Codesys HMI - web server
I have some questions about the 'visu' tool of codesys.
My PLC is an PM573 eth; i created an application with visu, to control a machine managed by the CPU.
Wanting to check the machine, directly from the visualization on the PC connected with the PLC (PC where it is located the auto-builder 1.2 used for the development), it's enough activate the web server? Or need anything else ? (activate the HMI ? in case, how the codesys HMI is active?).
Last question: it's possible to test the webserver on simulation mode? And how?
Thanks for the tips.
to activate the web server from pc you have to use a browser that has yet enabled the java feature, such as firefox esr or internet explorer. I'm not sure about Chrome.
To test if your web server interface is ok you have to use the codeys display mode and online with the plc you can test the functionality.
When the interface is activated by web browsers, the operation will be the same.
Hope this help you
