The close cooperation between KEBA and INOSOFT has resulted in the VisiWin for KeTop, a powerful, robust but also flexible visualization solution. The open, freely parameterizable, and programmable system is industry-independent and offers numerous design and adaptation options for the user. For the KeTop series, it is an almost tailor-made solution, whether for operating machines or for monitoring.
Hardware and software are perfectly coordinated. In addition, the visualization solution scores with maximum robustness and high quality.
The combination of high reliability through the handheld pendants and open architecture through modular visualization offers you design freedom and safe performance.
Flexible and adaptable
KEBA and INOSOFT have set themselves the task of developing a highly reliable visualization solution that is nevertheless very easy to integrate. Therefore, VisiWin for KeTop is an open system that seamlessly integrates the powerful and widely used Microsoft developer tools Visual Studio and Blend to ensure maximum flexibility.
In addition, the user interface "Modern UI", based on WPF, provides a class library that offers all possibilities for designing modern, graphically appealing and intuitive user interfaces (high-end user interfaces). This ensures that the visualization software can also be used on other KEBA handheld terminals. Furthermore, the HMIs can also be integrated into larger architectures, for example as VisiWin clients.
The capabilities and functionality of the visualization solution were tailored exactly to the KeTop in order to ensure highest work efficiency. The hardware peripherals are integrated into the tool and thanks to precise development, specially designed, optimized features are available. This ensures that the software is perfectly matched to the hardware capabilities and that the full potential of both technologies can be exploited.
The availability of VisiWin as a native solution and the open concept also guarantee that the additional hardware components used in the KeTop series can be used optimally and evaluated efficiently by the software. The combined know-how of KEBA and INOSOFT enabled the development of a new, holistically coordinated and powerful visualization concept.
Functionality and safety
VisiWin for KeTop" provides you as a user with a selection of individually definable, modular system functions, from which you can freely choose during setup. They can be flexibly adapted to requirements and conditions. From communication to machines, language switching and recipe management to logging, user and alarm management, there are no limits to individualisation.
For example, user administration allows the connection of readers for logins, access rights can be individually defined and there is the possibility for automatic logging out after a defined period of time. In order to avoid misunderstandings and confusion in the event of an alarm, it is feasible to create user-defined alarm types, select from any alarm classes and alarm groups and determine the acknowledgement types.
The visualization solution offers you as a user numerous options for customizing the user interface and thus provides a efficient basis for the individual configuration of machines. All modules and application frames can be pre-defined and combined as required and the components can be reused for individual machine models. The HMI application and keyboard can be individually designed. In addition, fonts, units, symbols, date and time can be changed to make operation as convenient as possible.
The user interface is designed so that own controls can be created and adapted. It is possible to display and configure time controlled animations. A gesture control for an intuitive mode of operation was also developed. The combination of openness and configurable functionality makes this visualization concept an extremely adaptable and customer-friendly application. Whether self-written functions, in-house visualization or own libraries - there are no limits to the design of the software.
