Operator Panels

The Operator Panels Market Research Report delivers current market analysis plus a five-year market and technology forecast. The report is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries. 

IT/OT Convergence Shapes the Future Market Dynamics for Operator Panels

ARC Advisory Group’s market size and forecast report for the Operator Panels market reveals that the convergence of operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) and digital transformation within industries drive the market. The continued need to improve efficiency, reduce energy consumption, and increase operational visibility will help drive market growth. IT/OT convergence will drive the need for the integration of several disparate components on a single device, which will have a significant impact on the need for data visualization and control functions on plant floors.

Operator Panels Strategic Issues

Operator Panels Market TrendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Operator Panels market research report provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Get HMI Software that Supports HTML5

One of the biggest developments in HMI is HTML5. Operating system-independent HTML5 works on nearly every web-enabled device. Many toolkits are available, so little or no HTML programming knowledge is required. Through HTML5 there is hardly any limit with regard to graphics and user friendliness.

Use Open Standards

Standardization is a key to success. While standardization from the sensor/actor layer to the HMI layer is quite advanced, the link to MES and higher systems is a cost driver. However, standardizing on hardware alone is less important than standardizing on networks and the semantics of operations. ARC recommends looking at open communications first and then standardizing on connectivity.

Real Multi-touch Applications

Multi-touch is more than just some simple gestures like click/tap, double click, pinch, or swipe. Ask what gestures are supported. Give operators the possibility to easily use industrial panels the way they use their smartphones and tablets.

Augmented Reality    

Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that creates a computer-generated image of the real world via electronic devices such as a smartphone or tablet. The user can now enjoy a range of benefits as elements of the virtual world creates an enhanced version of reality.

The incorporation of AR technology with operator panels will combine both contextual and local dynamic information and present it to the user in a way that they can experience real-life environment(s) via virtual objects. This enables the availability of real-time information at the operators' fingertips, whenever necessary. Due to access to real-time data, diagrams, instructions, and user manuals, the speed of operation enhances, and the maintenance of assets becomes more effective. AR technology will abolish the need for searching for technical data in assorted software, databases, activity logs, or even filing cabinets.

Detection of issues and the corresponding diagnosis becomes quicker and easier as color variation displays clearly demarcate the operating status of all the plant assets. The new technology will also help in reducing human errors that occur during the maintenance of systems as it enables a more effective diagnosis of any issue and provides a step-by-step guide to complete the required maintenance activity in real-time. Thus, the likelihood of mistakes is reduced drastically.
