HMI Development Software - Maxtech Designer
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.
