Customized SIMATIC products for the Automotive Industry

In the automotive industry, the continuous fault-free operation of production facilities is also of paramount importance. The requirements of industrial control enclosures in respect of impermeability to dust and water, as well as those in respect of the management of the internal heat balance are therefore very high. These are requirements for which our SIMATIC HMI IPC477C / IPC577C and IPC677C as operator PCs or our SIMATIC Flat Panel monitors as robust visual display devices are eminently suitable.
