Customization as standard? It sounds like a contradiction in terms, but that’s what ROLEC’s multiPANEL and profiPANEL ranges both offer. You can specify each model in any size you like – up to 31.5" x 31.5". And all as standard.

That’s because both ranges employ a profile-based construction method that makes bespoke sizes very easy to manufacture. So easy in fact, that customisation is the starting point – not an afterthought once the finished standard housing has been completed.

But if both multiPANEL and profiPANEL offer this huge level as choice from square one, which range should you specify for your HMI electronics? At headline level, the choice seems simple because the two models are destined for very different markets:

  • multiPANEL is an elegant premium panel enclosure for the very smartest of factories. It is best suited to small-volume applications requiring advanced functionality and cutting-edge designer aesthetics.
  • profiPANEL is a more cost-effective but highly versatile and very practical alternative to multiPANEL. It is aimed at higher-volume applications, especially machine building.

However, as you’ve probably guessed, there’s more to it than that: profiPANEL is no poor relation. Quite the contrary – in some areas of specification, profiPANEL offers greater choice than its sleek multiPANEL counterpart.

Think of it as a race between a beautiful sports car and a powerful muscle car. At first glance, the two may seem somewhat different. But they’re both the result of great design, they both deliver epic performance…and each can handle the challenge posed by the other.

It’s time to look at these worthy rivals in more detail…
