Having said this, one thing that often gets over looked is the graphics. Graphics play just as much an important role as a perfectly running project does. The man-machine interface should not only allow the operator to navigate the application’s pages to find information quickly, it should also provide clear and eye catching visuals of what they see.
The Movicon.NExT suite of graphics
Movicon.NExT allows you to get truly unique HMI pages that other software platform products on the market find hard to compete with. Partly using or not using these powerful graphics altogether would mean jeopardizing the development of a truly exclusive project that would otherwise enhance the study and development underlying the project’s inception.
Movicon.NExT is designed for developing supervision projects by using very impressive graphics that also include 2D and 3D. Movicon.NExT completely exploits the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) technology and the Direct X graphics acceleration to enable users to create screen page graphics with exceptional quality that is superior to other products which are still based on the obsolete the WinForm and GDI technology. The platform’s graphics library has a rich selection of symbols divided by category which have been completely rewritten in XAML. Additional symbols and images can also be used and imported in different formats such as the BMP, PNG, JPG and other multimedia formats.
A lot of research has gone into creating user-friendly interface graphics. You will find a lot of information relating to this subject if you search for High Performance HMI. Progea has also published its own White Paper on HMI Design. If you wish to have further information or advice relating to interface graphics design, please contact the Progea Team who are always on hand to give you all the support and assistance you need to get the best out of using the Movicon.NExT graphics.
