Thanks to the close alliance with Phoenix Contact´s touch panel product ranges, the visualisation software is particularly suitable for HMI applications.
The adapted and simplified user interface provides users with an easy introduction to the engineering. With such a small learning curve, beginners achieve quick results. This saves both time and money. The software covers all the functions typically required in HMI applications. These include comprehensive graphics options, integrated event and alarm management, data logging, trend display, and even recipe management.
