An often-overlooked element of a furnace is the HMI (Human Machine Interface). This is the connection between the operator and the furnace. There are all kinds of HMI systems, installed on many different hardware and software platforms. But what is most important is that the screens are intuitive to understand, easy to navigate, and have very clear functionality. It is also helpful to not overburden the operator with an overwhelming display with hundreds of small numbers, indicator lights, and unidentifiable tags.
CICPittsburghLLC emphasizes ease of use in all aspects of our furnace designs. And so it is with the HMI system we deploy on new furnaces, as well as on control system upgrades.
Contact CIC Pittsburgh for more information about upgrading your control system and HMI. Your operators will thank you!
