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.
