graded according to the degree of danger.
Danger
indicates that death or severe personal injury will result if proper precautions are not taken.
Warning
indicates that death or severe personal injury may result if proper precautions are not taken.
Caution
with a safety alert symbol, indicates that minor personal injury can result if proper precautions are not taken.
Caution
without a safety alert symbol, indicates that property damage can result if proper precautions are not taken.
Notice
indicates that an unintended result or situation can occur if the corresponding information is not taken into
account.
If more than one degree of danger is present, the warning notice representing the highest degree of danger will
be used. A notice warning of injury to persons with a safety alert symbol may also include a warning relating to
property damage.

Safety instructions
Caution
In order to avoid substantial damage and for your own safety, note the safety instructions in
this documentation and in the operating instructions.
Warning
Function test while installing the device in machines or execute systems
Following the results of a risk analysis, additional protection equipment on the machine or
the system is necessary to avoid endangering persons. With this, especially the
programming, configuration and wiring of the inserted I/O modules have to be executed, in
accordance with the safety performance (SIL, PL or Cat.) identified by the necessary risk
analysis. The intended use of the device has to be ensured.
The proper use of the device has to be verified with a function test on the system. This test
can detect programming, configuration and wiring errors. The test results have to be
documented and, if necessary, entered into the relevant documents that verify safety.

Note
Use of USB devices
• Wait at least 10 seconds between the unplugging and replugging of USB devices. This
also applies in particular to touch control in control units with touch screen panels.
• When using standard USB peripherals, bear in mind that their EMC immunity level is
frequently designed for office applications only. These devices may be used for
commissioning and servicing. However, only industry-standard devices are allowed for
industrial operation.
• Peripherals are developed and marketed by individual vendors. The respective
manufacturers offer support for the peripherals. Moreover, the terms of liability of the
individual vendors or suppliers apply here.

Connecting the 100 V to 240 V AC power supply
General connection information
Note the following in order to operate the device safely and according to regulation:
Note
Voltage range
The power supply module is designed for operation on 100 to 240 V AC networks. The
device adjusts automatically to the voltage.
Notice
Risk of damage
Do not connect or disconnect power and data cables during thunderstorms.
Notice
Power supply network
The device is designed for operation on grounded power supply networks (TN systems to
VDE 0100, Part 300, or IEC 60364-3).
It is not permissible for operation on ungrounded or impedance-grounded power networks
(IT networks).
Notice
Permitted mains voltage
The local rated voltage must be within the voltage range of the device.
Notice
Power disconnection
The built-in switch does not disconnect the device from mains. The mains connector on the
device must be disconnected to fully isolate the device from mains. The mains connector
must be easily accessible.
If this cannot be guaranteed, in cabinet installation, for example, or the mains connector
clamp is used, an easily accessible power switch must be built into the device.

1.6 Connecting
Power Factor Correction
The power supply contains an active PFC (Power Factor Correction) circuit to conform to the
EMC guidelines.
Uninterruptible AC power systems (UPS) must supply a sinusoidal output voltage in the
normal and buffered mode when used with SIMATIC PCs with an active PFC.
UPS characteristics are described and classified in the standards EN 50091-3 and IEC
62040-3. Devices with sinusoidal output voltage in the normal and buffered mode are
identified with the classification “VFI-SS-....” or “VI-SS-....”.
Notice
Risk of damage
Operation of the device on a non-sinusoidal mains voltage can cause damage to the power
supply unit.
Country-specific connection information
For the USA and Canada
A UL-listed power supply cable must be used in the United States and Canada.
Power cables are provided as an accessory for the specific country of delivery.
• 120 V supply voltage
Use a flexible power cable with UL approval and the following features: Type SJT with
three leads, min. 18 AWG conductor cross-section, max. 4.5 m long and parallel 15 A
ground contact connector, minimum rating 125 V.
• 230 V supply voltage
Use a flexible power cable with UL approval and the following features: Type SJT with
three leads, min. 18 AWG conductor cross-section, max. 4.5 m long and tandem 15 A
ground contact connector, minimum rating 250 V.
For countries other than the USA and Canada

General connection information
Note the following in order to operate the device safely and according to regulation:
Notice
Power supply
The device must only be connected to 24 V DC power supply systems or 24 V DC power
supplies which meet the requirements of a safe extra-low voltage (SELV).
Use the supplied connector to connect it to the supply voltage.
Notice
Connecting the protective conductor
A protective conductor must be connected to the device. The conductors must withstand the
short-circuit current of the 24 V DC power source, so that a short-circuit will not damage the
cable. You may use cables with a cross section of 5 mm2.
Connecting the power supply
Steps for connecting the device to the 24 V DC power supply

KeyTools (for key panel devices only)
SIMATIC KeyTools is one selection of the applications for your Panel PC. These applications
allow you to adapt key codes that are sent by the key panel of the control unit. SIMATIC
KeyTools consists of the following applications:
• Key code table: Loading and editing of key code tables
• WinCC hotkey function: WinCC hotkey function activation and deactivation
• Security features: Lock function that prevents two function keys from being activated
simultaneously. This prevents incorrect operations and undefined states of the user
program.
Note
