Temperature range of -20…+60 °C

The new control panels with 7”, 10.4” and 15” screens provide comprehensive HMI functions for a wide range of applications. The bright, rugged and user-friendly touch screens display information clearly and allow to show media in high resolution. Robust aluminum front frames ensure IP66 protection. The all black front foil is perfectly suited for multiple applications either in landscape or portrait format.

CP600 2nd generation control panels ensure reliable operation in a wide environmental temperature range of -20…+60 °C. Two Ethernet interfaces support up to two networks with different physical layers (PHY). Thanks to the OPC UA server and client protocol, the CP600 2nd generation is well prepared for TSN connectivity. A serial port simplifies integration of products without network interfaces. USB ports and SD cards facilitate backups and system updates.

Compatible with ABB AC500 PLC

Like the other control panels of the CP600 platform, the CP600 2nd generation control panels are fully compatible with ABB’s AC500 and AC500-eCo PLCs, display information clearly and ensure reliable operation including all usual HMI functions such as alarm management, schedulers, recipes, trends, data acquisition, gateway functions or user management. The integrated chromium browser can be used for AC500 V3 web visualization.

Multiple possibilities through Panel Builder 600 programming tool

The CP600 2nd generation can be configured and programmed with Panel Builder 600, which allows the easy creation of graphical HMI pages. The powerful programming tool offers numerous configuration options, which can be complemented by JavaScript for the easy design of tailor-made user interfaces. It provides libraries of ready-to-use vector graphics and a rich set of widgets so that applications can be designed efficiently. 

This tool features an HMI simulator for efficient set up either offline or online. HTML5 pages enable easy remote access to HMI applications via smartphones or other mobile devices. The new HMIs can also work as edge devices or gateways to different cloud systems.


Furthermore, Panel Builder 600’s integration in the Automation Builder allows easy connection of PLC and HMI programming.

Easy replacement of previous devices

These new control panels feature the same front dimensions, cutouts, screen resolutions and interfaces as the former CP600 panels. With the 2nd generation of the standard CP600 HMIs ABB provides an up to date solution meeting customers’ requirements. With state-of-the-art hardware prepared for new communication standards the CP600 2nd generation HMIs have the ability to boost performance significantly.
