Differences in electrical potential can develop between spatially separated plant
components. Such electrical potential differences can lead to high equalizing currents over
the data cables and therefore to the destruction of their interfaces. Equalizing currents can
develop if the cable shielding is terminated at both ends and grounded to different plant
parts.
Differences in potential may develop when a system is connected to different mains
supplies.
General requirements for equipotential bonding
Differences in potential must be reduced by means of equipotential bonding in order to
ensure trouble-free operation of the relevant components of the electronic system. The
following must therefore be observed when installing the equipotential bonding circuit:
● The effectiveness of equipotential bonding increases as the impedance of the
equipotential bonding conductor decreases or as its cross-section increases.
● If two plant parts are interconnected by means of shielded data cables and their shielding
is bonded at both ends to the grounding/protective conductor, the impedance of the
additionally installed equipotential bonding cable must not exceed 10% of the shielding
impedance.
● The cross-section of an equipotential bonding conductor must be capable of handling the
maximum equalizing current. Experience has shown that equipotential bonding
conductors with a minimum cross-section of 16 mm² are the best.
● Use equipotential bonding conductors made of copper or galvanized steel. Establish a
large surface contact between the equipotential bonding conductors and the
grounding/protective conductor and protect these from corrosion.
● Use a suitable cable clip to clamp the shield of the data cable flush to the equipotential
bonding rail. Keep the length of cable between the HMI device and the equipotential
bonding rail as short as possible.
● Route the equipotential bonding conductor and data cables in parallel and with minimum
clearance between these.

Introduction
The HMI devices use the following memory types:
● Internal memory
● Memory card
● System memory card
You can also connect a USB mass storage device to the USB port.
Internal memory
The following data is saved in the internal memory:
● Operating system
● Project file
● License keys
● User administration
● Recipes*)
*) To save recipes in the internal memory, select "\Flash\" as the path in WinCC.
Note
Cyclic write access to the internal memory is not allowed
Cyclic write access to internal memory is not allowed, because this reduces the service life
of internal memory and of the HMI device.
To prolong the service life of your device, you should preferably use external memory cards
to store and log data, for example the SIMATIC HMI Memory Card.
Note
Number of allowed files in the root directory of the internal memory
The number of files in the root directory is limited to 256. The number of files is not limited in
the subdirectories of the internal memory.

Memory card
The following data are saved on the memory card:
● Logs
● Backups
● Recipes*)
*) To save recipes on the memory card, select "\StorageCard SD\" as the path in WinCC.
You can use commercially available memory cards with the "SD(IO / HC)" or "MMC" format.
For data consistency reasons, Siemens recommends the use of the SIMATIC HMI Memory
Card as the memory card, see Accessories (Page 21).
Note
Data consistency
When the HMI device is switched off, consistency of the stored data is ensured only for the
SIMATIC HMI Memory Card ≥ 2 GB.
With commercially available memory cards, switching off the device may result in the loss of
saved data, for example, due to a power failure.
The consistency of data stored in archives is only guaranteed if you use RDB format.
System memory card
The system memory map is part of the service concept of the HMI devices. If you enable the
service concept, all data from the internal memory of the HMI device is transferred to the
system memory card. If the HMI device fails, you insert the system's memory card into the
replacement unit. This way you reduce your system downtimes to a minimum.
The system memory card is not visible in the user interface of the HMI device and it cannot
be used for data storage. In order for the HMI device to recognize the system memory card,
you have to insert the system memory card into the slot designed for it.
Note
Format of the system memory card
Only a SIMATIC HMI Memory Card ≥ 2 GB may be used as a system memory card. All other
memory cards are not recognized as system memory card by the HMI device.

Screen contents may occasionally leave a burn-in effect in the background if they appear
too long.
This burn-in effect will automatically disappear after a certain amount of time if the
screensaver is activated, for example. The longer the same content is displayed on the
screen, the longer it will take for the burn-in effect to disappear.
Generally, you should always activate the screen saver.
The "Blank Screen" setting is used to switch off backlighting.
Requirement
The Control Panel is open.
Procedure
Proceed as follows:
1. Open the "Screensaver" dialog with the ScreenSaver icon.
2. Enter the number of minutes before backlighting is to be reduced and the screen saver is
to be activated.
Value range in minutes: 5 to 71582. "0" disables the feature.

