Why would I use VNC on my Advanced HMI?
Our Advanced HMIs come with a built-in VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server. VNC is a Remote Frame Buffer protocol used for remote operation and screen sharing. It enables you to instantly monitor and control a remote HMI as though you were standing in front of it.
When enabled, any third party VNC viewer client (available for Apple, Android, Windows, and Linux devices) can log into a Maple Systems HMI to see and control exactly what's shown on the HMI screen. VNC is ideal for situations where the remote device is on the same local network and bandwidth is not limited.
Note: HMI IP address required for VNC access. VNC client applications for many different platforms are available online.
