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: Poröse kristalline Materialien: TU Graz-Forscher zeigt Methode zum gezielten Wachstum

Mikroporöse Kristalle (MOFs) bergen große Potentiale für die funktionalen Materialien der Zukunft. Paolo Falcaro von der TU Graz et al zeigen in Nature Materials, wie man MOFs gezielt im großen Maßstab wachsen lässt.

„Metal-organic frameworks“ (MOFs) genannte poröse Kristalle bestehen aus metallischen Knotenpunkten mit organischen Molekülen als Verbindungselemente. Dank...

Im Focus: Gravitationswellen als Sensor für Dunkle Materie

Die mit der Entdeckung von Gravitationswellen entstandene neue Disziplin der Gravitationswellen-Astronomie bekommt eine weitere Aufgabe: die Suche nach Dunkler Materie. Diese könnte aus einem Bose-Einstein-Kondensat sehr leichter Teilchen bestehen. Wie Rechnungen zeigen, würden Gravitationswellen gebremst, wenn sie durch derartige Dunkle Materie laufen. Dies führt zu einer Verspätung von Gravitationswellen relativ zu Licht, die bereits mit den heutigen Detektoren messbar sein sollte.

Im Universum muss es gut fünfmal mehr unsichtbare als sichtbare Materie geben. Woraus diese Dunkle Materie besteht, ist immer noch unbekannt. Die...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Wie sich Zellen gegen Salmonellen verteidigen

Bioinformatiker der Goethe-Universität haben das erste mathematische Modell für einen zentralen Verteidigungsmechanismus der Zelle gegen das Bakterium Salmonella entwickelt. Sie können ihren experimentell arbeitenden Kollegen damit wertvolle Anregungen zur Aufklärung der beteiligten Signalwege geben.

Jedes Jahr sind Salmonellen weltweit für Millionen von Infektionen und tausende Todesfälle verantwortlich. Die Körperzellen können sich aber gegen die...
