Our Motion Controllers and HMI (Human Machine Interface) portfolio can be found below. An HMI is an operating panel allowing for effective interaction between the operator and a machine. Motion Controllers are used by an operator to control a motor, commands are sent from the motion controller to a drive which powers the motor.
Motion Controllers are often selected for the following reasons;
Motion controllers come in a variety of sizes and types. They are either; stand-alone, PC based or individual motion controllers
Stand-alone motion controllers are an entire system which is typically mounted to a physical enclosure which contains all of the electronics needed as well as a power supply and external connections. Stand-alone can be built into a machine and are dedicated to one specific application involving the control of a single axis or multiple axis.
PC based Motion Controllers are mounted to a PC, either basic or industrial. They are predominantly used as processing boards to generate and execute motion profiles. PC-based motion controllers are easy to use because they provide a ready-made graphical user interface; this makes programming and tuning a lot easier.
Individual motion controllers are often called ICs . These are designed into a printed circuit board. They are usually the inexpensive option when it comes to motion controllers and give good access to the system; however, in order to use a individual motion controllers effectively, good programming skills from the user are essential.
HMIs offer visual representations of operations carried out by machines providing real time data. If the HMI is accurately implemented, it can increase the productivity by offering a centralised control centre and a user friendly interface.
HMIs offer the following advantages;
Our HMIs are compatible with a range of our motion controllers and our drivers. Typical interface options include the serial port of the Ethernet port of motion products.
