HMI Service Enables Users to Remotely Access Machines
Pro-Face America’s Pro-Face Connect is a ready-to-use embedded HMI service that enables customers to access machines remotely and securely.
Pro-Face America’s Pro-Face Connect is a ready-to-use embedded human-machine interface (HMI) service that enables customers to access machines remotely and securely.
Most of the company’s current HMIs and iPCs are compatible with the service. Users can access their machines remotely to program, troubleshoot and maintain performance. Its configuration is based on HMI panels and software, and it does not require extra hardware or accessories. A manager license is available, which enables customers to manage other devices connected to the HMI, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs). The service is activated through an online upgrade.
The company follows a secure development lifecycle process, which includes penetration tests, threat model analysis and requirements from the cybersecurity committee of Schneider Electric, Pro-Face’s parent company. This process helps ensure that the service complies with industry standards for security, making it suitable for managing multiple machines at multiple locations.

This concept introduces the three basic modes of operation, presents examples of when they are used, explores more about the mode switch, and categorizes each position of the mode switch into one of the three basic modes.
Effectively commanding motion on most CNC machines requires more than describing how the CNC machine determines the end point position for each motion.
For the most part, CNC controls will follow the instructions given in a program to the letter. With the exception of basic syntax (program formatting) mistakes, the CNC control will rarely be able to tell if a mistake has been made.
