3 BEIJER ELECTRONICS COMPLETE HMI OFFER.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation BEIJER ELECTRONICS COMPLETE HMI OFFER. Operator panels EXTER – award winning design Standard and customized models / markets Certifications (DNV, UL etc.) H/PWS Standard models Fewer certifications EPC and IPC Flat panel monitors HMI software accessories Data Collector, Remote Access Viewer LCD Modules LCD’s “with intelligence” Customized development Operator panels Premium: EXTER The EXTER series has redefined both function and form of operator panels. This flexible, ergonomic series won the iF Product Design prize with the first five models in 2005, and again when the product line was extended in EXTER Pro+ models support PDF viewing, Internet Explorer, network cameras and more. Models adapted for specific market segments bring unique values to our customers. Operator panels Basic: Affordable H-series The panels in our H-Series offer a balanced set of options, letting users choose the level of functionality they need at a price they can afford. They provide a perfect solution for budget-conscious performance. EPC and Industrial PC Beijer Electronics’ flat panel monitors are designed for industrial PCs. Through the German subsidiary Systeme-Lauer, a range of embedded and industrial PCs are offered. OPC server: Time-saving integration Historically, the driver connection between hardware and software has been the most complicated part in system integration. Beijer Electronic’s OPC Server minimizes integration and maintenance time by eliminating the need to learn different proprietary protocols. With our OPC Server, all hardware and software components are integrated through a single standard interface. It can be used with plug-and-play software and hardware components from a wide variety of automation suppliers. SW accessories: Full control of process values The Beijer Electronics Data Collector is used in combination with an EXTER operator panel to automatically collect and store process values, recipes and alarm data from an industrial network. Once programmed as to which values and parameters to store, Data Collector runs in the background, eliminating the need for manual data reading or database input. All data is stored in a chosen database, for example SQL, Access or MSDE. The collected data can be viewed within the Data Collector software, which presents it in the form of graphs and tables. This makes it easy to get a complete overview of process values, and to see if they fall within acceptable limits. Information can also be viewed with any other software that can access the database. Communication with Data Collector is handled via Ethernet or PPP. This enables the collection and storage of local and remote data via network, modem or Internet. LCM: Customized crystal The Beijer Electronics range of LCD modules (LCMs) is developed and manufactured by Hitech Electronics. These monochrome liquid crystal displays are sold externally to OEM customers, and are also used in operator panels developed by Hitech Electronics. Our LCMs are often modified for customers and are produced in relatively short series. For some customers, the displays are mounted in customized front panels. © Beijer Electronics 2007

EXTER™ GIVES YOU CLEVER FUNCTIONALITY. Advanced, user-friendly driver concept Flexibility in operation Multiple languages, remote operation, s, file transfer…. Clear visual communication Windows standard fonts, dynamic objects…. All that you can imagine from an HMI - and more! Dual drivers with data exchange, I/O Poll Groups, Data Logger, Internal Variables, Recipes, Trends... Clever functionality Beijer Electronics was first to introduce web-enabled operator panels, and the new EXTER™ series does not stand back in this respect. The EXTER™ series offers a high level of functionality, including basic operation functions as well as advanced communication solutions. Advanced, user-friendly driver concept Truly easy communication comes from intelligent driver technology. Beijer Electronics offers a wide selection of drivers that are simple to configure. All drivers are included with the configuration tool, and it is easy to download new drivers and updates - free of charge - into the configuration software. Drivers are available for a wide selection of automation equipment from most manufacturers. The advanced dual drivers functionality enables connected controller systems to exchange data – independently of manufacturer or type of equipment, thanks to the ever-increasing selection of easy-to-configure drivers. This is intelligent product design. Flexibility in operation The ability to include multiple languages in one application is one of the features that add flexibility and user-friendliness to an application - and that can save the developer time and money. Each operator panel is fully web-enabled, enabling remote operation of both the operator panel as well as the controller system, for example for maintenance purposes, monitoring or remote operation. (Naturally, when applying this openness, it can be protected by security levels defined in the application). The feature and file transfers enable the operator panel to communicate for example alarms and data files. Clear, visual communication The ability to include standard Windows “true type” fonts and design the application with multiple colors or grayscales provide the tools for creating user-friendly clear communication. All that you can imagine...In summary, all the well-thought out and popular functionality from the CIMREX series is included, such as recipes and trends - in addition to new features, such as the Internal Variables, which enable the application to have a number of preset start-up signals, and Data Logger. © Beijer Electronics 2007

