Panels

The SIMATIC HMI panel family: Efficient operation and monitoring

 

A high protection class, electromagnetic compatibility, and extremely shake-proof — every SIMATIC HMI keypad or touch panel is ideally suited to machine-oriented use in harsh industrial environments. A special highlight is that every keypad or touch panel in the SIMATIC HMI panel family from Siemens can be configured with a single software tool, fully scalable to match the performance class.

Series 70

 
 

The SIMATIC Panels of the 70 Series are the low-cost starter devices in the range of operator panels with graphical capability. They are ideally suited to small-scale HMI tasks.
The pixel-graphics display can be used for the graphical display of the processes using, for example, bitmaps or bar charts. The font size can be varied to achieve excellent readability even at a distance. Graphics can be used instead of text for labeling the function keys. This makes intuitive operator interfaces possible and saves on translation overhead.
As form factor, you can choose among the especially compact OP73 with a 3 inch display that is mounting compatible to the former Text Panel OP3 and the two versions of the OP 77 with their 4.5 inch display which are the successors of well proven OP7.
The OP 73 and OP 77A can be connected to SIMATIC S7 controllers. The OP 77B features drivers for interfacing to arange of different controllers. The necessary interfaces are already onboard.
SIMATIC OP 73/OP 77A and OP 77B are members of a complete and integrated SIMATIC HMI family of panels that can be configured with the engineering software SIMATIC WinCC flexible. Even the low-cost WinCC flexible Compact package can be used.
If you know the precise quantity structure of your HMI application, you can determine the right device for your task using the HMI selection help (link at the right); where applicable, the available performance reserves are also displayed.
For all of the devices, SIMATIC HMI offers starter packages at a considerable price advantage compared to the prices of the individual components

Series 170

 

Convincing functionality in the compact class and integrated graphics capability distinguish the devices of the 170 series. The spectrum of the devices ranges from the price-optimized Touch Panel TP 177A with 6inch blue-scale display for SIMATIC S7 PLCs to the PROFINET-enabled 6 inch color TP/OP 177B DP/PN devices
As form factor, you can choose among the especially compact TP 177B 4 inch, the TP 177A – which can also be installed in portrait (upright) orientation – and the traditional 6 inch Touch Panel TP 177B or the Operator Panel OP 177B with full keyboard. For every operating philosophy, the right device can be found within the 170 series.
If you know the precise quantity structure of your HMI application, you can determine the right device for your task using the HMI selection help (link at the right); where applicable, the available performance reserves are also displayed.
For many of the devices, SIMATIC HMI offers starter packages at a considerable price advantage compared to the prices of the individual components.

SIMATIC TP 177B 4 inch widescreen
Description
The new TP 177B 4” Widescreen completes the 170 series of the SIMATIC panels at the lower end. However, this only applies to the size and the price – in terms of functionality, performance and operator ergonomics, the device does not rank at the lower end of the product family.
