HMI promises an enhanced operator experience

19 March 2013

Increased functionality and an enhanced operator experience are promised with the introduction of the latest version of the FactoryTalk HMI software from Rockwell Automation.

FactoryTalk View Site Edition (SE) and Machine Edition (ME) 7.0 applications include the benefits of more efficient alarm management, simplified installation, improved user experience, and integrated data sharing.

FactoryTalk View SE 7.0 software will support larger numbers of HMI clients and servers in a single system, increasing the size of systems that can support the FactoryTalk View SE alarming subsystem, FactoryTalk Alarms and Events.

This alarming subsystem is aligned with the ISA Alarming Standard 18.2. It also allows users to configure remote-alarming commands on display faceplates, saving time when an operator needs to react to device alarm situations.

The new installation process in FactoryTalk View SE and ME software is said to save time with a streamlined work flow that automates installation of FactoryTalk View components. From a design-time standpoint, a new find-and-replace for HMI and global-object displays will be available in the FactoryTalk View Studio design environment so the user can locate and replace tags or strings across multiple servers and screens.

A new navigation button that provides functionality similar to the navigation buttons in commercially available web browsers, allowing operators to more quickly navigate screens and resolve production issues.
