Mengenal Software HMI

HMI (Human Machine Interface) merupakan perangkat perantaraan antara mesin dan manusia. HMI berfungsi sebagai media untuk mengontrol, mengoperasikan dan menganalisa mesin-mesin yang dioperasikan dengan menggunakan PLC. Saat ini banyak sekali produk-produk untuk aplikasi ini. Dibawah ini saya akan sedikit menjelaskan berbagai jenis HMI yang sering digunakan untuk aplikasi-aplikasi di industri.

Software HMI yang bekerja di bawah sistem operasi Windows yang saya ketahui antara lain:

  1. Wonderware Intouch cek di http://www.wonderware.com
  2. WinCC Flexible dari Siemens
  3. I-FIX dari GE Fanuc cek di http://www.intellution.com
  4. CX Supervisor dari Omron
  5. RSView dari Allen Bradley
  6. Citect bisa di cek di http://www.citect.com/
  7. Dan masih banyak lagi yang lainnya…

Sejarah PLC? Bisa dilihat disini.

This timeline of the development of the PLC by different manufacturers is a work in progress. If you have something to contribute or correct especially concerning Siemens or Mitsubishi then please contact me.

PLCdev’s article on The Birth of the PLC gives more information on how programmable logic controllers first got started.

Resources for this time line:

  • Allen Bradley to Rockwell Automation history
  • Omron PLCs
  • General Electric Fanuc PLCs:
  • First hand experiences and memories

    Buku PLC Gratis

    Silahkan Download buku PLC Gratis di bawah ini.

    Automated Manufacturing Systems; PLCs

    This is a manuscript for a PLC based control system book that is currently being used for teaching an undergraduate controls course EGR 450 – Manufacturing Controls. The course and book focus on the Allen Bradley family of controllers, thus allowing a deeper topic coverage than is normal in PLC books.


    The version 5.0 book posted on this page is updated to focus on the Allen Bradley ControlLogix controllers. The older book focuses on the PLC-5 and Micrologix platforms and can be found on a copy of the previous page. Version 5.0 is guaranteed to contain mistakes, but a cleaner version will be available in mid-July.

    A Free Book…

    Interesting facts

    Between May 6 and August 22, 2003 the book was downloaded 88973 times from the main website. This does not include downloads from other websites that have copies of the book. It also does not include copies downloaded over the previous years. Yesterday (August 21) the book was downloaded 563 times. In the same time period individual chapters were downloaded in PDF and RTF formats 88086 times. Most interestingly is that the PLC book webpage was only accessed 14001 times. This suggests that people have created links, or are using external links to access the book directly.
