Does someone know a thin client software for DigiVis?
Voted best answer
For Thin Client in DigiVis I have used DigiClient software, a 3rd party s/w from APEKS in Singapore. Refer to image attached. APEKS provides unlimited support when you purchase a license.
Both DigiVis & DigiClient s/w is installed on a Windows Server PC with Windows terminal services licenses. Several users are created on this Server PC. DigiVis is launched on Windows Server PC.
Thereafter from remote PCs (non-ABB workstations) IE is launched. The IP address of the DigiClient Server is entered in the URL bar and a connection is created to the DigiClient Server. A Username/Password authentication is required. Concurrent connections can be made to the Server. I have successfully tested 12 concurrent user connecions.
Remote desktop can be used instead of IE.
In South Africa we have 4 systems running DigiClient and all of them have beeen successfully implemented. Take note a DigiClient connection takes up a communication slot connection to a Freelance controller. It is advisable for larger systems to use the OPC-S route in Freelance.
DigiClient is popularly used to merge several Freelance projects & provide the view of DigiVis to persons in an office environment who use IE and do not require a full DigiVis client.
