High performance open HMI can help maximize your development efficiency. Advantech's HMI's are cost efficient, robust, integrated, and connected.

Cost Efficient

The perfect HMI solution combines a ready-to-go platform with powerful software to bring customers great cost efficiency and time saving.


Over 30 years' experience in innovation and many extensive testing certificates for industrial environments, gives our customers the best quality and reliability. 


We've greatly shortened engineering time by integrating HMI runtime and designer software by featuring the much heralded iDoor technology to easily communicate with industrial machine equipment and IT management through RS232/422/485, Wi-Fi and 3G. 


Advantech's HMI technology has another role in industrial 4.0, as it supports IoT data transfer between units and the management system by providing over 450 PLC and controller communication drivers.
