Overview
1.1
Product description
SIMATIC ITC - the high-performance local thin client solution
Industrial Thin Clients are low-cost HMI terminals that provide local HMI functionality in
plants spread over large areas. In this way, Industrial Thin Clients contribute to an improved
overview, operability, and productivity of plants. In addition, the Industrial Thin Clients also
reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) by virtue of their extremely easy commissioning,
efficient Ethernet networking, reduced software costs, and minimal service costs.
The Industrial Thin Client always communicates with a host, such as an HMI device,
industrial PC, or server, via the following connection types:
● Web browser functionality
● SIMATIC WinCC Sm@rtServer
● Standard RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) from Microsoft
● VNC (Virtual Network Computing)
● SINUMERIK connection
The Industrial Thin Client itself requires no installation and no licenses to operate. For
remote configuration, we offer the Management Software Remote Configuration Center at
(as of RCC V2.0). You can also bridge greater distances via Ethernet.
You can do the following from the Industrial Thin Client:
● Display and run web-based content from a web server available on the network (e.g., S7
controller, Intranet/Internet) via the integrated web browser.
● Run WinCC projects on other HMI devices or industrial PCs via Sm@rtServer.
● Run HMI applications (e.g., WinCC), Office applications (e.g., Excel), or SAP directly at
the machine via RDP.
● Operate a PC remotely with VNC (similar to RDP)
● Use the SINUMERIK connection to make the Industrial Thin Client a SINUMERIK Thin
Client Unit (TCU).
Hardware equipment
The device is available with 12", 15", 19", or 22" LCD TFT widescreen display with 16 million
colors. You operate the device via the touch screen or a keyboard/mouse connected to the
two USB ports.
In terms of the mounting cutout (width and height) and design, the Industrial Thin Client builtin units are compatible with the SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels of the same size.

Overview
1.2 Product package
Easy commissioning
The Industrial Thin Client merely requires an IP address. For fast on-site commissioning and
diagnostics, the SIMATIC ITC is equipped with a Setup Wizard optimized for touch operation.
Alternatively, the Remote Configuration Center (RCC V2.0 or higher) management software
enables easy, efficient remote configuration and diagnostics of one or more devices. Local
software installation on the device is not necessary. The display and user interface of the
application are provided by the host.
High robustness
As a remote operator terminal without any rotating media (hard drive or fan), you can
operate the Industrial Thin Client on machines having stringent requirements for mechanical
robustness.

Typical applications
Industrial Thin Clients can be used as operator terminals in different scenarios. With the
Industrial Thin Client, for example, you can access an HMI device and hence control a work
process. You can also use the Industrial Thin Client to run Office applications on a server, for
example, on a PC and modern web applications.
Typical applications are presented in the following.
Access to a Sm@rtServer
The Industrial Thin Client accesses an HMI device or industrial PC as a Sm@rtServer client
using the SIMATIC WinCC Sm@rtServer option. You are operating and monitoring a WinCC
project (TIA portal). You operate and monitor a WinCC flexible project with the SIMATIC
WinCC Sm@rtAccess option in the same way.
The following figure shows one possible configuration.

Overview
1.5 Typical applications
Access to a server via "RDP".
The Industrial Thin Client uses RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) to access a server, such as
an industrial PC or a PC. The following applications are also possible.
● WinCC/Web Navigator
The Industrial Thin Client uses an Internet browser on the server to access the WinCC
Web Navigator as a Web Navigator client. In this case, the operating system Windows
Server 2003 or 2008 must be installed on the server. For more information, refer to the
documentation for the WinCC/Web Navigator option.
● The Industrial Thin Client accesses an Office application (e.g., MS Excel) or SAP
application on the server. In contrast to the Windows Server operating systems, you can
only operate one screen with Windows XP and Windows 7. The other monitor is always
blocked.
● The Industrial Thin Client accesses an Office application running in Windows Server 2003,
(e.g., MS Excel) or SAP application on the server.
The following figure shows one possible configuration with the Windows Server operating
system on an Industrial PC or a PC.

about the IT security developments for your products. For information on this topic, refer to:
Industry Online Support (http://www.siemens.de/automation/csi_en_WW): You can register
for a product-specific newsletter here.
For the safe operation of a plant/machine, however, it is also necessary to integrate the
automation components into an overall IT security concept for the entire plant/machine,
which corresponds to the state-of-the-art IT technology. You can find information on this
under: Industrial Security (http://www.siemens.com/industrialsecurity).
Products used from other manufacturers should also be taken into account here.
Remote maintenance is not recommended for production and should be disabled before
production is started.
The remote maintenance settings are disabled by default. If you enable them for
maintenance purposes, disable the remote maintenance settings once again for production
in the start menu "Configuration > System", "Remote maintenance" (see configuration
settings, section "System settings").
If you use Remote configuration in production, we recommend using your own, private key
for security reasons (see section "Remote configuration of several devices", "Key
assignment").
If you are using a private key, the remote configuration service is only guaranteed from a PC
with installed private key file. Assign a password for logging on to the PC.
The Remote configuration service (SSH) is enabled by default. If you do not need remote
configuration, disable remote configuration in the system settings of the device during
production (see section "Remote configuration of several devices", "Securing remote
configuration").

