Human-machine interface (HMI) units are vital to the operations of your machine. HMI units typically have an easy-to-read visual indicator that provides invaluable insights into process performance and productivity. The interface, while still sophisticated, allows simpler control over processes. These visual indicators and controls, in conjunction with alerts and alarms, provide machine operators with the ability to improve efficiency and productivity by identifying and responding to requirements and production issues much more quickly and easily. These efficiencies ultimately will help your bottom line.
Over time, an HMI can show signs that it is starting to fail — and failure of the HMI can lead to critical downtime. It is a best practice to repair an HMI unit before it fails.
