HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels for extreme ambient conditions

09.04.2015

Siemens at the Hannover Messe 2015, Hall 9, Booth D35

  • New Simatic HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels for operating in temperatures from minus 30 to plus 60 degrees Celsius
  • Bright 7" and 15" widescreen displays with automatic dimming
  • Reliable legibility in a variety of light conditions
  • Long-term stability due to UV-protected device front with degree of protection IP65

Siemens has expanded its high-performance Comfort Panel class in the Simatic HMI (Human Machine Interface) series to include particularly rugged devices for use in extreme ambient conditions. The Simatic HMI TP700 and Simatic HMI TP1500 Comfort Outdoor Panels are equipped with a UV-protected device front with degree of protection IP65 and are ideally suited for use in refrigerated buildings, ships, or the oil and gas industry.

The new devices can be used in a wide range of temperatures from minus 30 to plus 60 degrees Celsius and in up to 90 percent air humidity in nearly any environment and industry. The high-resolution and daylight-readable 7" or 15" widescreen displays with an aspect ratio of 16:9 and up to 16 million colors can also display complex process or plant images in a manageable, detailed manner.

The high degree of glare reduction, wide reading angles, and automatic dimming allow for reliable and strain-free operator control and monitoring. This allows the user to reliably read data even when the weather changes or in changing light conditions.

For the optimal use of space in the plant or for special machine designs, the panels can also be installed upright and operated in portrait mode. In the event of a power failure, the virtually maintenance-free Comfort Outdoor Panels ensure maximum data security by storing sufficient energy to exit all active archives without errors and to back up the data.

Comprehensive certifications for use in hazardous areas according to Ex2/22, FM Class I Div. 2 or for shipbuilding applications are pending. The Touch Panels are integrated into the automation solution via Profinet and are configured using the Simatic WinCC engineering tool in the TIA Portal. The operating screens already developed for other Comfort Panels can be adopted with little effort and supplemented with the specifics for use outdoors. In addition, Siemens also provides a long service and support period of 22 years for these rugged devices.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
