HMI - Human Machine Interface, KEB and ABB

Human Machine Interface (HMI) for Motion Control

We offer the latest automation control panels from KEB and ABB. They include exceptional graphic and communication technologies for an outstanding Human Machine Interface experience.

KEB C6 HMI – Embedded Panel PC
C6 HMI provides the user a high quality Human Machine Interface experienceThe C6 HMI was designed using the latest graphic and communication technologies typically found in modern day smart devices such as tablets and smartphones. As a result, the C6 HMI provides the user a high-quality Human Machine Interface experience while providing the user a competitive “right-price” edge.

“Right-price” does not mean the C6 HMI wasn’t designed for an industrial environment! The front bezel is aluminum and meets IP66/Nema 4X Indoor ratings. There are no moving parts: no fans, and no hard drives. A fanless cooling design and flash mass storage maximize reliability.

Use the C6 ECON as a panel PC for both a Human machine interface (HMI) and for motion control.The C6 ECON was built with the power for processing tasks. On-board RAM provides a good balance between cost and visualization performance.

Designed for economy and built with an Intel chip set, the user can easily use the C6 ECON as a panel PC for both a Human machine interface (HMI) and for motion control.

To maximize up-time, the C6 ECON was designed as a fanless system.

Data storage is achieved with hardware options, such as Compact Flash (CF), hard drives or newer solid-state drives.

KEB C6 VPN Router 
The router can be used to host a webserver-based HMI.

as been specially designed for use in remote installations and industrial settings.

The router is available in two hardware and two software versions. Users can select a model with direct hardwired internet connection via WAN port, or 2G/3G/3G+ wireless connection via any GSM network. This allows for greater flexibility in setting up an installation that allows for remote maintenance and commissioning.

The E1/M1 versions of the router have come with software designed solely for remote maintenance. They allow access to Ethernet and serial communication based devices down to the subnet level. With the implementation of visualization software, the E2/M2 versions provide the additional benefit of KEB’s COMBIVIS Studio HMI software. Functions like data logging, alarm management, and analysis tools are just a few of the additional features of the E2/M2 version.

The KEB C6 family of routers is completely hardware independent and can be used with any third party controls without restrictions. Thanks to the wide range of communication drivers available, linking to any controllers is fast and easy.

ABB Control Panels CP600 – HMI
CP600 16:9 offers large area for HMI pages in compact spaceVersatile Visualization for Productivity with Design – the CP600 range is dedicated for machines and systems that require visualization performance or representative design.
