SIEMENS Key Panels SIMATIC HMI KP8/KP8F/KP32F

SIMATIC HMI Key Panels
  • Optimum operability thanks to large mechanical keys and multi-colored LED backlighting (daylight readable)
  • Over 60% time savings for wiring and installation (Plug&Play)
  • More than 30% savings in material costs compared to conventional keypad operator panels
  • 2 PROFINET ports (incl. switch) already integrated for setting up line and ring topologies
  • Freely configurable digital I/Os on the rear for connecting key-operated switches, indicator lamps, etc.
  • Connection of fail-safe emergency stop buttons or other fail-safe signals with KP8F and KP32F (in SIL2 or SIL3)
  • Functionally compatible with all standard PROFINET master CPUs, also non-Siemens
  • KP8 and empty front design, also optimized for installation in IPC Extension Units in IP65
  • Maximum flexibility due to parameterization
  • Empty front design for standardized assembly of flexible operator panels

6AV3688-3XY38-3AX0
DESIGN BLANK FRONT KP8 APPEARANCE FOR EASY MOUNTING OF STANDARD 22.5 MM CONTROL ELEMENTS IDEAL FOR MODULAR OPERATING PANELS ALSO OPTIMIZED FOR MOUNTING IN EXTENTION UNITS FOR PRO DEVICES

Benefits

  • Less planning and assembly work than in the case of discrete components, thanks to the modular design
  • Savings in hardware costs: Distributed I/O, 2 PROFINET connections and I/Os are combined in one device
  • Keys and lamps can be labeled in IP65 using a standard printer (black and white or color)
  • High flexibility due to freely configurable colors, switch/button function and integrated diagnostics function
  • Any key color can be adapted dynamically to the process
  • Integrated standard inputs and outputs for actuators and sensors, and each pin can be used as input or output
  • Empty front designs can be used to reserve space for later system expansions and for easy mounting of standard 22.5 mm operator controls
  • Functions and design are optimally matched in the SIMATIC HMI spectrum, e.g. in PRO device extension units
  • SIL 2/3 safety with the “F” variants, e.g. emergency stop can be connected directly

Application

  • Ideally suited to most verticals (automotive, F&B to oil & gas) thanks to the smooth and rugged front, even in hazardous areas (see technical specifications)
  • For intuitive, fast and very easy operation with minimum wiring
  • Language-neutral feedback with multi-color LEDs in the keys, even readable in sunlight
  • Extensions possible when built-in, without the need for cutting tools
  • Special-purpose machine manufacturing benefits from the high degree of flexibility

Design

SIMATIC HMI Key Panel – Blank front design
  • Simple seamless installation with mounting clips
  • Rugged design, suitable for harsh industrial environments
  • Prepared for installation of 22.5 mm standard components
  • Easy installation, or retrofitting during operation, of standard 22.5 mm operator controls
SIMATIC HMI Key Panel – Basic functions
  • Smooth front, therefore easy to clean
  • Large mechanical illuminated pushbutton units can be programmed as switches or buttons
  • Loop-through 24 V DC power supply, no additional terminals required
  • Two PROFINET interfaces, perfect for line operation
  • Suitable for ring operation thanks to media redundancy protocol (MRP), normal running even when the PROFINET power supply cable is unplugged
  • Inputs and outputs on the rear, each pin can be used as an input or an output
  • The F variants are also equipped with SIL 2/3 inputs

SIMATIC HMI KP8 PN

  • 8 large mechanical illuminated pushbuttons with extremely good tactile feedback, thus also suitable for harsh industrial environments
  • 8 freely configurable digital I/Os
  • For standard CPUs

SIMATIC HMI KP8F PN

  • Additional digital fail-safe inputs for connecting single-channel or 1 x 2-channel sensors, such as emergency stop
  • For fail-safe CPUs

SIMATIC HMI KP32F PN

  • 32 large mechanical illuminated pushbuttons with extremely good tactile feedback, thus also suitable for harsh industrial environments
  • 16 freely configurable digital I/Os
  • Additional digital fail-safe inputs for connecting 4 x 1-channel or 2 x 2-channel sensors, such as emergency stop
  • For fail-safe and standard CPUs
