Sources of light
Notice
Position the screen so that it is not subject to direct sunlight or other strong sources of light.
Defective pixels in the display
At present, the manufacturing process of modern displays does not guarantee that all pixels
of the display will be perfect. A small number of defective pixels in the display is therefore
unavoidable. This does not present a functional problem as long as the defective pixels are
not bunched in one location.
Further information is available in the section "General technical data" of the "Technical
data" chapter.
Burn-in dffect on TFT displays
A permanent picture with bright images can lead to a burn-in effect on the TFT LCD.
If a screen saver is activated, please observe the following:
• The liquid crystals in screen savers which actuate active black when the backlighting is
on, e.g. flying stars "starfield simulation," renew themselves. Pay attention to the length of
time the backlighting is activated
• The following applies to screen savers which turn off the the backlighting: Each time the
backlighting is turned on, its life is reduced by 50 minutes.
Consider the following carefully:
• Screen saver
• Switch off the backlighting regularly
• Permanent display of the customer application

4.4 Mounting Positions and Fastening
Note
The computer unit with AC power supply satisfies fire protection requirements to
EN60950-1. It may therefore be installed without additional fire-proofing measures.
• Provide adequate volume in the switchgear cabinet for air circulation and heat transport.
Keep at least 10 cm distance between the device and switchgear cabinet.
• Ensure that the maximum air intake temperature, measured 10 cm before the air intake
opening on the fan, does not exceed 45°C. The maximum air intake temperature must be
accounted for especially when sizing closed switchgear cabinets.
• The minimum distance between the device and the housing is 10 cm on the air output
side at the fan.
• Position the device in such a way that the air vents of the housing are not covered up
following mounting.
• Ensure there is enough free space in the switchgear cabinet to allow the sheet metal
cover to be removed. You will otherwise have to remove the device from the switchgear
cabinet or swivel arm when replacing memory or the battery.
• Provide enough free space to add on to the device.
• Equip the switchgear cabinet with struts for stabilizing the mounting cut-out. Install struts
where necessary.
• Avoid extreme environmental operating conditions. Protect your device against dust,
moisture and heat.
• Install the device in such a way (see ChapterTechnical specifications) that it poses no
danger, e.g. by falling over.
• During assembly, please comply with the approved installation positions.
Notice
If you mount the device in an impermissible installation position or you do not observe the
environmental conditions (see ChapterTechnical specifications), you endanger the
product safety provided by the UL-approval and compliance with the low-voltage directive

Using the direct control key module
The direct control key module is a module that is intended for use with the SIMATIC Panel
PC 877 (exclusively for variants with an integral membrane keyboard). Digital events can be
assigned to the function keys and softkeys (F1-F20 and S1-S16) of the membrane keyboard
via this module. This means that a digital input of a PLC can be activated at the press of a
key over PROFIBUS. The module is implemented as a PROFIBUS DP slave.
Functionality
The direct control key module is used to expand the functional scope of the SIMATIC Panel
PC 877 with the following features:
• Up to 32 function keys/softkeys on the membrane keyboard of the Panel PC can be
scanned over PROFIBUS as direct keys.
• Up to 16 additional keys from an external operator panel can be connected if required.
• There are 16 digital outputs for activating checkback signal lamps (by the PLC over
PROFIBUS DP) in external operator panels.
All direct control keys can be scanned over PROFIBUS DP from the PLC.
Software control
At the Panel PC end, the direct control keys are programmed using the "Key pad" software
tool. The codes for all keys of the Panel PC 877 can be changed using this tool. It can also
be used to assign the direct control key functionality to all function keys and softkeys of the
Panel PC. The Key Pad software will be included with the direct control key module on
diskette as well as on the Documentation and Drivers CD of all Panel PC 877s .
Mounting
The direct control key module can be ordered separately from the Panel PC. It can be
retrofitted in the immediate vicinity of the Panel PC: Either on a standard mounting rail (the
mounting equipment required is included in the package with the direct control key module)
or directly using 4 screws on a wall / front panel / control panel. Detailed mounting
instructions are included with every direct control key module on paper and with every Panel
PC 877.

