To further promote the HMI Centric concept of the Pro-face brand, we have launched the HMI Centric Architecture.HMI Centric Architecture aims to save your time and effort in developing your system by developing you with connection and configuration instructions for Pro-face HMI and products from other companies, as well as sample projects to make your application.
The five new Architecture options include not only suggestions for building new equipment and facilities but also suggestions for enhancing existing equipment and facilities to improve site operations. Please take this opportunity to experience HMI Centric for yourself.
HMI Centric Architecture
HMI with WiFi router + Smartphone
You can easily start secure remote maintenance over 3G/4G using your smartphone as an access point, even in environments where a network cannot be built or the end user's on-site network is not available.
BOX HMI with QR Code for mobile HMI operation
Using BOX HMIs and tablets saves space and reduces costs for efficient maintenance improvements on site. With Pro-face connectivity, you can monitor the information of various equipment on your tablet. It is possible to visually check the specific location of the equipment while using the tablet, enabling you to deal with errors reliably. Also, by using a QR code, you can quickly and reliably access the equipment.
HMI with Network camera
Network cameras are attracting a lot of attention as a tool for site improvement, especially in large equipment and multifunctional machines. By capturing scenes that are not noticeable to the naked eye or the cause of errors that cannot be determined by data analysis alone, you will be able to reliably uncover facts that were previously unknown to you.
HMI with ID Card (NFC) reader
Security measures can be easily implemented by utilizing HMI to manage the operations of equipment and facilities that are operated by multiple operators or that have special processes.
In the past, a robot technician had to use a special teaching pendant to determine the state of the robot and restore it when an error occurred. However, with dedicated sample screen is available to check the status of the robot on HMI. Robot HMI makes it easy for anyone to determine the status of the robot.
