Software Simplifies HMI Development

iX is a fourth-generation, software-based HMI concept that is designed to fill the gap between proprietary HMI terminals and costly SCADA license solutions.

It consists of a development environment and a runtime environment and is available in several versions, including a complete Lauer HMI concept that can run on a panel PC or desktop PC platform as well as a runtime version for PCs from other suppliers. With the ability to integrate externally available .Net controls (DLLs), there are practically no limits in the generation of user-defined objects, says the vendor. A large number of predefined graphic objects, such as switches, indicator instruments and technical pictograms, give novice users rapid access and enable fast results. Additionally, the software supports Microsoft multifunction bars and frees users from nested menus. Users have the choice of using protocols from an extensive pool of drivers or a connection via a third-party OPC server. All data is stored in compliance with the SQL standard, which facilitates data administration. The software is fully script programmable in C#.
