installation for machine builders and manufacturers. One highlight of the CP79xx panels is the integrated DVI/USB extension technology, enabling installation at distances up to 164 feet (50 meters) from the machine controller or PC. This provides greater flexibility to install human-machine interface (HMI) hardware in the most convenient locations for machine operators, helping optimize plant floor operations. Following the previously released CP72xx Panel PCs, also for mounting-arm installation, the CP79xx Control Panel series is for applications that require only the TFT display hardware and do not need an integrated PC processor. In order to achieve a distance of 164 feet (50 meters) without hubs, the panels’ USB extension converts the USB signal and transfers it via 50-meter CAT5 cables that are commonly used for Ethernet wiring. The signal is converted back to USB 1.1 when it reaches the Control Panel.