8 EXTER IS STATE OF THE ART HW AND SW.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation EXTER IS STATE OF THE ART HW AND SW. Reliable operating system Windows CE Windows fonts, up to 64k colors, communication port drivers, future possibilities Powerful processor Intel XScale PXA270 Safe file system Intel Persistent Storage Manager ensures that the file system is not damaged when power is turned off or fails State-of-the-art HW and SW The EXTER™ series features state-of-the-art hardware and software. In deciding which type of operating system to use for this new platform, Beijer Electronics has monitored the development, and evaluating, the operating system Windows CE, now CE.NET. This offers a stable and reliable platform - and it has proven its resilience in many industrial products. In addition, the new Intel XScale processor (PXA270), gives the EXTER™ operator panels a powerful processor that is suitable for running CE on, and that meets the demands from customers. This is a strong combination for the EXTER™ series. Beijer Electronics was among the first to integrate Intel’s processor PXA270 in commercial products. Beijer Electronics was a close partner in the development process of the processor. Using a Windows CE.NET operating system provides many advantages for the operator panel, for example: Possibility to include Windows “TrueType” fonts, a graphic handling with colors (64k) - and gradients in objects. Additionally, drivers are included that enable for example direct connection of third party peripherals in the USB ports, and the system even opens up development possibilities for future developments. Safe file system: Using the Intel’s XScale ARM architecture processor and Strata-Flash technology enables the EXTER™ series to offer a totally safe file system by using Intel’s Persistent Storage Manager. The PSM integrates both executable code and file storage functions into a single flash chip, giving incredibly fast access time and ensuring that system files and data are not corrupted even if power fails during file writing. © Beijer Electronics 2007

9 INFORMATION DESIGNER SOFTWARE.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation INFORMATION DESIGNER SOFTWARE. Intuitive and user-friendly configuration Helps you create logic, flexible and efficient HMI applications that provide the right information at the right time - to operators and to other systems Same configuration tool for both EXTER™ and CIMREX series, and accessories Information Designer The EXTER series operator panels are configured with the software Information Designer from Beijer Electronics. Information Designer makes it easy to create applications that are logic and user-friendly for the operator, and that acts as flexible and efficient interfaces between systems, machines and operators. Information Designer is based on the popular CIMREX PROG software tool, and provides all the same user-friendly, time saving features that users know from CIMREX PROG. New, clever functions are also offered and Information Designer is now also the configuration tool for the CIMREX series from Beijer Electronics. It also enables conversion of projects from CIMREX models to EXTER models. Example of user-friendliness in development and in operation: Developers can choose between six menu languages in Information Designer, and can set up several languages for the application, a powerful tool for creating user-friendly applications - or saving time in making your application work in many different countries. A few of the main points about Information Designer: Easy to get started Less than 10 minutes is all you need to get your first application running. A wide selection of ready-made objects and functions make it simple for you to create applications by just pointing and placing on the screen. No extra PLC programming is needed. The easy-to-follow user guide and targeted help files provide all the help you need, both for getting started quickly, and for more comprehensive in-depth explanations. Information Designer matches the needs of both new users and experienced users. Saves time That Information Designer is easy to get started with saves a lot of time, and the graphical user-interface which enables configuration with the exact same view as the one the operator will experience, is a helpful feature when visualizing how the application will work in real life. Another time-saving feature is the off-line simulator that enables the developer to instantly test the application – the easiest way to make sure that for example, all links and short-cuts are included. © Beijer Electronics 2007

EXTER™ STAINLESS DISPLAY. The streamlined construction, and the fact that the panel has neither foil nor labels on the front, means that there are less minute cracks and lines in the surfaces where bacteria and other pathogens might otherwise hide, so it’s much easier to keep clean. What’s more, the front of the EXTER T150-st is waterproof, making it easy to clean with high-power water jets without the risk of water leaking into the operator panel itself. The stringent regulations that apply throughout the Food & Beverage and Pharmaceuticals industries often require the use of powerful cleaning agents to satisfy the high standards of hygiene. Some acid-based cleaning agents can pose problems for other operator panels, with long term use leading to corrosion. The EXTER T150-st has an acid-resistant stainless steel construction, so it’s perfectly suited to these kinds of tough conditions. The EXTER T150-st fits perfectly into all locations that are compatible with the standard EXTER T150. Smooth, no indentation in which bacteria can hide, easy to keep clean Optimized for branches such as Food & Beverages and Pharmaceuticals Steel quality means it can be cleaned with acid Cut-out compatible with EXTER standard T150 © Beijer Electronics 2007

MESSAGE LIBRARY. Many possibilities to get the message across Text tables, e.g. to use for... Describing steps in a sequence Presenting error codes Message library With the message library function you can create text tables, where values between 0 and 65,535 are linked to texts. The message library function is for example used for presentation of each sequence step in sequence control. Another possible application is to present error codes. An analog signal generates error codes connected to texts in a text library. This function can also be used to give analog values specific values, depending on the selected texts. The message library is one of several text tables, each containing up to 512 text strings. Each text string can be 40 characters long. The function is activated under Functions/Message library. © Beijer Electronics 2007

MULTIPLE LANGUAGES. Adapts to international applications Allow the operator to switch between different languages Easy to develop projects for use in other countries Create one language Translate in up to 9 more languages Easy handling of translated text All text messages in the project can be exported to i.e. Excel to simplify the creation of the messages in the other languages and then imported back into the project Import/upload system texts for translation Multiple Languages Increase the user-friendliness of your application by enabling the operator to select his language of choice. It will save development time for applications that will be implemented in different countries: You only need to develop one project. All texts in the project are stored in a library and can be exported to Excel, for example, to simplify the translation of the file to other languages, and the file is easily imported back into the project. A different font can be chosen for each language if required. Any ”Windows True Type” font can be selected for use in the EXTER operator panels, which only supports Unicode based character sets. Unicode is a global standard for character encoding where 16-bit values are used to represent the characters from many of the world’s languages. Unicode has built-in support in Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 2000. © Beijer Electronics 2007

Appearance Option for gradient colors and styles Fonts Choose any Windows TrueType font Styles (italic, underline, bold) Shadow Dynamics Property (e.g. change font or color, blink, hide…) Size, Move, Event Object preferences and dynamics All objects have there own preferences e.g. a text object. By selecting a certain appearance, font or dynamic property, it is possible to for example, direct the operator’s attention to certain events. Appearance The object itself, or the background in a text object, for example, can have one color - or nine different gradient options with two colors; choose any color from the Windows palette! Fonts All Windows TrueType fonts are supported by the operator panel, the font is downloaded to the operator panel with the project file. The fonts can appear in italic, underlined or bold and with shadow as well. Dynamics Its also possible to select “dynamics” for all objects, e.g. to appear or blink, be resized, moved and many other options. Adjustable text Supports adjustment with Left/Center/Right for static and dynamic texts. Affects following objects: static text, multiple choice, message, jump and ASCII. This improvement feature will make it easier to create multiple language projects as the text is left-aligned by default. Fixed and resizable Fixed font size is default for all objects. Affects if you are using a Multilanguage project and it contains text objects: With fixed font size, the font will stay the same independent of word length, and the object size will adjust to the longest word. Static text object The static text object will now support background color, alignment and border style, which is common for other objects. © Beijer Electronics 2007

RECIPE MANAGEMENT. Change settings quickly and easily Save Analog and Digital signal values to the operator panel memory with a simple operation Recipe management enables the operator to quickly and easily change the parameter settings when switching from one product to another in the production Recipes can be created directly in the operator panel or on a PC and transferred e.g. via a network Recipe management The Recipe management function enables all the dynamic data in one or more blocks, i.e. the signals and their values, to be saved to a file in the operator panel. The operator can then download the files to the controller, which will start working with the new values. The operator can easily change the parameters, and it is possible to reuse large sets of parameters. The user can create recipe libraries consisting of files containing different sets of parameters. This function improves the efficiency of time-critical productions where the exchange of similar products must be done quickly, such as in the manufacturing of units in different colors. Recipe files can be created from the operator panel, the controller, or from a PC. From the PC the recipe files are down- and uploaded to the panel with the utility software or any FTP client. Recipe files can also be sent from the operator panel as attachments with the function. © Beijer Electronics 2007

REAL-TIME CLOCK AND TIME CHANNELS. Real-time clock Real-time clock with automatic daylight saving and possible to configure for any country in the world Time channels For initiating actions in relation to the real-time clock. This could be useful for controlling e.g. fans, pumps, ovens etc. over time Real-time clock The operator panels have a real-time clock with automatic daylight saving. The daylight saving can be configured to follow European or American standard settings and it is also possible to freely configure it for any country in the world. To ensure correct time stamp in both the PLC and the operator terminal, it is possible to synchronize the clock in the PLC with the clock in the operator panel. The date and the time format can be selected. Time channels Time channels is a function for setting and resetting digital devices in relation to the real-time clock. This is used to control for example fans, pumps, ovens etc. The time channels are configured for a 7-days period. © Beijer Electronics 2007

56 FUNCTIONS & TOUCH KEYS – EASY NAVIGATION AND CONTROL.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation FUNCTIONS & TOUCH KEYS – EASY NAVIGATION AND CONTROL. Use function and touch keys to Control and change values in the process Switch blocks Start a macro Load recipe, log in, log out… Function and Touch keys A function key can be configured to control and change the values of devices in the PLC. The function key can also be assigned to switch block, start a Macro or other functions like load recipe, login and log out. There are two ways of defining function keys; globally and locally. Global function keys are defined and used in the complete application, i.e. they are valid in all blocks. Local function keys are defined and used in one block. A global definition can always be accessed in when the operator panel is running, provided that the current block does not have any local definitions for that function key. Local definitions have higher priority than global definitions. Note: It is only possible to activate two signals connected to function keys at the same time. This means that if more than two function keys are pressed at the same time, only the first two will be activated. Touch keys The Touch Key object is a pressure-sensitive surface with functions similar to those for a function key. It can be used to change images and control memory cells, etc. Up to five rows of text can be used together with a symbol when creating touch keys. © Beijer Electronics 2007

Up to eight levels can be used to give different operators different authorizations. Blocks, function/touch keys and maneuverable objects can be allocated security levels. Each security level is associated to a password. To access the different levels the user must login with a password for the relevant security level, or higher. Logout is either done via a key on the panel, on a signal from the PLC or on a time-out. © Beijer Electronics 2007

58 CONTROLLER: DUAL DRIVERS AND DATA EXCHANGE.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation CONTROLLER: DUAL DRIVERS AND DATA EXCHANGE. Communicate with two systems - and exchange data between them Two different drivers in the operator panel Allows communication with two different makes of controller systems simultaneously Exchange data through the operator panel The operator panel can act as a gateway, to let the controller systems exchange data through the panel without interruption of the operator panel’s normal operation Dual drivers with data exchange “Dual drivers” means that the operator terminal can handle two different drivers in one project application. This enables that: Two controller systems can be simultaneously connected to the operator panel. One project application can mix devices from two different controllers – or other devices. Controller systems can exchange data through the operator panel, independently of the project application. For example, a controller connected serially to the operator panel can exchange data with a controller elsewhere in a network that the operator panel is part of. The operator panel thus becomes a gateway for the communication. The controller systems can be from different manufacturers, and can even be different kinds of automation equipment, such as a servo or a PLC.. Drivers exist for all major automation equipment brands, and are downloadable free of charge in the configuration software, or here on the web site. © Beijer Electronics 2007

59 CONTROLLER: INTERNAL VARIABLES.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation CONTROLLER: INTERNAL VARIABLES. Additional information holders that does not effect the connected controller Save words and bit devices Save critical data in non-volatile variables Internal variables as data register Internal user-defined variables provide the possibility to save data temporarily in the operator panel, allowing, e.g. a package of data to transferred to the PLC at once instead of sending each value alone. If the PLC does not have a data register, the operator panel’s internal variables can be used instead. Two types of internal variables exist: Non-volatile internal user-defined variables are saved in the flash memory, when a value is changed, to be read at the next start-up. Practical for saving critical data. Volatile internal variables are not saved. © Beijer Electronics 2007

