New 10.4" and 15.6" displays for Sinumerik 828 controls


EMO 2015, Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • With its PPU 290, Siemens is offering the Sinumerik 828D and the Sinumerik 828D Advanced with a 15.6" touch display for the first time
  • 10.4" displays are now also available as a standard for the Sinumerik 828D Basic

Larger 10.4" displays now come as a standard on the Sinumerik 828D Basic, replacing the 8.4" version. With its panel processing unit (PPU) 290, Siemens is also offering both the Sinumerik 828D and the Sinumerik 828D Advanced with a 15.6" display equipped with capacitive touch technology for the first time. The touch display can be operated intuitively with single touch gestures.

The full QWERTY keyboard, which is integrated into the operator panel underneath the screen, makes it possible to quickly input data, for example when programming CNC tasks. The wider screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1366 x 678 pixels provides more space for detailed images. The 15.6" display on the Sinumerik 828D Advanced is ideal for viewing two channels, for example during turning and grinding operations.

The PPU 290's rugged magnesium die-cast operator panel with a scratch-proof glass surface provides an IP65 degree of protection. The display works even in harsh environments – such as when in contact with dust, shavings or lubricants – and can be operated with gloves. An RJ45 Ethernet port and a USB port are located on the panel front for quick, easy networking and connecting external storage devices. A ranging sensor automatically darkens the display when it is not in use. As is customary in the Sinumerik 828 controls, the panel is designed without a fan or hard disk, making it maintenance free. Meanwhile, NV-RAM technology allows emergency backups to be made without the need for a battery. Version 4.7 Service Pack 2 of Sinumerik Operate is required to use the new displays.

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

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...
