iX Integrator

iX Integrator is a value-added enhancement to Beijer Electronics’ existing iX Developer software and enables you to integrate multiple HMIs into a single, shared HMI solution and provide HMI project extensions for your business partners. iX Integrator provides streamlined collaboration and synergy for joint HMI solutions with maintained security and functionality.

 


Traditional HMI solution

- Two panels with individual projects

HMI solution using iX Integrator

- One panel with joint project


Reduces footprint and lower costs


With iX Integrator, the primary OEM and its partners can create joint HMI solutions utilizing common software and hardware. It allows the OEM to give its partners and end users the ability to add custom HMI programming and capabilities without impacting the core function of the OEM’s operator panel.

iX Integrator solutions reduce footprint and lower costs by combining resources into a single, shared HMI and creates synergistic solutions by centralizing the operator interface. At the same time iX Integrator solutions makes the machine operator’s tasks safer and easier to access and manage.


Typical use cases


Example 1: A machine supplier manufactures, programs and sells a component or machine normally used together with peripheral equipment. A system integrator completes the system and delivers to the end customer.

Example 2: A machine is designed and built in one country for global market distribution. A distributor in another country adds custom screens and operator options that better address the local requirements for the machine.


Workflow

iX Integrator is available in two versions:
iX Developer – Integrator Master is for the primary OEM (master)
iX Developer – Integrator Client is for the partners of the primary OEM (client)
