Advantages of Multi-Touch in HMI applications at control stations / operator panels

  • Maximum operating safety
  • Increased usability
  • Reduced training time due to more intuitive handling and much more!

Examples where Multi-Touch gestures can be used:

  • Swipe in order to switch between different plant screens;
  • Zoom to plant screens using two fingers;
  • Drag and drop individual screen elements e.g. to create a personalized screen on the HMI, using various elements;
  • Specified function gestures, e.g. confirmation of an alarm drawn by a finger tick
  • Two hand operation on the touch screen (operator panel) e.g. for safety;
  • Native Multi-Touch gestures such as zooming and scrolling in zenon screens (e.g. Extended Trend);
  • ... and in many more applications.

Fast Facts
