Simatic HMI Pro is an all-round industrial interface solution that covers every aspect that one might encounter in the field, from reliability to throughput to ruggedness. One of the products offered by the Simatic line is the HMI Comfort Panel, designed to eliminate control cabinet style monitoring, making visualization & automation an entire level easier.
The Simatic HMI Comfort Panels are backed by traditional reliability, studded with high performance and functionality, as well as numerous integrated interfaces, thus providing a solid foundation for high-end applications, especially those that are visualization-intensive. Siemens has greatly improved the performance variables, and brought a number of additions to the panels. These include:
- Cohesive project planning through TIA Portal v14.
- Integration of safety function through extension units
- Wide array of operating elements such as buttons, emergency indicators, USB interface, etc. for extended functionality
- Simplified labelling by tag holder, insert plate and lens cap.
In addition to the new & improved IP65-protected Simatic HMI Comfort Panels, Siemens has also started offering improved panel PCs, designed for the industry, to cater for the rising demand of powerful applications. Featuring screen diagonals of 15-22 inches, the Simatic IPC477E has much to offer in terms of hardware performance:
- Intel Core i-porcessor
- 3x gigabit Ethernet
- 4x USB 3.0
- 3x COM interfaces
By offering extension units, Siemens has multiplied the possibilities of their HMI product line. Components such as installation adapter, keyboard tray IP65 rated keyboards, etc. can customize solutions as per the requirement. This convenience and ease-of-use is backed by simple installation & commissioning, that makes the Simatic HMI Comfort Panels all the more worthwhile.