Connection of equipotential bonding
Differences in electrical potential
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.
● 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 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.

4.2
Interrupting and restoring a connection
Introduction
The connection to the server can be interrupted in several ways:
● The server is offline or has has not completed its startup sequence.
● The password is incorrect.
● A firewall is blocking server access.
● The SINUMERIK server does not support the Industrial Thin Client, for example, if the
firmware on the server is outdated.
● The server has been shut down, for example, for maintenance purposes.
● The PROFINET/Ethernet network cable has been disconnected.
● A connection problem occurred in the network.
● A client-server connection was started on another device which logs onto the server with
the same data. The client-server connection running on your device is then terminated.
Note that there can be multiple client-server connections at one time.
Automatic connection establishment
The device tries to re-establish the interrupted connection automatically. There are two basic
standard cases for this:
● Initial start of a connection
The connection cannot be established because the server is not ready, for example. The
device makes continuous attempts to establish the connection to the server.
● Existing connection
An existing connection to the server is interrupted because the network cable has been
removed or the network is faulty, for example.
The device makes continuous attempts to re-establish the connection to the server.
Exception: If the device receives a message via the network, for example when the
server is shut down, the device terminates the current client-server connection.
Afterwards, the device will only try to re-establish the interrupted connection to the server
if the "Reconnect automatically" option is selected in the configuration settings.
Terminate the active connection in order to cancel the attempts to establish a connection.
Special features
SINUMERIK
Initial start of a connection: Maximum of 40 connection attempts. Then the SINUMERIK
connection is terminated and the configuration settings are restored.
Existing connection: Automatic connection establishment. After the connection has been
canceled, the message "Waiting for HMI" appears.

Specifying device name
In the "Device information" area, specify a name for the Industrial Thin Client in "Device
name". This name will allow the administrator to identify the device. The device name will be
displayed at the following places:
● In the title bar of the configuration settings
● In the case of Remote configuration of several devices (Page 66), in the device window
that lists the Industrial Thin Clients found in the network.
● As the PROFINET station name in SIMATIC Manager
The device name is also the PROFINET station name and must meet the following
conditions:
● One or more identifiers separated by a dot.
● Length of identifier: 1-63 characters
● Length of the device name: 1-255 characters, but only up to 26 characters are displayed
on the device
● The identifiers contain lower case letters a-z and numbers 0-9.
● The identifiers cannot start or not end with "-".
● The first identifier does not have the form "port-xyz" or "port-xyz-abcde" where a, b, c, d,
e, x, y, z = numbers 0 to 9.
● Identifiers do not start with "xn--" if RFC 3490 is applied.
● The device name may not end with "0".
● The device name does not have the n.n.n.n format, where n = 0 to 999.
Devices with more than one Ethernet interface do not need more than one device name.
Only up to 23 characters of the comment are displayed on the device (see above).
Setting up screen
Set the system language that includes the following texts under "Language":
● Start menu and settings
● On-screen keyboard and externally attached USB keyboard
● Messages
CAUTION
Damage to the machine or plant through operating error
The set system language, for example German, also determines the keyboard language of
the externally connected USB keyboard. If you then connect an English keyboard, however,
such as is the case with a SINUMERIK connection, the keys do not have the same
meaning as is printed on them.
This may result in operating errors at the machine and personal injury or damage to the
machine or plant. To connect an English keyboard, set the system language to English
under "Language" in the Start menu "Configuration > System".

Set the "Screen brightness". You can also use the system settings to "Calibrate touch
screen" (see section "Calibrating the touch screen (Page 98)").
If you select the "Right mouse click" option, each contact on the touch screen lasting more
than 2 seconds will be interpreted as a right-click.
Example: If you touch the "Workstation" icon in Windows for more than 2 seconds, the
operating system or application will respond as though you had right-clicked the icon: the
context menu is displayed where you can select the "Properties" item, for example.
Update firmware
You update the device firmware either directly on the device via USB or from a PC via
Remote configuration of several devices (Page 66).
NOTICE
Data loss during firmware update
All configuration settings are lost during a firmware update. The factory settings are
restored after the update, which also resets passwords and calibration information.
Save the configuration file before you update the firmware and reload it after the update
(see below).
NOTICE
Damage to the device
If the power supply or the connection to the device containing the firmware is interrupted
during the update process, the device may no longer be functional.
 Ensure that the power supply and the connection to the device are maintained during
the entire updating process.
 Make sure that all applications running on the device are closed.
 Before updating the firmware, restart the device to prevent memory problems.
In the "Device configuration" area, use the "Update" button to select an update file "*.upd".
The selected file will be transferred to the device. To determine whether the selected file is
suitable for the device, the system checks it against the following criteria, for example:
● The selected file is an update file.
● The selected update file is more current than the version installed on the device.
● The selected update file is suitable for this device.
If all the criteria are met, the selected update file will be run on the device. The device and
the Setup Wizard restart automatically.
Note
The progress of the update is displayed on the screen.

