On-the-go HMI access

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Rockwell Automation has introduced the Allen-Bradley MobileView tethered operator interface. The mobile terminal is claimed to give plant and industrial personnel the freedom to take a machine's human-machine interface (HMI) with them to make real-time adjustments to out-of-view applications.

The MobileView tethered operator interface is suitable for maintenance tasks, machine setup or calibration activities, and other HMI applications that require the operator to see the machine. The inclusion of a hardwired e-stop button and three-position enabling switch also supports applications that require local safety functionality.

The interface complements the Allen-Bradley PanelView graphic terminals, giving manufacturers and industrial operators a range of fixed and mobile terminals for different applications. It also uses the FactoryTalk View Machine Edition HMI software from Rockwell, allowing users to develop and re-use their software applications across the MobileView and PanelView platforms.

Three cable-length options, ranging from 16.4 to 49.2ft, give flexibility for different machines and production lines. The interface uses a 10in display with resistive touch screen, 2GByte internal SD card for application storage, and USB 2.0 port for high-speed data transfer.
