    Human Machine Interface (HMI): How to DIY

    In this modern day and age, technology is everywhere you look. It’s the smartphone buzzing in everyone’s pocket, the tablet that takes the place of books, and the laptop found in homes across the globe. Each of those devices shares one universal thing in common: a Human Machine Interface (HMI). In short, an HMI is a way for people to communicate with a machine. A keyboard or a multi-touch screen is a good example. The user inputs information, and the device or software registers the appropriate response. With the introduction of new programming languages, more and more developers are trying their hand at making their own PC-based Human Machine Interface. However, here are a few things to consider before embarking on this crafty enterprise. Continue reading →
  3. Essentials of Automated Control Panel Design

    From a single control panel design to comprehensive, mission-critical systems, computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications have enjoyed wide-scale use over the past three decades. Whether CAE is used for design automation, multidisciplinary design optimization, thermal analysis or simulation, electrical and mechanical engineers have long benefited from its use through greater efficiency and more repeatable, accurate and optimized designs. In many facilities...
  4. The Types of Thin Client and HMI Visualization Application

    A thin client (also called lean or slim client) is a stateless, fanless desktop terminal that does not contain a hard drive. When using a thin client, all the features that are typically found on the desktop PC such as applications, sensitive data, and memory are stored back into the data center or server. Thin clients, software services, and backend...
