We are getting a new HMI system that will be running on GE iFIX and iClients. The HMI is designed for a single monitor (1920x1080) and this will be displayed on a system that can support duel monitors. We would like to use the second monitor for other windows based applications but I have been told this is not possible on an iClient system. I have no knowledge of iFix and its HMI programing but this does not seam reasonable. Can anyone provide any input on this?
We mainly would like to use the second monitor to display security and video information for the plant that we already have a windows based application built. I really do not want to have an additional system just , for this considering we already have a primary and secondary iClient workstations setup.
Thanks in advance for any assistance and information.
