HMIs and Industrial PCs Award Winners


HMI Hardware

EZSeries HMI with remote Internet control


EZAutomation provides a dedicated human machine interface (HMI) with remote Internet control by adding Webserver/remote control technology to its EZSeries line of touch panels. Company says the technology provides remote control via the Internet for PLC HMIs. Users previously had two choices for remote Internet control: 1) Use a dedicated operating system in a touch panel, which is faster, more reliable, and needs less memory, since the microprocessor only displays graphics and communicates to PLCs. 2) Use an HMI with a Microsoft Windows CE operating system, which gives the panel Internet capability to send emails with alarms and serve Web pages for remote view. This can interfere with PLC communications and is inherently less reliable, slower, and uses a lot of memory.

HMI Software

FactoryTalk View Machine Edition

Rockwell Automation

Machine-level human machine interface (HMI) that supports open and embedded operator interfaces. FactoryTalk View Machine Edition (ME) from Rockwell Automation is a machine-level human machine interface (HMI) that supports open and embedded operator interfaces to help enhance, monitor and control individual machines or small processes. It accesses information from local FactoryTalk servers and standard third-party OPC servers; tags need to be defined once and their values can be logged and displayed in the historical trend object.

FactoryTalk ViewPoint - Rockwell Automation

Scalable, animated Web HMI applications remotely monitor plant-floor operations status: among the first commercially available, thin-client applications for manufacturing using the new Microsoft Silverlight technology.

Industrial PCs


Modular Industrial Computers

NEMA 4X Industrial Panel PC allows the computer to be removed for service without also removing the panel monitor. Modular Industrial Computers PowerPanel PC/FS provides users the power and flexibility of Intel Core 2 Duo processor technology in a panel mounted industrial computer platform. Available as a 15-, 17-, 19- or 21-in. LCD display touchscreen, the PowerPanel PC/FS features a removable PC module that facilitates service without tools. The Field Serviceable (FS) PC module can be detached from the monitor for service or reprogramming off the plant floor. The PowerPanel PC/FS specs include Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86Ghz, 1GB DDR2 RAM, 120 GB HDD, 4 USB, 2 Serial, 10/100/1000 Base T LAN Ethernet, and rated up to 55 °C.
