Human Machine Interface Provides A Convenient Factory Automation Environment

In the field of factory automation, each machine is controlled by human machine interface (HMI). This method allows controlling, monitoring, managing, and displaying process of equipment, making graphic, visualized interaction with machines possible. Operators can control the machines by pressing the buttons or clicking on touchscreens, providing a convenient machine operation environment. It can be used in machine or process control, connecting sensors, executors, the machines located in workshops, I/O control and PLC application systems.

Complete human machine interface solution

 As the partner of Cwlinux, Independent Design House (IDH) of Arrow Electronics has launched the CWMX6-Q7 CPU module to provide a faster and more complete solution for developing human machine interface. It employs Qseven form factor, with build-in Freescale i.MX6 quad-core ARM Cortex A-9 processor. In addition, it provides various frequencies of your choices, with the maximum of 1.2GHz. It also comes in different memory capacities and flash storage capacities for your options. Offering product design services, the company takes pleasure to help its customers to transform their ideas into reality easily. 

With build-in HDMI interface, CWMX6-Q7 CPU module supports the maximum resolution of 1920x1080, audio codec up to 24-bit 96KHz, and S/PDIF digital output. It also supports Ethernet at 10/100M, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0, and 3G expansion option. Moreover, it also provides USB port, serial ports, and RS232/RS485, SATA, SDHC, PCI, CAN, SPI, I2C, and camera ports. With complete functions, it can support the operation systems of Android 4.x, Ubuntu, and Yocto, highly suitable for human-machine interface solutions in factory automation. It is also applicable on digital advertising boards, POS machines, and digital kiosks. 
In addition to providing CPU module, Cwlinux also provides suggestions of products catering to customers’ needs, helping them to conduct product design and integration. The company also provides assistance during the development and manufacturing process to ensure the products expected by the customers are delivered to them successfully. Moreover, in the life span of five years, the companies can provide prototype designs to ensure continuous upgrading of the products. It is compatible with CWMX535 and the pins of Q7 CPU module to be launched in the future. 

Human machine interface with new technology requires further development and innovation 

With the progress of science and technology, in addition to the traditional buttons and touch screen sensors, human machine interface can be controlled by more intelligent means, such as voice, gesture, facial recognition, and video. Integrated with network function, it will become the directions of future development, providing a prompter, more intuitive, and safer human machine interface design. In addition, it also requires the developers’ creative thinking and capabilities in hardware and software design. CWMX6-Q7 CPU module will be the best choice for shortening the time for helping developers in their developments.
