InTouch Machine Edition

Highly scalable, flexible software that provides the tools for everything from advanced HMI/SCADA applications to small-footprint embedded applications.

InTouch Machine Edition is a customizable HMI designed specifically for the embedded and OEM applications where a small footprint and cost effective price are paramount. The compact footprint and full feature set enable OEMs, machine builders and end users to create intuitive, secure, and highly maintainable HMI applications for any industry.

The compact footprint of the InTouch Machine Edition makes it the ideal HMI for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It can deploy and run on small panel PCs, embedded devices and machines and supports remote HMI access on smartphones and tablets without any client installations.

InTouch Machine Edition is a natural extension of the current Wonderware HMI portfolio and the perfect complement for customers who already own Wonderware System Platform or Wonderware Historian. It provides embedded devices, local PC-based HMIs, SCADA systems with unique functionality for connecting automation systems end-to-end.

The Wonderware HMI for machines – Wonderware InTouch Machine Edition enables OEMs, panel builders, and end users to quickly create intuitive, secure and highly maintainable HMI applications for intelligent machines and for a variety of low level devices using embedded operating systems.

Easy Integration

Wonderware HMIs are especially well equipped to enable OEM partners to communicate with legacy software and systems. They also integrate with ERP and MES applications and can exchange communications with PLCs or SQL databases. The software also integrates easily with PLCs for servomotors, stepper motors, pick and place, and more. To ensure that machine HMIs offer this easy integration to OEM customers, Wonderware software is based on open architecture that adheres to multiple communications standards and patented SQL database connectivity.

Maintenance as a Service

Drawing on the capabilities now afforded by cloud computing and advanced connectivity, OEMS are beginning to innovate in the areas of machine support and maintenance packages. By empowering remote access and real-time monitoring capabilities, Wonderware HMI software makes it possible to offer preventive maintenance, quick troubleshooting tips or the ability to access machines and screens remotely for real-time service.

Reduce Risk/Costs & Accelerate Time to Market

Because Wonderware HMIs are built with the same technology that runs Wonderware System Platform, OEMs and VARs have even greater capability to reduce the time it takes to develop and maintain their solutions. They are also able to broaden their offerings, resulting in increased sales and profits. Combining Wonderware software with an OEM or VAR system provides an affordable, easy-to-use solution that enhances the overall products’ functionality and flexibility and provides the end user with an enhanced experience and increased scope for future expansion.

InTouch Machine Edition and System Platform integration enables IIoT solutions

With the advent of Internet of Things, not only will the number of embedded devices used for M2M data exchange increase, but demand for machine functionality will also rise sharply, including demand for inter-device interoperability, ability to exchange data with cloud-based systems and need for user-friendly remote configuration and maintenance.

Unlock and harness the machine data from your embedded devices by installing InTouch Machine Edition directly on your devices and expose it via your existing System Platform or archive it in a cloud-based historian using Wonderware Online. Enjoy limitless scalability.

Putting Machine Data To Work Through Integration With Wonderware System Platform

InTouch Machine Edition enables a line of sight from Wonderware System Platform SCADA applications down to embedded machine-based small systems. Configure remote machines directly from System Platform.

Monitor machine status and performance against OMAC PackML data and OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) standards. Changes implemented in the InTouch Machine Edition applications update automatically to System Platform SCADA applications.

  • Leverage your Wonderware System Platform investment by sharing data from embedded devices across multiple plants
  • Native integration with Wonderware System Platform and Wonderware Historian and Wonderware Online facilitates easy, cross-site reporting and performance metrics
  • Native System Platform integration with InTouch Machine Edition enables collection, historization of tag values and alarms status without impacting existing System Platform licensing

Wonderware Historian Integration with Store-and-Forward Capability

One InTouch Machine Edition integrates natively with the Wonderware Historian and Wonderware Online, displaying a common node for each machine across one or multiple sites. This enables remote monitoring of machine health and performance data and simplifies cross-site performance metric tracking and reporting. Regulatory compliance, data storage and reporting from a small device to multi-site could not be easier.

Data is accessible through standard SQL Server tools such as Excel or Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. Store-and-forward capability saves information locally if the connection to the historian is lost and sends it to the historian when it is back online. InTouch Machine Edition can also communicate with a historian over a private WAN connection or satellite link.

Hardware Independence and Open Connectivity

  • Native drivers to more than 240 communication protocols, covering all major PLCs, temperature controllers, motion controllers, bar code/2D/RFID readers and many other devices.
  • Connect to any SQL database (Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Wonderware Historian), or Microsoft Access or Excel, and ERP/MES systems.
  • Embedded Web Server allows you to connect to your machine from anywhere at any time.
  • Leverage store-and-forward capabilities to save information locally (if the connection to the historian is lost), and forward it to the historian when the connection is re-established.
