  • Относится к продукту(ам)

With immediate effect, the new SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels in the display sizes 4", 7", 9" and 12" are available. There are four touchscreen and four keypad devices. All devices are equipped with high-resolution, high-contrast widescreen displays and provide consistent functionality across all display sizes. 

Reason for the Product Development

With the SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels, a new generation of devices for demanding operator control & monitoring tasks is offered. The range of the SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels provides the same high-end functionality - consistently and with maximum performance. The panels are available with high-resolution, high-contrast widescreen displays ranging in size between 4" and 12", and with either touchscreen or keypad control. They are thus optimally adaptable to any application. Among the many innovations compared to the previous SIMATIC panels is the option for centrally turning off the displays of the devices at coordinated idle times via PROFIenergy in order to reduce the energy consumption. The panel line is configured with the engineering software SIMATIC WinCC V11 of the new Totally Integrated Automation portal. Thanks to their ruggedness and approvals, the SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels are suitable for even the harshest environmental conditions.
