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: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...

Im Focus: Small collisions make big impact on Mercury's thin atmosphere

Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
