HMI Screen Level 1: Overview

The Overview Screen is the gateway to all other functionality of the HMI application, providing essential access points for automated control systems.

Global information is pinned at the top of the monitor, and attention is drawn to critical information, a feature of our smart manufacturing automation. Lower levels of machine functionality are clearly indicated by consistent window pop-up icons, facilitating seamless navigation for production line automation. Access to other screens is easily available via the Navigation Pane on the left, enhancing user experience in manufacturing plant automation:

The following features exist for all Interface Screens.
