HMI is the acronym for Human Machine Interface, and can be designed as just that; an interface between the user and the machine. An HMI is considered an interface; a very broad term that can include MP3 players, industrial computers, household appliances, and office equipment. However, an HMI is much more specific to manufacturing and process control systems. An HMI provides a visual representation of a control system and provides real time data acquisition.
