Mobile Panels 2nd GenerationOverview
The next level handheld HMI – SIMATIC HMI Mobile Panels 2nd generation
SIMATIC HMI Mobile Panels 2nd generation now offer even more performance, flexibility, convenience and quality – making mobile operation and monitoring even safer and more efficient.
Power and safety in your hands
Available with either a 7 or 9 inch display and wired PROFINET connection, SIMATIC HMI Mobile Panels 2nd generation transfer the functionality and performance of SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels to mobile control units. Users benefit from more flexibility and convenience. Featuring16:9 aspect ratios and 16 million colors, the brilliant widescreen display provides clear, detail-rich visualizations, even of complex process and plant images.
The WinCC engineering tool in the TIA Portal with the new and innovative style editor ensures efficient configuration and optimal control within the corporate design. Also, the unique illuminated emergency STOP button, three-step enabling switch and flexible analysis options of the safety elements enable individual control unit integration within the safety architecture.
As such, they are ideally suited for small machines with small footprints. The compact connection box is easily mounted directly onto the control cabinet.
Brilliant widescreen display
With a 16:9 aspect ratio, the display offers a bright, crisp, detail-rich view. 16 million colors and approximately 40% more display area allow for clear visualization of even complex operating screens and graphs. Dimmable up to 100%, the display’s brightness can be adjusted for all types of environments.
The Mobile Panels of the 2nd generation have the same aspect ratio and resolution as the Comfort Panels. With the WinCC engineering tool of the TIA Portal, operating screens are easily configured both for stationary as well as mobile applications – or adopted with the push of a button. For TIA Portal configuration, users simply need to select the new Mobile Panel. The configuration can then be expanded with specific functions for mobile utilization. The new style editor offers an additional advantage, allowing you to simply integrate your corporate design with the control unit for central management.
Unique safety solution
The device variant with the emergency STOP button at the top and enabling switch in the rear provides flexible safety solution configuration. Only when the emergency STOP button is integrated with the safety circuit via the connection box is it activated and lights up red. The new device supports the analysis of safety elements using permanently wired safety relays (e.g. SIRIUS), fail-safe I/Os (e.g. SIMATIC ET 200) as well as PROFIsafe with fail-safe controllers of the SIMATIC S7 family (e.g. SIMATIC S7-1500F).
Compact connection options
The new compact connection box requires only a third of the space of conventional connection boxes. It is easily mounted to the outside of the control cabinet and wired completely on the inside. The box can be placed anywhere on the machine or in the plant, allowing for ideal positioning of the Mobile Panel connections for the user.
