MILWAUKEE — With its latest product release Monday, Rockwell Automation aims to reduce boot-up time and increase installation flexibility with the new space-saving Allen-Bradley PanelView 800 family of graphic terminals.

“The PanelView 800 family of terminals builds on the Rockwell Automation Connected Components Workbench software’s value of giving machine builders simplified engineering, easy configuration, faster installation and reduced start-up time,” said Chee Wah Lee, product manager for Rockwell Automation, in a statement. “This family of graphic terminals is ideally suited for meeting control and visualization requirements in a wide range of simple, standalone applications, such as pump stations, packaging machines, labelers and stretch-wrap machines.”

The terminals, available in 4-inch, 7-inch and 10-inch display sizes, feature an 800 MHz CPU processor, up to 256 MB of flash, and dynamic memory to reduce boot-up time, making it two times faster than the previous PanelView Component terminal, according to the announcement. The terminals also offer improved touch-screen responsiveness and can be configured in portrait and standard landscape mode for greater installation flexibility.

Milwaukee-based Rockwell Automation Inc. is the world’s largest company dedicated to industrial automation and information. It employs about 22,500 people serving customers in more than 80 countries.
