B&R Automation: Switch It On and Get Started

January 18, 2021

The Power Panel C80 offers the highest performance for every industry

The new Power Panel C80 offers the combined advantages of a powerful controller and a modern operator terminal in a single HMI device. The C80 installation is compatible with B&R Automation Panels. Users thus have full flexibility when using the new panel and can scale their machines to optimize performance and costs.

With its low installation depth, the C80 multi-touch HMI is suitable for particularly compact machines where space in the control cabinet is limited. The hard disk and fanless operation also make it particularly low-maintenance.

Time-saving plug and play

The Power Panel C80 can be put into operation quickly and easily, and all necessary software packages are pre-installed. I/O modules, motion control axes and safety components can be connected directly to the panel. There’s no need for additional controllers. The user only has to switch on the Power Panel C80 and transfer the application.

Powerful and cost-effective

On the Intel Atom processor, B&R’s Automation Runtime real-time operating system runs parallel to an embedded Linux operating system for the HMI application. This is made possible by the hypervisor from B&R, which divides the processor’s resources between the two operating systems without allowing them to impact each other’s performance. In contrast to a solution with a controller and separate operating panel, this integrated solution requires less space in the control cabinet. Costs are further reduced by more efficient utilization of the available hardware resources.

Intuitive touch operation

The high-performance Power Panel C80 is ideal for running mapp View HMI applications. With the mapp View software package, B&R offers direct access to the wide world of web technology right from the engineering environment. The projected capacitive touch screen reacts precisely and reliably even when operated with thick leather gloves. Gestures such as zoom or swipe provide an intuitive user experience. The front of the panel has IP65 protection, making the Power Panel C80 ideal for use in harsh environments. This multi-touch panel is available with a clear or anti-glare glass surface in four different widescreen formats (7.0″, 10.1″, 12.1″ and 15.6″) and one 4:3 format (5.7″).

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
