HMI animations with new B&R Paper widget
February 27, 2018 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Feb. 27, 2018 – A new widget offered with B&R’s web-based HMI solution aims to make it easier for users to visualize complex manufacturing processes with dynamic HMI content. Called Paper, the widget allows users to animate SVG images with runtime data.
Simply drag and drop the widget onto the desired page in the HMI application and configure it there. At runtime, animation of the SVG image can be controlled directly from the application program, says B&R. Rotations, transitions and movements can all be animated from a single SVG image, which the company says will help save time and cost. Since SVG images are based on vector graphics, they retain their high-resolution without any loss of quality even when zoomed in, B&R adds.
