Compact HMI800 Smart client Server
Voted best answer
Compact HMI FP4 onwards support Smart Client. Unlike smart client with System 800xA, smart client server in CHMI can be installed on Windows 7 OS as well. There are no additional PC requirements for Smart Client. If required based on your configuration you may have to consider an additional NIC card .
The Compact HMI 5.1 FP4 RevD is compatible with the Smart Client 2.2 Rev B and is running on the same machine as the CHMI server.
The Smart Client server is installed using the option in the CHMI Installer and the needed Smart Client SW is already on the CHMI media.
Supported Operating Systems
Compact HMI 800 supports the following operating systems:
-Windows 7 for clients (Service Pack 1)
-Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 for servers
The US English version is required for Windows 7 even if a translated version of Compact HMI 800 is used.
I would suggest using a 6 core 2.6 GHz, 16 GB RAM and at least 120 GB HD.
