XS-Technology

The XS-Technology of tci combines ARM-based touch panels with an integrated micro browser for web visualization with popular PLC systems. This enables high-performance display of data visualization in a resource-saving and long-term stable environment. A continuous working without limitation is possible. The micro browser doesn't know irregular disconnects, which require a system reboot with shutdown.

  • high performance and stability level, without Java Virtual Machine
  • for CoDeSys, Wago, Beckhoff, Simatic and many others
  • no operating system - lightning fast start
web panels with cloud service
CoDesys
Support the latest version of CoDeSys
OPC
Can be used as Client for OPC server
VNC
The VNC cleint display the screens of any other PC direcly on teh spot.

XS-Technology: Vector Graphics are no Obstacle

The cost-effective XS-Technology allows, in addition to many other features, the use of scalable vector graphics such as Tiny SVG. That makes you almost independent of the display size. The runtime system supports:

  • transparency
  • alpha blend (adjustable semi-transparency)
  • rotation/translation 
  • robust and performant, fast system start
  • unbeatable price
  • existing connection to CoDeSys, Wago, Beckhoff, Simatic and many other PLCs
  • existing mechanisms to connection of any web server

 

The SpiderControl Web-Editor (PLC-Edition) will be offered for many controllers, particular as OEM version of the PLC producers. With this tool you can program very efficient and powerful visualisations, which will run on many plattforms.

  • Phoenix
  • Panasonic

  • Baumüller
  • Schleicher
  • Siemens S7-1200/1500*
  • Siemens S7 über CP243/343/443
  • Siemens LOGO 8
  • Beckhoff
  • Wago
  • Beck IPC
  • S0 Controller (Raspberry Pi)

* The Web visualization is created with the HMI Web Editor and saved in the format suitable for the TIA Portal. Finally, the visual data is compiled in the TIA Portal and uploaded to the web server. 

CoDeSys based PLC's with integrated Web visualization will be offered by different manufacturers. An example for this is the Wago 750-841. In order to be able to represent the data of Web visualization, usually a Java applet must be installed in the Client browser. Applet is provided of CoDeSys, calls for a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) on the Client computer ahead. 

A resources-protective and alternative function-compatible to the Java applet offers the MicroBrowser. The MicroBrowser works directly with the visualization objects produced by CoDeSys. An additional configuration tool is not necessary. To start-up only the IP address and the starting side must be entered. Additional to this zipped, CoDeSys web visualization are usable as well.

OLE for Process Control (OPC) was the original name for this standardized software interfaces that was able to exchange data between applications from different manufacturers in automation technology.

OPC is used as a universal interface for bus systems and protocols. With the Microbrowser, various protocols can be displayed and served via this interface. This allows information from different manufacturers to be addressed simultaneously.

Advatages in Combination with tci Systems:

  • no further investments for additional software
  • performante complete solution for continous use
  • low-priced and energy-efficient hardware neither costs nor training by additional tools

The HMI is designed with the comfortable and efficient SpiderControl PLC edition editor and can be transferred directly to the touch panel. The MicroBrowser is able to show the operator side locally and take the referred variables via LAN directly from the process image of the control.
Additionally the Web server can be used on the panel even by further external Clients, in order to visualize the HMI's deposited there. In addition each Java able standard browser in addition, a XS Web Client can be used.

There are various mechanisms for the connection to any type of server. Necessary engineering can be carried out by you or by us. The application note as download file offers more details concerning this topic.


Examples:

  • BMS-System from Siemens, display of energy values
  • room occupancy software for digital door labels,
    effort for installing required about 2 man/days
  • Single-board computer Raspberry Pi (S0-Controller) is used for the collection of operating and energy data and is operated via web panel

A Virtual Network Computing (VNC) is a graphical desktop sharing system that uses the RFB protocol (remote framebuffer) to remotely control another computer. It transmits the keyboard and mouse events from one computer to another, relaying the graphical screen updates back in the other direction, over a network.

VNC is platform-independent – a VNC viewer on one operating system may connect to a VNC server on the same or any other operating system. There are clients and servers for many GUI-based operating systems and for Java. Multiple clients may connect to a VNC server at the same time. Popular uses for this technology include remote technical support and accessing files on one's work computer from one's home computer, or vice versa.

The webpanels are parameterizable for IoT suitable buildings with minimum effort. Using the reliable cloud services, all required data is available for retrieval in the internet. You don’t need any additional hardware.

Touchpanel IP65

If you want to use KNX panels in harsh environments for example near heating systems, in utility rooms or near swimming pools, they need to meet some other requirements than those KNX panels, which are placed in a smart home or a conference room. In this case protection class IP65 is indispensable.
