Configuration freedom

Applications remain elegantly slim with integrated control in the HMI panel. Add remote I/Os to fit your needs, and select between three major fieldbuses – EtherCAT, Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP.

Less risk of error with one system

Two separate PLC and HMI systems mean twice the risk of error. X2 control panel changes all that. Simply configure your system with WARP and you're done. It’s never been easier to create applications.

Robust aluminum housing

Robust aluminum housing with IP65, NEMA 4X/12 and UL Type 4X/12 front. Resistant to direct rain, snow or wash-downs, dirt, grime and dust.

Wide operating temperature

The wide -10°C to +60°C operating temperature range satisfies the demands of most industries.

EtherCAT as standard

X2 control HMI panels support I/O communication with super-fast EtherCAT as standard.

2 Ethernet ports as standard

X2 control HMI panels have two built-in Ethernet ports as standard for communication with other equipment.

PLC functionality integrated in an HMI panel?

Traditionally PLCs and HMI panels have been considered as being two separate systems. This has changed with newer types of HMI panels which combine the HMI and PLC functionality by integrating e.g. CODESYS control running on the same powerful processor in the operator panel. The processing capacity of multicore processors are capable of delivering both fast screen changes and program execution securing high-performance in demanding applications. A CODESYS control application in the display is supported by a fully integrated development system providing access to all five IEC 61131-3 programming languages offering versatility in PLC programming. IO signals for the PLC and HMI are connected via distributed IOs and provide a flexible and cost-effective solution.
