The InduSoft Web Thin Client is a powerful tool for getting access to SCADA and HMI applications designed in InduSoft Web Studio remotely. The web thin client is especially valuable to plant managers who wish to view a process while in an office or using a smartphone or PDA. OEMs may also benefit from providing a web thin client for use in viewing the HMIs used in equipment.
What Devices Run the Web Thin Client?
The SCADA web thin client will run on a variety of devices. Any windows desktop powered with Internet Explorer (including IE9) will be able to access the web thin client. In addition, embedded operating systems such as Embedded XP will display the thin client. Windows CE and Windows Mobile operating systems can also make use of this great feature.
The web thin client provides operators and plant managers with a full graphical representation of screens, which correspond exactly to those available on the host machine. In addition, because the web thin client requires far less computing power to use, cost can be saved in hardware. Another added benefit is improved downtime. If the hardware supporting the web thin client goes down, there is nothing to reinstall, so it is easy to swap one panel for a new one and bring a machine back online instantly.
