What does HMI stand for?
It stands for Human-Machine Interface (HMI).
What is a HMI?
A HMI is a user interface or dashboard that connects a person to a machine, system, or device.
So in other words, it is essentially a set of devices that allow interaction between technical personnel and the process.
What is the difference between a HMI and UI?
Whilst the term can be applied to any screen that allows a user to interact with a device, a HMI is used in the context that of an industrial process.
How does a HMI work?
A HMI allows operators/users to begin and stop cycles, adjust set points and perform other functions that are required to adjust and interact with a control process.
HMI can be used in multiple industries, examples include:
- Food and Beverage
- Vending machines
Benefits of HMIs
1. HMI is software based, it replaces the needs of having physical wires and controls with software parameters, allowing to be adapted and adjusted very easily.
2. Operation Control Becomes More Flexible. With the HMI technology, the user can customize the interface to suit specific needs or preferences.
