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.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.
When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
