Milford, Ohio — Parker’s Electromechanical Automaton Division announces the release of a new, affordable HMI platform for the successful Interact software platform. Designed to fit into the existing cutouts of many common 6” HMI products — including Parker’s own P1, P1H, P1P and Motion Panel — the P13 PowerStation is the perfect replacement for existing 6” HMIs.
Every P13 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.
P13 PowerStations are 100% software compatible with existing P1 family applications — a replacement can be made by simply downloading the project into a P13. Every P13 PowerStation includes a powerful new AMD LX700 CPU, 128MB of DRAM and a 256MB CompactFlash® 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 P13 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 P13 family comes with a ¼ VGA TFT display standard and optionally offers a VGA resolution TFT display.
Bundling Interact with the P13 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® for development, with a highly reliable runtime environment.
Parker’s CTC HMI hardware and software are designed and tested under the same roof, and all PowerStations include an industry leading 24-month warranty.
