Small-format mobile operation and monitoring

17.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • Small Simatic HMI KTP400F Mobile Panel with 4 inch widescreen display
  • 16 million colors for a clear, detailed display
  • Illuminated emergency stop button for safe automation
  • Compact connection box for small machines with limited available space

Siemens has added a small mobile operating and monitoring device to its cable-connected Mobile Panel product line. The new Simatic HMI KTP400F Mobile Panel has a bright, 4 inch widescreen display, and offers the same performance flexibility, comfort and quality features as the 7 and 9 inch panels.

Complex process and system images are displayed clearly and in detail on the 16:9 aspect ratio display in 16 million colors. Outstanding features are the unique, illuminated emergency stop button, the flexible options for integration into safety applications, and a connection box that can be mounted directly on the control cabinet.

The Simatic HMI KTP400F Mobile Panel IP65 operator panel can be used within a wide temperature range from 0 to 45 degrees Celsius; it is also dust-tight, protected against splashwater and resistant to chemicals. The operator panel has touch and key operation, and is integrated into an automation solution via Profinet. All Mobile Panels are configured in the TIA Portal with the Simatic WinCC engineering tool. With the new-style editor, operating screens can be adapted to different design requirements at the touch of a button.

Background information:

Simatic HMI Mobile Panels of the second generation have a rugged industrial design that can withstand a drop of up to 1.2 meters, and have the same functionality and performance as Simatic HMI Comfort Panels. Operating screens can thus be configured for both stationary and mobile applications, and then, for example, supplemented with mobile specifications. The widescreen format display delivers a pin-sharp, bright, detailed image. It can be fully dimmed for adaptation to different environments.

The emergency stop button is only lit when the mobile operator panel is linked into a safety circuit. The compact connection box requires only one third of the space of the previous model, and can be mounted directly on a control cabinet. This is a particular advantage for small machines with very little available space. The connection box is simply screwed onto the outside of the control cabinet door, and then fully wired from the inside. Rugged connection cables are available in lengths ranging from 2 to 25 meters so that the user can always have adequate freedom of movement.

User ergonomics have also been improved in comparison to previous panels. For example, the three-step enabling switch on the panel handle now has two distinct pressure points.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
