The CP6xxx and CP7xxx control panels offer a balance between the latest PC technology and long-term availability of control components.
Together with the software employed, Control Panels in the most diverse form factors act as the centerpiece of a variety of automation tasks, such as the control of machines, processes and logistic systems, the networking of plant parts, the data acquisition or image processing. For classic control tasks, PC-based control technology offers excellent scalability and flexibility and is therefore increasingly being used in place of hardware PLCs.
Single-touch technology with guaranteed long-term availability
Even though advanced multi-touch operating scenarios have become indispensable in industrial applications as a result of general digitization, there is still a large market for single-touch applications. These applications are frequently realized with the help of resistive touch technology. Beckhoff has been using this technology successfully in a large number of single-touch Control Panels for over 20 years.
