Beijer Electronics has launched the HMI software iX 2.0, offering many ways to personalize the application, including customizing the system dialogs. A visual expression in line with the machine and company brand help machine builders and others sharpen their competitive edge. The software offers full HMI functionality and is ready to use as it is, but also offers the possibility to add, e.g., .NET components and create customized functionality through C# scripting since the software is based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. The new operator panels can share information with each other via panel networks, regardless of size or performance, which makes it easy to share information between users and provides safer control of complex machines also over long distances. The panels can act as OPC UA server and client, enabling distribution of information between the factory floor and business or planning system, and the built-in report generator turns figures into Excel reports for saving or printing directly. As web servers, the panels enable engineers to freely create web pages which operators and supervisors will be able to log in to from, e.g., mobile devices, thus facilitating more efficient operations.
