How to integrate Compact HMI system to 800xA HMI?
Voted best answer
Compact HMI may be integrated to a Main Control room with MSI (Multi-System Integration). With this feature the Main 800xA System (Subscriber) can view and operate the provider systems (compact Systems).
Licenses you may find under the Pricing Database for the MSI option in 800xA.
I doubt that MI is supported on CHMI.
Please contact your regional sales representative for a definitive answer.
I would suggest Remote Desktop (RDP):
- "Free of charge" (a server login may require administrative privileges if Terminal Server option is not purchased). TS is probably "not tested" for CHMI but works fine for "big brother" 800xA.
- Very bandwidth conservative and robust
- Thin clients may be used if hardware meet requirements
