Machine interface

27 October 2014

Designed following careful analysis of real applications and customer requirements, the new NA machine interface (HMI) from Omron makes it fast and easy for users to implement dynamic, intuitive user interfaces that help boost productivity and minimise downtime by giving detailed real-time and historical insights into machine operation.

The new NA machine interface is programmed using Omron’s comprehensive Sysmac Studio development system, which covers all areas of automation, including logic, motion, vision and safety. This means that the NA machine interface can be programmed alongside the other automation system components, which speeds development and reduces programming complexity.

Other features include:

  • Intelligent Application Gadgets (IAGs) for common applications, which operate in a similar way to function blocks.
  • Pre-configured animated objects, such as tanks with cut outs to show levels and valves that show open and closed states, as well as graphics for basic machine parts, including winders, flow-wrappers, multi-head weighing units and many more.
  • A multi-level authentication and security system, providing access to the machine interface can be controlled on a user-by-user basis.
  • Powerful multimedia facilities that provide machine views that are understandable at a glance which can include videos showing how to perform particular procedures, documentation in PDF format, which can never get lost and which can be accessed instantly whenever it is needed.
