PanelView 5510 terminals now support up to 500 screens, display video and
other content following updates to Studio 5000 View Designer software
Machine builders can now create richer, more advanced human-machine interface
(HMI) applications on the
PanelView 5510 operator terminals
from Rockwell Automation.
New versions of the
Studio 5000 View Designer software
and PanelView firmware expand the amount and types of information that can be
provided on PanelView 5510 terminals. Key enhancements include:
A new web-browser functionality allows the PanelView 5510
operator terminals to support a wider range of content. For example, they can
now display videos to show operators how to perform certain production tasks.
They can show IP camera feeds to give operators visibility into locations like
remote or dangerous areas of a facility. And they can display content like
hyperlinked help files and online scheduling systems.
Up to 500 screens can now be supported on the PanelView 5510
operator terminals. This can help machine builders create a wide range of
screens for setup and operation activities for more complex applications.
Users will also see design time and runtime performance improvements, like the
ability to switch between screens up to two times faster.
Automatic diagnostics are now available just by connecting
any PanelView 5000 terminal to a Rockwell Automation Logix controller (version
33 or later). Diagnostic information is provided automatically, without any
programming required. This can help machine builders provide self-monitoring
machines that can alert users of control system issues when they occur.
