A new capability in the vendor’s human-machine interfaces (HMIs) allows them to be remotely controlled and monitored with laptops, desktop PCs, touch pads, and cell phones such as the iPhone, Droid and Blackberry.

The HMIs have a VNC (virtual network computing) server that makes that remote access possible. That means users can communicate with an Ethernet-connected HMI via any device that has Internet access and a VNC client capability. HMIs available with the remote operational capability include 7-, 10.2-, 10.4-, 12-, and 15-in. units. The HMIs come with bright, high-resolution displays with 65,000 colors (standard and widescreen), analog touchscreens; USB, serial and Ethernet ports; and an option to configure in either portrait or landscape mode.
