The convenience that comes with a portable HMI is very valuable. HMI combines all the control features that are typically found throughout the automation line and places them in one centralized location, eliminating the need to run to a red pushbutton that will stop your line in an emergency. Not only does it provide convenience, but with remote access, the operator does not need to be anywhere near the automation line to start/stop or monitor production.
HMIs come in a variety of forms, from built-in screens on machines, to computer monitors, to tablets, but regardless of their format or which term you use to refer to them, their purpose is to provide insight into mechanical performance and progress.
Track production time, trends, and tags
Monitor machine inputs and outputs
Human-machine interfaces are used for myriad applications across manufacturing, automotive, processing, and other industries, such as:
Oil and gas
Who Uses HMI?
HMI technology is used by almost all industrial organizations of all sizes, as well as a wide range of different companies.
Examples of Industries using HMI include:
Food and beverage
Oil and gas
Water and wastewater
Atvise is the only pure web based HMI technology available today. The advantage for clients means HMI’s can be viewed on any device, whether mobile, desktop or tablet, and all that is required is a web browser.
This means no time consuming client installation setup is required, the benefits of which are no licensing costs for each client and easy distribution of HMI systems across a plant or site.
Because atvise uses web based technology, development time is reduced drastically. This is due to the objected orientated drag and drop development environment which allows for visualisations to be created and deployed rapidly.
Atvise also takes advantage of SVG graphics which allows for better visual effects, loss free scaling for all resolutions and high performance. (1,5x faster than similar proprietary systems)
Developers can also create dynamic visualisations with atvise, because animations and rich graphics can easily be included into any visualisations, which offers a more realistic representation of how a process can be achieved.
Historians are normally a significant additional expense when purchasing a HMI solution, but this is not the case with atvise.
A historian comes included with atvise and will allow storage for an unlimited number of tags at a resolution of 0.25 seconds, aggregate storage is also possible.
