Compact, low-cost option for HMI and visualization

19 Sep 2017

Beckhoff has introduced the new CP6906 Control Panel display. Offering a 7" touchscreen with 800 x 480 WVGA resolution, and a robust housing consisting of an aluminum bezel and sheet steel rear cover, this passive display answers applications with pronounced budgetary constraints, without sacrificing quality. Manufactured in Germany, the CP6906 is intended for engineers seeking to add a reliable, compact interface at a low cost. Once combined with a controller, such as a DIN rail mounted CX series Embedded PC or a cabinet mounted Industrial PC (IPC) from Beckhoff, the result is an inexpensive and compact control and HMI solution for machines, plants, buildings, and other equipment. For maximum installation flexibility, the CP6906 integrates DVI/USB Extended technology, enabling remote operation as far as 50m away from the PC.
