Product Discontinuation: SIMATIC Panel PC 477 incl. all Bundles

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

As announced on 04/01/2008, the SIMATIC Panel PC 477 models will - effective immediately - be listed as discontinued, i.e., new devices can no longer be delivered. This affects both the hardware as well as all offered HMI and HMI/RTX bundles (all order numbers starting with 6AV784...). A repair of the SIMATIC Panel PC 477 will be assured for 5 more years (until approx. 04/01/2013).    




With the availability of further orderable options and all preloaded software options for the SIMATIC Panel PC 477B embedded, any configuration - in addition to the application-oriented versions (embedded and TIA) - can now be selected analogous to the Panel PC 477.   

Consequently, all combinations of the PC 477 can be replaced by the Panel PC 477B with considerably more computing performance and equipment options.

With regard to the processor, the mid-range processor Pentium M, Celeron 1.0 GHz of the PC 477B already offers greater performance than the high-end processor Pentium III 933 MHz of the PC 477. 

Images created for the Panel PC 477 cannot be reused on the PC 477B due to the new hardware.   

WinCC flexible projects have to be migrated to Version 2007 / 2008. Please observe the information regarding WinCC flexible.   

STEP 7 programs for WinAC RTX can be adopted 1:1.
