Rockwell announces PanelView Plus 7 Performance models

Late last week Rockwell Automation issued a press release officially announcing the PanelView Plus 7 Performance line of HMI’s.

08-20-15 PanelView Plus 7 PerformanceStating the new product “simplifies visualization for large applications,” Rockwell stressed the fact that this HMI could “reduce need for multiple HMIs, or replace PC-based HMI for centralized information-monitoring.”

To accomplish this, Rockwell built the PanelView Plus 7 Performance model with larger screen options, more powerful processors, and additional connectivity options over the existing PanelView Plus 7 Standard model.

Prior to the Performance model, the largest screen available on a Rockwell PanelView product was the 15″ PanelView Plus launched back in 2003.

Now with the PanelView Plus 7 Performance model, customers will have a choice of 6 different display sizes topping out at 19″.

And unlike the PanelView Plus 7 Standard models which are limited to 1 programmable controller connection, 25 displays, and 200 alarms, the greater processing power in the Performance model removes these limitations.

The Performance model also adds a two port device level ring ready switch, where as up to this point the Standard model has only offered a single Ethernet port.

So what do you think? Ready for a 19″ PVPlus, or is that overkill for your applications?

  1. hello I was wondering if it would be possible to send a bar code to a panel view plus??so say we scan our part to the plc then send it to the hmi.

    • Good afternoon autosmurf,

      Sure can, your bar code reader will turn the bar code into a number either the PVPlus or PLC can read.

      What are you specifically looking to do?
