HMI

SPEC Automation remains dedicated to design interfaces that provide ease of use to the end user. The HMI provides simple monitoring of your system to ensure that a successful process is achieved.

Using color and visibility, our team can provide you with custom HMI screens that allow for accurate representation of product flow. Displaying real time values during the process lets operators verify their system is running effectively and efficiently.

Data Acquisition

SPEC Automation also has the capabilities to perform data logging for customers. Data logging allows you to keep a record of any data point in the process including weights, temperatures, and pressures. Data logging can even be saved to a mobile flash-drive and analyzed on any PC with compatible spreadsheet software, such as excel. This allows you to plot and obtain a visual representation of the process history.
