-in Ethernet and serial communications ports (RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485) support easier controller connectivity, while USB and microSD ports make file transfers easier. The terminals are also certified for Class 1, Division 2 hazardous locations.

The Connected Components Workbench software Release 8.0, which includes support for the PanelView 800 graphic terminals, gives machine builders a common environment to program the Micro800 controllers, as well as to configure the Allen-Bradley PowerFlex drives and Allen-Bradley Guardmaster safety relays.

The standard edition is free, and Release 8.0 includes support for the Guardmaster

440C-CR30 safety relay Ethernet plug-in for communications to Micro800 and Allen-Bradley CompactLogix controllers; the Micro800 high-speed counter plug-in

feedback axis to ease motion programming; and Micro800 DeviceNet scanner plug-in diagnostics to ease troubleshooting DeviceNet-connected devices.

Users can also purchase the developer edition, which includes an archive manager to track the project with a timestamp and description, making device management easier. The developer edition also offers an enhanced Micro800 programming experience, with intellectual property protection, user-defined data types, a spy list to monitor variables easier, and the ability to make program logic changes while in run mode.