12.3 Separating the control unit from the computer unit
Separating the device in an uninstalled state
As an alternative, dismount the device completely and separate the control unit and
computer unit from one another in an uninstalled state. So that the processing unit, which is
swung away from the control unit, does not bend the lugs (4), place a surface under the
processing unit.
Mounting operator control unit on computer unit
To mount the operator control unit on the computer unit, perform the steps in reverse:
Caution
When you swing the control unit and processing unit together, make sure that the flatband
cables are correctly folded together and do not get squished.
In order to do this, fold the flatband cables gently with specific spacing, as shown. The bend
dimensions are specified in the following table. The USB cable does not have to be folded
because it is stored as a loop in the processing unit.

Operation of two hard disks
The two hard disks are configured as follows in the factory state of the computer:
Hard disk 0
Hard disk 1
Partition C: System, NTFS, 10 GB
Not configured
Partition D: Data, NTFS, remaining capacity
You can use the two hard disks as a 2 HHD system.
12.5.7.1
2 HDD system
Depending on the device features, the Panel PC 877 can be equipped with two 2.5“ (PATA)
hard disk drives. The slave hard disk drive is not set up. This gives you the option of backing
up your data to this hard disk. The two hard disk drives are operated as master or slave on
the primary IDE controller of the basic module. Please refer to your order documentation for
the capacities of the hard disks.
Booting from the slave hard disk
The master drive is the default boot drive. However, you may also boot the system from the
slave drive.
In order to allow booting from the second hard disk drive, you need to set it up as primary
boot device. Make the following settings in your BIOS Setup:
Select Boot > Hard Drive > <Drive name> e.g. FUJITSU MHT2030AT- (PS), then press the
"+" "-" key to move it up in the boot order.
(PS) = Primary Slave, (PM) = Primary Master.
Notice
The drive letters for the partitions on both drives are assigned by the operating system used.
You can change these in the Control Panel as required.
A defective hard disk drive may block the IDE bus. To be able to continue working with the
functional hard disk drive, disconnect the defective drive from the IDE bus and change the
jumper settings on the drive as required (master setting, see the label on the drive.)

RAID system with Promise Fast Track Controller TX2300
RAID 0 system
A RAID 0 system (Stripe) enables you to increase the read/write speed of your hard disk
system. This configuration reduces the reliability of the drive system, however. RAID 0 is
therefore not recommended and is omitted from the installation instructions.
RAID 1 system
A RAID 1 system (mirroring) enables you to increase the data security of your hard disk
system. It involves copying (mirroring) the data to a second hard disk.
Each hard disk is operated on a separate SATA channel. The system can continue to
operate even when a problem is detected on one of the hard disks. The data backed up on
the RAID 1 network is retained. This data would be lost on a single drive or without RAID 1.
RAID 1 therefore increases the availability of the system.
Controller designation:
• SATA-RAID controller of type Promise Fast Track TX 2300 for SATA drives
This is a RAID1 system configuration (mirroring with two hard disks). The hard disk drive are
operated on separate channels of the RAID Controller. This enables the system to continue
to operate on one bus even when there is a problem with a cable and therefore increases
the availability of the system.
The RAID controller PCI card is installed in PCI slot 5 of the bus module.
Note
Information about the operation of the RAID system can be found in the Promise user
manual on the Documentation and Drivers CD supplied.

Functions for RAID system management
The preinstalled software of the RAID system offers enhanced functions for using and
managing the RAID system.
SATA-RAID software is started via "Start > Programs > Promise Array Management > Local
PAM".
Access to the RAID is protected by user and password. Factory setting:
• User: Administrator
• Password: empty
Notice
The security functions of the RAID system are effective without launching the software.
The RAID status is always indicated in the Windows status bar. In the event of an error, a
hard disk can be duplicated by means of the RAID Controller BIOS or on the operating
system level. It may take up to several hours to synchronize a new disk in the
background, depending on the size of the hard disk and on the system load.
The redundant system state RAID Level 1 is reached again only after synchronization is
completed.

