In addition, they can serve as a centralized control unit for manufacturing lines due to their non-volatile memory containing data recipes. They can execute both event logging and event triggering, as well as provide a video status monitoring feed. HMIs are incredibly use-friendly and allow you to personalize the graphical interface.
