Siemens OP 019 is a CNC operator panel with advanced technology, enabling seamless design integration to the Sinumerik Operate graphical user interface and Sinumerik 840D sl CNC for use on high-end milling, turning, grinding, laser-cutting and other machine tools. With the benefit of modern touchscreen operation, this Sinumerik operator panel OP 019, now extended to include the new Power Control Unit (PCU) 50.5, allows high-speed key actuation at the large 19-inch glass front, which conforms to the IP66 protection rating. Another new feature of the OP 019 design is the wide LEDs, which allow the operator to visualize every key actuation no matter what the angle of vision, plus an integrated key lock that helps safeguard against operating errors. The operator panel is able to provide a basic machine display with three or four channels showing up to 13 axes.
