Drop-In HMI Panel

July 1, 2004
The PA PowerStation family of panels is designed as an easy drop-in replacement for many popular panel products. Available with 5-, 6-, 8- and 10-inch color touch screen displays, the PA PowerStation family combines the connectivity, functionality and expandability of the vendor’s Interact HMI software with many standard features that cost extra on competitive models, says the vendor.

Standard hardware features include CompactFlash storage, RS-232, RS-422/485 and 100BaseT Ethernet ports, while Interact software provides the ease-of-use of Windows for development, with a highly reliable runtime environment. PA PowerStations are expandable with Interact software modules such as Historical Trending and advanced Recipe Management. Flexibility is provided with 50 standard communication drivers, including Ethernet drivers. The PA family also comes with a flat-panel display and 32 MB system memory.
