From background images to text elements, analog style meters, touch screen navigation elements and even complex logic statements, PanelPilotACE Design software allows users to build multi-screen interfaces without needing to write a line of code.

PID Control: Use your display as a PID control unit. Set P, I and D coefficients, measure a process variable and use PanelPilotACE to correct to your desired set point, e.g. vary a fan speed to maintain a temperature.

Ethernet FTP for Logged Data: Don’t manually connect PanelPilotACE via USB to obtain logged data. Connect it to an FTP server via an Ethernet cable allowing quicker and more convenient data collection.

Multi-Channel Data Logging: You now have 10 logging channels, allowing you to log any input to the device that can be defined numerically. Record more temperatures at once, as well as voltage, current etc.

Trend Graphs: Display data on graphs as it is logged. If you use an alarm threshold as one of your data channels, Trend Graphs will let you monitor logged data against alarm levels.

CAN bus protocol: A CAN (Controller Area Network) bus is a message-based communications protocol, and has been added to the SGD 70-A PanelPilotACE color capacitive touch display.
