Human Machine Interface (HMI)

HMI, swing arm mounted

Armed for any application

In the field of factory automation, operator panels are increasingly being mounted on swing arms. The advantages are clear: They are much more flexible than their cabinet-mounted counterparts with regard to placement and positioning and allow operators to keep an  eye on the production process at all times. B&R's latest generation of swing arm HMI – the Automation Panel 5000 – sets new standards in versatility and modularity.

Multi-touch HMI range expanded with 11.6-inch widescreen panel

High degree of scalability, with nine display sizes for Panel PCs and Control Panels

The Beckhoff CP2xxx and CP3xxx multi-touch panel series now include 11.6-inch versions with a high resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. 

With its comprehensive range of Control Panels and Panel PCs, Beckhoff provides the optimum product portfolio to address all multi-touch HMI needs. These devices offer a solution for complete machines or systems, in an integrated and customisable manner, and provide a top quality look and feel. The new 11.6-inch widescreen display format offers increased scalability in the range of compact HMI devices.

Compact 7-inch HMI and all-in-one controller

CP6606 Built-in Panel PC with ARM CortexTM A8 CPU for cost-sensitive applications

The CP6606 Built-in Panel PC is ideally suited for use as a compact Control Panel for cost-sensitive applications.

The CP6606 ‘Economy’ Panel PC is ideally suited to the requirements of machine builders and manufacturers in cost-sensitive market segments. The all-in-one compact controller combines a TFT touch display (800 x 480 WVGA) in 7 inch format with a powerful 1 GHz ARM Cortex™ A8 CPU and 1 GB DDR3 RAM.

Mobile control solutions-HMI using CANopen bus technology

Avalon has recently commenced development on CANopen bus technology. A state-of-theart HMI device with touch screen interface & 10.4” TFT colour graphic display is used. The HMI comes with many features viz., a VGA (640x480 pixel) resolution with 64K colours screen; USB, Ethernet & CANopen interface; a video input module; inbuilt flash dreive; multi-language support; display data in numerical, text, bar-graph, analog gauges and graphic image formats; data logging and eight level password protection makes it an ideal choice for control application. The application are being developed using CoDeSys (controller Development System) which is today’s most comprehensive software tool for industrial automation technology.
