Advantech, a leading provider of industrial computing platforms, is pleased to announce its new SPC-800 series of arm-mounted human-machine interfaces (HMI) with full IP66-rated protection that provides a cabinet-free solution for operation in challenging industrial environments.
Advantech’s SPC-800 series features an integrated support arm system mount adapter and a customizable extension unit to facilitate diverse visualization and control applications. The achievement of IP66-rated ingress protection and IEC 61131-2/61010 certification verifies the system’s robustness and suitability for operation in a wide range of challenging industrial environments. The extension unit supports a wide range of additional peripherals and controls such as an RFID reader, key-operated selector switches, LED indicators, pushbuttons, and emergency stop buttons. This allows the system to be flexibly configured and the functionalities expanded for specific usage requirements. The integrated mount adapter supports both pendant and pedestal mounting to enable optimal positioning and ergonomic control. Available in a 15” (SPC-815) or 21” (SPC-821) form factor, the system’s ultra-slim (25-mm wide front bezel), lightweight, snap-fit design allows for single-person installation, ensuring easy deployment.
IP66-rated ingress protection ensures reliable operation
The system’s IP66 rating for protection from dust and water ensures reliable operation in harsh industrial environments. Moreover, the silicon-free design prevents silicone contamination from negatively impacting various assembly processes including soldering, adhesive bonding, coating, and wire bonding, thereby ensuring the highest level of safety. Additionally, the achievement of IEC 61131-2/61010 certification further verifies the system safety and robustness to ensure unrivaled reliability for industrial control applications.
Customizable extension unit with integrated controls
With the integration of a customizable extension unit, the system functions can be flexibly configured according to specific application requirements, offering an endless number of potential configurations. The extension unit supports a wide range of additional peripherals and controls, such as an RFID/NFC reader, key-operated selector switches, LED indicators, push buttons, and emergency stop buttons. Furthermore, the extension unit is designed to be compatible with RAFI-branded control components and all wires are integrated through the internal hub.
Flexible mounting for cabinet-free installation
The SPC-800 series is equipped with a support arm mount adaptor that allows the system to be deployed outside the control cabinet. Cables are routed through the swing arm to an I/O wiring area that can be accessed without dismounting the device. This not only ensures easy access to the power supply, Ethernet, and USB ports, but also enables the use of standard connectors.
Meanwhile, the integrated mount adapter supports both CP 40 (Rittal) and CS-480 (Bernstein) suspension systems for pendant and pedestal mounting to enable optimal positioning and ergonomic control.
