Custom HMI

A Custom HMI (Human-Machine Interface) is designed to facilitate interaction between humans and machines, typically in the context of industrial or technological systems. As the name suggests, custom HMIs are custom designed for certain machines to match the requirements of the application or the preferences of the user. In contrast, standard HMIs usually use pre-built interfaces or are one entirely.

Collaborative Design Process

Custom HMIs are designed from scratch or adapted from existing designs. The design process needs to involve close collaboration between designers, engineers, and end-users to ensure that the interface effectively supports the tasks and workflows of the intended users.

What Customization Looks Like

The primary goal of a Custom HMI is to enhance user experience by providing an intuitive, efficient, and ergonomic interface. This is primarily accomplished by minimizing user input and ensuring the interface provides clear feedback to the user such as a green light signifying a successful input. Custom HMIs integrate hardware and software such as sensors, actuators, control systems, and databases, to provide a holistically user friendly system.

Custom HMIs often offer a range of customization options, allowing users to personalize the interface based on their aesthetic preferences and requirements. The most important elements to customize include the layout, visual elements, navigation flow, and functionality. Other important customizable elements include configurable dashboards, color schemes, alarm settings, and user profiles.

Custom HMIs should also be scalable to accommodate future expansions or modifications based on changing user requirements and technological advancements.

Security Considerations

Many applications that use custom HMIs are either critical machines or contain highly sensitive information, thus security is a significant concern. Custom HMIs should incorporate security features to protect against unauthorized access, data breaches, and cyber-attacks.
