The illuminated mandatory emergency stop button and a three-stage enabling switch are included with the standard equipment of the HMI device and are located directly on the M2Smart® HMI5. One distinctive feature of the M2Smart® HMI5 is its modular architecture: The basic device can be upgraded with additional functions, each perfectly coordinated with the others. This is made possible by the Android™ Industrial+ operating system and the patented slide mechanism on the device. Developed internally by ACD Elektronik in Germany, the operating system makes it possible to use numerous apps and offers users the advantages of intuitive operation. The slide mechanism provides a mechanical interface through which the HMI device can be flexibly expanded with additional system components and modules.
Customer-specific applications can also be developed by ACD Elektronik. In this way, the device can meet the different requirements of users. In response to customer wishes, ACD offers additional, customized device extensions related to function and operation. The 4.8-inch TFT color display ensures optimum visualization combined with convenient handling similar to a smartphone. Impressive features of the device include its light weight, intuitive handling and compact, ergonomic design.
