The Siemens Industry Automation Division has equipped the latest generation of its rugged and ready-to-run industrial notebooks with a multitude of practical functions for mobile engineering. Simatic Field PG M4, with up to 16 GB of RAM, is fitted with wireless, Bluetooth and Intel Core i5/i7 processor technology and offers a brilliant, high-resolution 300 candela 15.6" full-HD widescreen display, as well as a powerful battery with an operating time of about five hours, sophisticated battery management with smart phone charging concept when switched off, and a compact threepin power adapter. The portable device with retractable handle, removable hard-disk and integrated data backup concept has all the established Simatic S5 and S7 interfaces for industrial applications on board. Simatic Field PG M4 is delivered with preinstalled Simatic engineering software for controllers and the human machine interface (HMI) and is therefore ready to run for mobile use in configuring, commissioning, service and maintenance of automation systems.
Thanks to its specially selected materials, Simatic Field PG M4 is suitable for use in hostile industrial environments. The lightweight, robust and fully shielded cast magnesium housing offers protection against electromagnetic interference. Impact-absorbing elements on exposed parts of the casing protect against shocks and vibrations, while the stable, retractable carry handle provides a secure grip for mobile use. The keyboard is dirt-resistant with abrasion-proof, laser-cut key labeling. Integrated data security functions, WoL (Wake on LAN) and iAMT (Intel’s Active Management Technology) increase the level of security when using the hard disk and simplify
remote administration of the device.
