Beijer Electronics´ HMI solution, iX version 1.30, has upgraded software with extended features that result in greater functionality in development and runtime operation, as well as quicker screen changes and project builds. Other improvements are a new scroll function, even better data uploads and downloads, and Chinese language support. The iX Developer acts as a universal project-planning tool for all products of the iX Panel series. Its range includes touch and keypad units from 11- to 48-cm (4.3- to 19-inch) display sizes. Animated GIF-files make the screen come alive and create a strong user attendance for a safe operation. The improved toggle-tag feature helps the user to create a backlit switch in a flash, clearly showing the status of the push buttons. The database export feature allows the summarizing of production data and alarm lists into complete reports with ease. Finally, the Excel-formatted file is ready to be analysed in external software programs. In the runtime mode, the new alarm-viewer feature offers an improved navigation in alarm lists. By using the touch-scroll feature, the user is able to sift through long lists quickly and intuitively.
