Jul. 5, 2017 – With the goal of providing high-quality industrial display solutions to cost-sensitive applications, Beckhoff Automation has introduced the CP6906 control panel display.
Offering a 7-in. touchscreen with 800 x 480 WVGA resolution, and a housing consisting of an aluminum bezel and sheet steel rear cover, the display promises to be the “ideal solution to answer applications with pronounced budgetary constraints – without sacrificing quality.” 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 a “very inexpensive and compact control and HMI solution” for machines, plants, buildings and other equipment, says the company. For increased installation flexibility, the CP6906 integrates DVI/USB Extended technology, enabling remote operation 50 m away from the PC.
