Panel Controller

The Panel Controller p500 series from Lenze is maintenance free and robust, and is suited as a machine-oriented visualisation and control platform. Combined with the Lenze software for control, motion and visualisation and a coordinated product portfolio, users can take the panel controller as the basis for realising automation systems which are perfect for deployment in both centralised and decentralised architectures. The high computing power of the panel controller is provided by a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor. One gigabyte of internal main memory, two gigabytes of Flash memory to replace the conventional hard disk, and an SD card slot for application data make the p500 a powerful all-in-one solution for demanding visualisation applications that can be equipped with a soft PLC if required. The fanless devices in protection class IP65 (front), which were designed for machine-oriented installation, are especially compact and robust in the face of shocks and vibrations. Moreover, they are virtually maintenance free since a SuperCap capacitor is used instead of the standard buffer battery in the internal clock. Another special feature of the product is a maintenance-free internal UPS which automatically stores retain data in the event of a power cut. It can even be enlarged with an external UPS if need be. The basic features of the panel controller are two 100 MBit Ethernet interfaces with integrated switch, an EtherCAT interface (master) and two USB connections. Moreover, a slot is provided which can be used to add communication cards (e.g. CAN, PROFIBUS Slave) to the devices. The modular construction of the new devices makes it easy and quick to realise customer-specific facings.