Overview of network operation
Introduction
You can connect the HMI device to a PROFINET network via the Ethernet port.
NOTICE
The HMI device only has client functionality in the PC network. This means that users can
access files of a node with TCP/IP server functionality from the HMI device via the network.
However, you cannot, for example, access files of the HMI device from a PC via the
network.
Note
Information on communication using SIMATIC S7 via PROFINET is provided in the online
help of WinCC.
The connection to a network offers, for example, the following options:
● Printing via a network printer
● Saving, exporting and importing of recipe data records on or from a server
● Setting up of alarm and data archives
● Transferring a project
● Saving data
Addressing
Within a PROFINET network, computers are usually addressed using computer names.
These device names are translated from a DNS or WINS server to TCP/IP addresses. This
is why a DNS or WINS server is needed for addressing via computer names when the HMI
device is in a PROFINET network.
The corresponding servers are generally available in PROFINET networks.
Note
The use of TCP/IP addresses to address PCs is not supported by the operating system.
Consult your network administrator if you have questions in this regard

Printing via a network printer
The HMI device's operating system does not support line by line alarm logging via a network
printer. All other printing functions, for example, hardcopy or logs, are available without
restriction via the network.
Preparation
Before beginning the configuration, request the following network parameters from your
network administrator.
● Does the network use DHCP for dynamic assignment of network addresses?
If not, get a new TCP/IP network address for the HMI device.
● Which TCP/IP address does the default gateway have?
● If a DNS network is used, what are the addresses of the name server?
● If a WINS network is used, what are the addresses of the name server?
General procedure for configuring the network
The HMI device must be configured prior to network operation. The configuration is basically
divided into the following steps:
Proceed as follows:
1. Enter the device name of the HMI device.
2. Configure the network address.
3. Set the logon information.
4. Save the settings.
Alternatively, you can configure the network address in the "Devices & Networks" editor in
WinCC. You can find more information on this topic in the online help of WinCC.

Overview
Configuration phase
A project – the process image of the working process – is produced during configuration to
visualize automated working processes. The process displays for the project contain
displays for values and alarms which provide information about process statuses. The
process control phase follows the configuration phase.
Process control phase
The project must be transferred to the HMI device if it is to be used in process control.
Another precondition for process control is that the HMI device is connected online to a
controller. Current working processes - operating and observing - can then be subject to
process control.
Transferring the project to the HMI device
You can transfer a project to an HMI device as follows:
● Transfer from the configuring PC
● Restore from a PC using ProSave
In this case, an archived project is transferred from a PC to the HMI device. The
configuration software need not be installed on this PC.
● Insert a prepared system memory card from an identical HMI device
Additional information is available in "Enabling the service concept (Page 62)".
● Recovery from an external storage medium from an identical HMI device (Restore)
Commissioning and recommissioning
Initial and re-start-ups differ in the following respects:
● When the HMI device is commissioned there is no project at first.
The HMI device is also in this state after the operating system has been updated.
● When recommissioning, any project already on the HMI device is replaced.

Operating modes
The HMI device may be in the following operating modes:
● Offline
● Online
● Transfer
Changing the operating mode
The configuration engineer must have configured an appropriate operating element to allow
a change of the operating mode on the HMI device during ongoing operation.
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation
"Offline" operating mode
In this mode, there is no communication between the HMI device and PLC. Although the
HMI device can be operated, it cannot exchange data with the PLC.
"Online" operating mode
In this mode, the HMI device and PLC communicate. You can operate the plant on the HMI
device according to your system configuration.
"Transfer" mode
In this mode, you can transfer a project from the configuring PC to the HMI device or backup
and restore HMI device data, for example.
The following options are available for setting "Transfer" mode on the HMI device:
● When the HMI device starts up
Start "Transfer" mode manually in the HMI device Loader.
● During ongoing operation
Start the "Transfer" mode manually within the project using an operating element. The
HMI device toggles to "Transfer" mode when automatic mode is set and a transfer is
initiated on the configuring PC.

