Courtesy: EatonDiversified industrial manufacturer Eaton is introducing a new software platform for its XV Series of HMIs (human machine interfaces). Already available in Europe, the Galileo 8.0 software is designed to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) expedite time to market with an easy-to-learn operator interface project design environment. In addition to Galileo, Eaton is introducing six new XV models.

“Eaton is committed to providing lean automation solutions that help OEMs reduce costs and streamline operations,” said Raul Guerrero, product manager at Eaton. “Galileo helps global machine builders develop complex applications across industries to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.”

As part of a broad range of Eaton solutions for global OEMs, Galileo software provides project design tools and functionality without graduated restrictions on tags and screens. The software features data bridge functionality and multiple programmable logic controller (PLC) communication driver support.

The user-friendly project design environment incorporates project simulation on the development computer. The graphical user interface is designed to be an easy-to-learn experience and includes a project overview window. PLC variables and help screens are designed for accessibility and import ease. The Galileo software also includes various interface styles, extensive recipe and alarm handling, enhanced password handling, as well as convenient series assignment of texts and images to tags.

Additionally, there are six new XV HMI models for Galileo now available in North America. These XV Series units will be available in 3.5, 5.7, and 7.0 in. screen sizes.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
