The new Simatic Mobile Panel 277 from the Siemens Industry Automation Division features a 10.4inch touch screen with a high resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. This makes it possible to show images of the complex processes encountered in large-scale plants.
Coming from the 270-product family, the device is sealed to IP65 and is equipped with a touch screen, a stop button and an enabling button in the standard version. A USB interface accessible from the outside means that project transfers and backup of recipe data can be carried out very quickly. A touch pen for precise control is provided in a stable holder on the rear of the device.
The new mobile panel is configured by means of the Simatic WinCC flexible 2008 engineering software. All additional components such as connection boxes or cables are the same as those of the mobile panel that is already available. Depending on requirements, the user can therefore combine different Simatic mobile panels for use in a particular plant.
