Schneider Electric upgrades Vijeo HMI software
Vijeo Designer V4.5 software features a Web Gate remote access function, offering users the flexibility to manage their HMI applications in complete security via a simple Internet navigator using Ethernet architecture, said Donna Smalls, HMI/SCADA product manager, Schneider Electric North America. Users easily can exchange up to 300 variables between eight Magelis XBT-GT touch screens and iPC terminals in complete security using an Ethernet connection. The software now also can be used with the protocols Modbus Plus TCP/IP and Uni-Telway, providing even more communication options.
Along with its flexibility and open architecture, the new Telemecanique Vijeo Designer V4.5 software provides multimedia functions, allowing users to view real-time or recorded video. It can encode or decode sequences with recording on demand in Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) format on a Magelis XBT-GT touch screen, or in Audio Video Interleave (AVI) format on an iPC. The software also allows simultaneous viewing of recorded and real-time sequences, and optimizes the display for local or remote control of installations whether using a Magelis XBT-GT or iPC terminal.
Schneider Electric Services offers a migration path from previous Magelis products to the XBT-GT touch screen or iPC terminals through its Switch2Vijeo Designer conversion service.
