Human-machine interface development software speeds up projects
June 18, 2012 // Julien Happich
The iX 2.0 development software released by Beijer Electronics minimizes the distance between the HMI idea and the fully deployable, intuitive, application.
Smarter engineering tools and an improved ribbon menu set in a familiar Windows based environment ensure substantial time gains for project developers. Implementing navigation tools used in everyday applications such as mobile devices, iX 2.0 creates new ways to interact with machines using scroll and swipe gestures. Software features such as the unique “Action menu”, which enable a multi-level menu system and fast execution of actions, and the well-known “Roller panel” both help put the most relevant information right where the operator needs it, saving screen space and enabling manual-free operation in the process. With more intuitive applications that help operators make the right decisions, operation becomes safer and productivity increases.
A visual expression in line with the machine and company brand help machine builders and others sharpen their competitive edge. The iX software offers full HMI functionality and is ready to use as it is, but also offers the possibility to add, e.g., .NET components and create customized functionality through C# scripting since the software is based on the Microsoft .NET Framework.
