Application: Realizing Human–Robot Control and MES Management with Industrial HMI Solution

Industry 4.0 is changing the way manufacturing industry operates. Manufacturers are leveraging advanced technologies such as robotics and automation systems to improve productivity and efficiency. As a result, human–machine interfaces (HMIs) are becoming more important in their role in the digital connected  of humans and machines.

Anewtech AD-PPC-3120S Industrial Panel PC Advantech Industrial Touch Computer

The PPC-3120S ultra slim panel PC, bundled with WebAccess/HMI software, and the PPC-IPS-AE uninterruptible power supply (UPS) module. The project contains two parts: human robot control and MES management.

For the human–robot control, the PPC-3120S was installed to provide an HMI for each work station. This unit was responsible for receiving work orders from the MES via the network while also being connected to PLCs via Profinet in order to control the robotics. It also displayed the SOP to help ensure that staff perform their job properly.

For MES management, the PPC- 3120S can act as a general computer for assembly line operation monitoring and rework management. With a compact form factor and fanless design, the 12.1” PPC- 3120S is an ultra-slim industrial-grade panel PC that users can freely install at their own convenience.

The Intel® Celeron® N2930 processor ensures that the PPC-3120S delivers high-performance computing in an x86 development environment, providing flexibility for system developers in designing a multi-functional system. Equipped with a die-cast aluminum alloy enclosure and a touch screen with an IP65 rating for the front panel, the PPC-3120S also offers anti-shock and anti-vibration that make it solid and highly durable.

For software, WebAccess/HMI provides a convenient graphical programming environment for system developers to intuitively create HMI screens, thus reducing programming time. With its browser-based interface, users can remotely engineer, monitor, and control the system via any standard browser such as IE. Supporting hundreds of industrial communication protocols, the PPC-3120S can be connected to a range of devices such as PLCs.
