Following CP72xx panel PC for mounting arm installation, Beckhoff Automation has presented CP79xx control panel series as a further member of the "Economy" family.
The highlight of the "Economy" panels is the DVI/USB extension connection. It enables devices to be installed at a distance of up to 50 m from the PC as standard.
The CP79xx "Economy" control panel series is designed for mounting arm installation. The right display size (6.5", 12", 15", or 19" TFT) and keyboard is thus available for any application.
The CP79xx IP 65 control panels are equipped with DVI/USB extended interface. The graphics signal is transferred directly via DVI cable over a distance of up to 50 m.
In order to realise a distance of 50 m without hubs, with USB extended the USB signal is converted so that it can be transferred via 50 m CAT5 cables commonly used for Ethernet wiring. In the control panel the signal is converted back to USB 1.1.
In addition to touch screen, membrane keyboard and push-button extension, a USB hub in the control panel enables connection of two external USB devices such as keyboard, mouse, USB stick or CD/DVD drive.
The CU8800 USB to USB extended converter box requires no auxiliary power supply. It has a USB input and an RJ 45 USB extended output.
The box is offered complete with all required cables as a cable set.
