The new versions are the Simatic Panel PC IPC277E with 15 and 19 inch displays, and the Simatic Panel PC IPC477E and Simatic Flat Panel IFP monitors with 15, 19 and 22 inch displays. The new, slimline design Human Machine Interface (HMI) devices, with a full glass front and brilliant imaging, are used on series and special machine, as well as in plant engineering for modern operating concepts. These are increasingly based on intuitive, efficient single and multi-finger, gesture or two-hands operation on multi-touch and widescreen devices. The new Simatic monitors and Panel PCs are equipped with projected capacitive touch technology, and are specifically designed for industrial applications.

They support numerous practical functions, for example the Favourites selection for fast navigation, zooming in a plant image, measured value control, and scrolling through lists of alarms and messages. They also automatically detect operating errors, such as inadvertent heel-of-hand contact, drops of water on or cleaning of the display.
