October 18, 2017 - Industrial HMI (Human Machine Interface) provider, WEINTEK USA introduced their latest solution for the HMI workspace, the MT8103iE HMI, incorporating a secure, built in Wi-Fi capability designed for harsh and/or IIoT environments.
The MT8103iE HMI solution provides a Wi-Fi communication link that is compliant with the 802.11b/g/n wireless communication standard and therefore offers a connection via WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, allowing the HMI to collect and send data in a safe and secure protocol. The MT8103iE also contains an Ethernet port to provide the required PLC/controller connection. While lighter and slimmer than the MT8100i, the MT8103iE provides a 10.1 inch higher resolution, wider viewing angle and longer life (50,000 hours) display. Additionally since the EasyAccess 2.0 license is included, there is no need to pay for an activation card.
When the engineers connect to the MT8103iE through a wireless router, they can download their HMI projects directly to the HMI and operate it via VNC or remote HMI mode without physically contacting the device in any way. The ability to communicate wirelessly with the HMI to introduce or modify programming, to test, monitor, troubleshoot or debug the HMI is a step in the evolution of the machine control space.
