As desired: customer-specific features and designs
Besides the high scalability of the Beckhoff Industrial PC portfolio and the ability to configure standard Industrial PCs individually, Beckhoff Industrial PCs, Panel PCs and especially Control Panels can be designed and built for customer-specific requirements.
The spectrum in the Panel area ranges from visual adaptations and logos in the customer's corporate design to individual equipment with special buttons, such as emergency stop buttons, scanners or RFID readers, right through to fully customized housing designs. In addition to the design, the functionality of the Control Panels is a key factor: As the central control element, the Panels must ensure perfect operation of the machine or system.
The high availability and reliability of Beckhoff Panel PCs and Control Panels in operation is based on meticulous, in-house development of electronic components, touch screens and housings and integration of displays. The devices can be operated in stand-alone mode, as DVI/USB Extended Control Panels or via CP-Link 4.
The following services are offered, among others:
- cost-effective implementation of company logos
- customized keyboard extensions according to customer specifications
- realization of customer-specific mounting arm adapter plates and mounting arm systems for integrating different mounting arm systems
- realization of complex operating terminals with fieldbus connections ( or others)
- modification of the mechanical/electrical connection of the devices according to the local situation
- development and realization of the design jointly with the customer
- only available as single-touch Panel: complete revision of the color scheme of the front membrane based on the corporate design of the company
Fully customized Industrial PCs
In the area of customer-specific Industrial PCs, Beckhoff relies on the comprehensive know-how from its own development and production of motherboards and electronics. In close contact with the customer, the latter's requirements are noted and compared with the Beckhoff portfolio. Possible additional peripheral boards are tested and planned in the same way as special housing adaptations and other new developments. Analogous to the customer-specific adaptations to Control Panel displays, Beckhoff can create an Industrial PC that is perfectly tailored to the customer and their application.
