First choice for efficient operation and monitoring
SIMATIC HMI Panels have been tried and tested in the
most various applications throughout all sectors for
years. They not only feature an innovative design and
high performance – as a unique highlight, they can be
configured via SIMATIC WinCC in the TIA Portal. Users can
thus benefit from unprecedented engineering efficiency.
Integrated functionality across all display sizes
The hardware’s functionality is identical throughout a
device range. Simply select the optimum display size for
your application and choose between operation via touch
screen and/or keys. As the software is scalable, you can
start with a small solution and further expand it any time
as required – for example by increasing the number of tags
or variables.
Innovative graphical user interfaces open up completely
new possibilities in terms of intuitive operation and monitoring.
Unique engineering efficiency
SIMATIC HMI Panels can be intuitively configured in the
TIA Portal via the scalable SIMATIC WinCC software. This
results in increased engineering efficiency when further
components from the Totally Integrated Automation
portfolio are used – e.g. SIMATIC controllers. The perfect
interaction with STEP 7 does away with multiple entries
and ensures maximum data consistency.
Long-term value maintenance
SIMATIC products facilitate long-term investment protection.
Existing projects can be easily and directly migrated to
the successor product. Following the phase-out period of
a model range, we support you with long-term spare parts
availability. Moreover, the matching accessories for each
product are available throughout the entire product lifecycle.

HMI Panels
Comfort Panels
First choice for
demanding HMI tasks
Various display sizes – identical functionality
Efficient energy management
All SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels consistently offer the
same high-end functionality. Featuring high-resolution
wide-screen displays from 4“ to 22“, optionally with touch
or key operation, they can be optimally adjusted to any
application. Furthermore, they offer numerous innovations:
The standardized PROFIenergy protocol supports
the coordinated central disconnection of redundant
energy loads and the detection of measured energy
values. This facilitates disconnection of the Comfort
Panels’ displays even during short break times for reduced
energy consumption. PROFINET as a standard facilitates
easy integration in existing plant structures and offers
high investment protection.
Flexible high-resolution displays
With up to 40% more visualization space, the widescreen format offers extended display options for
complex operating screens – and a clear differentiation
between application monitoring and operation. The
high resolution with 16 million colors facilitates detailed
process visualization and optimum readability. Together
with the wide reading angle of 170°, this ensures optimum readability. The displays’ high brightness is 100 %
dimmable to allow for optimum adjustability to individual
requirements – this is for example important for applications
on ships and ensures reduced energy consumption.
New innovative graphical user interface
A new, innovative graphical user interface opens up
completely new possibilities in terms of intuitive machine
operation and monitoring.
Integrated high-end functionality
SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels are characterized by their
high performance which amongst others ensures rapid
image build. Irrespective of the display size, all devices
offer archives, VB scripts and various viewers for the
display of plant documentation (e.g. as PDF) and Internet
websites. The system diagnostics options in interaction
with SIMATIC controllers represent an innovation.
Diagnostics information which could previously only be
obtained via programming device can now be read out
via the Comfort Panel.
* To fully ensure the retention of individual, not yet archived data,
the use of an uninterruptible power supply unit is recommended
Maximum data security if power fails
In case of a power failure, Comfort Panels buffer
sufficient energy to correctly terminate all active archives
and to back up the data already archived in RDB format.
This ensures the retention of all data in the archive
in a cost-efficient manner and without the use of a
maintenance-intensive battery.*
Suitability for harsh environments
The rugged SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels come with
numerous approvals for application in various countries
and for use in sectors subject to increased requirements.
From 7“ upward, the devices are equipped with particularly
durable aluminum die-cast fronts. All Comfort Panels are
approved for application in explosive areas in accordance
with UL CL.I, Div.2. Furthermore, devices up to 12“ are
certified for Zones 2 and 22 in accordance with ATEX and
offer various marine approvals such as GL or ABS.
Integrated interfaces
SIMATIC HMI Comfort Panels are suitable for integration in
PROFINET and PROFIBUS networks and feature interfaces
for the connection of USB I/O. From 7“ upwards, the
devices come with a 2-port Ethernet switch and from 15“
upwards with an additional Gigabit PROFINET interface.
Eased project transfer
Standard cables can be used for loading HMI projects
via PROFINET / Ethernet or USB – no special cables are
required. Device settings are made during configuration,
additional settings on the device itself are done away
with. This ensures eased commissioning. The project data
and device settings are saved to a system card integrated
in the device and automatically updated. The system card
can be used for project transfer to a further device.
New: Monitoring with network cameras
The download option plant monitoring via network
camera and camera control allows for:
• Monitoring of multiple remote processes on
the Comfort Panel
• Monitoring of difficult-to-access areas
• Documentation and saving of machine states
Camera control download via:
Printing and documentation
• Paperless printing in PDF / HTML format
• Screenshots for rapid documentation
• Archiving of process values and reports
Extremely flexible for any outdoor application
For extreme ambient conditions, e.g. in cold storage
warehouses, on ships or in oil and gas applications,
SIMATIC HMI Outdoor Panels are in preparation. They
• Rugged and durable UV-protected device front (IP65)
• Non-reflecting 7- und 15-inch wide-screen displays with
automatic dimming for use in all light conditions

and easier creation of your visualization than ever before.
Using the innovative Style Editor, the operating screens
can now both be configured for stationary as well as
mobile applications. The user selects the new Mobile
Panel and creates its configuration, incl. the specific
functions for mobile application such as connection
point detection or safety operator control evaluation.
• Flexible evaluation option for safety operator controls
Performance and brilliance for mobile high-end
The Mobile Panels’ high performance and high-end
functionality allow for the realization of demanding
mobile applications. The 7” or 9” wide-screen display
is 100% infinitely dimmable and can be adjusted to
various environments. It offers razor-sharp, bright and
detailed images in 16 million colors and also supports
the representation of complex operating screens or
graphics due to its 40% increased display size.
On the safe side – with safety
The Mobile Panels can be configured for alternation of
the corresponding user interface according to connection
point. Machine-specific HMI authorizations or actions can
be realized independently of the selected connection
point via the connection box ID. PROFINET connection
boxes can be connected in series via integrated switches.
• Permanently wired safety relays (e.g. SIRIUS 3SK1)

• Connection point detection for location-dependent
operator functions
• Extended connection options through connection
boxes (compact, standard, advanced)
Compact connection option
The new connection box compact requires only one
third the space of the normal connection box. It is
simply screwed onto the control cabinet door’s outside
and then completely wired from the inside. It can be
virtually accommodated anywhere on the machine or
plant, thanks to which connections for the Mobile Panels
can always be installed at the ideal position for the operator.

Key Panels
Innovative operator panels
for up to 60 % time savings
in terms of mounting
The compact SIMATIC HMI Key Panels replace
conventional operator panels at a way more costfavorable price. Thanks to the devices’ turnkey
pre-assembly, they support time savings of up to
60 % in terms of mounting.
Flexible mounting and service
