It can communicate with eight separate protocols simultaneously and pass data between them easily. The V8 Series HMI also has an FTP server, SQL connectivity, and supports remote desktop and data logging to a CF card or USB memory device. A Fuji tool called Component Parts can assist users in creating multifunctional screens instantly. The tool contains all necessary settings for operation. To deploy a screen on additional displays, simply copy and paste. Fuji also offers free updates to its Component Parts tool, allowing users to keep HMI applications on the cutting edge. It has a faster processor, brighter screen, and more memory than previous generations. It can be used as a central communications hub with connectivity to PLCs, motion controllers, temperature controllers, drives, barcode readers, and more. As with all of the Monitouch HMIs, V815iXD is forward compatible, allowing user to import applications from any HMI to the newest generation.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
