Improved process quality
Visualization allows for considerably increased process quality with compact plants or smaller applications. Featuring all important HMI basic functions, SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels 2nd Generation thus open up completely new possibilities in terms of operation and monitoring also in the field of mechanical engineering at a particularly attractive price.
Like all other devices in our product range, Basic Panels 2nd Generation offer proven SIMATIC quality and, regardless of display size, numerous software functions as standard – for example, alarm logging, recipe management, trend functions and language switching.
SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels 2nd Generation can be configured via SIMATIC WinCC (TIA Portal) in the cost-efficient Basic Edition which already offers the outstanding usability and unprecedented engineering efficiency of the Engineering Framework. The user can easily create visualization applications within short time.
As the software is scalable, he can start with a small solution and further expand it any time as required – for example by increasing the number of tags or change to panels of another performance range.
High resolution wide-screen displays
SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels 2nd Generation are available with high-resolution wide-screen displays from 4“ to 12“. These also support configurations with portrait orientation.
Their high resolution and color depth of 64,000 colors facilitate improved process visualization. The displays’ brightness is dimmable up to 100 %, offering optimum flexibility.
The innovative user interface provides a great variety in terms of experiencing and operation. SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels feature user-friendly touch screens and particularly handy, freely configurable keys.
The USB interface facilitates the connection of keyboard, mouse or barcode scanner and supports easy data archiving on a USB stick.
Thanks to a PROFIBUS or PROFINET interface, SIMATIC HMI Basic Panels 2nd Generation allow for connection with various PLCs. The visualization of applications of the Basic Controller SIMATIC S7-1200 offers particularly great added value.
