A set of 19-in. widescreen Flat Panels and Panel PCs with all-round IP65 protection are the latest addition to the Siemens glass-front portfolio. Fitted with a rugged aluminum enclosure, the new devices are designed especially for use at the machine level in harsh industrial environments and can be mounted either from the top or the bottom on a stand or supporting arm system.
Simatic IFP1900 PRO Flat Panels and Simatic IPC477D PRO Panel PCs have crystal-clear, scratchproof, 100% glass fronts that are highly resistant to chemicals. Highlights include a special industrial anti-glare surface, excellent legibility even at large viewing angles thanks to the high image resolution and brightness, and the automatic detection of inadvertent touching or operation, for example, caused by catching the screen with the ball of the hand or the buildup of dirt on the panel surface. Projected-capacitive touch technology (PCT) enables single and multitouch or gesture-based operation, even when wearing thin protective gloves, and images can be panned, zoomed, or hidden components shown both intuitively and quickly.
