GP-Pro EX 2.2 HMI functions include multimedia capability, remote PC access, high-speed device linking, and a built-in control logic editor. Features include enhanced local and remote security and traceability; direct interface to devices including PLCs, motion controllers, vision systems, and barcode scanners; smart simulation and shortcuts; and expanded object animation capabilities.

New security features reduce system tampering and provide a safe machine environment by managing access to both the local machine and remote maintenance and control tools.
