Foxborough, MA— To help users streamline operations, extend manufacturing information infrastructures and improve ROI, GE Fanuc Automation Ameericas Inc. introduced July 2 its Cimplicity HMI 6.1. This latest version is designed to extend the connectivity and localization capabilities of global manufacturers. Featuring dynamic screen localization and connectivity enhancements to simplify exchange of data between plant floor and the enterprise, Cimplicity HMI 6.1 allows users worldwide to quickly and easily implement it, and unlock hidden ROI potential in manufacturing processes.

'The functionality of HMI/SCADA applications continues to evolve well beyond their original role of simple, process-based visualization and control,' says Kevin Roach, GE Fanuc’s global solutions business VP. 'Today, they're the foundation of a company's information infrastructure, collecting and distributing plant-floor information to a diverse array of plant intelligence and business-level systems. That's why we've designed Cimplicity HMI 6.1 to seamlessly share information with other applications, systems and services that require real-time production information to enhance the day-to-day operations of the plant.'

Cimplicity HMI 6.1's connectivity enhancements include its ability to share data with process execution products, such as Cimplicity Machine Edition, and with plant intelligence products, such as iHistorian, GE Fanuc's plant-wide data historian. By using iHistorian, users can collect, retain, and share production data with many client applications. This helps transform raw production data into actionable business information, and makes that information accessible throughout the enterprise and beyond.

For global users, OEMs or system integrators seeking to customize HMI screens in their native language, Cimplicity HMI 6.1 can also change the language of screen and alarm text on the fly. This is an ideal solution for companies with a multi-lingual workforce or for multinational busi-nesses that wish to deploy one solution across multiple sites worldwide; or for global OEMs who want to create one product with worldwide support.