5.3 Configuration settings of the device
Save and restore the configuration file
You back up the configuration file of the device either directly on the device via USB or from
a PC via Remote configuration of several devices (Page 66).
The configuration file contains all device-specific configuration settings with the exception of
the background image and the touch calibration. You can back up the configuration file of a
device and reload it to several devices, for example:
● Use the "Save" button to back up the configuration file for the device to the connected
drive. To do this, you select a folder in the file system and close the dialog with "OK". The
configuration file is saved to the folder.
● Use the "Restore" button to reload the backed up configuration file from the connected
USB drive, for example, if the current configuration file has been inadvertently overwritten.
To do this, you select a configuration file from a file dialog and close the dialog with "OK".
The syntax within the configuration file is checked. If the syntax is free of errors, the
configuration file will be transferred to the device and the old configuration file will be
overwritten; otherwise a message will be output.
Note
Saving the configuration file
Configuration files of the older version V1.x are no longer supported. Back up the current
configuration file before and after each firmware update.
Restoring the configuration file
Only restore configuration files that were created on the device or with the Remote
Configuration Center. A configuration file may not be altered after backup, for example,
by means of an editor.
IP address conflicts
Do not restore configuration files with the same IP addresses on different devices.
Reassign the IP addresses.
Restore to factory settings
Restoring factory settings has the following effects:
● The default configuration file overwrites the configuration file. All connection data for the
network, remote access and web browser is reset. The language and screen brightness,
the settings and position of the taskbar and on-screen keyboard, and the background
image are reset.
NOTICE
Data loss restoring the factory settings
Save the configuration file before you restore the factory settings and reload it
afterwards (see above).
● The administrator password for logon to the configuration settings is reset to the default
administrator password "admin".
● The SSH password is reset to the default password, which has an effect on the SSH
configuration service. Additional information is available in the section "Assigning a key
(Page 78)".
● The calibration information is reset.

Perform remote maintenance on device
Allows remote access to the device. The device has a VNC server for this purpose. With
VNC remote access, you can "Permit access to Desktop" or "Permit operation", in other
works, enable operation of the plant or machine from the device. You also set the "Port" for
remote access.
Note
During a SINUMERIK connection, a new IP address is assigned to the device. Remote
maintenance of the device is then no longer possible.
For remote maintenance, use the IP address that was assigned by the SINUMERIK
connection.
Activate remote configuration
Remote configuration made possible by SSH is enabled by default. But SSH poses a
potential security risk. Detailed information is available in the section "Backing up remote
configuration (Page 77)". If you do not need remote configuration, deactivate "SSH".

The following figure shows the network settings in the Start menu "Configuration > Network".
You can perform the following actions:
● Specify network parameters
● Assign network parameters dynamically
● Use DNS server
● Check valid settings
● Specify speed and mode of the connection
Note
These network settings are not relevant for the SINUMERIK connection. The SINUMERIK
connection automatically obtains its network settings from the system network.
Note
During a SINUMERIK connection, a new IP address is assigned to the device with the
following effect:
 Any active RDP connection is terminated.
 Remote maintenance of the device is no longer possible.
When the SINUMERIK connection is closed, the original IP address is restored.

Assigning device parameters
5.3 Configuration settings of the device
Specify network parameters
You assign the network parameters either statically or dynamically:
● If "Assign IP address automatically (DHCP)" is not selected, assign a valid static IP
address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
● You can also use the "Assign IP address automatically (DHCP)" option to specify that the
network parameters will be assigned dynamically by the DHCP server and are therefore
not available for assignment (grayed out).
Note
IP address conflicts
Before an IP address is assigned, a check is made to determine whether a device with
this IP address already exists in the network. If so, an error message is appears and the
address is not assigned. Assign an individual IP address to each device.
The subnet mask specifies the maximum number of nodes, e.g., "255.255.255.0".
Note
Invalid subnet mask
If a subnet mask is invalid, an error message appears and the subnet mask is not assigned.
Assign a valid subnet mask.
Activate a PROFINET service under "Enable LLDP" (Link Layer Discovery Protocol) that
identifies the Industrial Thin Client in the network as such. If other network components also
make their identity known, the management station, such as STEP7, can then detect the
network topology automatically.
LLDP is only available and enabled for devices as of version 2.0.1.
Assign network parameters dynamically
The following applies only if the "Assign IP address automatically (DHCP)" option is selected.
The device has two features that identify it uniquely. Under "Device identification (DHCP)",
you specify the identification feature that the DHCP server uses to identify the device:
● If you select "Device name", the DHCP server identifies the device on the basis of the
name stored in the System settings (Page 41), in the "Device name" field. If configured
correspondingly, the DHCP server searches for the device name in its configuration file
and transfers the network settings stored there to the Industrial Thin Client.
● If you select the most common identification parameter "MAC address", the DHCP server
identifies the device on the basis of its MAC address.

