  • Entry
The page gives you an overview of the most important documents and links for SIMATIC HMI devices. Both newcomers and experienced users have an entry here to the essential information.

The all-round IP65-protected operator panels complete the portfolio of HMI operator panels with glass front. The robust die-cast aluminum housing of the SIMATIC HMI PRO devices (PRO = Protected) allows them to be used directly on the machine in rough environmental conditions.

Here you have direct access to the essential technical information and solutions of the SIMATIC Industrial Thin Client PRO V3 devices.  


Which frame colors are used for the SIMATIC Panels and SIMATIC IPCs?
Which external storage media can you use with the current SIMATIC panels and which memory card interfaces do they have?
How do you do a SIMATIC HMI operating system update (firmware update, OS update) on operator panels or perform a "Reset to factory settings"?
How do you synchronize the time between an S7-1200 CPU and an HMI operator panel?
In WinCC (TIA Portal), how do you configure a connection between WinCC Runtime Advanced or HMI Panel and an S7 controller over Industrial Ethernet (PROFINET)?
