In industrial environments it might happen that electromagnetic fields interfere with the functionality of SIMATIC devices with touch screen displays. Although the SIMATIC products have been tested and certified in compliance with the relevant CE standards, it is possible that additional connected devices (USB, VGA, LAN, etc.) nevertheless cause EMC problems and affect the SIMATIC devices.
Information about the chemical resistance of the fronts/surfaces of our SIMATIC HMI operator panels.
You can use the CAx download manager to access the latest product data for your CAD or CAE system.
Different variants of how the BIOS update can be carried out will be explained in detail. Furthermore, the best practice variant for your IPC type will be illustrated.
Total product discontinuation will be declared as per Oct. 1, 2018, for the following SIMATIC products to streamline the product portfolio.

Internal PC communication connections can be established via the PC's network interface without using a network cable. For this to work properly you must disable the "Media Sensing" function.
USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 interfaces have to be disabled separately.
Monitoring the status of the SIMATIC IPCs is an indispensable task for guaranteeing the operation of PC-based systems.
The Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) protects one or more partitions against unwanted write access or changes. The "SIMATIC IPC EWF Manager" software is available for downloading free of charge.
Product discontinuation (product cancellation / milestone P.M410) will be declared for SIMATIC Box PC 477C and 577C as per June 1, 2016.
When a computer starts up (SIMATIC IPC, for example), you are asked which user name you want to use to log on to the system. This interrupts the automatic startup, which is undesirable, for example, after a power failure.
With the SIMATIC IPCs it can take a long time for the "Onscreen Keyboard" software to open, depending on the type. The behavior might occur if an IO field has been selected in WinCC Advanced Runtime and the "Onscreen Keyboard" is supposed to open.
To achieve the best possible performance, stability and reliability for your SIMATIC IPC, always use the latest BIOS version.