60 CONTROLLER: I/O POLL INTERVAL GROUPS.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation CONTROLLER: I/O POLL INTERVAL GROUPS. Set individual poll intervals for a group of signals Let the panel read the signal status when necessary Improve efficiency in time critical signals which must be read as fast as possible. Does not affect the writing I/O Poll Interval Groups The I/O poll interval groups are used to set individual poll intervals for a group of signals, for example to improve efficiency in overview blocks that contain many signals, and still keep a short update interval in detail blocks. The intervals can be set between ms, and three groups for each controller can be specified. If no I/O poll interval group is specified for the signal it will be polled instantaneously. © Beijer Electronics 2007

61 CONTROLLER: ACCESS TO THE CONTROLLER.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation CONTROLLER: ACCESS TO THE CONTROLLER. Access the controller from a PC with Transparent and Pass through modes Communication through the operator panel between a PC and the connected controller system, for example to program the controller system This is a great advantage at commissioning as it makes it possible to access both the operator panel and the controller system with one connection only Communication with the controller system The connected controller system can be accessed through the operator panel by another device, such as a PC. Access to the controller is possible via Ethernet or serially, or for example, via Ethernet to the operator panel and serially between the panel and the controller system. You can access the operator panel and the controller with one connection only. Pass through mode Pass through mode enables a PC to access the controller through the operator panel, for example to program the controller with the controller’s programming tool. This saves time when performing updating and trouble-shooting tasks. Transparent mode Transparent mode also provides access to the controller in a timesaving manner, but – unlike Pass through mode – Transparent mode communication occurs in parallel communication with the operator panel. This means that the operator panel continues to operate normally, even when a connection is made to the controller with the controller’s programming tool (only available for some drivers). Other companies may use the expression “transparent mode” for communication that is not parallel as explained here.The Pass through mode enables communication through the operator panel between a PC and the connected controller system, for example to program the controller system. © Beijer Electronics 2007

62 CONTROLLER: NO PROTOCOL MODE.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation CONTROLLER: NO PROTOCOL MODE. Access the controller with another serial device Connection through the operator panel for entering data directly into the controller, e.g. a barcode reader This saves the expense of an ASCII card for communication with the bar code reader! No protocol mode No protocol mode enables another serial device to access the controller through the operator panel. This means that a barcode reader, for example, can be connected to the controller through a serial port on the operator panel, entering data directly into the controller. The operator panel serves as a gateway, and thus saves the expense of for example an ASCII card for the communication with a bar code reader. © Beijer Electronics 2007

63 NETWORK FUNCTIONALITY.
PPTEN005A_EXTER Presentation NETWORK FUNCTIONALITY. Communicate in a network using Ethernet (BDTP) This is another example to exchange data between different controller systems located in the network With Information Designer you have full access to all the panels in the network Network functionality The operator panels can communicate in a TCP/IP (Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) network. The operator panels can be connected in a network in many different ways, through Ethernet or serially. The operator panel’s built-in Ethernet port can be used for TCP/IP connections. Connections are made according to Ethernet standards. The operator panel network is a client/server network. An operator panel can be both a client and server at the same time, in order to both supply data and access data from other operator panels. A maximum of 20 different clients can access data from the same server. A client can access data from up to 16 different servers. © Beijer Electronics 2007

Remotely control your operator panel via a browser Web functions are included in the operator panels Monitor and set data in the controller Transfer alarm messages, recipes and data files Send Built-in web and functionality The built-in web functionality; web server (handles html-files (web pages)), SMTP client ( client) and FTP server (file transfer server), is useful in many applications: For example to enable remote access to the controller system, to send messages or files to a PC in the network, to exchange data between two controller systems located in the network. The operator panels can be connected either serially or via Ethernet. It is possible to: Access the controller data via standard web browser from a PC: A web page loaded into the operator panels can be used for reading and writing controller data, for example to use for remote monitoring of a selection of signals. The web pages are accessed independently of the operator panel's regular operation. Send messages with a trend, recipe or alarm file attached, to stay updated with the latest production data or get alerted in case of alarms. Upload and download files such as recipes, and upload alarms and trends from the operator panel, for example over a network and via modem connection. It is possible to use standardized Internet tools, such as a web browser, an server and an FTP client, with the operator panel. A web page can be created in the PC and downloaded to the operator panel. The web page can contain real-time data from the controller or the operator panel. The panel can also send for special events such as alarm and status reports.