Assigning device parameters
5.3 Configuration settings of the device
Use DNS server
You can manually enter the IP address of the DNS server under "DNS server". If you select
the "Automatically assign DNS server" option, the manual IP address is overwritten by an IP
address assigned by the DHCP server. This requires that the "Assign IP address
automatically (DHCP)" option is also selected.
Note
No connection between client and server
If you edit the configuration settings from an external PC, take the following into account:
The connection can be interrupted as soon as you enter a different IP address in "IP
address" or select the "Assign IP address automatically (DHCP)" option.
If you edit the configuration settings locally on the device, the connection to the configuration
settings will be maintained even if you change the IP address in the configuration settings.
If the "Assign IP address automatically (DHCP)" option is selected and no DHCP server is
available, no IP address will be assigned to the device. Communication between the server
and device is not possible.
 Open the configuration settings locally on the device, and assign an IP address that is not
already used in the network to the device.
 You can also start remote configuration and open the "IP" tab to assign IP addresses for
one or more devices.
Alternatively, you can select the "Assign IP address automatically (DHCP)" option with
"Device name".
Note
A maximum of 240 characters is permitted. For connections via RDP, the device name will
be automatically truncated to the first 15 characters at logon.
Check valid settings
In the Start menu "Configuration> Information", the network settings that are currently valid
are always shown, regardless of whether they were assigned statically or dynamically. Use
this approach to check whether the change in the network settings was accepted or not.

5.3 Configuration settings of the device
Specify speed and mode of the connection
The device detects the data rate and the connection mode of its physical connection partner
and adapts itself automatically. The "Set automatically" option is therefore selected by
default. The other parts of the dialog are disabled. A switch can also be a connection partner.
You can, however, set the data rate and the connection mode manually.
Note
Disable the automatic setting only if the connection partner requires this.
If the "Set automatically" option is not selected, the following default settings apply:
● "Rate": 100 Mbps
● "Half duplex"
Basic rule for specifying speed and mode: The connection works best if you specify one of
the following combinations:
● Automatic detection for both connection partners or
● Same speed and same mode for both connection partners

Basics
Introduction
Users can connect from the Thin Client to different servers. Example:
● RDP Server 1: Access to office planning documents
● VNC Server 2: Access to Office spreadsheets
● Sm@rtServer 3: Access to WinCC messages at the plant
● SINUMERIK Server 4: Access to a SINUMERIK plant screen
● Web Server 5: Access to web-based content, for example, of an S7 controller
(PROFINET) or Intranet/Internet using the integrated web browser.
Note
Web connection and web browser
You can configure a web connection, for example, the server address, in the Connection
settings (Page 54). You configure the web browser itself, for example, its proxy settings,
in the Application settings (Page 64).
You can establish up to 5 such client-server connections at the same time. These
connections are specified mainly by the following parameters:
● Connection type, e.g., "Sm@rtServer" or "RDP"
● IP address of the server
● Port of the server
The Industrial Thin Client then displays the server screen as a full screen.
This section shows how you configure client-server connections. The connection settings
can be found in the configuration settings in the Start menu "Configuration > Connections".

Special features with SINUMERIK
Note
The SINUMERIK connection is configured automatically through the SINUMERIK system
network and therefore does not need any connection settings or a connection password.
Note
PROFINET basic functions
The SINUMERIK connection supports only the PROFINET basic services. During a
SINUMERIK connection, a new IP address is assigned to the device with the following effect:
 Any active RDP connection is terminated.
 Remote maintenance of the device is no longer possible.
When the SINUMERIK connection is closed, the original IP address is restored.
Screen can no longer be operated
The screen can no longer be operated when you start a second SINUMERIK connection.
Close the active SINUMERIK connection before you start a new SINUMERIK connection.
Screen display
The SINUMERIK connection is displayed full-screen on the Industrial Thin Client. In the
process, the server adapts its screen resolution to the screen resolution of the client that has
the operating rights.
All other connected clients also display the server screen:
● If the clients without operating rights have a lower screen resolution than the server, the
clients scale down the server screen that is too large and display it as a full screen.
● If the clients without operating rights have the same or higher screen resolution, the
clients display the server screen with reduced size in the center and in the original
resolution.
Displaying client-server connections in the taskbar
The "Display connection (favorites)" option is enabled by default so that the client-server
connection appears in the start bar (under "Favorites") and can be started from there. The
favorites contain a maximum of 10 client-server connections.
It makes sense to disable the "Display connection (favorites)" option in the following
situations:
● A server that is regularly used from a client is undergoing maintenance and is therefore
not connected.
● A second, redundant server is being set up, for the case that the first server fails.
● A client-server connection that is started automatically as a startup connection does not
need to be started from the taskbar.

