HMI refers to Human Interface Machine which is an interface that works between a machine and a human. HMI operator panels are manufacturing and process control interfaces that placed on the floor of a factory right next to machinery. This helps us read the needed information from this equipment in a synoptic way. A HMI offers a visual representation of the status of a control system while providing real time data. They can also act as the centralized control unit in factories or manufacturing plants as they can handle memory (non-volatile) that contains data recipes.HMIs can also offer video feed for status monitoring, event triggering and event logging. The interface must be connected to a Programmable Logic Controller which is shortened as PLC
or Motion Controller. This way, the PLC or Motion controller gets the information from the machine sensors
and changes that to Boolean algebra for easy communication with the HMI. The biggest benefit of HMIs is how user friendly it is and the ability to personalize HMIs graphical interface.