Setting transfer mode
Introduction
You can start the "Transfer" mode manually or automatically on the HMI device.
If the automatic transfer is enabled, the HMI device automatically switches to "Transfer"
mode when the following event occurs during runtime: You start project transfer on the
connected configuring PC.
Note
With automatic transfer, the HMI device only switches to "Transfer" mode when the project is
running on the HMI device.
Automatic transfer is particularly suited for the test phase of a new project since transfer is
completed without interfering with the HMI device.
NOTICE
If automatic transfer is activated on the HMI device and a transfer is initiated on the
configuring PC, the project currently running is automatically stopped. The HMI device then
automatically switches to "Transfer" mode.
After the commissioning phase, deactivate the automatic transfer so that the HMI device
cannot be inadvertently switched to transfer mode. The transfer mode can trigger
unintentional reactions in the plant.
You can issue a password in the Control Panel to restrict access to the transfer settings
and thus avoid unauthorized modifications.
Requirement
● The Control Panel is open.
● The Runtime software is terminated.

Overview
Operator input options
The hardware of the HMI device determines which of the following operator control options
are available:
● Touch screen
The operating elements shown in the dialogs are touch-sensitive. Touch objects are
basically operated in the same way as mechanical keys. You activate operating elements
by touching them with your finger. To double-click them, touch an operating element
twice in succession.
● HMI device keyboard
The operating elements shown in the screens are selected and operated using the keys
of the HMI device.
● External keyboard, connected via USB
● External mouse, connected via USB
CAUTION
Do not use pointed or sharp objects to operate the touch screen. Otherwise, you can
damage the plastic membrane of the touch screen.
The following provides instructions for operating a project with the touch screen and the
keyboard.
Operating a project with an external keyboard
An external keyboard can be used to operate a project in exactly the same way as with the
HMI keyboard or screen keyboard.
Note
The function keys of the external keyboard are disabled.
Operating a project with an external mouse
The project can be operated with an external mouse in exactly the same way as with the
HMI touch screen. Click the described operating elements with the mouse.

6.1 Overview
Unintentional actions
CAUTION
Do not carry out several operations simultaneously. You may otherwise trigger
unintentional actions.
 With touch control:
Always touch only one operating element on the screen
 With key control:
Do not press more than two function keys simultaneously.
Exception: The keyboard shortcut <CTRL+ALT+DEL> can also be used with the system
keys. Note that the "Lock Task Switching" option can be activated in the project in the
Runtime settings of the HMI device.
Observing the plant documentation
Some operations with the project may require in-depth knowledge about the specific plant on
the part of the operator. If you use jog mode, for example, proceed with care. Refer to your
plant documentation to find any additional information on this topic.
Operation feedback from operating elements
The HMI device provides operation feedback as soon as it detects that an operating element
has been selected. This operation feedback is independent of any communication with the
PLC. Therefore, this operation feedback does not indicate whether the relevant action is
actually executed or not.
Optical feedback from operating elements
The operating element receives the focus and is selected. The configuration engineer can
also configure the selection of an operating element so that it deviates from the standard.
Refer to your plant documentation to find any additional information on this topic.
Comfort Panels
154
Operating Instructions, 03/2012, A5E03404994-02
Operating a project
6.1 Overview
The type of optical feedback depends on the operating element:
● Buttons
The HMI device generates different views for the "Pressed" and "Unpressed" states,
provided the configuration engineer has configured a 3D effect:
– "Pressed" state:
– "Unpressed" state:
The configuration engineer determines the appearance of a selected field, for example,
line width and color for the focus.
● Invisible buttons
By default, invisible buttons are not displayed as pressed when they are touched. No
optical operation feedback is provided in this case.
The configuration engineer may, however, configure invisible buttons so that their outline
appears as lines when touched. This outline remains visible until you enable another
operating element.
● I/O fields
When you select an I/O field, the content of the I/O field is displayed against a colored
background. With touch operation, a screen keyboard opens for the entering of values.
Acoustic feedback from operating elements
An acoustic signal is generated as soon as the HMI device detects that the touch screen has
been touched or a key has been pressed, . You can activate or deactivate this acoustic
operation feedback.
Note
The acoustic feedback is only possible if you interact with the project directly on the touch
screen or press one of the keys of the HMI device. If you use an external mouse or keyboard
for interaction, no acoustic signal is issued.
Acoustic feedback does not mean that the action has been performed.
Acoustic signal for inadvertent operations
If you try to enter an invalid character, the HMI device issues an acoustic signal in
accordance with the setting.

