Simple

With Fortum Virtual Panels, you have no need for dozens or hundreds of expensive mechanical components in your simulator HMI, and reconfiguration of a panel section is deployed in seconds, without the need of manual rearrangement of mosaic tiles.

Increased efficiency
Easily Configured

Virtual Panels can freely be configured to match any control panels at your plant. They are easily connected to Apros® or other process simulation platforms.
