The following video represents an example of HMI in Industrial applications. In particular, in this project I used an Android multi touch that runs on Cortex A8 at 1Ghz and show how it can greatly control an AC drive. Specifically, I used a Allen-Bradley adjustable frequency AC drive.
The Android UI on the touch screen device allows to:
- Start/Stop the motor
- Set the direction (forward, backward)
- Manage the output relay
- Control the status of the digital inputs
- See the parameters such as the current, frequency and output voltage
- Set the motor frequency
