Beckhoff Automation introduced its CP2xxx and CP3xxx Control Panel and Panel PC series that feature multi-touch technology as well as a contemporary device design.

The widescreen panels come in various sizes and resolutions in addition to the classic display sizes in 4:3 format. The new widescreen displays are available in: 7-inch with a resolution of 800 x 480, 15.6-inch with 1366 x 768, 18.5-inch with 1366 x 768 and 24-inch with the full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.

The CP2xxx and CP3xxx use Projective Capacitive Touchscreen (PCT) technology. The high touch-point density enables accurate and reliable operation for industrial users. The front of the display is a glass pane with an anti-reflection coating; operation with work gloves (e.g. latex gloves) is also possible. Five-finger touch and automation solutions with 2-hand operation are equally possible. Familiar functions from the world of smartphones and touchpads, such as zooming, scrolling, object turning, flicks, etc. are now also usable for industrial applications.

The series is implemented with IP 65 protection at the front and IP 20 at the rear. The CP3xxx Control Panels for mounting arm installation feature all-round IP 65 protection. The CP29xx and CP39xx series use the well-known DVI/USB Extended Technology from Beckhoff and can be operated up to 50 m away from the Industrial PC. The CP22xx built-in devices are also available as Panel PCs with Intel Celeron Core i3, i5 or i7 processor.
