EZSoft HMI Features & Benefits

Soft HMI for Windows 7 & Windows 10 PCs

It is the lowest cost easy to use Soft HMI that runs on any Panel PC. Single user license is $599 and Development software is $149. It has practically unlimited number of tags and screens.

Patented HMI on-line edit, No downtime

All HMIs except for EZTouch, require the machine or process to be shut down to make a change in the HMI program. While a new program is being uploaded to the HMI, it is non-functional and hence the machine can’t be allowed to operate during this time. Every time the HMI program is edited, there is machine down time of typically an hour. EZSoft HMI has a patented on-line edit exceptionally innovative feature that allows the HMI program to be edited without the machine missing a beat.

In a recent study, more than 2/3rds of control engineers stated that after the HMI is installed in a machine or process, the plant user, system integrator or OEM requests some change in the screen design at least 10 times in the first 90 days following installation. Even if you were able to make the change in half-an-hour, machine/process will be down by 0.5 hr. each time change is made. Taking downtime at even a low cost of $1000/hr., the patented unique HMI online feature in EZSoft HMI, saves you at least $5000 in just first 3 months of operation.

Communication interface to practically all PLC Serial and EtherNet protocols.

EZSoft HMI can communicate to any PLC over a serial link or on Ethernet. The Panel PC for EZSoft HMI must have serial (485) and Ethernet ports. Examples are: DH485, Modbus, EZPLC, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, GE SRTP, Siemens ISO and many others.

Note: We recommend use of EZPanel PC with EZSoft HMI preloaded that has both serial and ethernet ports.

Tiny EZminiWifi installed on the EZSoft HMI panel allows Laptop to program HMI from 50 ft. away. $49

This tiny little module that plugs into one of the serial ports in the HMI panel (we recommend installing on every HMI) allows a programmer to connect his/her laptop to the HMI panel without a cable. So many times, it is not so easy to reach the Operator console to connect the programming cable to the HMI panel. Combination of our patented On-Line Edit feature and EZminiWifi becomes an exceptionally innovative solution to making changes on HMI screens without having to open up the control cabinet and connect the Programming cable.

Dual PLC Drivers with automatic tag conversion.

EZSoft HMI panels have the capability to simultaneously talk to two PLC networks. For example, Ethernet I/P on one side and Modbus RTU on the other side. Tags are automatically converted. This allows the two networks to communicate to each other through EZSoft HMI.

Best looking objects and animation with 65K colors.

EZSoft HMIs have the best looking objects simulating real life panel actuators and indicators. And the animation of process is great.

Unicode for multiple languages.

All EZSoft HMIs have a Unicode feature for multiple languages, that is each Object can be displayed in different languages. This allows every operator of the HMI to be able to communicate to it in the language of his or her choice.

Easiest Programming Software, design time in hrs not days.

There is a reason why our company is called EZAutomation and our HMI is called EZTouch. We make it so easy to learn our programming language that no user, hundreds of thousands so far, thank you, ever had to attend any class to learn the programming. Most of our competitor’s products, like from Rockwell, Siemens, Mitsubishi, Unitronics, Schneider, Maple and others require a 3-5 day class to learn how to program their products. Our programming language is so intuitive and so simple that the design time for any screen and the entire project is reduced to hours instead of days.

Full Project simulation on your PC.

EZTouch programming software allows you to preview and test your entire project by our Project simulation feature on your PC itself before loading it up in your EZSoft HMI panel. It’s a great time saver for programmers.

“C level” scripting and logic expressions.

This unique feature in EZSoft HMI panels products off loads a very substantial burden on the PLC and reduces PLC scan time, number of rungs, and size of memory, as these calculations can be done essentially off-line in HMI.

Data-logging, Recipes, Emails, USBs. Free Chart recorder.

EZSoft HMI panels can store HMI/PLC data on USB or micro SD card and remotely retrive this data real-time over Internet using AVG File Manager. The USB drive or the micro SD serves as a free chart recoder saving the cost of an external chart recorder costing hundereds of thousands of dollars.

Most advanced Alarm management and logging.

*New Feature: EZSoft HMI now provides an Alarm database, Alarm preview, Alarm history, Alarm count, Alarm protection and a special feature to send Alarm directly to EZMarquee. It also allows for the EZSoft HMI to email or text alarm messages.

Plantview Capability

EZSoft HMIs in a plant or multiple plants, have the capability of getting monitored by using EZPlantview software allowing all critical parameters to be collected and displayed in the individual EZSoft HMI which can be viewed on one or multiple large screens in a control room.

On-Screen Recipe Edit.

EZSoft HMIs feature an on-screen recipe edit where you can edit the recipe on the HMI itself without needing to connect to a laptop with programming software.

Remote Monitoring and Control, Smart phones & Ethernet.

All EZSoft HMIs have a remote monitoring and control feature where you can monitor and control the functionality of an HMI remotely via a Smart phone with iOS or Android OS. RMC can also be done over Ethernet connection in all EZSoft HMIs.

Unique Visibility tag for best screen space utilization.

EZSoft HMIs have an extremely innovative Visibility tag on all objects. Object appears on the screen only if the visibility tag is true. Along with EZTouch’s feature of overlapping objects, visibility tag is a great space saver on the screen.

Pass-through programming for all PLCs.

All EZSoft HMIs allow pass-through programming of any device connected to the HMI, whether it is a PLC, PAC or a Drive. PLC Programming software of any make, for example Rockwell can pass through the same programming port as the EZTouch programming software making it very convenient to program the whole control system through just one port/connection.

 

Patented HMI on-line edit, No Machine Shutdown, No downtime!

You wouldn’t buy a PLC today
if it didn’t have On-Line Edit...

...So why should you have to buy a Touch
Panel without On-Line Programming?

Only the EZTouch® has On-Line Programming

1.

After a machine upgrade including a new
PLC and Operator Interface, our System
Integrator asked the Machine Operator what
he would like to see better yet. The Operator
said the new “computer” was great with all
the colors but he missed the old pressure
gauge.

2.

Our System Integrator immediately pulled
out his notebook computer, hooked it up to
the Touch panel, launched his programming
software and put it in On-Line mode.

3.

And then, right in front of the operator’s eyes,
moved the other objects on the screen and
put an Analog Meter exactly to the operator’s
color taste, without ever having to shut down
the machine.

4.

All this took less than 2 minutes.
Operator: “Now that is nice!”
Let’s get these on all the
machines.”
