How Human Machine Interfacing Improves Efficiencies

Posted by TIGA on Apr 3, 2019 10:47:37 AM

 

Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) are user interfaces or dashboards that connect a person to a machine, system, or device. And even though the term "HMI" can be applied to any type of screen or monitor that allows a human user to interact with a machine or device, the benefits of HMI's are not readily understood in the industrial space. Keep reading to discover how smart companies are capitalizing on HMI's to increase their overall operational efficiencies.

What Is SCADA and How It Increases Efficiency

Posted by John Miller on Oct 10, 2018 7:59:48 AM

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) is a control system architecture that uses computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces for high-level process supervisory management, but uses other peripheral devices such as programmable logic controller(PLC) and discrete PID controllers to interface with the process plant or machinery. The operator interfaces which enable monitoring and the issuing of process commands, such as controller set point changes, are handled through the SCADA computer system. However, the real-time control logic or controller calculations are performed by networked modules which connect to the field sensors and actuators.
