Products 4 Automation (P4A) has launched a range of Industrial Panel PC’s compatible with the popular Movicon 11 SCADA software from Emerson.
Pixsys Industrial Panel PC’s are manufactured in Europe and supported by Products 4 Automation here in the UK.
The hardware is from the Pixsys range of Industrial Panel PCs, offer high resolution touch screens in 7”, 10.4”, 12.1″, 15″, 18.5″ and 21.5” size options. The casing is high-strength aluminium which sets them apart from plastic alternatives and makes them ideal for most panel, process, and machine applications.
The body is relatively slim at only 30 mm deep and has communication ports for RS232, RS485, CANbus, Ethernet and USB. The on-board soft PLC of the Pixsys unit offers both cost and practicality advantages, allowing higher level system control functionality without the need to add separate PLC hardware.
The Industrial Panel PC is designed for direct connection of I/O expansion blocks. These can be mounted directly onto the back of the IPC to keep the footprint compact, or separately on DIN rail. The larger models are able to accommodate two rear mounted units. Each rear mounted I/O block provides 16 digital connections, all of which can be configured as either inputs or outputs, plus four high accuracy 16-bit analogue outputs. In keeping with the concept of easy fitting and installation, push-fit spring terminals allow for fast, fuss-free wiring. The DIN rail mounted versions come in a variety of configuration to suit the user’s needs, including 16DI, 16D0 plus analogue input / output variants.
The operating system is Windows 10 IOT, providing the latest security for your environment, with a choice of storage and ram.
These units are fully compatible with Movicon 11 SCADA which provides functions such as vector graphic objects, dataloggers, schedulers, trend analysers and alarm management, as well as OPC and web client / server technologies. It is compatible with all industry standard network communication protocols and a wide range of third-party drivers including Siemens S7-TCP, Mitsubishi MELSEC and Omron TRI-TCP.
