HMI functionality PLUS an Andon Message Board all-in-one unit

Andon or Annunciator System

The cMT-FHDX can be used as an Andon or Annunciator system, creating a Status Display Station. It can collect equipment and quality management data from the production line, process the data, and then send visualization and sound to a large screen monitor via HDMI, allowing real-time monitoring and control for onsite operators.

Andon systems are widely used in manufacturing plants for instant visual management. Alarm messages and key productivity indicators from production line can be collected, displayed and monitored in real-time. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) information can be displayed, and identifies the percentage of planned production time that is truly productive.

Pick your screen

Because the display is user selectable, you can choose the features you need in your display independent of the features you need in your HMI.

  • Choose a daylight readable display with an extended temperature range for outdoor applications.
  • Choose a less expensive but large display for indoor applications that just need to be viewable from far away.
  • Or choose to have no display at all for applications where you only need data logging or mobile access to the HMI through VNC.
  • You can even connect it to a projector for truly large display needs.

HMI Functionality

As a partner, we will be working towards the same goal. Communication is key!

A headless HMI is an HMI without a built-in touchscreen. Our Headless HMIs are controlled over the network and have a graphical interface that can be accessed from any PC or smartphone, or through a separate touch display or touch monitor.

The cMT-FHDX data processing unit is a fully functional Smart HMI and can be thought of as the “brain” data processing center which allows you to monitor and control your automation process.

By dividing the traditional all-in-one HMI into two parts: a data processing unit and a separate visual display. No longer is your screen size limited to the available HMIs on the market – you can now display your real-time production data on a large wall-mounted status display station, easily visible from any plant floor location.

The cMT-FHDX takes your process to the big screen with ease.

Touchscreen Monitors

Industrial touch screen monitors are designed and tested for harsher environments making them much more rugged, compared to typical “office” monitors. They are designed to withstand prolonged shock & vibration, a wide temperature range, and protection from water and dust. All of our monitors can be panel mount, or VESA mounted, depending on your application.

Our high brightness/sunlight readable monitors are ideal for applications in Industrial Automation, Healthcare, Finance/Banking, Education, Gaming/Entertainment, Home Automation, Retail, and Transportation, and pair easily with our Box PCs and Headless HMIs. All our monitors allow you to use gloves and act as touchscreens, reducing the need for a keyboard and mouse allowing for maximum freedom when designing a system.

PLC Support

With over 300 PLC & Controller communication protocols, our HMIs will easily integrate with your preferred PLC brand Including Allen-Bradley, Siemens, Omron, Emerson, GE, Panasonic, Mitsubishi and all the major protocols is a few clicks away. Creating a powerful edge gateway at a great price has never been easier.
