SIMATIC HMI Panels – machine-oriented operation made easy


Equipment for monitoring and operator control is needed wherever people have to work with machinery and plant performing all kinds of tasks. SIMATIC HMI Panels are always the first choice when it comes to machine-oriented operation and monitoring because they offer the perfect combination of operator devices and engineering software.

The Perfect Combination of SIMATIC HMI Panels and Engineering Software

The following criteria apply when selecting the right operating and monitoring device: It should be future-proof, flexible, integratable into higher-level networks and able to meet ever-increasing transparency and data provision requirements. This is where the three product lines of our SIMATIC HMI Panels come into their own. As HMI hardware, these operator panels are perfect in combination with the appropriate HMI software for machine-oriented operation. This also applies to requirements beyond standard applications.
Basic HMI – Panel based

Basic HMI Panel based

Basic HMI – implementing simple HMI tasks cost-effectively

In simple applications with a limited quantity scale, value for money counts in addition to fast and intuitive operation. Devices in the Basic HMI Panel based series are recommended in this case.
They include the following features:
  • Brilliant display quality and high-power visualization make even the operation of simple machines and equipment much easier thanks to their graphic user interface
  • Turnkey and flexible solutions save you valuable time during installation and engineering
  • The SIMATIC Operator Panels can be easily configured with the WinCC Basic Engineering Software – an attractively priced subset of WinCC (TIA Portal)
Advanced HMI – Panel based

Advanced HMI Panel based

Advanced HMI Panel based – perform challenging HMI tasks effortlessly

If you are looking for a panel-based solution for more demanding applications with larger quantity scales, opt for Advanced HMI.
As a user, you benefit from:
  • Excellent functionality and a wide range of devices and applications, optionally with key or touch operation
  • Stationary as well as mobile solutions
  • Convenient configuration by employing WinCC Comfort (or higher) with a Runtime Module pre-installed on the HMI operator device.
Advanced HMI – PC-based

Advanced HMI PC-based

Advanced HMI PC based – efficient performance of the most demanding and complex HMI tasks

If production places particularly high demands on the quantity and type of information that must be processed and documented, a PC-based system is recommended.
They include the following features:
  • Appropriate options for sufficient storage space, processing power, and data connectivity 
  • The user can either opt for a centralized solution, in which the visualization and PC are a single unit, or for a decentralized solution with an industrial monitor or thin client 
  • No matter which option you choose, SIMATIC HMI Operator Panels are also available for special environmental conditions

SIMATIC HMI Operator Devices – added value for your industry

Machine-oriented operation and monitoring is more than a wide range of HMI hardware of different sizes and operating philosophies. The concept of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) as well as the complete digitalization of the company are evident at the interface between man and machine or operator and process. SIMATIC HMI Panels offers a solution portfolio that combines all the added values of TIA for greater productivity, efficiency and usability. The WinCC configuration software in the TIA Portal provides exactly the functionality you need for your automation solution.

Added values included

Machine level visualization is much more than just a broad offer of panel hardware with different sizes and operating elements. Totally Integrated Automation and the idea of complete digitalization of the whole enterprise is demonstrated most obvious at the interface of man and machine or operator and process. SIMATIC HMI offers a solution portfolio that includes all the benefits of TIA, providing productivity, efficiency and usability.