6.2 Function keys
6.2
Function keys
Function keys
Function key assignment is defined during configuration. The configuration engineer can
assign function keys globally and locally.
Function keys are available only on key HMI devices.
Function keys with global function assignment
A globally assigned function key always triggers the same action on the HMI device or in the
PLC irrespective of the screen displayed. Such an action could be, for example, the
activation of a screen or the closure of an alarm window.
Function keys with local function assignment
A function key with local function assignment is screen-specific and is therefore only
effective within the active screen.
The function assigned locally to a function key can vary from screen to screen.
The function key of a screen can be assigned one function only, either a global or local one.
The local assignment function takes priority over the global setting.
The configuration engineer can assign function keys in such a way that you can manipulate
operating elements with function keys, for example, the alarm view, trend view, recipe view
or status/force.
6.3
Direct keys
Introduction
Direct keys on the HMI device are used to set bits in the I/O area of a SIMATIC S7.
Direct keys enable operations with short reaction times that are, for example, a jog mode
requirement.
NOTICE
Direct keys are still active when the HMI device is in "offline" mode.
NOTICE
If you operate a function key with direct key functionality in a running project, the direct key
function is always executed, independent of the current screen contents.
Note
You can only use direct keys when there is a connection via PROFIBUS DP or
PROFINET IO.
Direct keys result in additional basic load on the HMI device.

6.4 Setting the project language
Direct keys
The following objects can be configured as a direct key:
● Buttons
● Function keys
You can also define image numbers in the case of HMI devices with touch operation. In this
way, the configuration engineer can configure the direct keys on an image-specific basis.
You can find detailed information on configuring direct keys in the online help for WinCC
under "Visualizing processes > Communicating with controllers".
6.4
Setting the project language
Introduction
The HMI device supports multilingual projects. You must have configured a corresponding
operating element which lets you change the language setting on the HMI device during
runtime.
The project always starts with the language set in the previous session.
Requirements
● The required language for the project must be available on the HMI device.
● The language switching function must be logically linked to a configured operating
element such as a button.
Selecting a language
You can change project languages at any time. Language-specific objects are immediately
output to the screen in the new language when you switch languages.
The following options are available for switching the language:
● A configured operating element switches from one language to the next in a list
● A configured operating element directly sets the desired language
Further information on this may be available in your plant documentation

Entering hexadecimal values
If the configuration engineer has configured the I/O field as "Hexadecimal display", the letters
"A" to "F" are available in addition to the numbers.
With touch devices, the alphanumeric screen keyboard appears in this case. The keys "G" to
"Z" are not used. When you press the keys, a beep is emitted.
Limit test of numeric values
Tags can be assigned limits. If you enter a value outside these limits it will not be accepted,
for example "80" is rejected if the configured limit is "78". When an alarm window is
configured, a system alarm is generated on the HMI device. Regardless of this, the original
value is displayed again.
Decimal places for numeric values
The configuration engineer can specify the number of decimal places for a numerical text
box. The number of decimal places is checked when you enter a value in this type of I/O
field.
● Decimal places in excess of the limit are ignored.
● Empty decimal places are filled with "0".