5.3 Configuration settings of the device
Factory default settings
● Administrator password "admin"
● "Obtain IP address automatically (DHCP)"
Note
Misuse
The factory-set administrator password for all devices is "admin". This means that
unauthorized persons have free access to the configuration settings.
After initial commissioning or restoring of the factory settings, you should log on with "admin"
and assign a new administrator password.
Note
Avoiding malfunctions
The factory default is that the IP address is assigned dynamically (DHCP). If you disable the
"Obtain IP address automatically (DHCP)" option, there is no static IP address ("0.0.0.0").
Therefore, assign an individual IP address to each device.
Some client-server connections have already been created as examples. Set up clientserver connections with valid IP addresses.

● In "Connection name", you enter a name for the client-server connection, e.g., "Server
screen 1". The client-server connection will then appear with this name in selection
menus. If the operator selects "Server screen 1" in the taskbar, for example, the clientserver connection configured with this name will be started.
● In "Description", you enter a text for the client-server connection. This description then
appears in selection menus under "Connection name".
● Under "Server (IP address)", you specify an IP address or host name at which the server
can be reached.

● In "URL" ("Web" connection type only), you specify an Internet address at which the web
server can be reached.
● In "Server port", the default port is set. RDP: 3389, Sm@rtServer/VNC: 5900.
● In "Start program" (RDP only), you specify the software program that is automatically
started on the server with this RDP connection.
● In "Redundant 2nd server" (RDP only), you select a second, previously configured RDP
connection. If the first RDP connection configured here fails, the second RDP connection
will be started (fallback). And vice versa: If the second RDP connection fails, the first RDP
connection will be restarted.
● In "Domain" (RDP only), "User" (RDP only), and "Password", you specify the logon data
for the logon of the device onto the server.
● If you select "Autostart connection", this client-server connection is automatically
established when the device is restarted or rebooted and after modified configuration
settings are saved.
Note
Limited number of client-server connections
A maximum of 5 client-server connections can be started at the same time. If a sixth
connection is activated, an error message appears.
Only one SINUMERIK connection can be started at any one time. The screen can no
longer be operated when you activate a second connection.
● If you select "Show connection (favorites)", this client-server connection will appear in the
taskbar under "Favorites". If the favorites contain 10 connections, you cannot add an
additional connection, and this option is no longer available.
If you deselect the option, the client-server connection is not visible to the operator and
can only be started by the administrator in the Start menu "Configuration > Connections"
via the "Test" button.
● You use "Reconnect automatically" to specify how the device responds to a message that
the existing connection has been disrupted from the outside. If you select this option, the
device continually attempts to reconnect to the server, but not when you have closed the
connection yourself via the taskbar. For example, you shut down the server for
maintenance purposes. A corresponding message is sent to 10 devices, for example, that
interrupt the connection. If "Reconnect automatically" is enabled on all devices, the clientserver connection is established automatically as soon as the server is ready for
operation again.
If "Reconnect automatically" is disabled on all devices, the client-server connection has to
be restarted manually on all devices.
Note
Only one user with RDP on Windows operating system
If a second client has established the same RDP connection to the server with the
identical logon information, the client-server connection of the first client is interrupted.
Even if "Reconnect automatically" is enabled, the device does not try to re-establish the
connection to prevent a ping-pong effect between the clients.

● If you select the "Connect USB as drive" option (RDP only), you can access a USB
memory device connected to the Industrial Thin Client on the touch screen. The USB
data are transferred to the server and displayed there in Windows Explorer for the
devices. For additional information, refer to the section "Operating a USB memory device
(Page 95)".
Note
Security threat to the system
The USB may infect the server with viruses, Trojans, spam, etc.
Use a suitable virus scanner to check the data on the USB memory device, or deselect
the "Connect USB as drive" option.
● If the "Automatic scaling" option is selected (Sm@rtServer only), the device attempts to
request a server screen that will be displayed as a full screen on the device.
If the server does not support this function, an error message will be displayed. Depending
on the height-to-width ratio, the server screen is displayed within a black bar.
5.3.5.4
Setting up startup connection
Introduction
You can designate each client-server connection as an autostart connection. This means
that this client-server connection will also be started every time the device starts. The
autostart connections can be restarted even after the configuration settings have been
changed.
Note
Limited number of client-server connections
A maximum of 5 client-server connections can be started at the same time. If a sixth
connection is activated, an error message appears.
Only one SINUMERIK connection can be started at any one time. The screen can no longer
be operated when you activate a second connection.
The order cannot be defined for startup. Therefore, which of the autostart connections will
ultimately be displayed on the screen is undefined. However, you can generally switch
between the client-server connections.
Procedure
Proceed as follows to identify a client-server connection as an autostart connection:
1. Choose "Configuration > Connections" in the Start menu.
2. Select a client-server connection.
3. Touch the "Edit" button to confirm.
4. Select the "Autostart connection" option.

