The new Simatic monitors and panel PCs are suitable for use in hygienic production areas, such as in the food industry, and also meet the requirements of the chemical, oil and gas industries.
The new stainless steel Simatic Inox Pro devices have the high IP66K degree of protection, and are suitable for use in hygienic production areas in the food and tobacco, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and fine chemical industries. The devices have an analog-resistive 19-inch touch display covered by a contiguous, chemically resistant decorative foil, and also have food grade seals and splinter protection for the display. The stainless steel enclosure is ground with a 240 grain size, which produces a surface smooth enough to protect against contamination.

All new devices can be mounted on a stand or a jointed arm.
