Unique Design Concept
Look forward to the first off-the-shelf HMI concept that is as flexible as your requirements and at the same time sets a new standard for the design of modern human-machine interfaces. Rely on an HMI that grows with your requirements and can always be flexibly and easily retrofitted afterwards.
HMI installation options
Rear Mount HMI
Mounting is done from the inside. The protection of the front is ensured by a suitable seal or a flush surrounding facing.
Panel Mount HMI
This HMI is mounted on the front and fixed from the inside. This variant is particularly suitable for quick installation and is nevertheless robust against pressure.
Flexy Vision HMI
Flexible mountable standard HMI according to VESA mounting standard. Available with ARM or Intel/x86 processor as standard.
Proven use of our machine interfaces (MMI)
Our Panel Mount variant has more than proven itself in industrial installations. The robust frame prevents damage from external influences. In applications such as professional kitchen equipment, digital signage or medical & laboratory technology, our flush mount installation variant is increasingly being used. The flush-mounted panel does not simply have a high-quality appearance, it also prevents germs and dirt from settling in the indentations. The Rear Mount has reliably proven itself as a cost-efficient all-purpose installation variant. If you are looking for a touch control unit to control monitoring modules, a login module or a central unit to control and reduce technical complexity, the Flexy Vision series is the right choice for you.
The four variants of our man-machine interfaces (MMI) give you complete freedom when planning your end device. We consult you on which variant best suits your product or how we have to adapt the screw connection, for example, so that the touch panel including the single board computer can be optimally installed. We also adapt interfaces optimally to your requirements. In addition to the customisable human machine interface solutions, the Flexy Vision series rounds off the spectrum of possibilities in the best possible way. The Flexy Vision modules not only have a high-quality look due to the aluminium housing, but the screw connection according to the VESA standard also ensures the most flexible application possibilities.
No matter which installation option you prefer for the operation of your product, SECO delivers exactly the Human Machine Interface which can be easily integrated into your system. Choose between three different installation variants for the integration: Panel-, Flush- or Rear-Mount.
Seamlessly integrable embedded touch HMIs from SECO
Industrial IoT Management Platform
With CLEA, we offer a ground-breaking IoT/AI device/cloud suite that combines applications for artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, cloud computing and big data analysis into a single platform for managing and optimizing business operations and profitability.
CLEA runs on SECO’s HMI devices and also provides a cloud-based platform for remote management functions. On the HMI, CLEA collects data, provides local intelligent processing and optimisation and communicates with the cloud as needed. The cloud platform can aggregate and analyse data from a fleet of HMIs to identify trends, prioritize maintenance, coordinate remote diagnostics and provide software updates. Use artificial intelligence to transform data into directly applicable insights and, if desired, independently carry out optimisations. This intelligence can be monetized as value-added services provided to your customers.
With this combination of CLEA and our HMI solutions, you get the most out of machine interaction and reduce the technical complexity.
Proof of Concept
Are you unsure which installation variant is the most suitable for your project and whether your requirements are feasible? Consult with SECO and utilize our rapid prototyping service to quickly implement (within a few weeks) and verify your product concept.
Standardised & customised designs
Based on SECO’s commercial off-the-shelf HMI products, we can develop a customised product-optimised HMI solution. Add an interface, update mounting provisions, implement your company’s logo, customise the bezel, and more. Our proven modular system enables us to easily update the HMI according to your specifications with minimised cost, schedule, and risk.
Device Design and Manufacturing
SECO is not only an HMI subassembly and circuit board provider. We have extensive expertise in designing and manufacturing full devices. Our services range from the design of the device incorporating the HMI, to pre-installation of the customer's software within the HMI, to the assembly of the full device incorporating the HMI (including a customer-designed device).
SECO offers world-class, in-house manufacturing at our production sites in Italy, Germany and China. With ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certifications and circuit board and device level assembly, SECO provides low cost, high quality, one-stop production backed by global supply chain excellence.
With expertise in most aspects of embedded software, SECO can modify BIOS or bootloader software, and provide firmware, driver, and Linux, Android or RTOS BSP development. We also provide advanced edge and cloud computing solutions. All solutions are complemented by long-term support through the entire product lifecycle.
What is a Human Machine Interface?
In Industry 4.0, a modern Human Machine Interface (HMI) is used to display and control all relevant information of machines and systems via graphical user interfaces (GUIs).
While the term can technically be applied to any technical possibility that allows a user to interact with a device, an HMI is most often used in the context of an embedded touch panel, which in addition to display, touch screen also has a corresponding computer unit.
Although HMI is the most common term for this technology, it is sometimes also referred to as man-machine interface (MMS), operator interface terminal, local operator interface or operator terminal.
