How to Reset AB PanelView

By Aalhad Deshmukh

AB PanelView is a touchscreen panel manufactured by Allen Bradly. It works with a programmable logic controller (PLC) to provide the user with a touchscreen interface to control machines. The AB PanelView has a Windows CE operating system. Programmers can develop and load a touchscreen front panel software with multiple buttons and display messages into the AB PanelView. The AB PanelView has to be reset to bring it back to factory settings to start a new project.

  • Thin plastic probe

Step 1

Place the AB PanelView on a soft padded surface with the screen facing down towards the surface.
