Reistance to chemicals
Caution
The panel of the control unit is only partially resistant to chemicals. More information is
available in the internet at "www.ad.siemens.de" under the heading "Products & Solutions."
Click on "Service & Support" under "Services" and look for the article-ID "16532108" on the
"Product Support" page. The desired article about chemical resistance will be displayed.
Sources of light
Notice
Position the screen so that it is not subject to direct sunlight or other strong sources of light.
Faulty 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 faulty pixels in the display, is therefore
unavoidable. This does not present a functional problem as long as the faulty pixels are not
bunched in one location.
For additional information, refer to the technical data.
TFT-LC display
A permanent picture with bright images can lead to a burn-in effect on the 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 tubes: Each
time the backlighting is turned on, its life is reduced by 50 minutes.
Consider the following carefully:
• Use of a screen saver
• Turn off the backlighting regularly
• Permanent display of the customer application

6.2 Connecting a decentralized design
Equipotential bonding requirements
Reduce the differences in potential by laying the equipotential bonding cables in such a way
that the affected electronic components function perfectly. Please comply with the following
guidelines when setting up equipotential bonding:
• The lower the impedance of the equipotential bonding cable, the greater the effectiveness
of the equipotential bonding.
• When two system parts are connected by means of a shielded signal cable, and their
shields are both connected to the ground or protected conductor, the following must be
observed: The impedance of the additonal equipotential bonding cable amounts to 10 %
of the shield impedance, at the most.
• Make sure that the diameter of the equipotential bonding cable is proportional to the
maximum equalization current. Equipotential bonding cables with a 16 mm diameter have
proven themselves in practice. 2.
• Use equipotential bonding cables made of copper or galvanized steel. Connect the
cables extensively with the ground or protective conductor. Protect the ground or
protective conductor from corrosion.
• Lay the equipotential bonding cable in such a way that the area between the equipotential
bonding cable and signal cables is as small as possible.

ESD guideline
What ESD means
Almost all electronic modules are equipped with highly integrated components and elements
in MOS technology. Due to their their technology, these electronic components are
extremely sensitive to power surges and also to discharges of static electricity. These
components are therefore marked as follows:
• ESD:components suceptible to ElectroStatic Discharge
• ESD: internationally recognized marking for components and modules susceptible to
electrostatic discharge

Appendix
11.1 Certificates and guidelines
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. Such voltage can occur even when components or modules are touched by a
person who is not charged with electrostatic energy. 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 label. The rating label is described in the chapter
"Planning use."
Protective measures against electrostatic charging
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 electrostaic charge away
from your body by touching the mounting plate for the interfaces, for example.
Handling modules susceptible to electrostatic discharge
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.
Discharge your body before touching ESD components. Touch a conductive object
immediately beforehand, e.g. a bare metal part of a switch 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.

Appendix
11.1 Certificates and guidelines
Measuring and changing ESD modules
Measure the ESD component under the following conditions only:
• The measuring device is grounded with a protective conductor, for example.
• The probe on the potential-free measuring device has been discharged, e.g. by touching
the bare metal of a part of the switch cabinet.
• Your body is discharged. To do so, touch a grounded metallic component.
Solder only with grounded soldering irons.
Shipping modules susceptible to electrostatic discharge
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.
