New Panel PC and Industrial LCD monitors with key operation

18.11.2009
Siemens Industry Automation Division has expanded its existing product portfolio of Panel PCs and Industrial LCD monitors by new devices with key operation.
For the Panel PCs Simatic HMI IPC477C and HMI IPC577C there are now 12" and 15" devices with keys in addition to the 12", 15" and 19" devices with touch screen. For the Simatic Industrial LCD monitors, the company is expanding its existing line of pure display units and devices with touch functionality by two compact 12" and 15" monitors with key operation.

The function and system keys on the front of the new devices with key operation are programmable so that you can access frequently recurring input sequences or functions in less time. An integrated LED confirms key operation for users; an integrated mouse and the tactile feedback for key input make operation even more convenient. All devices come equipped with a robust front of IP65 rating and offer bright displays.

The robust design of the Panel PC Simatic HMI IPC477C in embedded technology without rotating parts was designed for maintenance-free, 24-hour operation. The devices are very compact and offer high performance for use directly at the machine. They are also available with installed automation software: for operation and monitoring, for control jobs – even fail-safe – or process visualization as WinCC standalone/client. Simatic HMI IPC577C is the entry model to the class of Panel PCs. Both models are available without hard drive for industrial applications that require a high degree of ruggedness: with 32 Gigabyte Solid State Drive (SSD) or Compact flash card. You can configure the Panel PCs Simatic HMI IPC477C and HMI IPC577C to match your individual needs. They can, for example, be equipped with powerful Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

The Simatic Industrial LCD monitors were designed for industrial use and can be used as an option for any Simatic Industrial PC. You can operate them at a distance of up to 30 meters, for example, serving as a second display unit for a Panel PC. They offer a high-resolution display with almost no reflection as well as a large horizontal and vertical reading angle of 170 degrees.

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