Configuring a RAID 1 system
Prerequisites
• Two identical SATA hard disks; the primary hard disk contains the operating system and
data (boot drive), the second hard disk is empty.
• If the DiagMonitor has been installed, the DiagMonitor Agent must be stopped. To exit the
DiagMonitor agent, enter the command "NET STOP SNMP" in the DOS box.
• The Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional operating system installed
in the factory state already includes the required drivers and the unconfigured RAID
software (PAM TOOL).
Note
Re-starting the DiagMonitor agent
After the RAID 1 volume has been sucessfully created, you must start the DiagMonitor
agent again. Enter the "NET START SNMP" commands in the DOS box.
If the primary hard disk does not have an operating system installed, follow the instructions
provided by the section "Restoring the factory state of the software using the Restore DVD".
Comments about faults
A message from the "Promise Array Management" program is generated when a hard disk
fails.
This message is also entered in the status bar of the Windows operating system.
Notice
Input delay
Depending on the load on the processor and the hard disk activity at the time, the system
may become briefly overloaded when a disk fails due to the synchronization process.
In extreme cases, input from the keyboard and touchscreen may be delayed for a brief
period.
Note
BIOS messages during startup
At the first restart / cold start following a hard disk failure or installation of a new hard disk
(servicing), the RAID BIOS reports that the RAID functionality is no longer available and
offers the appropriate operator options.

Boot error messages
During startup (the boot process), the BIOS first performs a Power On Self Test (POST) and
checks whether certain functional units of the PC are operating error-free. When an error
occurs within this phase, the BIOS outputs a tone sequence (beep code) based on the
current test result. The boot sequence is interrupted immediately if fatal errors occur.
If the POST does not return an error, the BIOS initializes and tests further functional units. In
this startup phase, the graphics controller is initialized and any error messages are output to
the screen.

Temperature limits
Cause
If the device is used for its intended purpose, the temperature threshold values are not
exceeded or fallen below. When the LED "Temp" on the upper left side of the operator
control unit lights up, check the following:
• Are the fan apertures covered?
• Has the fan failed (check speed display in the SOM or on the DiagMonitor)?
• Is the ambient temperature higher than the allowed value (see "Technical data")?
• Is the total output of the power supply within the specified limit?
• Are the heatsinks inside the PC covered with dust?
Remedy
The temperature error is retained until the temperatures have fallen below the thresholds
and you have acknowledged the error alarm in the SOM program. Click on the button with
the "small broom" icon. When the error alarm has been acknowledged, the "TEMP" LED on
the devices goes off and the title bar and "SOM" icon in the status bar of the SOM program
changes from red to green. If you have not installed the SOM program or DiagMonitor, you
must restart the PC.

Layout and principle of operation
The bus board is designed as a link between the motherboard and the expansion modules. It
is mounted with two screws.
The bus board has two PCI expansion slots (2x long), two long shared ISA/PCI and one long
ISA slot. It can host expansion modules conforming to ISA specification (Rev. 3.1) and PCI
specification (Rev. 2.0 for 5 V and 3.3 V modules). All PCI slots are master–capable. The
expansion modules are supplied with power via the bus board to motherboard connection.

