  • An agreement between Broadwin Technology Inc . and Omron Taiwan System Electronics Inc . is designed to provide sales, distribution, marketing, engineering, and technical support of WebAccess 4.0 HMI and SCADA software for the industrial automation and electronic control components markets in Taiwan. WebAccess 4.0 is Omron’s Web-browser based HMI and SCADA software for industrial automation. Using a standard Web browser, users can view real-time data and control automation equipment in manufacturing and process plants with full motion animation.

  • Wonderware ’s InTouch HMI software now supports the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system. InTouch HMI software is designed for industrial automation, process control, and supervisory monitoring environments. Both the standard and terminal services versions are included in the upgrade. Get more information about InTouch HMI software on the Wonderware Website.

  • Boost your knowledge on a number of HMI software and application topics through a series of white papers offered by GE Fanuc. Papers are presented in a downloadable .pdf format and require a simple registration process. Topics include designing HMI/SCADA applications, implementing HMI software in a regulated environment, and working with GE Fanuc’s iHistorian HMI software. Click here to view a complete list .
