Each VS2 has a built in Human Machine Interface (HMI) capability that allows users (such as line operators) start runs, view run progress (including viewing inspection details), and stopping runs. In VS2 terms, each time a program is started is called a Run. Unlike the other VS2 user interfaces, this feature is meant to be used on devices with touch screen functionality such as the HMI unit sold by Samsara or similar tablets.
Below are installation instructions for the Samsara HMI device:
1) Mount the HMI using the included stencil.
2) Connect the HMI to the power supply and press the power button.
3) Select how you would like to connect your device.
Ensure the HMI is connected to an active network via the ethernet port. Turn on ethernet, then hit the back button.
Turn on Wi-Fi and select your network. Enter the password for the network, select ‘Connect’, then hit the back button.
4) Choose the device you would like to use with your HMI. That device’s local dashboards will now be available under the ‘Dashboards’ tab.
