Operator interfaces in IP65 degree of protection

Fully enclosed HMI devices

The SIMATIC HMI PRO (PRO = protected) devices have been designed for mounting on a support arm/pedestal. Thanks to their rugged aluminum enclosures, the SIMATIC HMI PRO devices have all-round IP65 protection and are also suitable for use in harsh environments.
As far as functionality and technical specification are concerned the IP65 variants are equal to the corresponding standard devices.
The separation of HMI and control cabinet allows flexible design concepts. The new SIMATIC HMI PRO devices are used wherever the HMI device cannot be installed direct in the control cabinet due to restricted space, or whenever an operator unit is required direct at the machine.
The devices stand out not only due to their compact and appealing industrial design, but also due to their refined mechanical features. This enables the device to be connected to the support arm system optionally from above or below. A host of support arm systems from well-known manufacturers are supported here. The SIMATIC HMI PRO devices are also suitable for connection to systems in accordance with VESA 75 and VESA 100.

Due to the minimal mounting depth, it can also be used in confined spaces.



The flexible converter for positining tasks comprising extensive safety functions
In order to perform the highly complex applications in mechanical engineering and plant construction, machine axes must be quickly positioned in a convenient and exact manner. If you wish to get out the positioning task from the higher-level machine controller, the drive must have this function. This is exactly the task of the SINAMICS S110 with its integrated single positionier (EPos).
If you wish to use it as a speed axis, you can predefine setpoint values for the S110 via an analog input or fieldbus interface (Profibus, CAN, Profinet (available soon)). Furthermore, it can activate comprehensive integrated safety functions via on-board safety terminals without complex additional circuits.
As a modular single-axis drive with servo functionality, it covers the performance range from 120 W (1AC 230V) to 90 kW (3AC 400V). Preferably synchronous servo motors equipped with encoder, but also induction motors with/without encoder can be operated with SINAMICS S110.



SIMATIC S7-200 applications range from replacing relays and contactors to handling less complex automation tasks in standalone mode, in networks and within distributed configurations.
To save costs, the S7-200 is increasingly being employed in areas that previously required special electronics.
In addition to the comprehensive basic functionality of the five available CPUs a wide range of I/O and function modules provides solutions tailored to the customers requirements. (Siemens S7-200).



The SIMATIC S7-300 has been designed for innovative system solutions with the focus on manufacturing engineering, and as a universal automation system, it represents an optimal solution for applications in centralized and distributed configurations: The product range comprises 7 Standard CPUs, 6 Compact CPUs, 6 failsafe CPUs and 2 Technology CPUs. (Siemens S7-300) Highlights
The ability to integrate powerful CPUs with Industrial Ethernet/PROFINET interface, integrated technological functions, or fail-safe designs makes additional investments unnecessary.
The S7-300 can be set up in a modular configuration without the need for slot rules for I/O modules. There is a wide range of modules available both for the centralized and the distributed configuration with ET 200M.
The Micro Memory Card as a data and program memory makes a backup battery superfluous, and with it, part of the maintenance costs. In addition, an associated project, including symbols and comments, can be stored on this memory card to facilitate service calls.
The Micro Memory Card also enables simple program or firmware updates. The Micro Memory Card can be used during operation for storing and accessing data, e.g. for measured value archiving or recipe processing.
In addition to standard automation, safety technology and motion control can also be integrated in an S7-300.
Many of the S7-300 components are also available in a SIPLUS version for external environmental conditions, e.g. extended temperature range (-25 to +60 Deg C) and for use where there is aggressive atmosphere/condensation.

The S7-400 is especially suitable for data-intensive tasks in the process industry. High processing speeds and deterministic response times guarantee short machine cycle times on high-speed machines in the manufacturing industry. The high-speed backplane bus of S7-400 ensures efficient linking of central I/O modules.
The S7-400 is used preferably to coordinate overall plants and to control lower-level communications lines with slave stations; this is guaranteed by the high communication power and the integral interfaces.
The power of the S7-400 is scalable thanks to a graded range of CPUs; the capacity for I/O is almost unlimited.
The power reserves of the CPUs enable new functions to be integrated without further hardware investment, e.g. processing of quality data, user-friendly diagnosis, integration into higher-level MES solutions or high-speed communication via bus systems.
The S7-400 can be structured in a modular way without any slot rules; there is a widely varied range of modules available both for centralized configurations and distributed structures.
The configuration of the distributed I/O of the S7-400 can be modified during operation. In addition signal modules can be removed and inserted while live (hot swapping). This makes it very easy to expand the system or replace modules in the event of a fault.
The storage of the complete project data including symbols and comments on the CPU simplifies service and maintenance calls
Safety technology and standard automation can be integrated into an S7-400 controller; the plant availability can be increased by the redundant set-up of the S7-400.
Many of the S7-400 components are also available in a SIPLUS version for external environmental conditions, e.g. extended temperature range (-25 to +60 Deg C) and for use where there is aggressive atmosphere/condensation.
