B&R Automation, part of ABB Group, has launched the ‘T80 operator terminal’ power panel. It is the latest addition to company’s T series of industrial power panels enabling web based HMI display and control.
What are web based HMI solutions?

The power panel has a single service page where IP address, DHCP server and screen saver could be configured. These settings can be copied to other T80 power panels using a flash drive.
The operating system is protected from any unwanted changes via permission / providing user login. Application data is stored in RAM memory during runtime.