4. Repeat the new password.
5. If you select "Hide passwords", the password is no longer shown when you log on.
Forgetting the administrator password
If you have forgotten the administrator password, you must revert to the default administrator
password. Restore the factory settings for this.
Note
Losing the current configuration settings
When restoring to factory settings, the current configuration file is overwritten.
Once the factory settings have been restored, the administrator password "admin" is then
valid again. For security reasons it is best to enter a new administrator password.

5.3 Configuration settings of the device
After factory settings are restored, a saved configuration file can be transferred back to the
device.
Once the configuration file is restored, the password contained therein will be valid after the
device is restarted. Change the password if necessary, and make a note of it.
Closing connections with connection password
You can specify a password for terminating a client-server connection in the Start menu
"Configuration > Passwords". If the operator wants to terminate a connection, this connection
password must be entered (not for a SINUMERIK connection). If the operator enters an
incorrect password, the connection will not be terminated.
Note
Misuse
No connection password is assigned in the factory state. Without password protection it is
possible for unauthorized persons to terminate client-server connections.
Following initial commissioning and after restoring the factory settings, you should
immediately assign a connection password.
The length of the connection password is restricted to a maximum of 30 characters.
Note
If a connection password has been specified, you can alternatively terminate a client-server
connection by using the administrator password.
If you select "Allow restart", the menu entry "Restart" will be displayed underneath in the
Start menu. The operator can use this entry to restart the device.
Changing the connection password during ongoing operation
Changing the connection password works in the same way as "Changing the administrator
password" (see above) , for example from an external PC, while the operator is working on
the device. The change of the connection password becomes effective immediately. The
operator can then only terminate the current client-server connection with the new
connection password.
You can also change the connection password by entering the administrator password
instead of the old connection password.

Note
Faulty touch calibration
If the touch screen has not been calibrated or has been calibrated improperly, you will only
be able to re-display a hidden taskbar by means of a connected external mouse.
Make sure that the touch screen of your HMI device has been calibrated correctly.
● "Always in front" (default setting)
The taskbar is displayed after the device is switched on. The buttons to minimize or
maximize the taskbar are not displayed. The operator cannot change the taskbar.
● "Always hidden"
The taskbar is hidden. The operator cannot display the taskbar and, thus, cannot make
any changes to the active client-server connections. Because the configuration settings
cannot be opened without the taskbar, this setting can only be disabled again with
external access (see section "Remote configuration of several devices (Page 66)").
● "Minimized"
The taskbar is minimized in the display. The operator can maximize the taskbar and
minimize it again using the corresponding buttons, which are always displayed.
Specifying menu entries in the Start menu
The settings show the menu entries of the Start menu in the taskbar.
● Web browser
● Screen brightness
● Clean screen
● Calibration
● USB devices
If you select a menu entry, it will be displayed. If you deselect a menu entry, it will be hidden
and can no longer be called.
Specifying the size and position of the on-screen keyboard
In "Position", you can dock the on-screen keyboard at the top or bottom edge of the screen.
In "Size", you select one of 5 predefined keyboard sizes.
Setting up a background image
Under "Background image", specify a graphic file to be displayed as the background image.

 The background image is always stretched to fit the screen resolution, even when this
distorts it and grossly enlarges it.
 Therefore, the background image should have exactly the same width x height as the
screen resolution, for example 1280 x 800, or at least the same proportions, for example
640 x 400.
Restoring the factory settings
The background image is restored.

Introduction
Additional, configurable application programs (software applications) can run on the
Industrial Thin Client. The web browser is currently the only application.
The following figure shows the web browser settings in the Start menu "Configuration >
Applications".
● If "Proxy" is selected: Enter the address of a central connection node in "Proxy" if your
network accesses the Internet from this connection node, e.g., in order to filter web
contents or make them available in the cache. In case of doubt contact your system
administrator.
● If "Configuration script" is selected: In "Configuration script", specify the address of a
script that picks out the appropriate proxy server for each web address. The configuration
script contains a JavaScript function with proxy specifications, e.g., for the case that a
server does not answer. The configuration script is provided by your network
administrator.
● For addresses that you enter in "No proxy for", there is no proxy server request, and a
direct connection to the Internet or an intranet will be established instead. Use a comma
to separate multiple addresses (see "Proxy bypass").

