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: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Mit solaren Gebäudehüllen Architektur gestalten

Solarthermie ist in der breiten Öffentlichkeit derzeit durch dunkelblaue, rechteckige Kollektoren auf Hausdächern besetzt. Für ästhetisch hochwertige Architektur werden Technologien benötigt, die dem Architekten mehr Gestaltungsspielraum für Niedrigst- und Plusenergiegebäude geben. Im Projekt »ArKol« entwickeln Forscher des Fraunhofer ISE gemeinsam mit Partnern aktuell zwei Fassadenkollektoren für solare Wärmeerzeugung, die ein hohes Maß an Designflexibilität erlauben: einen Streifenkollektor für opake sowie eine solarthermische Jalousie für transparente Fassadenanteile. Der aktuelle Stand der beiden Entwicklungen wird auf der BAU 2017 vorgestellt.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
