ABB Announces CP600-Pro Multi-Touch HMI Control Panels

ABB’s CP600-Pro is designed for applications requiring glass touch-screens for information display and operation.

ABB has introduced a control panel portfolio, expanding upon the current CP600 platform to provide HMI for applications and challenging installations. The CP600-Pro ensures operation within an environmental temperature range of -4 through 140 °F, and features a glass touch-screen for information display. Aluminum front frames ensure IP66 protection, and the all black front design is a match for multiple applications either in landscape or portrait format.

Available in 5, 7, 10.1, 15.6 and 21.5 inch screen sizes, the panels provide HMI functions with multi-touch operation. Three Ethernet interfaces, one with 10/100/1000 Mbit, support up to three networks. With an OPC UA server and client protocol, the CP600-Pro is prepared for TSN connectivity.  A serial port enables integration of products without network interfaces, and USB ports and SD cards facilitate backups and system updates.

Like the other control panels in the CP600 platform, the CP600-Pro is compatible with ABB’s AC500 and AC500-eCo PLCs, and includes all standard HMI functions such as alarm management, schedulers, recipes, trends, data acquisition, gateway function and user management.

The CP600-Pro can be configured and programmed with Panel Builder 600, which allows the creation of graphical HMI pages. This programming tool offers numerous configuration options, which can be complemented by JavaScript for the design of tailor-made user interfaces. It includes libraries of vector graphics and a set of widgets so that applications can be designed.

The programming tool features an HMI simulator ensuring set up either offline or online. HTML5 pages enable remote access to HMI applications via smartphone or other mobile devices.
