For powerful, PC-based HMI applications, the technology of the improved E generation of industrial Panel PCs is installed in the Simatic IPC477E PRO Panel PC – with 6th generation Intel Core i processor and modern Celeron and Xeon processors. The new Panel PC has a wide range of interfaces, such as 3x Gigabit Ethernet, 4x USB 3.0 and optional 2x COM to facilitate flexible use. Extension units –mountable components – extend the operation of the all-round IP65-protected PRO devices. The 12 to 22-inch extension units, which consist of standard components such as basic device, extension components, mounting adapters, keyboard tray and an optional keyboard also available in IP65 stainless steel versions, allow tailor-made system solutions. They are characterized by easy mounting and commissioning, as well as user-friendly engineering, and can be easily adapted to meet individual customer requests. A large selection of control elements is also available: from indicator lights, selector and key switches, Emergency OFF mushroom pushbuttons, USB interface and RFID reader, all the way to a stainless-steel keyboard. The control elements are easily and quickly labeled with label holders and inscription plates, or inscription plates and lens assemblies. The extension unit is now also available in a fail-safe Profisafe version, in addition to the conventionally hard-wired and bus-capable Profinet version.
