Improving productivity with an industrial HMI

For workers in industrial and manufacturing settings, convenient access to a computer and applications is critical to maintaining productivity and efficient operations. Yet any human-machine interface (HMI) in industrial conditions is likely to be subject to extreme temperatures, high humidity, vibration, shock and other harsh conditions. That's where a rugged industrial HMI from Comark can help.

Comark is a leading manufacturer of innovative, highly engineered and internationally certified industrial HMI solutions that provide durable and reliable performance in industrial automation, building automation and fire & life safety applications.

Advantages of an industrial HMI

An industrial HMI provides organizations with:

  • A durable interface. An industrial HMI is built to deliver superior performance despite extreme temperatures, vibration and humidity. Certain industrial HMIs may also be resistant to water, dirt, dust and other particulates.
  • Streamlined data entry. An industrial HMI will typically enable workers wearing gloves to interact with the monitor. A touchscreen industrial HMI permits faster data entry than a computer that require a mouse and keyboard.
  • A compact design. An industrial display is designed to minimize the space required for industrial controls and can be mounted to walls, machines and even vehicles.
  • Stronger protection. The protective housing, noncorrosive surfaces and anti-shock construction of an industrial HMI provide greater protection against industrial conditions.
  • Easier viewing. The extra bright screen and wide-angle viewing of an industrial monitor make it easier for workers in bright industrial settings to view screen contents.
  • Cost savings. Because industrial monitors last longer and require fewer repairs or replacements, they offer significant cost advantages over consumer-grade equipment.

FAQs: what is an industrial HMI?

An industrial HMI, or human machine interface, is a computer monitor that is designed for the harsh and hazardous conditions of industrial environments. An industrial HMI typically incorporates rugged components that can withstand shock and vibration as well as extreme temperatures, and is housed in a protective enclosure that prevents the ingress of water, dust and dirt which may be present in industrial manufacturing environments.
