Rockwell Unveils FactoryTalk Optix HMI Portfolio

New offering combines cloud-based software and hardware that empowers choice, innovation and agility.


Rockwell Automation, Inc. (Milwaukee, WI) has announced the launch of the FactoryTalk Optix portfolio to enable industrial organizations to build versatile human machine interface (HMI) solutions that meet diverse customer requirements and adapt to evolving needs and technologies.

Industrial organizations can now benefit from components designed for the development and programming of intuitive, easy-to-use industrial applications. The FactoryTalk Optix portfolio provides an open architecture along with options for design, deployment, connectivity and extensibility that empower users to create innovative applications.

The FactoryTalk Optix portfolio includes Rockwell Automation’s HMI platform and remote access software, as well as Embedded Edge Compute Modules and a wide range of deployment options. FactoryTalk Optix software provides unlimited flexibility and efficiencies with object-oriented design, wizard-based workflows and pre-built libraries.  

The FactoryTalk Optix portfolio allows users to choose their own technology mix. For the first time, Rockwell Automation customers can use visualization software to design HMI applications that can natively work with both Rockwell Automation and third-party controllers and run it on their choice of hardware. Users can connect to a variety of third-party software, devices or systems using software designed for interoperability and full OPC UA support. Users also only pay for the features they need, reducing unnecessary spend on unused features.

The FactoryTalk Optix portfolio includes five core solutions:

  • FactoryTalk Optix Software
  • OptixPanel
  • FactoryTalk Remote Access Solutions
  • ASEM 6300 Industrial PC
  • Embedded Edge Compute Module

FactoryTalk Optix software V1.2 is now available with over 50 new capabilities, and it is available in English, Italian, French, Spanish and Chinese.
