Industrial Communication

Industrial Communication What are the benefits of the change of generations in HMI systems? Many young people who have grown up in the age of Smartphone and Tablet PC are now entering professional life, applying expectations from the consumer world to the industry. Apps, cloud, multitouch, gesture operation, wide screen formats and consistent operating concepts, as well as continuous availability, will be expected in future. Additionally, the demands to industry are increasing. Productivity, efficiency and real time are only some keywords. Technical apps in the environment of control technology already offer support in everyday work. Simple operation and a precisely matching function scope of the apps are required in the HMI-environment.
