iView Advanced HMI Controller (2nd gen.)


IMO’s 2nd generation range of iView HMI’s are available in five touch screen sizes 4.3”, 7.0”, 10.4”, 12.1” and 15.0”. The HMI range options include E Series models for simple applications, M Series models for medium range applications and H Series models with higher capability for more demanding applications.

The new HMI’s have high resolution 65K colour resistive touch LCD TFT screens operating on an ARM based Processor. The compact and well-designed bodies are packed with features. Communication and data logging is made easy by incorporating a number of ports; two USB, one Ethernet, up to five Serial ports and removable media ports. These features make it possible to connect to printers, keyboards or a mouse, and data storage on a microSD™ card or USB Flash Drive.

Now featuring IoT functionality, the 2nd generation iView is rich in communication features, and allows for remote connectivity via VNC server or Android App “HMI In Hand” and IDCS remote functions. The iView has integrated Ethernet protocols (Modbus TCP/IP, BACnet/IP, Profinet/IP), and Serial protocols (including Modbus RTU, BACnet, Siemens MPI).

The included IMO iView Developer programming software is an exceptionally easy to use integrated development tool, featuring solution-oriented screen objects, high-end vector graphics, Windows font support for multi-language applications, recipes, alarms, data loggers and operation logging. Other functions include Trending, XY Graph, Alarm Monitoring and Time Scheduling.

IoT Features

IMO’s second generation of iView Advanced HMIs are provided with IoT features for remote monitoring and control, built-in as standard. The IoT features include IDCS, MQTT, “HMI-in-Hand” Android Application and Windows based software for remote capability. Functionality is available with the iView Developer (v4.0) configuration software. For information regarding complete functionality and pricing, email automation@imopc.com.

IDCS – Inter-Device Connection Service

The Inter-Device Connection Service (IDCS) is included with the new generation of iView Advanced HMIs, and accomplishes non-VPN remote monitoring, updating and controlling functions, with the following benefits:

  • Accomplishes most tasks remotely, making daily maintenance easier, thus reducing costs
  • Saves and retrieves data remotely to non-static IP, public IP and VPN supported devices
  • Remote download / upload of HMI and PLC applications
  • VNC built-in, HMI-in-Hand Android Application, supports monitor / control multiple HMIs by mobile devices

MQTT – Message Queuing Telemetry Transport

The Message Queuing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) is designed to be open, simple and lightweight. It is a publisher / subscriber-based communication protocol, which allows message-based transfer between applications. The MQTT is suitable for continuous monitoring of sensory data, such as level, temperature, pressure etc.
