The new Basic Panels from the Simatic HMI (Human Machine Interface) product range have basic functions for operator control and monitoring, for example, an integrated alarm system, recipe management and trend curve functionality.
The Simatic HMI Basic Panels have a high degree of protection (IP65) which makes them suitable for use in tough industrial environments.
The first delivery stage comprises a large 15" device that offers a TFT touch display with 256 colors. A 10" version also has keys with tactile feedback. Depending on the version, integrated Profinet/Ethernet, Profibus or MPI/PPI interfaces are available for communication.
The Simatic HMI Basic Panels are mounting-compatible with the Simatic HMI touch devices already available and, like these, are also configured with the fully scalable Simatic WinCC flexible 2008 engineering software.
This offers the user the option of switching at any time to devices in other performance classes or with other display sizes. The range is further extended by devices with small displays.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
