Panel Builder 800
The Panel 800 family is configured with the Panel Builder 800 tool. Based on the familiar Windows interface, Panel Builder 800 contains features like Project Manager, Symbol Manager, and a powerful simulation tool to enhance engineering efficiency and provide additional programming options. Panel Builder 800 is backwards compatible and can therefore also configure older Process Panels 200- and 300-series. It’s also possible to reuse an application from a Process Panel and load it into a Panel 800.
