EAO introduces its HMIS (Human Machine Interface Systems) department which provides end users with the designs and manufacturing capabilities of interface systems within the guidelines of customer specific requirements. EAO solves complex HMI issues by examining technical, ergonomic and commercial specifications. They align equipment and tasks which enable users and technology to work in complete harmony.
As technology systems grow more complex, issues of end product safety, ease of operation, and reducing the risk of human error are becoming increasingly important. Designers today know that the operational performance, manufacturing efficiency, and safety range of systems are closely related to the interaction between humans and machines ‚â€“ the Human Machine Interface (HMI). EAO expertly combines the value of quality, ergonomics, and aesthetics to provide a functionally efficient response all within the guidelines of important industry standards. For the customer, the benefits include more clearly-defined, functional controls and greater comfort of use for the operator. This reduces the likelihood of errors in operation and the dangers associated with poorly defined controls.
Fast delivery, accurate quotations, and quick turn around are all a benefit EAO can supply due to 60 plus years of market experience, award winning design ingenuity, and understood leadership within the HMI environment. Examples of EAO‚â€™s HMIS capabilities can be found, along with an exciting selection of ergonomically designed control panels, in an online presentation at www.eao.com/cp.
These panels have been developed for a diverse range of applications, with the highest degree of modern materials and technology used. Included are marine control panels, glass-making machines, driver controls, passenger access, and disabled-access lifts. Each one has been built to a unique design specification according to the requirements of the application and industry standards.
Among those displayed are:
‚â€¢A rugged membrane switch panel with two-stage illumination, a UV stabilized front foil and customizable legend printing.
‚â€¢A rugged stainless steel panel with halo illuminated switches, CANbus interfaces and special connectors.
‚â€¢Membrane switches within a stainless steel housing containing microcontroller.
‚â€¢A yacht control panel featuring variable illumination, dimming circuits, microprocessor and customizable key legends.
