Panel 800 is a user-friendly, intuitive and ergonomic operator panel that combines slim, space saving dimensions with a comprehensive range of advanced functions.
All panels are equipped with advanced functionality for process and equipment control, maneuvered either by function keys located next to the screen or by touching the LCD display. Combined with market leading performance and stunning graphical ability, the Panel 800 erodes the line between ordinary Operator Panels and PC based HMIs. Panel 800 is the successor after the Process Panels.
In December 2012, ABB launched the Panel 800 Version 6 series.
All Panel 800 Version 6 are developed to satisfy the demands of human-machine communication. Built-in functions such as displaying and controlling text, dynamic indication, time channels, alarm and recipe handling are included.
The Panel 800 Version 6 works primarily in an object-oriented way, making it easy to understand and use. Configuration is carried out on a PC using the Panel Builder configuration tool. The project can then be transferred and stored in the operator panel itself.
Various types of automation equipment such PLCs, servos or drives can be connected to the Panel 800 Version 6.
The Panel Builder software is used to configure operator panels PP871, PP874 and PP877. Panel Builder is installed on an engineering PC, where projects are developed, designed and compiled. The project is then run in an operator panel to observe and control.
Containing all basic functions needed in an application. The functions are tested and developed with customer needs and preferences in focus.
Pre-defined objects in Panel Builder can be used to create complete process images, providing an overview of a complex application. You can customize the pre-defined objects or create objects of your own.
Communication drivers for a large number of controllers and automation equipment are available.
