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 optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
