Universal high-end solution for the industry
With Simatic PC-Based Automation, our customers can easily expand SPS functionality to a high-performance level thanks to the complete integration of the PC world and S7 program with PC resources such as hardware or software.
Robust, innovative, and offering long-term availability, Simatic Industry PCs reflect Siemens’ high level of technological experience, for example in the patented hard disk suspension system. “Our rack PCs are equipped with a front fan system that generates an overpressure in the unit, thereby drawing in more air from the front than is vented out back. This prevents industrial dust from even entering into the housing,” explains Mathias Albrecht, Product Manager at Siemens Industry Industrial Automation Systems. “In addition, our PCs are very robust and thus suited for the requirements of industrial environments,” he continues. Additional software packages that ensure a low failure-probability round out Siemens’ complete portfolio. Siemens thus provides its customers with a fail-safe system for their production processes.
The Siemens solution for Simatic PC-Based Automation is supplemented by the universal wide-front concept, which is available for the Nanopanel PCs and Thin Clients. These stand out with their sturdy aluminum fronts that are ideally suited for industrial use. They also feature high-contrast monitors for an ultra-clear image display. “We also now have our Industrial Thin Clients that can be remotely installed away from PCs and the Industrial Flat Panels for distributed operating concepts, installable up to 30 meters away,” adds Stefan Link, a product manager for Simatic HMI IPC.