17.2.3
Exclusive PCI hardware interrupt
Applications demanding a high-performance interrupt require a high-speed hardware
interrupt reaction. The PCI hardware interrupt should be used only by one resource in order
to ensure high-speed reaction of the hardware. This can be forced by appropriate setting in
the system BIOS.
Setting up a reserved interrupt on the device
A reserved interrupt can only be set and used for PCI slots 2 and 4. Further reserved
interrupts for use on the slots are not available.
A reserved interrupt cannot be used on any of the PCI slots in the basic configuration. In
order to set up a reserved interrupt, you first need to disable the functions on the
motherboard1). This is possible for PCI slots 2 and 4.
In order to set up a reserved interrupt on PCI slot 2, you need to disable USB Controller B
(this is the external USB port at the top) in the BIOS.
In order to set up a reserved interrupt on PCI slot 4, you need to disable USB 2.0 Controller
in the BIOS (all USB ports are now operating in USB 1.1 mode) and (if installed in the
device) the PROFIBUS.
1) For
information on how to disable motherboard functions, refer to the chapter dealing with
the BIOS setup.
Assigning a reserved interrupt in the BIOS Setup
With the factory setting of the system BIOS, the interrupts are automatically assigned to the
slots.
Depending on the system configuration, several slots may be assigned the same interrupt.
Here we refer to interrupt sharing.
The special feature of the BIOS of the device is that interrupts can be set selectively and
assigned to the interrupt channels of the slots. Here we refer to a reserved interrupt.
Specific interrupts can be assigned to slots in the Advanced menu of the BIOS setup.
To do so:
To enable the use of a reserved interrupt at PCI slot 2, assign PCI IRQ Line 2 the required
free interrupt, and all other PCI interrupt channels (channels 1, 3, 4) another interrupt.
To enable the use of a reserved interrupt at PCI slot 4, assign PCI IRQ Line 4 the required
free interrupt, and all other PCI interrupt channels (channels 1, 2, 3) another interrupt.
To do this, open the Advanced menu of the BIOS setup and then PCI Configuration. In this
menu you can assign the specific PCI IRQ channels to the respective interrupts.
You cannot assign interrupts that are already used by the system.
If you assign an interrupt which is already in use by the system or is reserved, the system
marks it with a yellow star.
➜ May not be used.
Interrupts not reserved by the system can be assigned twice.

Under normal conditions, the signals -SBHE, LA17 - LA23, -MEMR and MEMW are operated
as outputs (sending from the CPU). Only CPU modules which are suitable for use as a
master CPU for system bus access send and receive these signals. A minus sign “-” in front
of the signal name shows that the signal is LOW active.

Operating system licenses
Description:
The supplied and installed Windows operating systems of the SIMATIC PCs are full
Windows versions without any function restrictions. The additional wording "For Embedded
Systems" on the accompanying operating system Recovery CD describes the contractual
conditions under which Siemens AG acquires the licenses from Microsoft. The Microsoft
Windows 2000 Professional MUI and Microsoft Windows XP Professional MUI operating
systems supplied to Siemens AG under the license "Microsoft Operating Systems for
Embedded Systems" for use with SIMATIC PG/PC products are equivalent to the relevant
version from the desktop/office sales channel.
This provides numerous advantages for customers in the industrial environment over the
OEM licenses marketed in the office environment:
• No license for Windows XP Professional is required from Microsoft by the customer
(important when components are replaced during servicing)
• In addition to the operating system CD (Recovery CD), the contract permits a Restore
DVD to be supplied (image of the operating system as delivered - including all relevant
drivers and software)
• The license permits images created by a customer to be transferred to any number of
SIMATIC PCs that are fitted with the relevant COA (Certificate of Authentificity) labels "for
Embedded Systems"
• The COA label on the device is the only license verification required. An additional
license agreement is not necessary
The license conditions in the operating system pack contain a reference to "restricted
functionality". This note only refers to the application scope of this license and is defined for
industrial applications, such as industrial controls, programming devices, information
terminals, instruments, displays, Web panels, etc. These devices must not be primarily
intended for use in domestic or office environments.
The licenses "for Embedded Systems" must not be confused with the Windows embedded
operating systems, such as Windows XPe (Windows XP embedded). These may also
contain functional limitations that have been implemented in favor of reduced memory
allocation for image generation.

