PanelPilotACE Display Capabilities Extended

Lascar’s PanelPilotACE is a unique software and hardware display platform ideal for rapid development of touchscreen machine interfaces and control monitoring displays – without writing code.

Free to download, PanelPilot Design Studio software allows users to build multi-screen interfaces for compatible displays without writing any code – from background images to text elements, analogue style meters, touch screen navigation, complex logic statements, serial communications, data logging, trend graphs and maths functionality.

PanelPilot S70-CAN, add on board for the SGD 70-A allowing CAN bus communication.

The inexpensive 4.3” SGD 43-A and 7” SGD 70-A compatible displays run projects created in PanelPilotACE Design Studio software.  Both available for under £300 (with large discounts available on volume purchase), both displays feature capacitive touch screens, four 16 bit bi-polar analogue inputs, eight digital input/output pins, two alarm outputs, four PWM outputs, RS232/485 comms, CAN bus (SGD 70-A only) and FTP transfer of logged data via wired Ethernet.

The innovative Design Studio software is constantly evolving with some exciting new features just launched.

Lascar’s PanelPilotACE family allows rapid project development.

PID Control
PID control functionality allows PanelPilotACE displays to be used as PID control units.  Set P, I and D coefficients, then measure a process variable and use PanelPilotACE to correct to your desired set point, e.g. vary a fan speed to maintain a temperature.

Ethernet FTP for Logged Data
Don’t connect PanelPilotACE to your computer via USB to obtain logged data – you can now connect it to an FTP server via an Ethernet cable.  This Ethernet FTP capability allows quicker and more convenient data collection, particularly useful when you are running time-sensitive applications.

Multi-Channel Data Logging
No longer restricted to just one data logging channel – you now have 10.  PanelPilotACE allows you to log any input to the device that can be defined numerically. Now record more temperatures at once, as well as other parameters including voltage and current.

Drag and drop software replaces traditional coding.

Trend Graphs
The Trend Graphs functionality has been upgraded to display the new multi-channel logging feature, enhancing PanelPilotACE’s capability as a monitoring device.  If you use an alarm threshold as one of your data channels, Trend Graphs will let you monitor logged data against alarm level.
