New ESA Kreo HMI

Kreo HMI is the new responsive and independent platform for the development of edge-node and web-HMI applications according to the principles of Industry 4.0. From simplified navigation to networking, here are the main advantages and features of the new ESA solution.

Why Kreo HMI

Over the years, HMIs have been at the center of an enormous evolution in manufacturing to meet the increasingly stringent and specific requirements of modern production. From optimized programming and development times, to user experience to make the interface more appealing and in line with both the needs and the identity of the company.

ESA has created a flexible platform, with edge-client architecture and completely web-oriented, capable of perfectly adapting to production lines with multiple workstations and remote connections on mobile devices. Furthermore, the data exchange according to the OPC-UA standard guarantees full compatibility with external applications (both edge and Cloud) and allows to easily create applications that meet the Industry 4.0 paradigm.
