The InTouch HMI (Edge) 2017 course is a 4-day, instructor-led class designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the features and functionality of the InTouch Edge software.

InTouch HMI (Edge) enables end users and machine builders to quickly create intuitive, secure, and highly maintainable HMI applications for intelligent machines and on a variety of low level devices using embedded operating systems for up to 3000 tags.

The course provides lectures and hands-on labs to supply and reinforce the knowledge needed to use InTouch Edge to develop an HMI for your plant floor environment using basic InTouch HMI (Edge) elements. The HMI application will be developed using InTouch HMI (Edge) software features such as Tags, Classes, Indirect Addressing, Animation, Symbols, Scripting, Alarms, Real Time and Historical Trending, Reports, Recipes (many types including XML), and Store-and-Forward Historian (including the Wonderware Historian, PLC Drivers, Remote Troubleshooting, Remote Clients Project Security, and Application Backup).


Completion of the InTouch HMI (Edge) Webinars: InTouch Edge – Introduction, InTouch Edge – Preparation, and InTouch Edge.

Basic PLC experience.

Manufacturing industry experience.

Familiarity with Personal Computers and the Windows operating system.

Students must have read the InTouch Edge datasheet.


Target Audience

Application developers, engineers, system integrators, consultants, and other individuals who need to use InTouch Edge in their manufacturing processes or for machine, panel, and system builders.
