Design blank front KP8 appearance, for easy mounting of standard 22,5mm control elements, ideal for modular operating panels, also optimized for mounting in extention units for PRO devices
The Key Panels, PROFINET successors to the PROFIBUS DP-based Push Button Panels, are operator panels which are ready-to-run without any configuration effort at all.
Alternatives to individually wired long-stroke keys. They are designed for direct operator control of the machine.
Key Panels provide many basic functions for direct operator control and monitoring instead of machine operator control, a cost-effective, versatile and space-saving combination, and they reduce configuration and installation costs to a minimum. Furthermore, additional actuators and sensors can also be optionally connected directly on the back of the devices.
The Key Panels can be used directly in line and ring topologies thanks to an integrated switch and two RJ45 PN sockets.
