NEW: Web panel for HTML-based visualisation of machine data
Web technologies are advancing in almost all areas of daily life. Whether it be mobile devices, online games or in business environments: a large part of the software used daily is already utilised directly via web browser and no longer installed in the usual way. Web technologies are also replacing classically-installed visualisation tools more and more in machine controls. Because of this, Janz Tec AG has designed a simple display system for use at control points in an industrial environment.
The advantages of the new web panel emWEB, especially when handling several control points, include lower costs for the system hardware, which need not be run at high-performance, and the easier maintenance of the visualisation masks. These can be kept and maintained on one system and do not need to be distributed to individual terminals, which would cause a lot of expenditure. Today, many control systems, sensors and drives already have web-based configuration interfaces, which can be easily integrated into web-based user interfaces in a cost-effecvitve way. There are absolutely no more licences necessary for client applications.
The new web panel emWEB was specially designed to visualize machine data provided on websites. The hardware is based on a Freescale i.MX6 processor, has displays suitable for industry, a 24V power supply and is very simple to integrate into the machine network via ethernet interface. Because of its design as a single board system, a reduced installation depth could be achieved.
The pre-installed, minimalist Linux operating system builds the basis for the HTML5-based web browser, which automatically starts in full-screen kiosk mode after booting the system and also automatically connects with a pre-set web server address. emWEB can be used almost universally with every visualisation based on HTML5. The configuration also takes place via a web browser.
Four programmable buttons on the front, a capacitive touch screen and a CAN interface are available as additional options. Instead of a web browser, the system can also be equipped with a CODESYS V3 runtime environment. Together with the integrated CODESYS target visualisation, the emWEB web panel is thus an inexpensive and very compact control and operating system for smaller machines.
emWEB is available with a 7 inch and a 21 inch display screen starting. Further screen sizes are already being planned. You can find more details on emWeb here: https://www.janztec.com/en/products/embedded-computing/emweb/
