Siemens Industry’s Sinumerik Blackline OP 015 Black and OP 019 Black operator panels are designed for the Sinumerik 840D sl CNC system and offer new options for machine operation. The inductive sensor technology enables rapid interaction with the graphical user interface even when the operator is wearing gloves; consequently, it helps to prevent incorrect entries.

The OP 015 Black features an alphanumeric keypad on the right that can be operated via touch control. This feature means that the 15" display is not restricted by the superimposed keypad during data entry, which ensures clear and efficient operation. The 19" display of the OP 019 Black can show all the entries made in widescreen format at a glance. Both Blackline panels have an integrated glass panel on the front side and are designed with IP66 (OP 015) and IP65 (OP 019) degrees of protection. They are resistant to liquids and dust and can be operated even under harsh industrial conditions. An integrated key lock helps safeguard against operating errors.

The operator panel can provide a basic machine display, with three or four channels showing as many as 13 axes. The Sinumerik Blackline panels also feature durable LED background lighting, providing 40 percent energy savings compared to conventional neon lamps.

In combination with the Sinumerik 840D sl control, the Blackline panels can be used as an operating and programming station for aerospace composite machining, shopfloor (job shop) manufacturing, power generation and medical part manufacturing, in addition to tool- and moldmaking and rotary indexing machines.
