SIEMENS SIMATIC HMI | SIMATIC MP 377 INOX Devices

SIMATIC MP 377 INOX Overview

  • Multi Panels (MP) are deployed on-site – like Operator Panels – for machine operation and monitoring
  • Their functionality can be expanded by installing additional Windows CE applications (Multi Panel and Panel options)
  • SIMATIC MP 377 INOX devices on the basis of Windows CE combine the rugged construction of Operator Panels with the flexibility of PCs
  • PLC functionality can be integrated directly into the MP 377 platform with Option
  • Pixel graphics 15″ TFT display, color (64k colors)
  • Touch screen (analog/resistive)
  • The MP 377 INOX is available with a stainless steel front (DIN EN 1672-2). These models expand the application field of the Multi Panels 377 for specific uses, environmental conditions and for specific industries (e.g. food & beverage industry).
  • All interfaces, e.g. MPI, PROFIBUS DP, USB, PROFINET (Ethernet TCP/IP), are on-board

    • CF Card slot and SD/Multimedia Card slot for language expansions, backup/restore
    • Ethernet (TCP/IP) for central data and project administration, and control interfacing to SIMATIC S7 possible
    • Standard Windows storage formats (CSV) for archives and recipes permits further processing using standard tools (e.g. MS Excel)

Application

The Multi Panels SIMATIC MP 377 INOX can be used wherever machines and systems are operated and monitored directly on-site – whether in production, process or building automation. These are used in the most popular branches and applications and can be expanded in their applications with the Multi Panel options, e.g. by displaying HTML documents via the Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer.

Windows CE meets the basic prerequisites for application in rough industrial environments. The diskless and fanless design enables implementation in areas where high vibration or dust load limits the operation of a PC. Short boot-up times make the Multi Panels ready for operation sooner as well.

The Multi Panel 15″ Touch with stainless steel front is designed for all industries that require such a front. The front can be disinfected and does not affect the quality e.g. of foods (assuming regular cleaning). Cleaning can be carried out using pressurized water with a jet of 100 l/min at 1 bar from a distance of 2.5 to 3 m. Liquids flow off automatically from the front.

Design

  • Compact design with low mounting depth
  • The front is resistant to various oils, greases and standard detergents
  • Degree of protection IP66K/NEMA 4x/NEMA 12 (front) or IP20 (rear)
  • Plug-in terminals for 24 V DC power supply
  • Interfaces:
    • RS 485/RS 422 interface for process connections (MPI, PROFIBUS DP up to 12 Mbit/s)
    • USB for mouse, keyboard, printer, barcode reader and downloading/uploading the configuration
    • Ethernet (TCP/IP) for exchanging data with a higher-level PC, connection of a network printer and downloading/uploading the configuration; a control link to SIMATIC S7 is possible
  • Slot for CompactFlash card (CF card)
  • Slot for SD/Multimedia Card
  • Retentive memory for WinAC MP 377 data (data, timers, counters and bit memories)
