With the Key Panels SIMATIC HMI KP8/KP8F PN Siemens offers a compact keypad operator panel designed for PROFINET environments at a favourable price.
Eight large and ergonomic keys, which can be illuminated in five different colors form a unit.
For larger control panels you can add further units without a gap and electrically connected due to integrated Ethernet switches as well as looped through 24 V DC.
For safety-related applications there is a failsafe variant KP8F PN.
With the new Key Panel KP32F SIMATIC HMI offers a larger keypad operator panel designed for PROFINET environment and failsafe applications. 32 large and ergonomic keys, which can be illuminated in five different colors form a unit.
For larger control panels you can add further KP32 or KP8 units without a gap and electrically connected due to integrated Ethernet switches as well as looped through 24 V DC.
Visualization is a standard features of most industrial machines today and cost is a critical factor, particularly in the case of small machines and compact applications. For common tasks, operator panels with basic functions are often considered completely adequate.
It is precisely this requirement that we are addressing with our SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels. Concentrating on the essentials, these operator panels provide exactly the basic functionality that is needed – and on ideal economic terms. A perfect balance of price and performance.
Visualization allows for considerably increased process quality with compact plants or smaller applications. Featuring all important HMI basic functions, SIMATIC
HMI Basic Panels 2nd Generation thus open up completely new possibilities in terms of operation and monitoring also in the field of mechanical engineering at a particularly attractive price.
All SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels universally provide the same high-end functionality. With high-resolution widescreen displays from 4" to 22", optionally available with touch operation or control keys, they can be optimally adapted to any application. One of the numerous innovations compared to previous SIMATIC Panels is the capability of coordinating and centrally shutting down the device displays via PROFIenergy during break times in order to reduce energy consumption. Comfort Panels are configured using the SIMATIC WinCC Comfort Engineering Software of the new Totally Integrated Automation Portal
Windows CE based Handheld Panels for mobile HMI close to the machine with combined key and touch operation available in three variants for use in PROFIBUS environment and corresponding variants with PROFINET connection.
SIMATIC Mobile Panels are compact, ergonomically designed, while at the same time being rugged enough for industrial use. They are operated by means of touch screens and membrane keyboards. Additional operating elements increase user-friendliness and permit direct access to the distributed IO.
As part of the sophisticated safety concept, the STOP pushbutton can be used for stopping the machine in critical situations.
The Mobile Panels of series 270 combine the advantages of mobile HMI with the power of the 270 performance class.
Series 270 Mobile Panels are offered as wired devices with 8 and 10 inch TFT-displays and wireless 8 inch devices with standard or failsafe functionality.
All wired devices can be connected to PROFIBUS or PROFINET. The selection of the desired communication bus takes place by selecting the corresponding cable and respective connection box. For this, all cables and connection boxes already released for the Mobile Panel 177 are available.