Overview
BIOS SETUP program
The BIOS SETUP program is stored in the ROM BIOS. Information about the system
configuration is stored in the battery-backed RAM of the device.
You can use SETUP to set the hardware configuration (for example, the hard disk type) and
define the system properties. You can also use SETUP to set the time-of-day and date.
Changing the device configuration
Your device configuration is preset for working with the software supplied with the unit. You
should only change the preset values if you have modified your device in any way, or if a
fault occurs when the unit is powered up.

The parameters which you can select here are usually saved on the respective IDE
drive. The 'Auto' setting in the 'Type' field means that these values are automatically
read from the drive and written to memory (Auto detect).
If Type is selected for a drive that cannot be detected, a time-out is triggered within
approximately 1 minute and the entries remain unchanged. You should always check
that the interfaces for which you select 'Auto' are in fact connected to drives.
Select “User” if you want to define the hard disk drive. You also need to configure the
other options, for example, Cylinder, Heads, Sectors/Track, or other properties in
accordance with the hard disk drive.
Select "None" if you have not connected a disk drive. This setting reduces the
system waiting time.

ESD guideline
What does ESD mean?
Almost all electronic modules are equipped with highly integrated components and elements
in MOS technology. For technological reasons, these electronic components are very
sensitive to overvoltages and, consequently, to electrostatic discharge. These components
are therefore marked as follows:
• ESD: Electrostatically Sensitive Devices
• ESD: Internationally recognized marking for components and modules susceptible to
electrostatic discharge
The following symbols on switch cabinets, module carriers or packaging indicate their
susceptibility to electrostatic discharge:
ESD components are destroyed by voltage and energy far below the limits of human
perception. Voltages of this kind occur as soon as a device or an assembly is touched by a
person who is not electrostatically discharged ESD components which were subject to such
voltage are usually not recognized immediately as being defective, because the malfunction
does not occur until after a longer period of operation.
Note
More information is located on the rating plate. The rating plate is described in the chapter
"Planning use."

B ESD directives
B.1 B.1 ESD guideline
Precautions against electrostatic discharge
Most plastics can be charged easily. Therefore, keep plastics away from ESD components!
When working with electrostatically sensitive components, make sure that the person, the
workstation and the packaging are properly grounded. Conduct the electrostatic charge
away from your body by touching the mounting plate for the interfaces, for example.
Handling ESD modules
As a rule: Only touch ESD components if unavoidable due to necessary tasks.
Only touch the components when the following holds true:
• You are permanently grounded by means of an ESD armband.
• You are wearing ESD shoes or ESD shoes grounding protective strips in connection with
ESD floors.
Before you touch an electronic assembly, your body must be discharged. Touch a
conductive object immediately beforehand, e.g. a bare metal part of a control cabinet or the
water pipe.
Do not allow chargeable, highly insulated materials, e.g. plastic films, insulating tabletops,
synthetic clothing fibers, to come into contact with ESD components.
Place ESD components only on conductive surfaces (work surfaces with ESD surface,
conductive ESD foam, ESD packing bag, ESD transport container).
Do not expose ESD components to visual display units, monitors or televisions. Maintain a
distance of at least 10 cm to screens.
Handle flat components only by their edges. Do not touch component connectors or
conductors. This prevents charges from reaching and damaging sensitive components.
Measuring and modifying ESD components
Measure the ESD component under the following conditions only:
• The measuring device is grounded with a protective conductor, for example.
• The probe on the electrically isolated measuring device has been discharged, e.g. by
touching the bare metal of a part of the control cabinet.
• Your body is discharged. To do so, touch a grounded metallic object.
Solder only with grounded soldering irons.
Shipping ESD modules
Always store or ship ESD components in conductive packaging, e.g. metallized plastic boxes
or metal cans. Leave the components and parts in their packaging until installation.
If the packaging is not conductive, wrap the ESD component in a conductive material, e.g.
rubber foam, ESD bag, household aluminum foil, or paper, before packing. Do not wrap the
ESD component in plastic bags or plastic film.
In ESD components containing installed batteries, make sure that the conductive packaging
does not touch the battery connectors or short circuit. Insulate the connectors with suitable
material.
