Human-machine interface (HMI) refers to the interaction between humans and machines in an automated manufacturing environment.
HMIs are used to monitor and control the various processes involved in manufacturing, such as production lines, machinery, and equipment.
The goal of HMIs is to provide operators with the necessary information to make informed decisions about the manufacturing process, ensuring optimal efficiency, productivity, and quality.
Our HMI system solutions are the answer to increasing complexity, diversity, and cost efficiency.
Our service profile covers all stages from the initial idea to delivery and commissioning.
Our know-how enables us to use all available operating technologies. This ranges from a simple touch panel in housing to complex, multi-part systems that meet requirements such as EX protection, the highest IP and IK degrees of protection, lighting, or integrated NFC functionality. Learn more
Touch panels are a type of human-machine interface (HMI) that use touch-sensitive screens to control and monitor industrial processes.
Touch panels can provide real-time feedback, status updates, and alarms to operators, allowing them to quickly respond to changes in the manufacturing process.
Touch panels can also be customized to meet specific industrial requirements, such as resistance to harsh environments, anti-glare coatings, and explosion-proof certifications.
Touch panels are used in a variety of industrial applications, such as control panels, machinery interfaces, and operator stations. Learn more
Touch-free operations – this is possible with the optical switch.
The switch is based on an optical proximity sensor. Compared to its rivals, optical barriers or two-dimensional infra-red fields, it has both a technical and an infrastructural advantage, as only one component is needed.
The switching process takes place in three phases: standby, proximity, and activation.
The switch uses 9 – 24 V DC power. It has four contact pins, two for the supply voltage and two potential-free contacts, acting as opening and closing switches. Learn more
Capacitive keypads and switches use individual sensors that form electric fields and act like capacitor plates.
In contrast to touch screen systems, where the controls are displayed graphically via a monitor, this technology involves delineated, physically present buttons.
Advantages of capacitive switches: excellent resistance to water & dust; good haptics for the individual switches; almost unlimited design possibilities. Learn more
Industrial settings are harsh on equipment and increase the likelihood of product failure. Water, oil, and chemicals are capable of destroying a standard office keyboard. Also, these could not be operated with gloves, as some facilities require. So, it makes sense to utilize specialized keyboards. The selection is comprehensive and covers all of your needs at the point of use.
These industrial keyboards can be utilized in a variety of industries, including industrial automation, medical technology, transportation engineering, the food industry, building automation, and safety engineering, among others.
