System overview

Brilliant, intelligent and practical

SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels are designed for implementation of high-performance visualization applications on the machine-level. High performance, functionality and numerous integrated interfaces offer the greatest convenience in high-end applications.

The SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels are the first choice for solving complex HMI applications.

They feature state-of-the-art technology, outstanding performance as well as integrated functionality and come in high quality aluminum fronts from size 7” or larger.

 

SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels are seamlessly integrated in the TIA Portal via WinCC. This innovative engineering framework represents the key to the full performance capacity of Totally Integrated Automation.

Brilliant displays in widescreen format

  • Up to 40% larger visualization area than conventional displays: Complex operating screens can also be clearly displayed and divided into sections for application control and application monitoring.
  • The high resolution, 16 million colors, and a wide viewing angle up to 170°, allow optimal readability and a detailed process display.
  • Minimized energy demand and maximized display service life: The brightness of the LED backlight can be dimmed by up to 100% to adapt to the lighting conditions of the application.
  • The Comfort Panels which were the first widescreen SIMATIC product family received the well-known iF product design award in 2012.

Intelligent

Energy efficiency due to PROFIenergy

  • PROFIenergy actively controls the current consumption of all automation components
  • Disconnection of individual loads or entire production units when they are not required
  • Coordinated switching ensures a high degree of plant reliability
  • Continuous investment protection through easy integration in existing standards


Maximum data security if power fails

  • In case of a power failure, Comfort Panels buffer sufficient energy to correctly terminate all active archives and to back up the data already archived in RDB format. This ensures the retention of all data in the archive in a cost-efficient manner and without the use of a maintenance-intensive battery.
  • To fully ensure the retention of individual, not yet archived data, the use of an uninterruptible power supply unit is recommended.

Precise diagnostics made easy

  • Increased plant availability
  • When connected to SIMATIC Controllers, diagnostic information can be read out directly via the Comfort Panel
  • Cost savings – no additional diagnostic hardware is required
     

Practical

Easy to operate

  • Intuitive, fast entries due to familiar and easy-to-operate operator control similar to that of a mobile phone keypad
  • Eased user guidance thanks to function keys with LEDs
  • Additional operating reliability through tactile feedback of all keys – for example important when working with gloves

 
More interfaces – less hardware costs

  • Easy integration in existing system structures and networks thanks to PROFIBUS and PROFINET standard interfaces
    - From 7“ device upwards: 2 PROFINET interfaces with integrated network switch
    - From 15“ upwards: Additional third PROFINET interface
  • Audio In/Audio Out interface for playback of sound files via integrated Media Player
  • Easy connection of external devices (printers, USB flash drives, mouse, keyboard, etc.) via 2 integrated USB host interfaces
     

Optimum convenience during commissioning and servicing

  • Simple download of projects via low-cost standard cables
  • All Ethernet settings can already be made during configuration
  • Continuously saved device image through automatic backup of all data on SD card
  • Simple transfer of panel data to replacement device: Replug SD card – confirm – get going

Comfort Panels Outdoor - Extremely flexible for every outdoor application

The SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels have been developed specifically for demanding HMI applications under extreme ambient conditions. This makes operation and monitoring extremely flexible – for every outdoor area.

 

Whether in the oil and gas industry, on ships or in refrigerated warehouses: SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels, with 7- or 15-inch daylight readable widescreen display, provide everything you need for outdoor operation and monitoring.

 

 

Flexible outdoor application through extremely robust design
The new SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels TP700 and TP1500 offer the same convenience as the familiar standard comfort devices in combination with extreme equipment properties for flexible outdoor application

 

  • Reliable operation in a wide temperature range from -30 °C to +60 °C, for example in refrigerated warehouses or in desert regions
  • High vibration and shock resistance, for example for use in vehicles or in the stamping machine and press sector
  • Panel front in IP66 for high degree of protection against dust and water penetration, for example for use in the mining industry or on ships
  • High UV resistance for long-term availability of function and optics, for example when used in mountain regions or close to the equator
  • Bonded display (as tough as laminated safety glass) for maximum protection against air humidity (90%), condensation and thermal stresses, for example for use in tropical zones

 

Safe operation and monitoring in extreme light conditions
Light conditions such as the change between day and night or bright sunlight can crucially affect safety when operating machines or monitoring processes in outdoor areas. With the new Comfort Outdoor Panels you can see what is currently running or being operated at all times, even in extreme light conditions. We’ve made this possible by endowing the front of the panel and the display with some outstanding properties:

  • Daylight readable display with automatic or manual dimming, for the right contrast and perfect vision
  • Dazzle-free display with no reflections and viewing angle up to 170° from all directions, for fatigue-free operation and monitoring
  • High-resolution widescreen display (16:9) with 16 million colors for pin-sharp visualization of complex operating screens and graphs

Application in any industry thanks to comprehensive certifications

SIMATIC HMI Comfort Outdoor Panels can be used with virtually no restriction in a wide range of different industrial sectors. Comprehensive certifications (in preparation), for example IEC-EX protection and marine, offer you flexible options for application in extreme areas:

  • Oil and gas production, transport and processing, biogas systems
  • Marine, shipbuilding, port facilities and cranes
  • Wind farms and solar parks, hydropower plants and sewage treatment plants
  • Deep-shaft and surface mining, quarries, gravel and sand pits
  • Cable railways, ice rinks and refrigerated warehouses
  • Vehicles and special machines in outdoor applications
