The popular CP2xxx and CP3xxx multi-touch panel series from Beckhoff are complemented by new 11.6-inch devices in 16:9 widescreen format. The display range now comprises a total of nine models: 7-inch, 11.6-inch, 15.6-inch, 18.5-inch, 21.5-inch and 24-inch in widescreen format; 12-inch, 15-inch and 19-inch in the conventional 4:3 format.
With this wide range of options, the multi-touch panel series from Beckhoff now offers the modern widescreen format in the fine scalability offered by traditional 4:3 HMIs. Another bonus is the high resolution of the new 11.6-inch display, at 1366 x 768 pixels. This matches the impressive resolution of the 15.6-inch and 18.5-inch devices, enabling the use of an existing visualisation on HMIs in three different sizes without additional engineering effort. This is particularly beneficial for machine builders that use a uniform user interface for their machine range and want to scale the operating panel according to the machine size in a simple and cost-effective manner.
The new widescreen devices are available as built-in Panel PCs (CP26xx and CP27xx) as well as built-in (CP29xx) or mounting arm (CP39xx) Control Panels. All Beckhoff multi-touch panels in the mounting arm configuration feature a high-Quality housing machined from aluminium with metal perimeter protection for the display front.
