Maximum ease of use thanks to multi-touch technology
High performance capacity, even for challenging visualisations
Available in sizes ranging from 7.0 to 21.5 inches
Razor-sharp, optimal readability
Safety for machines and systems
With the new SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort operating panels, Siemens presents improved possibilities with regard to communication with machines and systems. The WinCC Unified programming software uses the latest technologies to maximise the efficiency and performance in process visualisation. It therefore not only offers an optimised user experience, but also increased flexibility and scaleability, with a view to fulfilling growing requirements in the area of automation. With an intuitive user interface and powerful functions, the panels enable the precise and efficient control of processes
The SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort operating panels are available in sizes ranging from 7 to 21.5 inches. Here, the size the users chooses has no impact on the functional scope of the panel, since all sizes offer the same number of hardware interfaces and functions. The selection simply comes down to which screen size best meets your respective requirements. As such, there is no need for compromises, and the panels can adapt to the spatial requirements at the place of use.

Performance capacity has once again been significantly increased in comparison to older models. The system limits have been at least doubled and in some cases even tripled. This now makes it possible to quickly and simple run even much more complex applications on a single panel system.
As such, even complex and challenging visualisations can be realised with very little effort!

With the new panels, Siemens introduces the next generation of visualisation technologies, with the SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort Panels offering numerous advantages. For, alongside technologically advanced functions, the focus here is on maximum comfort, razor-sharp contrast, and optimal readability.
The capacitive multi-touch technology is setting new standards in terms of intuitive operation. Inspired by the best properties of modern touchscreen devices, it makes handling simpler and more convenient than ever before. This makes communication with machines and applications fast and efficient, thus allowing you to focus on implementation. Sluggish control is a thing of the past.
The safety of machines and systems plays an important role for decision-makers. The proprietary operating system upon which SIMATEC Industrial OS is based ensures maximum security. In so doing, it enables full control by facilitating the deactivation or uninstallation of unnecessary interfaces and system applications in a manner that is fully tailored towards existing requirements.
In order to keep the software up to date and guarantee maximum data security, security updates for the firmware are made available in the TIA portal and via the SIMATIC Automation Tool. Updates can thus be downloaded directly onto the device and installed. This helps keep the software version up to date in the long term and supports the security of systems and applications.

With these panels, comfort is not a word that is used lightly. For comfort and intuitive operation formed such a central role during the development of the latest generation of SIMATIC panels that they even bear the word Comfort in their name.
Of course, Siemens knows that industrial working environments are subject to special requirements. Therefore, safe operation with standard work gloves has already been thoroughly considered. The intelligent software also supports the detection of operating areas and ensures that no settings are accidentally changed or machine commands unintentionally issued, e.g. when resting your wrists on the panel.
The revolutionary WinCC Unified programming software in the TIA portal from Siemens has also undergone an upgrade. It also enables the creation of components that can be used both on PC systems and on the SIMATIC HMI Unified Comfort Panels, as part of the WinCC Unified systems. This does away with time-consuming work steps when replicating already-created components and project-planning need only be performed once.
In addition, the software has been especially developed to handle large quantities of data. For the use of an increasing number of devices and larger data quantities, as well as the need to make this data available to both internal and external IT departments, poses a major challenge for many companies. As an integration platform between these platforms, WinCC Unified serves as the ideal interface.
