Siemens Industry Automation Division is introducing a series of rugged Simatic HMIs with all-round protection to IP65. Featuring a slim and elegant industrial design, the HMIs are designed for mounting on a support bracket or foot.
The new units available in three versions: Simatic Flat Panel Monitor Pro is a rugged industrial display monitor that can be installed at a distance of up to 30m away from the PC; Simatic Thin Client Pro is suitable as a second workstation for terminal and web-client applications; Simatic Multi Panel 377 Pro is a high-performance device that can be expanded when necessary. This last model is intended for use with the Simatic WinAC MP 2007 control software.
All the new HMIs have all-round protection and a high-brightness 15-inch touch display. Fitted with a flexible interface, they can be mounted on different support brackets or supporting feet. They can be used independently of control cabinets or machines and therefore enable ergonomic operator control even in difficult places. The devices can be connected to the support bracket or floor-mounted column from above or below as desired. A feature of the new HMIs is their low weight, which makes them easy to install. In addition, the rear can be removed in order to install new cables or replace a memory card, for example. This makes the new devices especially easy to maintain, even after they have been installed.
