Human Machine Interface is simply the process of interference between human or the user of the device and machine. It controls and gives signal to the automation equipment mainly through electronics. In the current world, HMI is very common in all devices from iPhone to nuclear power plants this interface it widely spread around the world. When it comes to the business world it gives most of the benefits of the manufacturing process. Especially this has to be resistant to water, moisture, dust or strong chemicals.
What are the types of HMI?
In day to day world, we have 3 main simple types of HMI systems which VackerGlobal offers.
Push button replacer
This type mainly used during the old time before HMI come into the world all systems are used with human operating systems using hundreds and thousands of pushbuttons and LEDs. So once the HMI come into existence it modernized as Pushbutton replacer HMI and unified all the buttons into one central location.
This is mainly beneficial for the data analyzing, graphical representations, and data summarising functions at the companies. For production floor reports and continuous feedback report systems, this interface commonly used.
This is the most advanced interface system. This is most frequently used to run the windows or other Ethernet systems. Click to read more on SCADA systems.
How to select the most suitable HMI?
When customer wants to select a HMI the most important thing is the user has to be confident with for which purpose are they using the system and based on the purpose our VackerGlobal specialised engineers can decide which type is suitable for the requirement and according to our team is ready to help you with the technical support.
Features of HMI are different from manufacturer to manufacturer and model by model. For example, if a customer wants to use the HMI in water plantation the system will come with the features like water seals and water resistance systems and its different from the warehouse HMI system. So all the things will depend on the requirement and once a customer reveals the requirements to our team they will request all the best suitable devices for the customer for a competitive price range. Basically, the size of the device is based on the premises, protection and safety methods. Based on the application usage and preferred color of the system customer can decide with the help of our team.
And also another important thing is the physical features of the system. Which processes customer prefers and the capacity of the device all will be based on the application which they will plan to use the interface for. If it is for a production warehouse with the process of too many functions and on-going tasks then more featured large screen, high resolution HMI will be needed and if the requirement is for home usage device then a small featured HMI will be enough with required colour and shape as customer preferred.
HMI is consisting of all the components, for example, if we consider a production warehouse there are various types of machinery which help to complete the raw material to complete product. Then there are sensors mainly for measuring the speed, temperature level, weight and also (programmable logic controller) PLC are used in the production chain it receives data through sensors and process it to logical arrangements.
The greatest benefit of HMI automation is the work-life is becoming easy and the systems are very user-friendly because of the graphical interface. It includes colors for easy identification, icons, and pictures to make the operating process easy. And also it reduces the production cost along with high capacity performance and as a result of that automatically profit margin will be high for companies with high-end output.
We, VackerGlobal is ready to help and what you have to do it just to reveal your requirements to our team.
