The all-round IP65-protected HMI devices round out a portfolio of HMI devices with glass fronts. The rugged aluminum housing of the SIMATIC HMI PRO devices (PRO = Protected) enables it to be used directly at the machine, even in harsh environmental conditions
The PRO devices are available with various functions as Flat Panel Monitors and Embedded Panel PCs.
Coming soon are IP65 protected SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels combining panel based advanced HMI functions with the benefits of PROtected devices.
Fully protected panel PC with touch functionality and a high degree of protection (class IP65) – for mounting on a supporting arm or pedestal
Industrial flat panel with high degree of protection (class IP65) – for practical gesture and multi-finger operation.
Using base adapters from a variety of manufacturers, the operator control units can mounted both on a pedestal, or optionally connected to a support arm either from the top or bottom. This means they can be used directly at the machine outside the control cabinet for ergonomic operation at different points in the plant or production line.
The HMI devices features a crystal clear, scratch-resistant and continuous glass front with high chemical resistance. Special features include industry-standard anti-glare as well as high sharpness and brightness for easy readability, even at wide viewing angle. Just like the automatic detection of spurious contact and operator actions, for example, from resting palms or soiling. The projected capacitive touch (PCT) technology enables efficient gestures, single-touch and multi-touch operation, even with thin work gloves. For example, image contents can be panned, zoomed, or hidden components shown both intuitively and quickly.
