Control panel HMIs: Helping to define the Fourth Industrial Revolution
Ranging from simple on/off switch panels to an ultra-complex software/hardware-based Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA) system found at the heart of factory automation, a control panel Human Machine Interface (HMI) enables human beings intuitively to interact with a machine and ensure production efficiency and worker safety.
Electromechanical devices such as pushbuttons, emergency stops, selector switches, keylock switches and optical and acoustic signalling devices remain an important part of most control panel HMIs simply because of their low cost, inherent reliability, and ease of input interfacing. They’re also easy to install.
