Typical HMI Systems developed by EAO include control panels for system start-up and shutdown with emergency-stop functions; handheld remote controls and tethered pendants with displays and short-travel keyboards; and touchscreen interfaces with CANbus connectivity.
Each one of these innovative, reliable and intuitive control panels is custom-built for a particular machine by EAO’s team of in-house experts. Typically they will utilise a mix of technologies that might include a touch screen or display, membrane keypad, discreet pushbuttons and emergency-stop functions built into a protective housing and connected through an appropriate serial bus to simplify connectivity and diagnostics.
Alongside the HMI systems, EAO manufactures one of the world's largest ranges of high-performance components for machinery control panels including:
· Protective shrouds to satisfy the SEMI S2-93/12.4c standard.
· 22mm illuminated E-stops with foolproof operation: Series 84
· Space-saving pushbuttons for compact control panels: Series 51
All components are available in a wide choice of actuators, materials, lenses and mounting styles built to the highest quality and design standards. Available worldwide, they are manufactured to international standards including CE, RoHS, CB – EN/IEC 60947-5-1, UL, NFF 16-102, CSA, CCC, GOST, German Lloyd (see individual products).
