What Is a Human Machine Interface?
An HMI allows operators to interact with a system, machine or device. The display screen conveys machine information in ways that make sense for human cognition. The interface facilitates accurate, efficient engagement between a human user and the system, handling tasks ranging from monitoring machine input and output to tracking production data to creating visual displays.
HMIs appear in many different industries today, such as the medical, automotive and industrial fields. People use them on hand-held devices, in centralized control rooms, on vending machines and ATMs, and in a variety of other places.
What Is a Panel Meter?
A panel meter is a crucial tool for industries that must monitor the environment or the status of a piece of equipment. Essentially, they operate by receiving a voltage signal and then displaying the data visually. Some common types of panel meters include:
- Digital panel meters: This type of panel meter receives an input signal and converts it to digital form, displaying a variable visually for reading.
- Analog panel meters: These devices read an analog signal and then directly display the information without any conversion in the process.
Panel meters can appear in applications measuring pressure, temperature or other variables. For example, one common type of panel meter is the temperature controller, a panel application that measures the current temperature of an environment and determines the heating or cooling level required to regulate it.
