The iX HMI solution, from Beijer Electronics, lifts the concept of an HMI solution from merely being a functional add-on to becoming an integral part of a user experience with advanced 3D-style graphics, icon-based navigation and controls. Users can take advantage of vector-based graphics, enabling them to scale and rotate objects, which stay crystal clear without jagged edges or inconsistent colour transitions. The import of WPF objects and .Net controls allows users to employ the resources behind Microsoft´s .Net framework. Adding drop shadows and bevels, and choosing opacity for objects in addition to other graphical effects, are just a few functions that help to create a realistic user environment, according to the company. iX also enables users to incorporate Windows media objects like Media Player, Internet Explorer and PDF viewer.
