The human-machine interface layout design of industrial displays should be simple, balanced and consistent in style according to ergonomic requirements. So what is the layout and structure of the industrial display interface? The following is a simple analysis for you.
1. Process interface
This level contains the details of the specified process part and shows which equipment object belongs to that process part, and the level also shows the equipment object corresponding to the alarm.
2. Detailed interface
This level provides information on individual device objects, such as controllers, control valves, control motors, etc., and displays industrial PC messages, status and process values.
3. Overview interface
This layer contains the information displayed by the different system parts in the system, and how to use these system parts to work together.
1. The concept of selection interface depends on multiple interfaces
The interface can be designed as a loop, if running a large number of interfaces, a reasonable structure must be designed to open the interface, choosing a simple and permanent structure so that the operator can quickly understand how to open the interface.
2. It is limited for users to process information stars at one time. A large amount of information accumulated on the industrial PC screen will affect the interface friendliness. In order to provide enough information stars while ensuring the simplicity of the interface, the design adopts control classification and layering. arrangement.
Hierarchy refers to dividing the controls into multiple groups according to their functions, and each group is refined into multiple levels according to its logical relationship. Using the first-level buttons to control the pop-up and hiding of the second-level buttons ensures the simplicity of the interface.
Layering is to expand buttons of different levels vertically in different areas, and there are clear dividing lines between the areas. When a button is used to pop up the lower-level button, other buttons of the same level are hidden to make the logical relationship clearer.
3. According to the principle of consistency, ensure that all objects on the industrial PC screen, such as windows, buttons, menus, etc., have the same style. The size, bump effect, label font and font size of the buttons at all levels are consistent, and the color of the buttons is consistent with the background color of the interface.
The shell material of the industrial display screen is made of metal, and the internal board lines are industrialized design, which is not easy to age; the concept of energy saving and environmental protection is reflected in the low energy consumption design, the use of environmentally friendly materials, and the regular appearance is convenient for splicing, combined installation and other industrial needs.
Industrial displays are displays used in industrial control processes or equipment. The main difference between industrial displays and civilian or commercial displays is the shell design, and industrial displays are all-steel designs.
The price of industrial displays is relatively expensive. The protection level of industrial displays is represented by IP68. The former is the dustproof level, and the latter is the waterproof level. The dustproof level is 6, and the waterproof level is 8.
Ordinary liquid crystal displays for household or personal use will pay more attention to power consumption, and advocate environmental protection and energy saving. In this regard, industrial displays do not deliberately require lower power consumption, but only require stability; additional cooling systems and high-brightness backlight design will greatly increase power consumption.
The appearance of industrial displays is very similar to that of ordinary LCD screens, but there are big differences in materials, etc. Industrial LCD displays have a variety of display sizes and installation methods.
Different from ordinary liquid crystal displays, industrial displays can adapt to extreme environments, operate stably, and have a long service life.
