Human machine interface, HMI

Human machine interface

The HMI – Human Machine Interface is usually the first element of the interface between human and machine. In this area, it is very important to understand the operation’s activities in order to design understandable and intuitive screens and graphics. The common difficulty in this element is a limited screen space 6 “, 10” or 12 “. HMI is to facilitate the work of the operator, not complicate it. Therefore we put on a simple and clear infographics and clear state of devices. The solutions we mainly use on machines and small lines, or for use only local devices. Thanks to the possibilities of software tools, we can create own templates of objects and reuse them repeatedly.

SIEMENS
We try to use the same manufacturers as for PLC:

  • Allen Bradley
  • Siemens
  • Proface
  • Beckhoff

The advantage of this approach is the ability to achieve a higher degree of integration of the created software.
