Powerful Device for Automation Applications


The new Simatic Field PG M programming device from Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) stands out for its wireless technology, powerful Intel Pentium M processor, large 15" display in XGA or SXGA+ resolution, and integral data backup.

The new device also has a long rechargeable battery operation time, high-speed working memory and all the usual interfaces for industrial applications. The Field PG M in notebook format is used for configuring, start-up, service and maintenance of automation installations. The rugged die-cast magnesium housing withstands the harshest of day-to-day environments in the automation industry.

The wireless communication is based on the WLAN standards 802.11 a, b and g. In the manufacturing environment, Industrial WLAN is used to guarantee a secure connection to the programmable controller at all times. The 915-GM chipset and Intel Pentium M processor as well as the serial ATA hard disk and 533MHz DDR2-RAM offer sufficient performance reserves even for demanding applications. At 15", the new Field PG M's display is the largest in the family of Simatic industrial notebooks. A maximum of 1400x1050 pixels provide high-resolution display of the Simatic Engineering Software installed on the devices. The integral data backup generates an automatic backup in defined cycles. The backed-up information is available at all times and can be loaded without effort.

The new hardware components use a minimum of power, so the lithium ion storage battery guarantees operation for up to four hours. The new Field PG M is the only Simatic notebook to integrate all the interfaces required for automation directly in the device. In addition to the rugged die-cast magnesium housing, metal-plated plastic parts on the inside of the housing protect against electromagnetic interference.
