Milford, OH ‚â€“ Parker‚â€™s Electromechanical Automaton Division announces the release of a new, affordable HMI platform for the successful Interact software platform. The PA15T PowerStation family offers the largest display size ever in the PA Family. The PA15T is designed to fit into the existing cutouts of many common 15‚â€ HMI products, including Parker‚â€™s own PS15 model.
Every PA15T PowerStation comes with the award-winning Interact HMI software runtime pre-installed, simplifying initial configuration and commissioning. Interact is a feature-rich software package that can be tailored to meet the needs of any Level 1 HMI project.
PA15T PowerStations are 100% software compatible with existing PS family applications ‚â€“ a replacement can be made by simply downloading the project into a PA15T. Every PA15T PowerStation includes a powerful new AMD LX700 CPU, 128MB of DRAM and a 512MB CompactFlash‚Â® card standard. In addition, the hardware includes 2 serial ports (one RS-232 and one RS232/422/485 configurable), 100 BaseT Ethernet port and 24VDC power. All PA15T units are passively cooled, allowing these units to be deployed in the harshest environments as there are no rotating media storage devices or fans of any kind. The PA15T family comes with a 15‚â€ 1024 X 768 TFT display standard. The PA15T makes an excellent replacement for existing PS12 and PS15 applications, offering drop-in cutout compatibility for the PS15 applications and only requiring a slightly larger cutout for PS12 applications.
Bundling Interact with the PA15T PowerStation gives users the best possible system performance with high reliability. Interact remains one of most powerful and expandable Level 1 HMI packages available, with basic panel tools, graphics, alarming and networking capabilities included in the base configuration. It also offers such options as recipes, reporting, historical trending, machine configuration and even custom user programs. It provides the ease of use of Windows‚Â® for development with a highly reliable runtime environment.
Parker‚â€™s CTC HMI hardware and software are designed and tested under the same roof, and all PowerStations include an industry leading 24-month warranty.
