Small-format mobile operation and monitoring

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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
