ifm electronic (Germany) offers a panel PC specially designed for setting and observing object recognition and identification systems. It enables full parameter setting of the products as well as continuous process visualisation. This ensures optimal control for the local plant operator.
THE INDUSTRIALLY COMPATIBLE small computer is equipped with a 12,1-inch touch-screen with a resolution of 1 024 x 768 pixel. It features a fan-less Intel Atom N270 processor with a clock frequency of 1,6 GHz, 1 GiB RAM and a 2 GiB compact flash card as a robust hard disc substitute.
Windows XP Embedded has been installed as operating system, besides the ifm user software, for the vision sensors.
The interfaces available to the user are WLAN, USB 2.0, Gbit LAN, CAN, EIA-232, EIA-422 and EIA‑485. The power consumption of 32 W combined with a fan-less design form a basis for a continuous use of the display. When installed in the control panel the front face of the plastic housing has a protection rating of IP64.
