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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
