Panel-PC 8000

Optimum machine control and oper­ation. Two PC104+ slots for ad­dit­io­nal in­ter­face cards make the device a real all-rounder

Key Features

  • Robust terminal for the control of machines
  • Powerful and energy-saving Intel Atom processor
  • Expansion slots for individual adaption
  • Mounting arm attachment for flexible placement


Equipment and display
The 1.1 GHz Atom processor ensures low en­er­gy con­sum­p­tion. There are 512 MB RAM avail­a­ble as well as an inserted SD card with 2 GB for app­li­ca­tions. The resistive touch screen and the mem­brane key­board allow data to be vi­su­a­lized and software com­po­nents to be op­e­rated. The Panel-PC 8000 is therefore ideally suited as HMI for machine control.

The terminal provides two CAN interfaces for con­nec­tion to field­bus net­works, which are im­ple­men­ted via an M12 socket and an M12 plug. Ex­ter­nal peripherals such as mouse, key­board or memory sticks can be easily con­nec­ted via two USB 2.0 inter­faces. The third M12 con­nec­tor is used as Ethernet port. With a bandwidth of 100 Mbit/s, it can be used for connecting to the network or for direct data transfer.


Flexibility through PCI slots
Two expansion slots allow the integration of further interfaces. As with the IPC-4, various var­i­ants are available for this purpose: CAN, FireWire, digital and analog inputs and out­puts, Profibus. In addition, many other functions can be integrated according to customer specifications. The Panel-PC 8000 can be used as a standard HMI or upgraded to a specific control solution.

Robust design
HMIs in production plants can sometimes be exposed to temperature fluctuations, spray water and mechanical influences. Therefore, when designing the Panel-PC, great impor­tance was attached to a robust con­struc­tion. The connectors prevent water from pen­e­tra­ting into the interior of the housing by sealing it to the inside. In addition, the mem­brane key­board with large buttons is also suitable for oper­a­tion with gloves. A support arm mount also allows the device to be in­stal­led outside the switch cabinet.
