  1. HMI view/control on smart phone or tablet

    There are several ways to do this depending on what SCADA software and hardware you're using. If you're using a Windows Terminal Server, you could use a native RDP application for your mobile device. If you're using just a Windows workstation, you could use VNC, RDP, LogMeIn, TeamViewer, etc to access the workstation remotely over the network on your mobile device. Several of the SCADA software packages offer web-based views of the HMI with various levels of control between the packages. Computer hardware requirements vary as well. If you don't have an existing SCADA software installation, you could potentially run an HMI server on your mobile device as long as it's compatible with the PLC/controller hardware you're using. What software and hardware are you currently using? Regards, Eric
  2. Can you attach a screenshot and the script and/or properties you're using on the Web Browser ActiveX control? Regards, Eric
  3. Wonderware and IP camera call ups

    1. Install the VLC player ( on the InTouch HMI machine. 2. Add the VLC ActiveX control to your InTouch application. 3. Find the RTSP port number and protocol for the camera. This will be needed for the RTSP URL you'll configure in the VLC ActiveX control on your InTouch window. (e.g. port 8557, using H.264). The RTSP URL for the camera would then be something like rtsp://<ip address>:8557/h264. 4. In InTouch, add the VLC ActiveX control to your window. Then, either configure a message tag and set the value of the tag to the RTSP URL, or set the ActiveX control's BaseURL parameter directly by referencing the control name and parameter name in the InTouch window's On Show script.    5. Assuming the door trigger is wired up to a PLC or some device InTouch can communicate with, create a condition script that monitors the door trigger tag and opens the window containing the VLC ActiveX control you just configured. In my screenshots, my VLC window's name is "_junk". I don't have an RTSP camera feed to test this out with, but I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work. I'd love to hear how it works out. Eric
