Last week Rockwell released the first new models in it’s PanelView Plus 7 Standard family of HMI’s.

While not all the PanelView Plus 7 models are available at launch, the documentation shows the standard family will include the following models:

The PanelView Plus 7 Standard now also sports a new look. The change from black to gray makes them look less like a repurposed PanelView 5000, and more like a classic PanelView Plus. The specifications of these new units are listed below:

    • RAM: 512 MB
    • Internal: 512 MB

    • Ratings: NEMA 12, 13, 4X, IP54, IP66
    • USB: 1 USB-A and 1 USB-B:
    • NET: 1 x RJ45 10/100 MB
    • Power: 18-30V DC
    • Support Support: FTViewME 7.0 8.0 or later

Along with released of this new hardware, Rockwell has also made the following documentation on the PanelView Plus 7 available on their website:

As the name implies, this PDF contains cutout dimensions for the PanelView Plus 7 Standard models.

This document, also called “packaging contents,” is most likely what ships with the unit. It includes notices and warnings, as well as cutout, installation, and wiring information.

True to its name, these Installation Instructions describe how to install the PVPlus 7 using its mounting levels.

This is a four page color brochure for the PVPlus 7, including product specifications as well as features and benefits.

This publication contains detailed technical information on the PVPlus 7 Standard models.  This includes environmental specifications as well as product certifications.

This user manual contains much of the same information as the Technical Data publication. But, it also includes the detailed information on the “configuration mode” menu and terminal settings. It also includes information about using cables, memory cards, setting up a printer, and upgrading the terminal’s firmware.

Well that’s everything we know so far about the PanelView Plus 7 Standard models. As we learn more in the coming weeks and months, we’ll keep you posted.

And if you’re one of the lucky few who gets to use one of these units in the near future, we’d love to hear what you think!

Until next time, Peace ✌️

  1. Thanks for the post Sean. I had not seen anything official yet on the AB site.

    I see that the brochure has conflicting information in there, stating both versions 8.0 (page 3) and 7.0 (page 4).

    The new PanelView Plus terminal is supported in FTView ME 8.0 and newer (not 7.0).
    FTView ME 8.0 has the new PVP terminals listed as a device for download and screen resolution.

    You can still build a version 7.0 project and run it on the new PVP. But, FTView ME 7.0 does not show the new PVP terminals as a device (project settings). You would have to set “custom resolution” as per the specs you posted.

    • Arlen,

      Thank you very much for your comment, the updated info, and all your help over the years! I’ll update the above article accordingly.

      You know, I was actually wondering aloud about that Monday with one of my colleagues – really can’t wait to get my hands on one of these new units,

      Thanks again as always,

  2. New information from Automation Fair 2014:

    The PanelView Plus 7 Standard should begin shipping again in January 2015, and the literature should return to the Lit Library by early December, per a discussion with the product manager at Automation Fair.

    I hope to post a new article with more info and pictures from the show in the coming weeks,
