Hoffman Estates, IL â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€œ Rexrothâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s IndraControl VDP, VSB and VPB series of PC-Based HMIs are designed for applications where the PC and operator panel must be kept separate, giving machine designers an embedded HMI with the full power of a PC but with more options to increase reliability.
The VDP/VSB/VPB series are part of Rexrothâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s IndraControl V family of PC-Based HMIs, which use cutting-edge flash card and Windows XP technology and a complete range of control options so equipment designers can satisfy requirements for specific machinery or unique operating environments.
With a scalable platform for different applications, this second generation of PC-based HMIs allows OEMs to build in both reliability and functionality by locating the industrial PC in a protected enclosure and putting the durable operator panel directly on the machine.
The VDP/VSB/VPB series is well-suited for applications involving machine start-ups, gantries, printing and converting, food and packaging, material handling and line transfers. With options for keypads or touchscreens, these HMIs provide intelligent, easy-to-use controls for inputting values, jogging axes, recipe management, connecting to hierarchy databases, trending and supervisory-level HMI functions.
These latest additions to Rexrothâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s PC-based HMIs feature a faster 2.13MHz Celeron processor for more performance. RAM is increased up to 4GB and memory up to 80GB, enabling machine builders to take full advantage of the systemâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s PC power. The HMIs can also be used as a soft PLC with a ProfiNet master.
For increased system stability, the processor box has an option for an SSD card which eliminates moving parts and improves durability. In addition, since the panel mounts separately, it can be hot-swapped for quicker recovery in an emergency.
IndraControl VDP/VSB/VPB HMIs are available in sizes ranging from a 12-inch display to a 17-inch display. Depending on the application, options are available for protection class IP65, operational vibration resistance from 0.25 up to 1g, and shock vibration resistance up to 5g. A USB port on the panel front offers extra functionality for connecting a memory stick, auxiliary keyboard or mouse.
