SIMATIC HMI Selection Help now on the Intranet

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

The new, patent-pending SIMATIC HMI Selection Help is a tool for the easy selection of HMI products. It is a tool for all that know their requirements and do not want to examine the technology in the smallest detail in order to find a matching product.
In the first expansion stage of the Selection Help, the complete range of SIMATIC Panels and Multi Panels is offered. Future expansions will broaden the automatic solution finder to include the entire HMI spectrum.

After entering the desired requirements (e.g. operating mode, display type, PLC interface, etc.), all matching SIMATIC HMI products will be displayed. Interactively and with the greatest of ease, an optimal solution can be found in a short time.

It is also possible to find a suitable replacement product to an already existing device with a click of the mouse.
The intuitive operation is further supported through "ToolTips" and explanatory graphics.

Please tell us about your Selection Help experiences and also requests using the feedback button located at the bottom of every SIMATIC HMI Selection Help page.

After a temporary Siemens-internal (Intranet) introductory phase, the SIMATIC HMI Selection Help will be made available globally. You will be informed about the Internet address in due time.
