Industrial monitors and Thin Clients in widescreen format

14.03.2012
The Siemens Industry Automation Division has now added highly efficient industrial monitors and thin clients to its range of robust HMI (Human Machine Interface) devices in widescreen format.

They are available as terminals or operating and monitoring devices with touch screen or key-operated fronts, with display diagonals ranging from 12 to 22 inches. The devices are used for machine-level operator control and monitoring, as well as for linking to remote control or SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems.


Simatic Flat Panel monitors are suitable for connection to industrial PCs at distances of up to 30 meters, while Simatic Thin Clients can be used for distributed solutions involving long distances and multiple stations. The new products have won the "iF product design award 2012".

The new, robust widescreen Simatic IFP and Simatic ITC devices feature high long-term availability. Equipped with die-cast aluminum fronts, they are designed for maintenance-free, 24-hour continuous operation and also meet high-temperature, vibration, shock and EMC requirements. The energy-saving LED background lighting can be continuously dimmed by up to 100 percent and is especially long-lasting and very luminous when used in brightly lit working environments. The widescreen monitors allow a clear display and user interface design as well as offering high resolution and very good readability from all angles.

The new Industrial Flat Panel Simatic IFP is suitable for use as an industrial monitor with fast response times, for example, for jogging and plotting. Panels are available in 15, 19 and 22 inch sizes as pure display devices or with touch screen operation. There is also a 15-inch touch version with function keys, a front USB port and a keypad. The devices can also be mounted vertically if space is restricted. They are connected via DVI-D or the new DisplayPort interface to an industrial PC, which can be at a distance of up to 30 meters. The monitors are Atex certified. Marine approval is pending.

The new Industrial Thin Client Simatic ITC for client-server architectures has no wearing mechanical parts, such as a fan or hard disk, which makes it especially robust and maintenance-free. The touch screen device, with display diagonals of 12, 15, 19 or 22 inches, is connected to one or, in multi-session mode, to several servers, such as Simatic IPCs. Redundant systems can be configured for high availability. The Thin Clients are equipped with a1.2 gigahertz Intel Celeron processor for demanding HMI applications. A large number of functions and interfaces are integrated: a gigabit LAN interface for fast communication with the server, two USB interfaces for saving data on a USB stick or external hard disk, as well as for connecting mouse and keyboard; a web browser and multiple protocols for flexible connection to other systems, such as RDP, SmartAccess for Simatic WinCC Sm@rtServer, VNC and Sinumerik. There is a new Setup Wizard to make commissioning and integration into existing networks quick and easy. Remote configuration software enables the Thin Clients to be managed centrally via a network, for example for a parallel firmware update. The mirroring function is used for efficient diagnostics, for example to display the contents of the screen in the control room or to control it from there.

Im Focus: Tumult im trägen Elektronen-Dasein

Ein internationales Team von Physikern hat erstmals das Streuverhalten von Elektronen in einem nichtleitenden Material direkt beobachtet. Ihre Erkenntnisse könnten der Strahlungsmedizin zu Gute kommen.

Elektronen in nichtleitenden Materialien könnte man Trägheit nachsagen. In der Regel bleiben sie an ihren Plätzen, tief im Inneren eines solchen Atomverbunds....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Hauchdünne magnetische Materialien für zukünftige Quantentechnologien entwickelt

Zweidimensionale magnetische Strukturen gelten als vielversprechendes Material für neuartige Datenspeicher, da sich die magnetischen Eigenschaften einzelner Molekülen untersuchen und verändern lassen. Forscher haben nun erstmals einen hauchdünnen Ferrimagneten hergestellt, bei dem sich Moleküle mit verschiedenen magnetischen Zentren auf einer Goldfläche selbst zu einem Schachbrettmuster anordnen. Dies berichten Wissenschaftler des Swiss Nanoscience Institutes der Universität Basel und des Paul Scherrer Institutes in der Wissenschaftszeitschrift «Nature Communications».

Ferrimagneten besitzen zwei magnetische Zentren, deren Magnetismus verschieden stark ist und in entgegengesetzte Richtungen zeigt. Zweidimensionale, quasi...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
