Effective immediately, the SIMATIC Mobile Panel 277F IWLAN (Safety version, RoW - Rest of World - version) is available ex warehouse. The SIMATIC Mobile Panel 277F IWLAN with 8" TFT touchscreen featuring 64K colors expands the family of the SIMATIC Mobile Panels by the worldwide first wireless safety device (SIL 3) in the 270 series performance class.  

Due to current developments in the radio certification process, this model will not be sold in the USA! For the USA, separate order numbers will be provided starting Q1/2009! 

The new device wirelessly offers the advantages of a Mobile Panel in the 270 series performance class:

  • Emergency stop (safety category SIL 3)
  • 2 enabling keys 
  • Safe detection of the position of the operator by the effective zone system    
  • No wiring work for the connection boxes 
  • No handling of cables during the operation  
  • Flexible use with automatic zone detection  
  • Application where direct visual contact with the process is required, e.g., for the precise setup or adjustment of process parameters 
  • Reliable, wireless communication via IWLAN

Projects for wireless applications can now also be implemented that, e.g., 

  • cover many different connection areas 
  • cover larger connection areas 

The device can only be configured with WinCC flexible 2007 Standard (HSP 19241467); features include direct keys and the effective zone functionality (when using transponders), as well as a STOP pushbutton and enabling keys. For WinCC flexible 2008 Standard, the release will only take place starting with Service Pack 1.


Effective immediately, the SIMATIC Mobile Panel 277F IWLAN is available ex warehouse.
