Hot Control Engineering HMI, OI articles in 2023 | Control Engineering

Control Engineering top 5 articles online about human-machine interfaces and operator interfaces (HMIs/OIs) published in the last year include stories on HMI migration, HMI and edge computing capabilities, what engineers can learn from HMIs and more. Also: See additional HMI and OI stories here.

1. HMI/SCADA systems: Upgrade your migration

When upgrading human-machine interface (HMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software, don’t just create a new version of the old. Enable workers with advanced HMI/SCADA capabilities after migration. See five tips for optimizing HMI/SCADA screens.

2. Controllers, interfaces provide advanced edge computing capabilities

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and human-machine interfaces (HMIs) are used for real-time control, but now they can do much more to ease implementation of analytics and other needs with edge computing technologies.

3. Controls system integrator: Always something to learn with PLCs, HMI, SCADA

A controls engineer for a system integrator said he enjoys frequent learning while developing and commissioning programmable logic controllers (PLCs), human-machine interfaces (HMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, as outlined in the Control Engineering subscriber interview below.

4. Three tools for rapid HMI/SCADA development

Templates, user-defined types (UDTs) and parameterized pop-ups are three tools that can help build HMI/SCADA projects as swiftly as possible.

5. More answers about overcoming limits of outdated HMI hardware and software

Human-machine interfaces: More audience questions are answered below from the webcast, “How to overcome limits of outdated HMI hardware and software.”
