HMI084 / HMI104 Vision the future with HMI

Communication between man and machine is the key for a complete total solution

HMI (human-machine interface) is where people and technology meet. The graphic presentation replaces traditional obscure technical terms and makes machine manipulation very direct and reactive. .

  • Innovative ETX CPU modules with flexible and upgradeable options
  • Most flexible storage device selections for different installation requirements: hard disk or harddisk-less environment
  • Equipped with touch screen to offer easy-to-use manipulation and reliable system integration.
  • Selective package with Windows CE .NET platform is ready for integrated application.
Most Flexible storage device selections of  HMI solutions:
Two alternative ways to fulfill customers' installation requirements. Each product supports 2.5'' IDE hard disk drive bay and cable. For better storage reliability, HMI product offers 48MB DOM(Disk on Module) with embedded OS pre-installed and Compact Flash for future application installation. Meanwhile, 128MB SDRAM provides enough memory space for resource-consuming applications to run. IDE-interfaced DOM is fanless and comparably more stable and secure than hard disk, besides, heat and shock resistant to harsh environment.

Your Best Platform Choice
No Second Thought in Industrial Automation and Controls!!

Advantages of Windows CE .NET

Win CE .NET provides an integrated end-to-end tool set which helps manufacturing software applications integrated easily and seamlessly together, and reduce both operating system and applications developing time, achieving faster time-to-market purposes:

  • Offer tiny and reliable core system services that enable the most demanding real-time embedded design across a breadth of devices
  • Windows CE .NET framework provides the portability of developed applications across all Microsoft windows systems, such as Windows 98, NT, 2000, XP, etc.
  • Low cost by each run-time license
  • Modular design for flexibility and extensibility
  • Run on many different processors, some with very low power consumption
  • Instant power shutdown

The Adoption of ETX Module
HMI product line, a practical hardware platform for HMI/SCADA software applications, which is made very easy to connect to PLC and Internet by offering LAN and communication ports. Besides it is very cost-effective to upgrade in the future based on its ETX architecture. HMI application vendors are able to save lots of cost by just upgrading the CPU module to get the performance scalability.



The current factory control is fractionalized: process controls are the brains behind the system, instrumentation is the eyes and ears of the system, and data networks are the voices that are communicating between systems or subsystems. Process controllers which are PC-based, graphic-interfaced, and web-enabled are replacing proprietary and obsolete PLC controllers. In this infrastructure, the communication among devices are via proprietary protocols such as Profibus, DeviceNet, CANopen, and the status information collected by a local controller are sent to automation software for configuration, monitoring and plug-and-play with sophisticated optimization systems. Data acquisitioned from devices are passed via Ethernet to enterprise systems, i.e., ERP, and then directed to Supply Chain via Internet. The windows-based human machine interface (HMI) with touch screen panel allows operators to control and monitor important activities on several machines in the same time. Through the OPC interface provided by hardware manufacturer, software developers are free from the difficulties of supporting versatile hardware in the market, and are able to focus on the software design of control processes. OPC is a new protocol based on Microsoft COM/DCOM technology to ease the software implementation of industry automation and control. As it is known, about 75% of automation systems’ costs are associated with systems integration and support, therefore the connectivity between shop floor and the business system will permit synchronization of production lines with supply chain execution, scheduling and other production management systems. This free flow of information will permit the manufacturer to move into the era of Internet-enabled production.
The migration to PC-based platform will allow factory floor to operate a common generic HMI workstation through Ethernet or communication I/O. With the HMI application, graphical objects are linked to I/O points, control variables, monitor alarm status, log data to disk, and trend real-time information. Also, if the control software and HMI application utilize a shared database, this eliminates annoying cross-referencing, and improves accuracy. Reliability of the HMI is an absolute requirement, because the machine operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
