Control solutions with X2 HMI panels

HMI and control for a wide range of applications

Try the combination of two established automation products - the X2 operator panels with integrated CODESYS PLC functionality. Thanks to the power of modern technology, the operator interface and the control logic can be united in one single compact hardware device. Just add distributed I/Os and you'll get an elegant, scalable and cost-effective solution that's really cutting-edge.

Controling a packaging line with an HMI with CODESYS control

Case study: JT Mekaniske, Norway

A production facility controlled by a single Beijer Electronics’ operator panel with CODESYS control.


Combining the best of two worlds

HMI with integrated CODESYS PLC functionality gives you a lean automation solution. It combines visualization and control in an integrated development environment that allows faster system design.

Construction costs are reduce by eliminating components and wiring. Support costs are also reduced and operations improved by centralizing remote access and administration.

PLC functionality integrated in an HMI panel?

Traditionally PLCs and HMI panels have been considered as being two separate systems. This has changed with newer types of HMI panels which combine the HMI and PLC functionality by integrating e.g. CODESYS control running on the same powerful processor in the operator panel. The processing capacity of multicore processors are capable of delivering both fast screen changes and program execution securing high-performance in demanding applications. A CODESYS control application in the display is supported by a fully integrated development system providing access to all five IEC 61131-3 programming languages offering versatility in PLC programming. IO signals for the PLC and HMI are connected via distributed IOs and provide a flexible and cost-effective solution.
