SIMATIC HMI – your advantages at a glance

Added value = more value!

SIMATIC HMI Panels have proven their value in many different applications in all industrial sectors over many years. The range of the systems in use is just as wide as that of the applications and technologies in the respective plants.

Equipment for monitoring and operator control is needed wherever people have to work with machinery and plants performing tasks A to Z. It is not difficult to find the right device for the specific task. The challenge is to find a solution that is future-proof and flexible, that can be integrated into higher-level networks, and that can also meet the ever-increasing demands for transparency and data provision.

HMI solutions are the only interface between man and machine. Optimal interaction between the two makes a valuable contribution in the following ways:

  • Productivity – means competitiveness

  • Efficiency – means cost savings

  • Usability – means time savings

Efficient engineering with SIMATIC HMI

Machine-level visualization with SIMATIC HMI – Efficient engineering: Create your visualization faster and more easily than ever before!

Reuse proven components

Searching for errors is just about the most irritating and time-consuming job an engineer has to do. That is why we have made the TIA Portal a smart system. Type conflicts in interconnection caused by multiple entries or missing data and tags are detected immediately in the engineering process. This saves a great deal of time when configuring with WinCC in the TIA Portal!

Avoid failure and multiple entries

Don't waste valuable time on a new project because you have to start your engineering from scratch. The TIA Portal provides a comprehensive library that allows you to effortlessly archive and reuse old projects. It also contains a large number of preassembled elements. Once done, a task need not be repeated! A system that follows. This safe a lot of time while creating projects.

Test and evaluation before commissioning

Usability is a critical aspect in a visualization. Whenever you wish to test the usability of your engineering, you can simply use the TIA Portal Simulation function. You can test and analyze your configuration under "secured" realistic conditions in a virtual environment. Even before your end product has been commissioned, you can be sure that it will work correctly!
