Automation – SIMATIC HMI


Human Machine Interface: SIMATIC HMI – Efficient to a new level

As a single-source provider, Siemens’ human machine interface technology SIMATIC HMI is engineered to meet the increasingly complex processes of your machines and systems. SIMATIC HMI is optimized to meet your specific human machine interface needs using open and standardized interfaces in hardware and software, which allow efficient integration into your automation systems.

Basic HMI

Basic HMI recommended for simple applications with a limited quantity scale and where the price-performance ratio is important in addition to a fast and intuitive operation. Devices can be easily configured using the WinCC Basic Engineering Software, a budget priced subset of WinCC (TIA Portal).

Advanced HMI PC-based

SIMATIC HMI Advanced – efficient realization of even the most demanding and complex HMI tasks

The most complex visualization and control tasks can be realized centrally on the machine with extremely compact industrial panel PCs. From embedded to the high-end industrial PCs, you can find optimum solutions in the Advanced HMI portfolio to meet the many requirements of your automation system.


Greater emphasis on individuality:

  • Brilliant widescreen displays from 7” to 22” with innovative single- or multi-touch technology
  • High-performance processors and fast, robust mass storage (SSD, CFast)
  • A variety of interfaces and configurations
  • High quality and serviceability

A PC-based system is recommended if the production places particularly high demands on the quantity and type of information to be processed and documented. It offers the appropriate options for sufficient storage space, processor performance and data connection. The user can either opt for a centralized solution in which the visualization and PC are combined in a single unit, or for a distributed solution with an industrial monitor as thin client.
