Compact HMI

A scalable PC based SCADA system for real-time operation of your plant

Based on ABB‘s System 800xA DCS, Compact HMI can be used in diverse industries, ranging from a single operator workstation with 50 signals and scale up to applications with 10 000 signals and up to 10 HMI workplaces. It is designed to the Windows standard of interaction, supplemented with an information-centric object structure, to reflect the information in a plant. Compact HMI can not only directly interface to a large number of OPC-compliant controllers but also it comes with built in drivers to connect to major PLCs.
