HMIs and SCADA

HMIs and SCADA systems are the all important interface between the automated equipment and the machine operator. They enable the process to be monitored, critical parameters adjusted, performance data to be displayed, the feedback of alarms and finally the presentation of the data in simple text and diagrams.

HMI

The HMIs (Human Machine Interface) from all of the primary suppliers have been significantly developed in the last few years. Sophisticated colour touch screen systems can be provided in a range of screen sizes, typically from 5 inch to 12 inch, at relatively low cost.

SCADA

SCADA

SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is an industrial automation control system. It allows organisations to monitor and control machines or devices and also regional operating systems from a central location. There are numerous standalone SCADA packages (Intellution, Wonderware etc) and we have also developed a lower cost solution using Omron PLCs and an industrial PC with Beijer graphics software.
