Human Machine Interface Upgrades

Oftentimes, upgrading your Human Machine Interface (HMI) can increase the effectiveness of your operations and maintenance teams, resulting in increased process availability while helping you get back on line faster when unplanned downtime occurs.  NOREC Automation engineers have implemented HMI upgrades on a variety of utility, process and discrete manufacturing applications.

The function of an HMI is to collect raw data from remote sources and to convert the raw data into useful information presented in graphical displays, tables, trends, and reports. The engineers at NOREC Automation design HMI’s which are intuitive for your operations and maintenance staff, and which provide useful information for management analysis. This approach can help you drive improved quality, throughput and process availability. Some of the various types of displays common in an HMI package include:

  • Display of Real-Time Process Information on P&ID style graphical displays
  • Historical Data Collection, Storage, and Retrieval
  • Alarm Detection and Annunciation
  • Secure Environment Preventing Unauthorized Access to selected control functions
  • Process Tuning Displays
  • Customized Trends
  • Engineering Maintenance screens
