Graphical HMI devices can use pictorial representations of process variables and control components for complete system visualization and control. They offer many user-configured objects including pushbuttons, switches, indicators, numeric displays, as well as screen animations and trending graphs.
The HMI or Human Machine Interface allows operators to "interface" with the system they oversee. It provides a visual overview of the
automated system's status and direct control of its operation. An HMI's graphical screens can be programmed to display important status
and control information to the operator. Pictures, icons, sounds, and colors can all be used by HMIs to represent different operating
conditions and many HMIs deploy touch screen technology for user interaction with elements displayed on the screen.
Some of the benefits/features HMIs provide are:
Line/Bar graphs - display real-time process values over time with line graphs or in easy-to-read bar graphs
Data entry - easily change process variables with a pop-up numeric keypad on the screen or with increment/ decrement arrows
Alarming - see fault indications with detailed descriptions that aid in troubleshooting
Recipe functions - change numerous operating parameters with one click; recipe buttons transfer multiple values from PLC source
registers to PLC destination registers and/or from the recipe table to PLC destination registers
Communication - HMIs also provide communication channels for easy upload/download of programs, PLC communication, and industrial networking
Advanced features - more advanced HMIs can also provide email capability so the HMI can email important data to you, web server
functionality so you can log on to the HMI from anywhere in the world, data logging so you can record production data for future
reference, and mobile apps for your smartphone so you can check on production while on the go
Easy modifications - adding or removing objects, like buttons, on the screen takes no time at all and doesn't cost extra
C-more industrial HMI panels provide visibility and a convenient control interface for large complex systems as well
as small simple applications.
The full-featured C-more CM5 HMI series is a high-performance graphical interface with a wide range of sizes
(up to 22"), numerous communication ports and protocols, and the processing power to handle any job
The time-tested C-more EA9 series offers some great features with sizes up to 15"
C-more Micro HMIs provide basic functionality for systems that need a simple, easy-to-use interface with screen
sizes ranging from 3 inches to 6 inches
C-more HMI panels use free programming software that provides easy-to-use design tools and a powerful project simulator
Hardware options and accessories for C-more HMIs include SD memory cards, USB flash drives, protective overlays,
connectors, mounting brackets, and port adapters.
The C-more and C-more Micro programming software packages are FREE to download and provide a robust set of tools for
developing simple or very complex projects. Software features include but are not limited to:
Screen objects such as toggle switch, slide switch, selector switch, throw switch, thumbwheel switch, meters,
PID faceplates, and an analog/digital clock (depending on HMI series)
Up to 9999 screens for C-more, 999 for C-more Micro
Password protection available for every touch object or screen (depending on HMI series)
Import bitmaps or bitmap objects, such as pushbuttons
