SIMATIC Panels have been proving their value in many different applications in all industrial sectors for many years now. Their innovative power is undiminished here.
With SIMATIC Panels, you have absolute control over even the most complex processes, which increases the availability and productivity of your plant. SIMATIC Panels provide the interface between man and machine and offer maximum transparency.
The product range includes versions for all industrial applications: from a simple operator keypads to mobile and stationary panels and all the way to the flexible Multi Panel. Devices with PROFINET connection are used for solutions that utilize the Industrial Ethernet standard for automation. Devices with complete IP65 protection can be located on supporting arms or pedestals – wherever is best for the operator.
Rugged for use at the machine level
With IP65/NEMA 4 degree of protection on the front side, high EMC and extreme vibration resistance, the SIMATIC Operator Panels are ideally suited for use at the machine level in harsh industrial environments. Approvals for many different sectors/ applications are the proof.
Selection of possible operating modes
