Give your machine an unmistakable face and turn the interface between machine and human into the trademark of your automation solution. The templates are available for SIMATIC WinCC Basic Panels and SIMATIC WinCC Comfort Panels.

Plants and machines are becoming increasingly complex and therefore more and more difficult to operate. For this reason, designing an intuitive and graphically appealing user interface is becoming more important. With the "HMI Template Suite", Siemens provides you an attractive template to visualize your plant. By using SiVArc, you can generate standard elements and adjust the visualization to your system.

The "HMI Template Suite" provides you

  • an intuitive operating concept, optimized for touch operation
  • the possibility of seamlessly integrating your own content into this operating concept
  • examples for the visualization of different HMI-screens

The following video illustrates how to integrate the visualization into your project:
