In this post, we will talk about our range of Panel PCs for industrial control. They are based on the industrial Raspberry Pi and work with GN/Linux (Raspbian/Ubuntu) which are installed in an SD card.
This kind of panel for industrial monitoring can work as a PLC because it has 10 I/O and different types of communication (RS-232, RS- 485, Ethernet and WiFi). Moreover, it has the benefit of a touchscreen where you can program the application you want and monitor the variables you need too. It is a versatile way to automate and monitor an installation because it is an Open Source software and works as a proper PC in which you can connect your mouse, keyboard, USB and have a µSD to expand the hard disk.
In complex systems, you can create a network between several TouchBerries, providing a supervision solution and control for production plants and real-time data.
After reading this post, you will be able to take the first steps with your device for industrial automation.
First step: connect a keyboard and a mouse to your Panel, using the USB ports, so you can work more comfortably. After that, you can connect to a WiFi network and having access to the internet.
The language of the keyboard is English by default. To configure it, you will have to enter in the General menu -->Preferences --> Mouse and Keyboard Settings --> Keyboard --> Keyboard Layout.
