In automation, many software and hardware technologies have been developed that allow companies the means to remotely monitor and control business processes from anywhere, via any device, at any time
Researchers warn smart manufacturing users and security professionals to be aware of advanced hackers.
Modern technology and creative thinking are enabling many impressive projects using human-machine interface software and supervisory control and data acquisition software. HMI and SCADA software help with OT and IT convergence. See six SCADA software advantages, applications.
The June issue of AppliedAutomation looks at high-performance HMIs (HP-HMIs) and remote monitoring in the age of COVID-19.
When beginning a hardware and software upgrade project, look to implement high-performance human-machine interface (H-P-HMI) graphics for greater control of manufacturing processes and systems.
Which devices to use? A multi-tasking controller combines functions of a PC-based software controller with visualization, PC applications, and input/output connections. Combining a scalable human-machine interface (HMI) system, supervisory control and data acquisition, and other functions can add edge functionality.
Combining a scalable human-machine interface (HMI) system and supervisory control and data acquisition with additional edge functionality gives machine and plant designs a high degree of flexibility and adaptability to quickly react to changing market environments and maintain fast innovations cycles.
Unlock monolithic clean in place and steam in place procedures to optimize process KPIs, OEE and profits. Batch automation model, control programming, HMIs can help.
The industry is moving toward using collaborative robots (cobots) with force-sensing technology that work alongside people
