Hismation: Human Machine Interface (HMI) Market

Human-machine interface (HMI) includes set of electronics or user interface used in industrial plants to control manufacturing and process. Some major components of Human machine interface (HMI) include display screens, keyboards, membrane switches, and other input or output system used by the operators to interact, monitor and control. Standard HMI system design consists of interaction specification, interface software specification and prototyping. HMI system solutions include various technologies and tools such as sensors, processors, communication devices and alarm switches which monitor and control the manufacturing process at industrial plants.

In the last decade, the human machine interface technology evolved rapidly and market has seen several developments. Advanced human machine interface technologies are increasingly replacing traditional interface methods with rising need to handle dynamic data. Previously, push buttons, lights, were used to monitor and control process in industrial plants which have been replaced by advanced digital control systems. Availability of electronic terminals at cheaper cost and rapid advancement in data handling technology influenced industrial manufacturers to upgrade their plants with advanced solutions. These technologies improve the production efficiency by adding new capabilities to the plant floor.

Following are some major evolutions in the human machine interface (HMI) technology:

1980s: In this phase, pushbutton, lights, gauges, dial, tubes and annunciators were used with process flow diagrams (PFDs) to monitor processes.

1980s – mid-1990s: Proprietary man-machine interface (MMI) from distributed control systems (DCS) companies used for control room applications. Programmable logic controllers (PLC) manufacturers used operator interface terminals (OITs) for on-machine tools.

Mid-1990s: During this phase PC were introduced to monitor and control industrial operations. Microsoft introduced Windows NT and Windows OS.

Mid 1990 to Late 1190: Ethernet was introduced in this phase and enabled boundless connectivity on plant floor

2000 – 2009:

Display technology introduced for hazardous areas.

Distributed control systems (DCS) companies started working on PC specification and HMI software solutions

Active matrix technology was introduced to overcome ghosting problems in passive matrix technology

Introduction of multiple touchscreen technology to support multiple applications and environmental conditions

Shift from keyboard, video and mouse extenders to thin client architecture Widescreen display systems were introduced based on consumer television technology

2010 – present:

Video technology and several multi-touch technologies introduced in this phase Emerging trend bring your own device (BYOD) increased the use of mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones, laptops and HMI applications to monitor and control industrial operations.

In today’s competitive market environment, industries across the world are facing challenges in order to manage and access large volume of operational information. HMI software solutions are evolving rapidly to process and access information at shop floor and other multiple locations. End users are now looking for advanced HMI solutions that support multi-node, multi-process applications with intuitive graphic interface for complex manufacturing and processing applications. End users prefer intelligence panels over traditional HMI systems due to rising need to process information at multiple locations in the plant.

HMI solution providers are closely working with their clients to provide highly compatible solutions for complete control of their plants. Vendors are focusing on developing advanced interface solutions that are easily compatible with PLC and SCADA systems. Rising demand is observed for integrated video streaming solutions for better diagnostics of the process in HMI technologies. Moreover, end users are looking for integrated SCADA and HMI solutions instead of installing these solutions separately. The demand for advanced HMI solutions is expected to increase with rising need to improve the efficiency of production process and reduce the risk of human errors.
