The picture shows the new Simatic HMI Comfort Panel for operator control and monitoring

The new Simatic HMI Comfort Panels PRO with total IP65 degree of protection have brilliant, continuously dimmable widescreen displays with 16 million colors and up to 170 degree angle of vision. The nonreflecting glass front has a modern design with a scratchproof, chemical resistant surface that allows operation with gloves. The Comfort Panels PRO are equipped with an integrated system card for automatic backups, and are also suitable for energy management directly on the machine, for example with Profienergy. Harmonized interaction with the Advanced Controllers Simatic S7-1500 and the use of conventional standard connectors for the cabling enable operator control and monitoring solutions to be realized especially economically. The mechanical design features adapters for flexible cabinet-free mounting on conventional stand or support arm systems. The individual mounting and placing options offer the operator a very high level of convenience and always an optimal view of the panel and visualization.

The Simatic HMI PRO series offers additional add-on system components for customized function and operation enhancements. The standard system – consisting of basic unit, expansion components, mounting adapter, and optional keyboard and keyboard shelf – allow customized, flexibly adaptable operator control and monitoring solutions. The devices are distinguished by easy mounting, quick commissioning and efficient engineering, and offer many years of cost-effective, safe and reliable operation. Siemens won the iF Design Award 2017 for the innovative system concept of the Simatic HMI PRO series.
