New Eaton High-Performance Operator Interface Improves Process and Equipment Reliability

Pittsburgh … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation is introducing the XV and XP Series, a new line of operator interfaces engineered for optimal connectivity. Designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), they provide customers with flexibility in design, communications and application. The XV and XP Series have a broad array of serial and Ethernet connectivity options and are rated for global applications in a slim, light-weight OEM design. With Eaton's new advanced operator interface solutions, customers can more easily create web-based applications for the manufacturing environment that enhance their ability to diagnose machine faults, prevent downtime, reduce maintenance costs and improve process effectiveness.

"Eaton provides OEMs with comprehensive solutions that help control equipment, reduce downtime and increase efficiency," said Amy M. Beaudry, product manager, Eaton. "The XV and XP Series of operator interfaces provide high-performance platforms for global applications that require extensive connectivity."

Each model comes equipped with Eaton's Visual DesignerTM software that is optimized for OEMs and designed for interoperability, simplicity and security. It is powerful, intuitive and allows for the quick design and implementation of graphical user interface (GUI) solutions. Its time saving, easy-to-use features help lower customers' installation costs. The elegant user interface helps make advanced features easier to implement, including: data archiving, recipe management, multi-language, Structured Query Language (SQL) database access and web serving.

In addition to basic monitor and control, Visual Designer software has a wide array of advanced features that help streamline the design of sophisticated applications. Simplified yet powerful security means that the same local user accounts and passwords for viewing and control also apply remotely. Additionally, Visual Designer software allows Eaton's XV and XP Series to communicate with a variety of networks, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), web clients and databases.

The new XV and XP Series are available in a variety of screen sizes, ranging from 3.5 to 15-inch and a blind node. All models include both serial and Ethernet ports. Other connectivity and memory options include Secure Digital (SD), CompactFlash, USB, and multiple Ethernet ports. Additionally, Eaton provides free technical support for both hardware and software.
