All-in-one HMI's and PLC's are often used in smaller machines, since they are compact and relatively inexpensive. A manufacturer of these type of controllers has integrated our IXagent software, allowing their HMI/PLC to directly connect to the IXplatform without the need of an additional hardware component.
Via the touch screen on the PLC/HMI the user can enter the ID of her business account, to register the controller to the IXplatform. From that moment the controller can be programmed from anywhere in the world.
Thanks to the web-based VNC and Web viewer, users can access the HMI remotely from the IXON web application. This manufacturer has set up a separate sector within the IXplatform in which they can have their own white-labeling and business model.
