Siemens have enhanced Simatic Human Machine Interface (HMI) device series with all-round IP65 protection with modular expansion units. The new components in the design of the HMI devices are equipped for plant-specific operator control and monitoring tasks, such as illuminated pushbuttons, lamps, switches, USB ports or emergency stop buttons.
The modular expansion units are suitable for Simatic HMI devices with all-round IP65 protection and are optionally attached on the left side, right side, or both sides of the Multi Panel 377 Pro 15”, Thin Client Pro 15”, or Flat Panel Monitor Pro 15”.
The complete system comprising an HMI device and expansion units have IP65 protection and permits additional control activities and applications directly on-site at the operator station. The modular expansion units are also wired up directly to the support arm system, independent of the HMI device, so that the wiring does not have to be disconnected for maintenance or replacement of the HMI device.
