Monitor and Control up to 50 HMIs from One Device!
is a client application that enables users to view and control
select HMIs quickly and easily. cMT Viewer runs the HMI project on
the client device. Only application data is exchanged between the
hardware, acting as a server, and the client device – your smart
phone or tablet.
cMT Viewer will run on the following client platforms: Windows
- Android Smartphones and Tablets
- Apple iPhone/iPad
This means that a single unit can be accessed by up to three client
devices, running cMT Viewer from any of these platforms, at a time.
Conversely, the same client device can be used to connect to any
number of our headless HMIs. The cMT Viewer application on the
client device will maintain a history of all headless HMIs
previously connected to. To switch to a new headless HMI , simply
select the project from the history list, and the project for that
headless HMI will start to run.
Monitor Mode is a feature exclusive to the Windows version of the
cMT Viewer application. It allows real-time data to be displayed
from up to 50 headless HMIs simultaneously. Each headless HMI is
displayed as a tile in a grid as seen below. This special overview
screen is configured on window 3 in the EBPro project. As the
headless HMI responds to data read from the PLC, the tile view will
update on the cMT Viewer client. A user can simply click any of the
tiles to immediately jump to the full project for that headless HMI.
In addition to the data displayed on window 3 of the project, the
alarm feature can be used to alert an operator using Monitor Mode to
an alarm on a particular HMI. When an alarm occurs, a red badge
appears on the affected HMI tile. The operator can then quickly
click on the tile and view the entire HMI application to get more
information about the alarm.
The Monitor Mode feature is well suited to creating supervisory
stations while using a Desktop PC or try a Maple Systems Industrial
Panel or Box PC.
cMT Viewer and EasyAccess 2.0
EasyAccess 2.0 can be used with our IIot edge-devices . EasyAccess
2.0 combines the hardware, a cloud-based VPN server, and the cMT
Viewer application to provide worldwide secure access to our IIoT
edge-devices with an Internet connection. Once EasyAccess 2.0 is
enabled on the device, it will reach out and establish a connection
to the cloud-based VPN server. Users can then log in using the EA2.0
Client app from anywhere in the world to create a secure VPN
connection between their device and the HMI. Using cMT Viewer over
this connection allows the remote user to operate the device as if
they were standing directly in front of the machine.
