Tending to automated machine functions and robotics applications has been made handier by IDEC Corp.

The supplier of automation controls based in Sunnyvale, Calif. has come up with a compact, lightweight handheld HMI with a 4.3-in. touchscreen, function keys and switches that deliver fatigue-free use.

The HMI connects to automation platforms via a standard 19-pin connector. The HG1P is a quick starter at less than three seconds and it’s durable enough to withstand a 1.5-metre drop with a flush-mount selector switch that resists breaking.

HG1P goes anywhere a traditional HMI is used for robot teaching, machine tending and wherever operators need to move among various locations.
