SIMATIC Industrial Monitors and Thin Clients
Always the first choice in industrial monitors and Thin Clients
Much more than just a simple industrial monitor, Siemens provides reliable and extremely rugged industrial monitors with a multitude of uses. Whether for control centers, as a built-in unit for control consoles, or as PC-based visualization and control solutions where the operator panel is operated at a distance from the industrial PC or server, SIMATIC industrial monitors and thin clients always offer you the optimal solution – as a standalone solution or with several control stations in extensive visualization and control solutions. SIMATIC industrial monitors have received the prestigious iF product design award for their innovative product design.
Industrial monitor or network client?What options does SIMATIC offer for operator control and visualization concepts using industrial PCs? When are monitors the best choice and when are network clients recommended? You’ll find important decision-making aids here.
Traditional monitor with IPC configuration or a client-server architecture?
Real-time visualization and operation
With robust and extremely reliable SIMATIC Industrial Flat Panels, you can easily implement remote operating and display stations for sophisticated visualization tasks in harsh industrial environments. Thanks to their plug-and-play design, industrial monitors are simple to connect and are instantly ready to use for operation and the visualization of device, machine, and plant data. You can also use SIMATIC Industrial Flat Panels to access your IPC BIOS in order to modify settings even before the operating system is booted up and the communication drivers are activated.
Whether their format is landscape or portrait, SIMATIC Industrial Flat Panels cut a fine figure as a built-in or wall-mounted device. The IP65-protected PRO variants are also available with a support arm or pedestal. However, industrial monitors can also be used for convenient multimonitoring in order to keep an eye on multiple processes and extensive parameters simultaneously.

SIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients for remote operator control and monitoring from any distanceSIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients make it possible to implement extremely inexpensive client-server architectures even with very long distances between the Thin Clients and the server because SIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients communicate exclusively via Ethernet.
Flexible HMI concepts with low operating costs
SIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients are powerful operator terminals with high-resolution widescreen touch displays in 15", 19", and 22" formats. They are especially flexible to use in implementing distributed HMI solutions with client-server architecture from machine-level operator control and monitoring, right up to connection to control systems (SCADA) and numerical controls (SINUMERIK).
Monitors and Thin Clients for industryWith SIMATIC Industrial Monitors and Thin Clients, you’re guaranteed maximum product quality, availability, and planning reliability when it comes to distributed operator control and monitoring in PC-based automation – even in the harshest industrial environments. Our Industrial Flat Panels and Industrial Thin Clients were specially developed and built with the demands of industry in mind.
Designed for industry
When it comes to quality, we leave nothing to chance: starting in the development phase, we focus on the quality design of parts to the selection of components. Production in climate-controlled halls with constant temperature and air humidity, special test procedures, and series-accompanying type tests and trials ensure 100% correct functioning and compliance with all technical specifications. The quality of product packaging is especially high and in compliance with strict shipping guidelines to ensure that the product arrives in perfect condition. We not only comply with the requirements of CE and UL approvals but far exceed them. This is demonstrated by regular inspections of field quality.
In this way, we protect your investments. Because the products also conform to our own Siemens standard SN 36350-1 for environmentally sound product design, we also reduce the environmental impact from production to disposal.
Designed for 24/7 operation
Plants and machines have to run reliably, even under the harshest environmental conditions. With SIMATIC IFPs und SIMATIC ITCs, you’re always on the safe side. Thanks to their rugged industrial design, they’re equipped for reliable 24/7 continuous operation in industrial environments, including in ambient temperatures ranging from –20°C to +50°C. Their high system availability is guaranteed, thanks to their solid housing, dust protection, electromagnetic compatibility, and high resistance to shock and vibrations. Another reason why SIMATIC Industrial Thin Clients are so rugged and maintenance-free is because they have no wearing parts like fans or hard disks.
Designed for long deliverability
With SIMATIC IFP Industrial Monitors and SIMATIC ITC Industrial Thin Clients, you benefit from extreme planning reliability, whether for ongoing operation, expansions, or machine and plant concepts. The device concept for this series guarantees a deliverability of 5 to 6 years after the market launch, as well as repair and spare parts services for an additional 5 to 6 years. This means that you can count on a total long-term availability of up to 11 years.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
