Better assembly begins here
GRID HMI is a next-generation factory integration device — the heart of your work instruction and error prevention system. Connected tools, inventory status and networking between the shop floor and the enterprise combine with smart worker guidance and performance monitoring.
- Assembly sequence indicators
- Personalized instruction
- Handle multiple build recipes
- 21" capacitive touch screen
- Step status and details
- Tool state awareness
- Soft stacklight (external optional)
- VESA mount
- IO-Link port
- HDMI 1080p output
- Dual Ethernet
- 4 x USB 2.0 ports (host)
- Ruggedized enclosure
Plug in smart tools, a second 1080p display, PoE devices and other peripherals to extend the GRID HMI solution and meet the needs of your manufacturing environment.
IO-Link simplifies the connection and integration of sensors and actuators to control systems, eliminating the need for serial configuration or network addressing.
Connect up to 4 USB 2.0 devices, like smart tools, external storage, mice, keyboards and more.
Use a second 1080p display to give assembly workers the bigger picture.
Two Ethernet ports with up to 1 Gb speeds and PoE (at single port).
Provide work instruction and guidance that is specific to the worker, product, tool, part and step
An intuitive interface makes instructions and feedback clear and consistent across locations and shift changes
Connect tools, sensors and actuators to ensure that assembly steps are executed quickly and correctly
Flexible network options allow connections from the shop floor to the enterprise
Analyze real-time production data from the assembly line
Diagnose process bottlenecks and part shortages
Capture data for compliance programs
Network easily with other systems
Factory integration requires communication across protocols and machines, old and new. GRID HMI can serve as the central node and gateway, bridging manufacturing systems with planning, logistics, legacy and inventory operations.
Manage units remotely and securely
Remote management is more important than ever. GRID HMI devices were designed from the ground up with remote connectivity and security in mind.
Every device in the series uses industrial-grade hardware and software security strategies. Enjoy the convenience of managing from anywhere and the peace of mind that only trusted users have access.
Customize the built-in web apps...
User interface components are written in HTML/CSS/JS
I/O and comms are JS objects accessible via API
... or build your own with a familiar stack
GRID HMI apps are built from a common web stack, so the talent pool for in-house or outsourced development is large.
