Engineering is a crucial aspect in today’s cost equation. A reduced time to market as a result of efficient project development affords innovative companies a competitive edge. In iX there are no barriers between design and engineering. The iX user creates and configures HMI solutions in a streamlined user-friendly Windows environment with ribbon tabs, tool tips and an intuitive work approach – all of which leads to efficient project development.
The new iX HMI solution from Beijer Electronics
iX is the innovative HMI solution allowing users to express their ideas with a combination of state-of-the-art graphics and HMI functionality. iX covers the gap between proprietary operator panels and cost-intensive SCADA solutions. The iX software is supported by the next generation of Beijer Electronics’ award-winning operator panels and industrial PCs.
With the iX object browser users have superior control of objects while designing screens. The properties of any screen or object can be viewed or edited in the property grid. Uniform corporate screens and objects with time saving templates can be created and then reused in other screens or projects. Quick styles is an efficiency tool where users simply adjust the object style with shape fill and outline, drop shadow and bevel settings, etc.
With multiple objects editing users can easily edit common properties such as background color, font, security settings, tag, etc. for a group of objects at the same time. The navigation manager gives a clear overview of all screens and templates, and their interconnection. Users can also simulate their HMI application before applying it to the machine, even without connecting the controller system.
