Top 4 HMI Programs Data


Thread Starter

I need to learn the top 4 HMI programs ranked by market share. The only sources I have found so far charge for the information. The websites for rockwell, iFix, Wonderware are no help either. Please help me put food on the table ;^)

I don't know how you could learn any of these programs without actually having a copy to use.  Do any of the vendors supply an eval copy?  If so, get a hold of one and start reading the manuals.  Then you could get a cheap PLC with Modbus or similar and set up a small system to learn with.  That would be the best way to learn the basics.  Then start looking for projects, that's when the real learning starts.

OK My bad. I just need a list of the top 4 HMIs by market share and their share.

I actually know how to program in InTouch, RSView, iFix and Iconics. I just do not know if they are the top sellers or not.
The only way to know that is to get a market research report from a company like VDC, which is very expensive. Or you could try contacting individual companies to get the data.

Also, I am not sure that Wonderware, etc are considered HMIs. They are SCADA systems. There is a significant difference.
