Applications with the new webHMI

The webHMI is a complete browser-based HMI..

The web server integrated in the vicosys® and pictor® makes it possible to deliver live images and process data via the web interface. This created a reliable and platform-independent interface for vision systems from Vision & Control.
In addition, there is the Web Monitor, which continuously sends images of the current display and the Buffer Monitor, which communicates individual images at certain points in the process. The Webmonitor and the Buffer Monitor are included in the delivery state.
The webHMI needs to be customized to the specific task via vcwin. It is included with the current vcwin installation.
