Human-Machine Interface (HMI) software is used to provide a graphical user interface (GUI) for industrial automation machines and equipment.Why Choose Orases?
HMI software is an essential tool used to interact with highly sophisticated pieces of industrial equipment. It presents users with a graphically intuitive user interface that makes controlling these devices easier, as well as both inputting and outputting functions. HMI software can be implemented on HMI hardware, PCs, mobile phones, and wearables alike.
Unique & Key Features Of HMI Software
With a custom-developed HMI system, you can map out implementation in terms of both time and budget from the get-go. Here are the unique features of HMI software:Gain Unlimited Flexibility For Improved Processes
When it comes to data access, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. By utilizing the concept of roles, permissions for viewing and manipulating data can be varied according to user needs. In addition, even when monitoring tools are set up with unrestricted access rights, certain pieces of highly sensitive information will be sanitized from displays, ensuring only those with the appropriate authorization level may view it.
The ability to activate machines through a single action is the cornerstone of what we call “Inputting of Information”. Furthermore, with a singular command custom sequence of actions can be initiated – often referred to as ‘Recipes’.
To enhance the functionality of workflow tracking, there are two features designed to make the system easier to use: real-time animation of processes and automated status change responses. Visually represent operations being carried out with on-screen visuals, along with notifications sent through multiple channels such as sound effects, emails, and error log entries.
The dashboard can be personalized, giving machinery operators the option to select the tools they need and arrange their virtual workspaces according to their preferences.
The Benefits Of Using Custom HMI Software
Transitioning from outdated manual systems to cutting-edge digital, cloud-based control networks, machine-level HMI programming provides a broad range of advantages
Ease of Use
Considering the simplicity of an electronic device running an HMI software panel compared to the complexity of conventional machinery containing various buttons, levers, switches, dials, computer keyboards, LED lights, and gauges, it quickly becomes clear that HMI programming is much easier for operators to learn and use.
HMI programming provides a single platform that combines the control and monitoring features of machinery (or group of devices) in an accessible dashboard. Instead of an operator having to move from one location to another to reach various control boards, the use of HMI programming simplifies the process and saves time.
Improved Quality Control
Executives and owners of modern offices are heavily reliant on machines for uncompromising quality. HMI programming has acted as an administrative system to make these machines more reliable by providing constant access to data from sensors and cameras within the machine. IoT sensors can transfer the data to the cloud, and the HMI screen displays this data. This gathered data can be used as a part of a proactive maintenance plan to repair issues before they lead to the machine’s malfunctioning.
A range of cost and fee reductions can be attributed to the use of HMI programming. Primarily, these consist of upkeep and training of staff, as the intuitive UI makes them easier to learn and retrain than complex control panels. Additionally, machine malfunction and downtime are likely to be reduced due to the increased hardware reliability and ability to utilize preventive maintenance tactics.
Less Human Error
Poor administrative practices can lead to dangerous health and safety risks, incur expensive repairs, and damage system capabilities. HIM technology minimizes the chances of administrator errors by automating control systems or canceling certain procedures if a mistake is made. Its convenience also makes it less likely that errors will occur in the first place, and warnings are more likely to be noticed.
