Though the term high-performance HMI sounds like a very advanced and possibly complex type of HMI display, it’s actually quite the opposite. High-performance HMIs, in contrast to more standard, modern HMI displays, are not very colorful. For example, each device or piece of equipment won’t be represented with different colors, and you won’t see pipes actively filling with blue or green fluid, or flames underneath a tank indicating an active boiler operation. Instead, a high-performance HMI will be primarily gray with just the devices or systems requiring attention highlighted in any kind of attention-getting color. Proponents of high-performance HMIs say the gray-scale screens with minimal color enable better situational awareness for operators by better directing their response to high priority problems.
