SIMATIC HMI - Efficiency in machine-level operator control and monitoring(Video)
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.
Basic HMI is recommended for simple applications with a limited quantity scale and where the price-performance ratio is important in addition to a fast and intuitive operation.
For higher demands
If you are looking for a panel-based solution for more demanding applications with larger quantity scales, make a decision for Advanced HMI.
For high-end solutions
If production places particularly high demands on the quantity and type of information that must be processed and documented, a PC-based system is recommended. It offers the appropriate options for sufficient storage space, processing power, and data connectivity.
