CP6606 Built-in Panel PC with ARM Cor­tex A8 CPU for cost-sen­si­tive ap­pli­ca­tions

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

The CP6606 ‘Econ­omy’ Panel PC is ideally suited to the re­quire­ments of ma­chine builders and man­u­fac­tur­ers in cost-sen­si­tive mar­ket seg­ments. The all-in-one com­pact con­troller com­bines a TFT touch dis­play (800 x 480 WVGA) in seven inch for­mat with a pow­er­ful 1 GHz ARM Cor­tex A8 CPU and 1 GB DDR3 RAM.

The fan­less CP6606, de­signed for con­trol cab­i­net in­stal­la­tion, is ideally suited for use as a com­pact, in­ex­pen­sive Con­trol Panel. In com­bi­na­tion with TwinCAT au­to­ma­tion soft­ware, the Panel PC be­comes a f lex­i­ble au­to­ma­tion con­troller for small and medium-size ma­chines, pro­duc­tion plants or build­ings. With TwinCAT OPC UA sup­port the Panel PC can also be used as an OPC UA Client or Server, thus of­fer­ing ex­ten­sive con­nec­tiv­ity and re­mote ac­cess func­tions.

“Be­yond the high-qual­ity colour touch screen, the CP6606 Panel PC im­presses with its ro­bust hous­ing with alu­minium front and sheet-steel rear cover, sur­pass­ing the qual­ity and dura­bil­ity of the plas­tic pan­els typ­i­cally found in the low-cost mar­ket­place,” ex­plains Frank Teepe, In­dus­trial PC Prod­uct Man­ager at Beckhoff. The slightly curved front panel of the CP6606 fur­ther en­hances the at­trac­tive ap­pear­ance of the de­vice.

With an op­er­at­ing tem­per­a­ture range from 0 to 55°C (stor­age tem­per­a­ture range -25 to + 65°C) plus the panel front with IP 54 pro­tec­tion and the rear side with IP 20 pro­tec­tion, the CP6606 can also with­stand de­mand­ing plant en­vi­ron­ments. More­over, the fan­less ‘Econ­omy’ Panel PC of­fers in­creased re­li­a­bil­ity, since it does with­out ro­tat­ing parts. A mi­croSD card with a high­qual­ity SLC Flash is used as stor­age medium. Equip­ment in­cludes an RS232 in­ter­face, two USB 2.0 ports, an Eth­er­net con­nec­tion, an EtherCAT con­nec­tion and a 24-V power sup­ply.
