Pro-face America's STW6000 Series Basic Web HMI can, as a web HMI, display HTML5 data from multiple devices, allowing complete visibility over a company’s intranet. Many industrial automation devices support HTML5, which can be displayed on PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
Many industrial devices and even simple instrumentation components now have an embedded web server and a fixed web page that serves up diagnostic data and often allows for configuration of the device via HTML5. Devices like PLCs allow customers to customize HTML5 pages loaded on an embedded web server. According to Pro-face, the trend with SCADA packages is to allow publication of screens in HTML5 format for mobile devices. The STW6000 series allows visibility to all these devices using a web browser platform and requires no programming beyond configuring and entering URLs.
