Operator panels (HMI)
A vital factor in the world of automation Siemens’ human machine interface technology SIMATIC HMI is engineered to meet the increasingly complex processes of your machines and systems. SIMATIC HMI is optimized to meet your specific human machine interface needs using open and standardized interfaces in hardware and software, which allow efficient integration into your automation systems.
OP HMI:Operator Panels (HMI)
Siemens OPs are a finely graded range of HMI devices available for local operator control and monitoring. These Operator Panels include Push Button Panels and Micro Panels up to Mobile Panels, Basic Panels, Panels and Multi Panels. HMI devices with all-round IP65/NEMA 4 protection for distributed configurations are available for applications with especially high requirements with regard to ruggedness.
Push Button Panels:
Push Button Panels (PP) are the innovative alternative to conventionally wired operator keypads. Supplied pre-assembled and ready for installation, the bus-compatible operator panels are the key to drastically reducing wiring times when compared with conventional methods.
Micro Panels: Designed specifically for applications with the SIMATIC S7-200 micro PLC, either with text display (TD) or pixel-graphics display, as operator panels (OP) with membrane keyboard or touch screen (TP).
The portable operator panels facilitate operator control and monitoring at the actual scene of the event with direct access and visual contact to the process. They provide simple and safe reconnection during operation (Mobile Panel 177 and Mobile Panel 277) or wireless freedom (Mo.
Basic Panels: Basic Panels offer basic HMI functionality for small machines and applications. They are available in four different display sizes from 4" to 15", with touch displays and additional keys, for connecting to PROFINET/Ethernet or PROFIBUS DP/MPI.
