Bedienoberfläche für VLT

Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

The panel is used to control and display the motor performance and process values as well as to program actions and sequences. The interface was developed in a „User Centered Design“ development process with heavy user input to ensure an interface that would meet the requirements of a number of different user groups. The interdisciplinary design team consisted of anthropologists, interaction designers, industrial designers, engineers and users from around the world. The result is improved operation through a well-arranged, easy to use interface. The interface communicates the embedded product complexity in a straightforward, intuitive manner. Our inspiration was taken from leisure products, with the goal of making users feel comfortable and in charge of the product, even in a complex industrial setting. This Local Control Panel will serve as the interactive heart of a wide range of future products from Danfoss Drives.
