Next generation HMI solutions

08 August 2018

Through integration in Microsoft’s Visual Studio. Beckhoff’s TwinCAT HMI next generation of Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions offers a graphical What-You-See-is-What-You-Get (WYSIWYG) editor, enabling use of simple controls from a toolbox, which can be arranged on the design interface and linked to variables. In addition, it is possible to assemble and parameterise user controls from the variety of simple controls, making the HMI design kit easy to expand.

This web-based solution, which is HTML5, CSS and JavaScript, acts ‘responsively’, irrespective of the operating system and device. The powerful basic architecture makes numerous application scenarios possible, from the local panel display solution to multi-client, multi-server and multi-runtime concepts. Custom extensions can be implemented quickly via defined templates; the mix of standard controls and custom design elements facilitates individualisation and differentiation.

TwinCAT HMI also meets the demand for maximum flexibility as a web-based and platform-independent user interface with maximum adaptability. Whatever device or operating system you use, TwinCAT HMI automatically adapts to the technology at hand, supporting scenarios for ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD). Whichever preferred format, whether it is a tablet, smartphone or industrial panel, the HMI is easily accessible at any time.
