#12 - HMI: CHATTING WITH YOUR MACHINES

On-the-Go HMI Access

Rockwell Automation’s MobileView Tethered Operator Interface is a mobile terminal offering HMI portability to factory personnel. Designed for applications where a static HMI system would be too restrictive, MobileView can be carried along by operators as they set up and operate their systems.

With a cable length of up to 49 ft (15 m), this tethered handheld HMI interface is part of Rockwell’s Allen‑Bradley line. It never needs to be charged and includes a hardwired E-Stop button for safety.

The company says MobileView is ideal for maintenance tasks, machine setup, calibration activities or any other HMI application that requires the operator to see the machine.

IP65 rated, the device uses Intel Atom processors, runs on Windows 7 Embedded and can be ordered with Rockwell’s FactoryTalk software pre-installed.
