Panel 800 Version 6: Selling points against competitors

Why use Panel 800?


Panel 800 Version 6 is a user-friendly, intuitive and ergonomic
operator panel that combines slim, space-saving dimensions with
a comprehensive range of advanced functionalities for process and
equipment controls accessible via touch-screen symbols.
Its comprehensive HMI functionalities such as alarm
management, trends, logging, recipes, schedulers and audit
trail are used in all applications and industries today.
Ease of Use
Ready-made templates, screens and project samples.
Intuitive engineering tool similar to Microsoft environment
(eg, ribbon menus), making it easy to learn.
Panel 800 supports multiple languages. A selected
language can be changed in run-time.
Panel Builder engineering tool supports seven languages
(ie, English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Simplified
Chinese and Traditional Chinese).
Shortcuts to create unique objects (eg, pre-made styles,
copy/paste, format painter, save default, create series,
etc.).
Support for conversion of existing PP800 version 5
projects.
Robust and reliable
Proven in use.
30 years experience of developing HMI.
Global installed base.
IP66 front casing able to withstand wet, dusty and
demanding environments.
No fan, rotating hard-drive, or moving parts that can
malfunction.
Suitable for operating in temperatures from -10 to 60C.
LED technology for backlight saves energy and extends
lifetime.
Truly open platform
Multi controller applications.
Data exchange regardless of brand.
Connectivity through OPC classic, OPC UA, SQL, FTP and
Webserver + VNC remote access.
Extensive range of brand-specific communication drivers.
State-of-the-art graphics
Vector-based graphics in development tool.
Animated GIF and 3D effects.
Unique and intelligent navigation objects. Intuitive and
space saving.

TFT display produces sharp and detailed images from all


angles.
Dimmable, high-resolution display with fast touch response.
Clear and easy-to-read widescreen displays that fit more
objects on screen and have a better viewing angle.
Note:
Panel Builder 800 Version 6 and the new panels PP87x and
PP88x are not compatible with older Panel 800 products, neither
can Panel Builder 5.1 be used to configure the new panels.
The standard range of new-generation Panel 800 are
PP871, PP874 and PP877. The high-performance panels
are PP882 and PP885.
PP87x with article numbers 3BSE069270R2,
3BSE069271R2, 3BSE069272R2 or higher are UL 508and DNV-certified. The PP88x series are UL 508-certified,
with DNV certification to be available soon.
The OPC client cannot connect with Compact and System
800xA OPC servers.
Power supply connection, including connections for serial
communication, has changed.
Panel Builder 800 Version 5 projects can be imported to
run on the new hardware, allowing these to take advantage
of the new features of Panel 800 Version 6. This means
users do not need to configure projects from the beginning.
However, it is necessary to do minor adaptations as several
features, such as the number of function keys, LED, screen
resolution and communication ports, are different.
Objects, symbols and text sizes are automatically resized
to fit the new screen. However, it is not guaranteed that
these will be proportional to each other.
Controller settings will need to be configured.

Where to sell? Typical applications and markets

Competitive Review

Panel 800 is used in all industrial applications, except where


Ex or a similar feature is needed. Some typical applications
are as follows:

Why Panel 800 instead of Rockwell?


Hardware-wise, Panel 800s casing is built to withstand
tough environments while meeting IP66 rating standards.
Software-wise, Panel 800 has enhanced graphics and
added functionality.
Panel 800 offers control logics support for Rockwell driver.
By allowing users to configure the system using the familiar
Microsoft environment, Panel 800 makes engineering
easy.
Panel 800 is less expensive in general.
With its extensive drive library, Panel 800 supports various
communication drivers. Rockwell is limited to its own.
Panel 800 supports multi-controller applications, including
automation equipment from other vendors, for a truly open
platform.

Food & Beverage (milk, juice, beer, soft drinks):


Pasteurization, carbonation, blending, storage silos and
filling/packaging.
Food & Beverage (pre-packaged cooked food):
Cooking, pasteurization, retorting (canned food) and filling/
packaging.
Water/Wastewater: Effluent monitoring, potable water
monitoring, flood control/alarming, reservoir monitoring,
Irrigation monitoring, pumping stations and general process
(pressure, flow, temperature).
Boilers: Steam output, feedwater usage and water quality
analysis.
Pharmaceuticals: Sterilizers, freeze dyers and
environmental monitoring.
OEM Skids: Water/wastewater, chemical dosing and heat
exchangers.
Energy: Electrical power generation and gas distribution
Automotive: Tire curing presses and heat treatment
furnaces.
General process (standalone or with DCS): Chemical,
metals, other food (sugar, additives), oil and gas, paper/
pulp, mining and marine.
