Introducing PanelMate ePro PS Outdoor Series and Enterprise Edition
EATON INTRODUCES TWO NEW OPERATOR INTERFACE MODELS TO EXPAND CUTLER-HAMMER® PANELMATE® ePRO PS FAMILY
PITTSBURGH … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation (NYSE:ETN) today announced the release of two new models to its PanelMate® ePro PS Operator Interface that address unique electrical applications.
The new Outdoor Series (OD) and Enterprise Edition (EE) models feature high performance, cost-effective operator interfaces (OI) based on the PanelMate ePro PS platform, which sets the standard for hybrid OI systems by combining the flexibility of Microsoft® Windows® XP Embedded technology with solid-state hardware design and exclusive Protect Mode™ that provides protection for the operating system and software.
OD Series Addresses Demanding Conditions
The OD Series has new features that make the ePro PS suitable for direct sunlight readability and extend the environmental ratings for harsh outdoor applications. The OD models (7685T-120D and 7685ST-120D) have built-in anti-glare, anti-reflective and anti-UV coatings that provide superb visibility in direct sunlight. The OD Series uses passive display enhancement technology to achieve temperature and shock ratings allowing it to be used in applications where other displays will not survive.
EE Models Deliver Performance and Flexibility
The EE models (7865T-12E, 7685T-15E and 7600E) provide a more comprehensive set of Windows XP components and services. By adding Microsoft XP components such as .NET framework, IIS Server and Outlook® Express to the standard ePro PS operation system image, the ePro PS EE provides greater extensibility than any embedded platform on the market. The ePro PS EE models also have increased processor performance and CompactFlash® capacity.
Both editions feature the performance and flexibility of a PC-based operator interface without the associated complexity of a PC. A wide variety of applications can be deployed on the ePro PS OD and EE editions via integrated high-speed Ethernet, serial ports, USB ports, optional removable CompactFlash®, PCMCIA and an optional PCI expansion adapter. The new editions also support many third-party software packages that interface directly to the runtime software. A multitude of non-volatile memory and input devices make the ePro PS OD and EE models the most flexible OI devices in the outdoor display and industrial control markets.
Both models also feature a built-in Protect Mode that locks out all unauthorized modifications to the operating system in addition to protecting critical application programs and drivers. The interface is configured with ePro Canvas editing software that supports a modern suite of graphical templates for replacing hard-wired panel devices. The new controls allow existing PanelMate users to upgrade the look of their applications while keeping the same familiar user interface. Additionally, multi-language support allows users to create a single configuration supporting any combination of languages.
The PanelMate ePro PS OD and EE carry UL®, cUL®, CSA®, Class 1 Div 2, and CE Mark certification meeting NEMA® 4, 4X, 12 and IP65 ratings when installed in a correspondingly rated enclosure.
