Maple Systems announced the launch of a new cMT “Smart Factory” HMI series, which enables control and monitoring of the HMI from Windows PCs, and Apple/Android smart phones and tablets.
Technological advances in IT, personal electronics, and manufacturing are expanding the role of Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) in the automation market. Today, there are more ways than ever for operators to interface with machines. HMIs need the ability to network to a central location where managers can monitor operations, receive alerts, and resolve issues quickly. OEMs need the ability to monitor and track in-field equipment, responding without onsite visits. And machine operators need the freedom to walk the plant, controlling machines via tablets and smart phones.
All of the above is now possible with Maple Systems cMT solutions. Two new “smart HMI” models include a powerful display-less HMI, and a 15” touchscreen HMI packed with features including trending, recipes, alarms, and more. Both models offer the ability to communicate to PCs, Apple/Android smart phones and tablets, are IIoT-Ready, and support the following: MQTT,
OPC UA Server, MySQL, and Modbus Gateway.
