It is supported by the visualization solution WebIQ, which is included in ctrlX CORE and entirely based on web technologies. With its integrated WYSIWYG editor and more than 50 responsive HMI widgets, WebIQ offers a multitude of design options for your HMI.
UID is a system partner for ctrlX AUTOMATION. We support you in implementing efficient, cutting-edge HMI solutions with ctrlX AUTOMATION and WebIQ. If required, we accompany the entire ideation, design and development process, analyzing the current situation, drafting and designing the HMI and delivering turn-key solutions. Alternatively, we provide individual components such as the HMI implementation using WebIQ or the migration of the existing legacy system into the ctrlX world – whatever meets your project’s requirements.
Benchmark consumer world
Consumer interfaces are the benchmark for industrial HMIs. Because users transfer their experiences with intuitive and appealing UIs from consumer products to their professional life. We design and develop a market-leading, state-of-the-art HMI for ctrlX AUTOMATION that helps you set new benchmarks.
Right from the start of the development process, the user is at the center of our attention. User-centered solutions foster efficient and straight-forward operation, avoiding unnecessary mistakes while reducing familiarization periods and support costs. So that you can set yourself apart from your competitors with a reliable and productive operation.
Our 100 experts for UX design and software draft, design and develop web HMIs that cater for the increasing expectations of clients when it comes to functional reliability and aesthetics. Our HMI designs showcase the quality of your band, creating signature, brand-specific aesthetics.
When implementing HMIs, we make best use of the opportunities provided by ctrlX AUTOMATION and the WebIQ visualization solution by Smart HMI. As needed, we complement them with customized HMI controls, themes and widgets that are exactly tailored to your requirements.
Migration to the web world
We pave the way into the web world by elegantly and efficiently migrating your existing system based on .NET, Qt and others to an HTML5 app while modernizing and optimizing it at the same time. Whenever the right strategy is applied, every functionality and design can be ported from .NET, Qt and others to HTML5.
