IP65- and IP66-protected HMI devices for monitoring and control

By Chemical Engineering |

Siemens

Siemens

This company has extended its family of all-around protected HMI (human-machine interface) devices for machine-related, cabinet-free visualization and automation. Simatic Thin Client PRO operator terminals (photo) with 15-, 19- and 22-in. screen sizes and IP65 degree of protection are new to the range. Like all devices in the PRO series, the new Thin Client products can be extended with mountable components. New expansion options are operator controls with USB interfaces and an extension box with adjustable handles for easy operation of the panels on the machine. The IP66-protected Simatic HMI Thin Client Ex OG is the new addition to the series of Ex HMI devices. It can be used in 1/21 and 2/22 zones without any special measures, such as elaborate enclosures or additional certifications. — Siemens AG, Munich, Germany
