Machine level visualization with SIMATIC HMI

Machine level visualization with SIMATIC HMI

The perfect combination of Operator Devices and Engineering Software

Equipment for monitoring and operator control is needed wherever people have to work with machinery and plants performing tasks A to Z. It is not difficult to find the right device for the specific task. The challenge is to find a solution that is future-proof and flexible, that can be integrated into higher-level networks, and that can also meet the ever-increasing demands for transparency and data provision. It's the interplay of excellent hardware even for requirements beyond standard applications and the HMI Software, Engineering SW as well as Runtime SW, that makes SIMATIC HMI the solution provider of your choice when you are looking for machine level HMI.

Basic HMI - Panel based

Basic HMI - Panel based

Basic HMI - Simple visualization tasks economically realized

Basic HMI is recommended for simple applications with a limited quantity scale and where the price-performance ratio is important in addition to a fast and intuitive operation.
The devices offer a brilliant display quality and high-power visualization. This significantly facilitates the operation even of simple machines and equipment. Through turnkey and flexible solutions, you also save valuable time during installation and engineering.
Devices can be easily configured using the WinCC Basic Engineering Software, a budget priced subset of WinCC (TIA Portal).

Advanced HMI - Panel based

Advanced HMI - Panel based - Demanding tasks realized with a high level of convenience

If you are looking for a panel-based solution for more demanding applications with larger quantity scales, make a decision for Advanced HMI.

The user benefits from excellent functionality and a wide range of devices and applications, with key or touch operation. Both stationary and mobile solutions are available.

The Panels can be coveniently configured by employing WinCC Comfort or higher with a Runtime Module already pre-installed on the device.

Advanced HMI - PC-based

Advanced HMI - PC-based - Efficient realization of even 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. It offers the 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 a thin client. No matter which option you choose, there are devices available for special envioronmental conditions as well.
