Flexible outdoor application through extremely robust design

The new SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels TP700 and TP1500 offer the same convenience as the familiar standard comfort devices in combination with extreme equipment properties for flexible outdoor application:

  • Reliable operation in a wide temperature range from -30 °C to +60 °C, for example in refrigerated warehouses or in desert regions

  • High vibration and shock resistance, for example for use in vehicles or in the stamping machine and press sector

  • Panel front in IP66 for high degree of protection against dust and water penetration, for example for use in the mining industry or on ships

  • High UV resistance for long-term availability of function and optics, for example when used in mountain regions or close to the equator

  • Bonded display (as tough as laminated safety glass) for maximum protection against air humidity (90%), condensation and thermal stresses, for example for use in tropical zones

Safe operation and monitoring in extreme light conditions

Light conditions such as the change between day and night or bright sunlight can crucially affect safety when operating machines or monitoring processes in outdoor areas. With the new Comfort Outdoor Panels you can see what is currently running or being operated at all times, even in extreme light conditions. We’ve made this possible by endowing the front of the panel and the display with some outstanding properties:

  • Daylight readable display with automatic or manual dimming, for the right contrast and perfect vision

  • Dazzle-free display with no reflections and viewing angle up to 170° from all directions, for fatigue-free operation and monitoring

  • High-resolution widescreen display (16:9) with 16 million colors for pin-sharp visualization of complex operating screens and graphs

Application in any industry thanks to comprehensive certifications

SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels can be used with virtually no restriction in a wide range of different industrial sectors. Comprehensive certifications (in preparation), for example IEC-EX protection and marine, offer you flexible options for application in extreme areas:

  • Oil and gas production, transport and processing, biogas systems

  • Marine, shipbuilding, port facilities and cranes

  • Wind farms and solar parks, hydropower plants and sewage treatment plants

  • Deep-shaft and surface mining, quarries, gravel and sand pits

  • Cable railways, ice rinks and refrigerated warehouses

  • Vehicles and special machines in outdoor applications

Extremely efficient engineering in the TIA Portal

SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels have special properties that make them extremely flexible and safe in use. To enable you to implement your visualization solution with absolute minimal expenditure, we offer the engineering tool WinCC (TIA Portal) – to make things faster and easier than ever before!

  • Extremely simple transfer of existing HMI projects with Comfort Panels to SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels, thanks partly to the same aspect ratio and same resolution of the display – and problem-free generation change.

  • Operating screens are easily configured both for stationary as well as mobile applications or transferred from the library with the push of a button. For configuration, users simply need to select the new outdoor panel.

  • The configuration can be expanded with specific functions for extreme applications, for example connecting webcams or mobile phones.

  • A style editor enables you to integrate your corporate design really easily in the control units for central management – within seconds!

  • Multiple inputs are avoided since process variables are created in the controller and are available for visualization immediately thanks to 100 percent data consistency.
