Option plus


Configuring IT-related functions for HMI systems

The SIMATIC HMI Option+ application acts as a gateway between runtime and the operating system of the HMI Panel, providing access to completely new functions. The application can be easily loaded to Comfort Panels and Mobile Panels snd Generation using the ProSave tool, installed on the Panel and immediately configured.

The user can call SIMATIC HMI Option+ from runtime to easily display system information without requiring advanced IT skills, configure interfaces and user identification and use advanced functions for machine monitoring. To ensure that only authorized employees have access to these functions, access to Option+ can be restricted and protected with a password.

In addition to Option+ Siemens offers PC-based Option+ Manager. SIMATIC HMI Option+ Manager is a software for centralized administration of operator device data. The software runs on a PC which is connected with the panels in an existing network. For data transmission the webserver functionality of the SIMATIC HMI panels is used.