ESD guideline
What does ESD mean?
An electronic module is equipped with highly integrated components. Due to their design,
electronic components are highly sensitive to overvoltage and thus to the discharge of static
electricity. Such electronic components or modules are labeled as electrostatic sensitive
devices.
The following abbreviations are commonly used for electrostatic sensitive devices:
● ESD – Electrostatic sensitive device
● ESD – Electrostatic Sensitive Device as a common international designation
Electrostatic sensitive devices can be labeled with an appropriate symbol.
CAUTION
Damage to ESD from touch
Electrostatic sensitive devices, ESD, can be destroyed by voltages which are far below the
human perception limit. If you touch a component or electrical connections of a module
without discharging any electrostatic energy, these voltages may arise.
The damage to a module by an overvoltage can often not be immediately detected and only
becomes evident after an extended period of operation. The consequences are incalculable
and range from unforeseeable malfunctions to a total failure of the machine or plant.
Avoid touching components directly. Make sure that persons, the workstation and the
packaging are properly grounded.

Charge
Every person without a conductive connection to the electrical potential of his/her
surroundings can be electrostatically charged.

CAUTION
Grounding measures
There is no equipotential bonding without grounding. An electrostatic charge is not
discharged and may damage the ESD.
Protect yourself against discharge of static electricity. When working with electrostatic
sensitive devices, make sure that the person and the workplace are properly grounded.

Protective measures against discharge of static electricity
● Disconnect the power supply before you install or remove modules which are sensitive to
ESD.
● Pay attention to good grounding:
– When handling electrostatical sensitive devices, make sure that persons, the
workstation and devices, tools and packaging used are properly grounded. In this
manner, you avoid static discharge.
● Avoid direct contact:
– As a general rule, do not touch electrostatic sensitive devices, except in the case of
unavoidable maintenance work.
– Hold the modules at their edge so that you do not touch the connector pins or
conductor paths. In this way, the discharge energy does not reach and damage the
sensitive components.
– Discharge your body electrostatically before you take a measurement at a module. Do
so by touching grounded metallic parts. Always use grounded measuring instruments.

NOTICE
Avoid dewing
If the HMI device is subjected to low temperatures or extreme fluctuations in temperature
during transportation, moisture could occur on or inside the HMI device. Dewing can occur.
This can cause malfunctions.
The HMI device must have acquired room temperature before it is put into operation. Do
not expose the HMI device to direct radiation from a heater in order to warm it up. If there is
condensation, wait approximately four hours until the HMI device has dried completely
before switching it on.
Proper transport and storage, installation and assembly as well as careful operation and
maintenance are required to ensure trouble-free and safe operation of the HMI device.
The warranty for the HMI device will be deemed void if these stipulations are not heeded.

Glossary
Configuration software
Configuration software is used to create projects used for the purpose of process
visualization. WinCC represents such configuration software, for example.
Configuring PC
A configuring PC is a programming device or PC on which plant projects are created using
an engineering software.
Degree of protection
The degree of protection specifies a standard of electronic equipment for a variety of
ambient conditions – and the protection of humans against potential danger when using this
equipment.
The degree of protection classified by IP differs from the protection class. But both involve
protection against touching dangerous electric voltage. The degree of protection also
classifies the protection of equipment against dirt and moisture.
Display duration
Defines whether a system event is displayed on the HMI device and the duration of the
display.
EMC
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) refers to a usually desirable state, in which technical
equipment does not disturb one another with unwanted electrical or electromagnetic effects.
Electromagnetic compatibility deals with technical and regulatory questions of undesired,
mutual influence in electrical engineering.
Event
Functions are triggered by defined incoming events. Events can be configured. Events which
can be assigned to a button include "Press" and "Release", for example.
Field
Area reserved in configured screens for the input and output of values.
Flash memory
Flash memory is a non-volatile memory with EEPROM chips that is implemented either as
mobile storage medium, or as permanently installed memory module on the motherboard.

