Operation, visualisation and controlEaton is offering machine and system builders a new range of HMI and HMI-PLC panels for operation, visualisation and control. The touch panels provide clear and flexible menu guidance in any language required. Control, regulation, positioning and fieldbus communication are implemented using the Xsoft-CoDeSys-2 programming language. The graphical user interface can be created with Eaton's user-friendly Galileo visualisation software. Machine manufacturers can thus sell their machines worldwide with only one hardware and software solution required.
The Galileo visualisation software offers the user several functions for programming all graphical operating devices from the Micro Innovation and Eaton HMI product range. User-friendliness is a key feature of the software - it is easy to learn and ensures intuitive operation. Ready-to-use functions and many basic objects provided enable the user to design the panel visualisation exactly as required. A runtime preview, the so-called Inspector, makes it possible to simulate the results of the designed visualisation during the development stage.
The new Galileo software release now offers objects for an even more user-friendly tool and greater development ease. The developers placed considerable importance on a modern design for the user interface and provide the user with different interface styles. For the first time, users can position their objects on different levels and create user-defined data types.
Continuous upward compatibility for projects, and can run efficiently on all WinCE panels. Visualisation design can be carried out in several different languages and the country-specific keyboard layout is also provided for inputs. The complete Unicode character set including Asian characters is supported. The languages and value scaling can be changed, even when the program is running. With around 150 communication drivers, Galileo is also compatible with all standard protocols, such as Siemens Simatic, Rockwell PLC and ControlLogix, Omron, CoDeSysV2/V3, Eaton Easy and many more. Up to eight communication channels can be created in parallel and data can be synchronised easily.
