SHAKOPEE, Minn. -- May 22, 2012 -- Pro Control, a division of Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI), today announced that the company's highly anticipated ProPanel app for the iPad(R), iPhone(R), and iPod Touch(R) is available now. For end users, the ProPanel app features, such as two-way feedback, provide convenient, powerful control over any Pro Control system with a ProLink.z control processor. For dealers, the app simplifies setup with an auto-programming feature, while still allowing for the easy creation of a completely customized user interface via Pro Control Studio(R) software.


In a sea of control apps, ProPanel enhances the control experience for end users with unique features such as full two-way feedback including cover art, weather graphics, and dynamic image lists, in addition to high-resolution graphics for the newest generation of iPad. Redefining ease of use, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by rotating the Apple(R) device, and requires no additional programming. ProPanel supports connection locally via Wi-Fi(TM) and offers remote access via auto-switching Wi-Fi and 3G wireless -- providing users with the convenience of control and monitoring from virtually anywhere in the world.

For dealers, the ProPanel app's auto programming feature provides exceptionally fast and simple setup. Dealers can completely customize the graphical user interface (GUI) to provide their customers with a consistent user experience across all Pro24.z controllers in their systems, including their Apple devices, as well as offer a unique interface designed to set their devices apart. For simple interface updating either locally or remotely, all graphics are stored conveniently on the ProLink.z processor and the Apple device.

"We are excited to announce the availability of our ProPanel app, which offers unmatched control at an exceptional value," said Mike Everett, general manager for Pro Control. "Every detail of the ProPanel -- from high-resolution graphics to its auto programming feature is designed to provide dealers with quick, effortless programming, while providing an intuitive and visually stunning experience for their customers."

The ProPanel app is available now for download from the Apple iTunes(R) App Store(SM). Users will need to purchase licenses from their distributor or online from within the Pro Control Studio software to enable communication with their Pro Control system.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