Introduction
RDP, "Remote Desktop Protocol", is a protocol that the Industrial Thin Client uses to access
a server with a Windows operating system, e.g., Windows Server or Windows XP. The
Industrial Thin Client can access all programs running on the server, if the programs have
been enabled for remote access. The following statements for Windows XP also apply to
Windows 7.
Licensing the Windows Server
You do not require any licenses on your device to access the server. You require the
following server licenses:
● One Windows Server license per server
● One Windows Server Client Access License (CAL) per user
● Additionally, one Terminal Server Client Access License (TS User CAL) per user that can
be used independent of the device
Note
TS Device CAL cannot be used
In the case of the "TS Device CAL" license, which can be used on a certain device
independently of the user, the device is logged onto the license server using the last four
digits of the MAC address. When you replace the device, the license is blocked by the
license server and released again after about 3 months.
User CAL and Device CAL licenses are supported for all approved Windows operating
systems.
Detailed information on licenses and applicable conditions of use are available on the
Internet under "Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server Licensing
(http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/techinfo/overview/termservlic.mspx)".

Licensing Windows XP Professional and Windows 7
You do not require any licenses on your device under Windows 7 to access the server. Only
one license on the PC for your operating system, e.g. Windows 7.
You do not require any additional licenses on the server for Remote Desktop. Only one
screen can be operated for Remote Desktop with the Windows XP Professional operating
systems. You can operate either the screen on the server or the touch screen on the device.
The other monitor is always blocked.

Requirements (Page 16)
6.1.2
Administration on the server
Administration Windows Server 2003 and 2008
The administration on the server depends on the individual IT infrastructure. Establish the
settings for the server configuration under the following menu commands under "Start >
Programs > Administrative Tools:"
● Terminal services configuration
● Terminal services administration
● Terminal services licensing
You will find more information on the Internet in the "MSDN Knowledge Base" of the
"Microsoft support (http://support.microsoft.com)".
You can specify on the server that certain users of the Industrial Thin Client can only access
specified programs on the server.
When the device is configured, you assign a password for the connection to the server. If the
device establishes a connection to the server, a password will be requested by default
irrespective of this. Under "Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Terminal Service
Configuration" you can specify that the password is not requested again.
Administration Windows XP Professional
The following statements for Windows XP also apply to Windows 7.
In order for the Industrial Thin Client to access the server, you must enable remote access
on the server. You can enable remote access under "Start > Settings > Control Panel >
System > Remote" with the option "Allow users to establish a remote desktop connection."
Use the "Select remote users" button to open a dialog in which you select the users that are
authorized to access the server.
In addition, you enable the server ports that have been set for remote access in the firewall.

6.2 VNC
Keyboard language with Windows XP Professional
A German-language on-screen keyboard and an English-language on-screen keyboard are
available on the device. Set the keyboard language on the device so that it matches the
keyboard language on the server. If the keyboard languages on the device and the server
are different, the keys pressed on the device keyboard will not be interpreted correctly on the
server.
Configuring double-click
If it is too difficult to double-click the touch screen with your finger or the touch stylus, then
make the setting in Windows Explorer on the server that files and folders should open with a
single click under "Tools > Folder options > General > Click items as follows".
You have the option to establish a greater range in which two clicks can be detected as a
double-click under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse] in the Windows registry
of the server. Under "DoubleClickHeight" and "DoubleClickWidth" enter 10 pixels, for
example.
6.2
VNC
Introduction
Use VNC for remote control of another computer via a network. VNC is the abbreviation for
"Virtual Network Computing" and shows the desktop of another computer. In contrast to RDP,
all clients display the same server screen.
Requirement
The operating system you use does not play a role because the software is available for all
current platforms. The connection via the network uses the TCP/IP protocol and should be
configured with a password for security reasons.
Layout
VNC works according to the client-server model. The program consists of the server module
VNC server and the client component VNC Viewer. The server program runs on the
computer whose screen outputs you want to monitor, whereas the clients receive the screen
outputs and in turn send keyboard and mouse inputs to the server.

