CHICAGO— Siemens OP 019 is a new CNC operator panel with advanced technology, enabling seamless design integration to the Sinumerik Operate graphical user interface and Sinumerik 840D sl CNC for use on high-end milling, turning, grinding, laser-cutting and other machine tools.
With the benefit of modern touchscreen operation, this new Sinumerik operator panel OP 019, now extended to include the new Power Control Unit (PCU) 50.5, allows high-speed key actuation at the large 19-inch glass front, which conforms to the IP66 protection rating. Another new feature of the OP 019 design is the wide LEDs, which allow the operator to clearly visualize every key actuation, no matter what the angle of vision plus an integrated key lock that helps safeguard against operating errors. The new operator panel is able to provide a basic machine display with three or four channels showing up to 13 axes. An operator gets the best overview with maximum detail on digitized drawings, owing to the 19-inch display with 1280 x 1024 pixel resolution.
The result of an advanced capacitive sensory system, glass contact buttons located on the perimeter of the display panel allow easy and reliable functionality, even when the operator is wearing gloves. With a compact yet powerful design, the OP 019 operator panel has a height of just 15.75 inches. Parallel display of dual-channel or axis machine data is provided, as well.
OP 019 panels are designed to quickly and easily replace existing Sinumerik display panels
in the field.
