What do you do when your PanelView HMI is damaged or it just doesn’t quite do its job anymore?

The retrofitting of your older PLC interface is cost effective and seamless.
How can Qualitrol help you integrate new PanelView technology into your Allen-Bradley PLC?
Save Yourself Time and Eliminate Downtime
Qualitrol saves you time by retrofitting your Allen-Bradley PanelView HMI with a new interface. Retrofitting saves you the aggravation of having to try to fit your PanelView into somewhere it doesn’t belong.
Our PLC retrofits match the shape and size of your PanelView interface perfectly, which allows you to install your unit back into its original space. You’ll have a brand-new interface and best of all, you won’t have to rewrite your program. No time consumed by re-writing your program or starting from scratch, our retrofits successfully replace your old PanelView and you’ll be able to pick up where you left off – eliminating any manufacturing downtime.
Fully Updated Panel to Solve Problems
If you have holes or cracks in your panel, which happens after years of use with your Allen-Bradley PanelView or due to problems such as overheating, it’s time for an update. Qualitrol can retrofit your Allen-Bradley PanelView at a fraction of the cost of replacing your entire PLC.
We’ll retrofit your PanelView with a new LCD screen, which gives you more accessibility with brighter and more user-friendly colors. Plus, we can retouch the keypad, replace the touchscreen membrane, and retouch the bezel so your unit will look new and work better despite its years of use.
Common problems with Allen-Bradley PanelViews that can be solved by getting a retrofit with Qualitrol include:
- Overheating: The Allen-Bradley PanelView 550 contains a light bulb in the rear that generates a lot of heat. This overproduction of heat causes the display to malfunction and often, it will not work. It does this by melting fiber optic cables that carry the light to your screen in order for the screen to be properly viewed. This causes your screen to be improperly lit or not viewable at all. Getting a retrofit PanelView with Qualitrol can keep your interface cool and functioning properly, and you’ll have new LCD screen technology for your panel.
- Broken Allen-Bradley PanelViews: When replacing these PanelViews, you’ll need to reinstall your HMI application properly or it won’t work with your current system. Your program may have been designed to work with an older model and won’t easily work with the new PanelView. Don’t waste time trying to download, install, and verify this software on your older model. Qualitrol can do all this for you and ensure that everything works with no problems after the retrofit.
- Fragile and Cracked Equipment: Allen-Bradley PanelView 600 and 900 have fragile light bulbs and can be susceptible to cracked screens, overheating, and malfunctioning due to these problems. In addition to being cost efficient, our retrofits work and fit flawlessly into your system with the fully updated screen, and you’ll no longer have to worry about overheating or cracking with your screen.
