About InTouch (Machine Edition)


Easy to use integrated development environment with comprehensive features and runtime editions for IoT Edge solutions (IoTView), Compact HMIs (CEView), Full Featured HMIs (EmbeddedView), and SCADA systems (Full Runtime).



Increase competitiveness and minimise costs through Portability, Mobility, and Interoperability in a cost-efficient solution.



InTouch (Machine Edition) Enhances the Intelligence of Embedded Devices

OEMs, machine builders, discrete manufacturers, and end users can convert autonomous standalone machines by integrating and exposing machine data seamlessly to supervisory HMI and historical archive systems. This provides a broader understanding of the entire operation. No longer isolated, these scattered devices become integral to the overall automation system, even across multiple locations.


InTouch (Machine Edition) and System Platform Integration Enables IIoT Solutions

As the Internet of Things gains more traction, the number of embedded devices used for M2M data exchange will increase. Demand for machine functionality will also rise sharply, including demand for inter-device interoperability, the ability to exchange data with cloud-based systems, and the need for user-friendly remote configuration and maintenance.

Unlock and harness the machine data from your embedded devices by installing InTouch Machine Edition directly on your devices and expose it via your existing System Platform or archive it in a cloud-based historian using Online InSight. Enjoy limitless scalability.

InTouch (Machine Edition) Features

Unique software capabilities make it easy and cost effective for you to use InTouch Machine Edition to build smarter end-to-end automation systems.

Platform Agnostic HMI/SCADA Software

Develop your InTouch Machine Edition application, and use built-in capabilities to deploy your application anywhere.

Deploy on embedded and small-footprint IoT devices, with core runtime editions that run on devices using Windows Embedded, Linux, and VxWorks, or deploy to devices, laptops, or PCs using any currently supported version of Microsoft Windows.

InTouch Machine Edition Industry Solutions Make Development as Easy as a Few Clicks

If you are developing applications for Andon solutions, Business Intelligence, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), or PackML, InTouch Machine Edition templates drastically reduce development time. Use it to customise, configure, and get your machines running quickly.

Over 250 Native Communication Protocols

InTouch HMI Machine Edition offers over 250 native drivers that allow seamless communication between your HMI/SCADA and every major manufacturer of PLC and controller. Use widely accepted standards like SNMP and MQTT, or use our driver toolkit API to develop your own. Combine the native drivers with support for OPC UA and OPC .NET and OPC DA and HDA for unparalleled communication options.

Automatically convert FactoryTalk™ ME/SE, PanelMate™ and PanelBuilder™ projects

Conversion tools slash development times for users looking to migrate from existing 3rd party HMIs to InTouch Machine Edition. It’s possible to save up to 90 percent development time during the conversion process while protecting prior engineering investments.

HTML5 Web Client Makes Publishing to the Web Simple

The HTML5 web client (Studio Mobile Access) makes it easy to deploy your application with read/write access to any device with a browser that supports HTML5, including smartphones and tablets.

The web client supports all native objects, and can be configured for more secure web deployments of your HMI/SCADA applications.

  • Putting Machine Data to Work Through Integration With Wonderware System Platform

    InTouch Machine Edition enables a line of sight from System Platform SCADA applications down to embedded machine-based small systems. Configure remote machines directly from System Platform.


    Monitor machine status and performance against OMAC PackML data and OEE standards. Changes implemented in the InTouch Machine Edition applications update automatically to System Platform SCADA applications.

    • Share data from embedded devices across multiple plants to leverage your System Platform investment.
    • Native integration with System Platform, Historian, and Insight facilitates easy, cross-site reporting and performance metrics.
    • Native System Platform integration with InTouch Machine Edition enables collection, historisation of tag values, and alarms status without impacting existing System Platform licensing.
    • Tiered architecture facilitates IIoT-based applications that will cause a surge in the volume of interconnected devices.
    • Increase engineering productivity by centrally deploying InTouch Machine Edition projects to connected remote nodes from System Platform.

  • Historian Integration with Store-and-Forward Capability

    One InTouch Machine Edition integrates natively with the Historian and Online, displaying a common node for each machine across one or multiple sites. This enables remote monitoring of machine health and performance data and simplifies cross-site performance metric tracking and reporting.  Regulatory compliance, data storage and reporting from a small device to multi-site could not be easier.


    Data is accessible through standard SQL Server tools such as Excel or Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. Store-and-forward capability saves information locally if the connection to the historian is lost and sends it to the historian when it is back online. InTouch Machine Edition can also communicate with a historian over a private WAN connection or satellite link.

  • The Right Touch

    The InTouch Machine Edition multi-touch interface allows development for any touch-screen enabled device. Use familiar touch gestures, like pinch for zooming and panning, or swiping to change screens or acknowledge alarms.


  • Hardware Independence and Open Connectivity

    • Native drivers to more than 240 communication protocols, covering all major PLCs, temperature controllers, motion controllers, bar code/2D/RFID readers and many other devices.
    • Connect to any SQL database (Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Wonderware Historian), or Microsoft Access or Excel, and ERP/MES systems.
    • Embedded Web Server allows you to connect to your machine from anywhere at any time.
    • Leverage store-and-forward capabilities to save information locally (if the connection to the historian is lost), and forward it to the historian when the connection is re-established.
