New range of web operator panels with Level 4 ESD protectionSuitable for use in machine manufacturing industries such as semi-conductor manufacture, Advantech is launching a new range of web operator panels. These newly designed models, with flat panel IP66-certified aluminium edging, include the Intel Cortex-A8 processor which is not only faster but also consumes the minimum amount of power and also supports RS-232/422/485/ Ethernet and CANopen protocols to ensure that they will connect to your existing network. The new WebOP-3070T/3100T/3120T have dual Level 4 Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) protection and fully meet IEC-61000 requirements. This level of protection makes them well suited for work in semi-conductor factories where ESD is a major concern.

To protect the models from sudden spikes in the electricity supply, the WebOP-3070T/3100T/3120T is equipped with power and terminal I/O port isolation protection so that in the event of power surges the panel’s components will not be affected. This level of protection not only prevents immediate damage to the devices but also increases the life of the products.

In the event of power failure to the WebOPs, they are protected against immediate data loss by the inclusion of 128KB FRAM (Ferroelectric RAM) which does not require a battery to operate. Storage memory is 512MB SLC flash memory, which provides faster access times and 100,000 read-write cycles making it suitable for heavy use industrial applications that also require lower power consumption.

To further enhance these models’ specifications they have been designed to work in temperatures as low as -20degC and as high as 60degC, so they will continue to work in the harshest of environments.

With their powerful features, the WebOP-3070T/3100T/3120T operator panels can be used in restricted environments such as automated parking, bottling plants, semi-conductor manufacturing, petrochemical plants and many more.

The WebOP-3070T, 3100T and 3120T support the user-friendly Panel Express HMI runtime software, with which users can easily create operational interface projects that support more than 400 integrated communications protocols for industry controllers, such as PLC, temperature controller, motion controllers and many more.

Three sizes (7”, 10.1” and 12.1”) of WebOP are all available now. To find out more about the new range of web operator panels, go to
