HMI Development Software -
Maxtech Designer is proven in many application fields and is an
easy to use integrated development tool featuring
solution-oriented screen objects, high-end vector graphics,
Windows fonts for multi-language applications, recipes, alarms,
data loggers and operation logging. Maxtech Designer also
includes online/offline simulation and other utility programs
such as Data Transfer Helper (DTH); recipes editors and text
editors. MT HMI runtime, a part of Maxtech Designer, guarantees
reliability and performance because of the minimum system
overhead, high communication data rates, sub-second screen
switching, and operation.
