Analyst Comment

Different Siemens sources gave different versions of the spec, with one release highlight maximum memory of 16GB and up to 512GB of SSD.

We also saw a report from Asia that Siemens has released new Simatic flat panel monitors as well as some new ‘Panel PCs’. The monitors are available in 15″, 19″ and 22″ sizes with PCap touch. However, we were unable to find recent information and the products were released in 2013, so we think that this was just a regional release. (BR)
