The client server network

Previous chapterNext chapter Show allShow all    Hide allHide all

The control system makes it easy to create a client server network. In the project properties one computer is defined as the server. I.e. only this PC has a direct connection to the PLC. Even more, it also has the full and exclusive administration of the process data (e.g. online data, archive data, alarms, recipes, etc.) and the project data (e.g. pictures, functions, variables, etc.).

Each other computer, which starts the same project, is automatically recognized and defined as a client. On each Runtime start this client establishes a connection to the server, aligns the project data and displays the current process data.