6.3
Sm@rtServer
Introduction
With the SIMATIC WinCC Sm@rtServer option, HMI devices communicate with each other
via PROFINET. The WinCC option thus enables client/server configurations for distributed
operator stations in a plant.
If the SIMATIC WinCC Sm@rtServer option is installed on an HMI device, for example, on
an MP 377 or Comfort Panel, the Industrial Thin Client can access the running project via
Ethernet. In this case, the HMI device is the server. The Industrial Thin Client is a client.
A description of the Sm@rtServer configuration can be found in the online help of WinCC or
in the "WinCC Getting Started Options" manual.
Sm@rtServer-capable HMI devices
The SIMATIC WinCC Sm@rtServer option can be used for all HMI devices as of device
class 177B PN. You can refer to the documentation of your HMI device regarding the
number of clients that are possible with an HMI device that is used as a server.
Licensing
You do not require any licenses on the Industrial Thin Client in order to access an HMI
device. The licenses are included in the SIMATIC WinCC Sm@rtServer option. The
Sm@rtServer license must be installed on the HMI device you are accessing with the Thin
Client.

SINUMERIK
Introduction
The DHCP server is enabled on each SINUMERIK server by default. The SINUMERIK
system network therefore configures itself dynamically via the DHCP protocol. Additional
information is available in the "SINUMERIK manual "Operator components and networking"
(6FC5397-1AP10-5AA0) (http://www.automation.siemens.com/doconweb/)".
USB stick for commissioning
You use a button on the HMI user interface of the SINUMERIK TCU to access the USB port
on the rear of the device. For example, you read in the series startup files on the
SINUMERIK USB stick. A maximum of one USB storage device is accessed which is
recognized first.
Note
Security threat to the system
The USB may infect the server with viruses, Trojans, spam, etc.
Use a suitable virus scanner to check the data on the USB storage medium or disable the
HMI button for access via USB.
The USB port is only available if you make the following settings for the corresponding
button in the SINUMERIK menu "Commission > HMI > Logical drive":
● "Type" = "USB local"
● "Connection" = "X204"
Keyboard language with external keyboard
CAUTION
Damage to the machine or plant through operating error
The set system language, for example German, also determines the keyboard language of
the externally connected USB keyboard. If you then connect an English keyboard, however,
such as is the case with a SINUMERIK connection, the keys do not have the same
meaning as is printed on them.
This may result in operating errors at the machine and personal injury or damage to the
machine or plant. To connect an English keyboard, set the system language to English
under "Language" in the Start menu "Configuration > System".

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.
NOTICE
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.
The material with which this person comes into contact is of particular significance. The
figure shows the maximum electrostatic voltages with which a person is charged, depending
on humidity and material. These values conform to the specifications of IEC 61000-4-2.

NOTICE
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.

Glossary
Browser
A browser is a computer program that is used to start Web sites in the Internet.
Client-server system
A client/server system is a network structure in which the resources are offered by a central
server that the workstations (clients) can access.
Degree of protection
The degree of protection specifies the suitability of electronic equipment for a variety of
ambient conditions – and the protection of persons against potential danger when using this
equipment.
The degree of protection specified 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.
Domain Name System (DNS)
The DNS is a service in the Internet that converts domain names into IP addresses.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
DHCP enables dynamic assignment of an IP address and additional configuration
parameters to computers in a network, via an appropriate server.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (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.
EMC
Electromagnetic compatibility is the ability of electrical equipment to function properly in its
electromagnetic environment without influencing this environment.

enables data transfer in the form of data frames between all devices that are connected in a
local area network, for example, computers, printers.
HMI device
An HMI device is a device used for the operation and monitoring of machines and plants.
The statuses of the machine or plant are indicated by means of graphic elements or by
indicator lamps on the HMI device. The operator controls of the HMI device allow the
operator to interact with the processes of the machine or plant.
Plant
General term referring to machines, processing centers, systems, plants and processes
which are operated and monitored on an HMI device.
PLC
A PLC is a general term for devices and systems with which the HMI device communicates,
for example, SIMATIC S7.
Process visualization
Visualization of technical processes by means of text and graphic elements. Configured
plant screens allow operator intervention in active plant processes by means of the input and
output data.
PROFINET
PROFINET is a standard for an industrial Ethernet in automation systems.
Project
Result of a configuration using a configuration software. The project normally contains
several screens with embedded system-specific objects, basic settings and alarms. The
project is transferred to an HMI device and monitored and operated with the HMI device.
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.

Glossary
Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)
RDP enables network access to applications that are executed on a Windows Terminal
Server. In this process the RDP regulates transmission of screen content and keyboard and
mouse inputs over the network.
Screen
Form of the visualization of all logically related process data for a plant. The visualization of
the process data can be supported by graphic objects.
Sm@rtAccess/Sm@rtServer
The Sm@rtAccess option from SIMATIC WinCC flexible 2008 and the Sm@rtServer option
from SIMATIC WinCC V11 (TIA Portal) enables communication between HMI systems
based on Ethernet networks or via the Intranet/Internet. This enables an HMI device to be
monitored and remotely controlled by another HMI device.
Virtual Network Computing (VNC)
VNC enables network access to applications that are executed on a remote computer
regardless of the platform. In this process the VNC controls transmission of screen content
and keyboard and mouse inputs over the network.
