BEIJER Electronics has signed a new agreement with ABB , regarding the supply of operator terminals based on Beijer’s power panel (BEPP) platform.
This was launched in late 2004. The first deliveries, under Beijer’s proprietary brand Exter, began early this year.
The latest agreement covers five terminals: three with touch screens and two with key panels.
ABB will market and sell the terminals globally under its proprietary brand and design.
The terminals will be customised to ABB’s needs by integrating them with ABB’s control system through the adaptation of hardware as well as software.
The first deliveries to ABB are estimated to begin in early 2006.
Beijer Electronics, which has representation in Australia via Global Automation Asia-Pacific , has delivered terminals to ABB since late 2001.
