Welcome to part one of my nine part series detailing my picks for the top new PLC and HMI products shown at Rockwell’s Automation Fair 2017.

Note: While this series covers the new products I’m most interested in, you’ll find all the new products listed in Rockwell’s guide HERE.

The New PanelView 5310:

According to Rockwell’s sales literature, this new addition to the PanelView 5000 family became available for sale this week.

Touted as providing the same seamless integration as the PanelView 5500 series HMI, this line is targeted at smaller “Touch Only” machine builder applications in the 6”, 7”, 9” and 12” screen size.

And as with the PanelView 5500 series, the 5310 series is programmed with Studio 5000’s View Designer design environment which Rockwell states offers seamless integration with Studio 5000 Logix Designer and Rockwell’s Logix series of PACs.

Will you consider the above product, or does it not have a place in your facility?
