Power management company Eaton announced three series of operator interfaces for original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and machine building applications. The XV100 basic human machine interface (HMI) is designed to provide machine visualization and control, the XV300 HMI offers next generation performance and functions, and the XP500 industrial PC can operate as a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) solution.
Designed for machinery OEMs, Eaton’s XV100 basic HMI provides performance, standard HMI features with application support.
The XV100 basic HMI can be used in landscape or portrait modes ensuring a fit while optimizing visualization. Designed with communications hardware options, all XV100’s have standard Ethernet and USB ports that require no custom programming.
The XV300 advanced HMI includes an industrial HMI and programmable logic controller (PLC) multi-touch panel solution portfolio for operator interface automation and control applications.
The XV300 series incorporates gesture based controls, multimedia integration and user guidance. The XV300 Advanced HMI also features a sleek design, with heavy-duty, anti-glare toughened glass panels that integrate media elements such as video, PDF and web content. The XV300 Advanced HMI also offers gestures support for efficiency when navigating complex menu screens. For example, users can flick to scroll through parameter lists, swipe left or right to change pages, or swipe up and down to reveal hidden menus.
With a scratch-resistant toughened glass screen, cast aluminum housing and fan-less design, the XP500 is a that can operate in harsh environments and hazardous applications. Additionally, the XP500 runs on Windows Embedded Standard 7 for compatibility with a variety of user software and Eaton’s visualization suite.
In combination, these tools are designed to help OEMs minimize design complexity, reduce development time and and create value for end users through object-oriented, re-usable templates and controls.
