As an industry leader for nearly 70 years in building human machine interface (HMI) components, EAO Corp. has brought its innovation to the next level by creating customized HMI Systems, a new division of the company.
HMI components include products such as push buttons, switches, keypads and keyboards that provide a link between a user and a machine. HMI Systems provide the controls for users to operate a machine, system or instrument. Systems can range from a simple panel with a set of electromechanical controls – such as push buttons – to a multi-layered graphical touchscreen combined with electromechanical controls. “We spent many years offering components only and we have evolved into a mixed technology provider,” President Lance A. Scott says.