Operating Instructions, 03/2012, A5E03404994-02
Glossary
Function key
Function keys on the HMI device can be assigned user-specific functions. The functions
assigned to these keys are defined during configuration. The assignment of the function keys
may be specific to an active screen or independent of it.
Half Brightness Life Time
Time period after which brightness is reduced to 50% of the original value. The specified
value depends on the operating temperature.
Hardcopy
Output of the screen content to a printer.
HMI device
An HMI device is a device used for the operation and monitoring of machines and plants.
The machine or plant states are visualized on the HMI device by means of graphic objects or
signal lamps. The operator controls of the HMI device allow the operator to interact with the
processes of the machine or plant.
HMI device image
The HMI device image is a file that can be transferred from the configuring PC to the HMI
device. The HMI device image contains the operating system for the HMI device and the
elements of the runtime software required to run a project.
I/O field
An I/O field enables the input or output of values on the HMI device which are transferred to
the PLC.
Infotext
An infotext is a configured information on objects within a project. Infotext for an alarm, for
example, may contain information on the cause of the fault and troubleshooting routines.
Object
An object is a project element such as a screen or an alarm. Objects are used to view or
enter texts and values on the HMI device.
Operating element
An operating element is a component of a project used to enter values and trigger functions.
A button, for example, is an operating element.

Glossary
Plant
General term referring to machines, processing centers, systems, plants and processes
which are operated and monitored on an HMI device.
PLC
PLC is a general term for devices and systems with which the HMI device communicates, for
example SIMATIC S7.
PLC job
A PLC job triggers a function for the PLC on the HMI device.
Process visualization
Process visualization is the representation of technical processes by means of text and
graphic elements. Configured plant screens allow operator intervention in active plant
processes using the input and output data.
Project
A project is the result of a configuration using a configuration software. The project normally
contains several screens with embedded system-specific objects, basic settings and alarms.
A project configured with WinCC is saved in a project file with the extension "*. ap11".
You need to distinguish between a project on the configuring PC and an executable project
on an HMI device. A project on the configuring PC can be available in more languages than
can be managed on the HMI device. The project on the configuring PC can also be set up for
different HMI devices. You can only transfer an executable project to an HMI device if it has
been especially compiled for it.
Project file
A project file is a file from which the executable project file for use on the HMI device is
generated. The project file is usually not transferred and is retained on the configuring PC.
The file name extension of a project file is "*.ap11".
Project file, compressed
Compressed format of the project file. The compressed project file can be transferred in
addition to the executable project file to the corresponding HMI device. For this purpose,
backtransfer must be enabled in the project on the configuring PC. The compressed project
file is usually saved to an external memory card.
A compressed project file has the extension *.pdz.

Operating Instructions, 03/2012, A5E03404994-02
Glossary
Project file, executable
An executable project file is the file generated from the project file for a specific HMI device.
The executable project file is transferred to the associated HMI device where it is used to
operate and monitor plants.
An executable project file has the extension "*.fwc".
Protection class
The protection class is used in electrical engineering to classify and identify electrical
equipment in relation to existing safety measures designed to prevent electric shock.
There are four protection classes for electrical equipment.
Recipe
A recipe is a combination of tags that form a fixed data structure. The configured data
structure can be assigned data in the configuration software or on the HMI device and is
then referred to as a record. The use of recipes ensures that all data assigned to a data
record is transferred synchronously to the PLC.
Runtime software
The runtime software is a process visualization software used to test a project on a
configuring PC.
Screen
A screen is a form of visualization for all logically related process data in a plant. The
representation of the process data can be visually supported by graphic objects.
Screen object
A screen object refers to objects such as rectangles, I/O fields or alarm views which are
configured for visualization or operation of the plant.
System event
A system event is assigned to the "System" alarm class. A system event refers to internal
states on the HMI device and the PLC.
Tab order
The tab order defined in the course of project engineering determines the sequence for
activating objects by pressing the <TAB> key.

Glossary
Tag
A tag is a defined memory location to which values can be written and from which values can
be read. This can be done from the PLC or the HMI device. We distinguish between external
tags (process tags) and internal tags, depending on whether or not the tag is interconnected
with the PLC.
Transfer
Transfer of a runtime project from the configuring PC to the HMI device.
WinCC
WinCC (TIA Portal) is engineering software for configuring SIMATIC Panels, SIMATIC
Industrial PC and standard PC with the visualization software WinCC Runtime Advanced or
the SCADA system, WinCC Runtime Professional.
