    Device Communications

    GE FanucGE Fanuc

    CIMPLICITY HMI is based on a client server architecture consisting

    of Servers and Viewers. Servers are responsible for the collection and

    distribution of data. Viewers connect into Servers and have full access

    to the collected data for viewing and control actions.

    Servers and Viewers can be easily networked together to seamlessly

    share data without the need to replicate your point database from nodeto node. For example, points are configured once and only once on a

    server. Screens can be developed and stored in a single location on the

    network and accessed by any other CIMPLICITY HMI display on the

    network.

    Servers can be licensed to collect data from, for example, 75, 150, 300,

    700, or an unlimited number of device points. Exempted from the

    point count are virtual points, which reside only in the computer and

    points collected by another server. This I/O count architecture satisfies

    customers with small single node systems, and leverages CIMPLICITY

    HMIs strong client / server architecture for multi-node systems.

    CIMPLICITY HMI provides the flexibility to build a larger system

    through multiple smaller nodes without forcing you to purchase large

    and expensive server hardware to service multiple users.

    System RecommendationsYour system must meet the following minimum requirements in order

    to successfully install and run CIMPLICITY HMI software.

    You should also check theImportant Product Informationdocumentshipped with your release for any last-minute changes to these

    recommendations.

    Note:CIMPLICITY HMI Server and Viewer software may be run onMicrosoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft Windows

    NT Workstation, or Microsoft Windows NT Server software. However,

    Microsoft Windows NT Workstation imposes a limit of 10 network

    connections. Due to this limitation, the number of remote client/server and

    device communication connections may be limited. If you require

    connections to multiple devices and/or multiple remote nodes, you should

    purchase Microsoft Windows Server for these applications.

    Using Windows NT on Intel ProcessorsYou will need a Pentium

    class PC (we recommend 90 MHz or better),

    a VGA monitor (Graphics Accelerator recommended), and access to a

    CD-ROM drive. Depending on the system type, you will also need the

    following:

    Workstation

    Version 4.0

    40 MB 200 MB

    If you plan to support third party drivers such as Data Highway Plus

    and MODBUS Plus, you will need an ISA bus.

    If you plan to network to other PCs or use the Series 90 TCP/IP driver,

    you will also need an Ethernet adapter.

    Running the Demonstration Project

    About CIMPLICITY HMI DemosCIMPLICITY HMI includes a demonstration project that showcases the

    features of CIMPLICITY HMI software. This project is automatically

    loaded if you select it during installation.

    You can use the demonstration project in two important capacities:

    1. Run a demonstration overview about CIMPLICITY HMI and itsapplications.

    2. Use the demonstration project to open the CIMPLICITY HMIWorkbench, which is at the center of a projects configuration. The

    demonstration project provides you with a useful reference when

    you are in the Workbench and learning about CIMPLICITY HMIs

    many features.

    This chapter describes how to use the CIMPLICITY HMI demonstration

    project in the two capacities listed above.

    Demonstration of CIMPLICITY HMI

    Take some time to look through the CIMPLICITY HMI demonstration. Thedemonstration describes CIMPLICITY HMIs numerous features. It also

    provides you with several application examples.

    The demonstration, itself, was constructed in CimEdit, the softwares

    interface editor. You will be viewing it in CimView, the softwares runtime

    interface. Therefore, as you look through the demonstration, you will not

    only see descriptions and examples of CIMPLICITY HMIs many

    configuration possibilities. You will be experiencing them as well.

    Guidelines for using Adobe Acrobat reader, which is usedby the CIMPLICITY HMI Book Reader

    There are no jumps from the Contents or Index pages of theCIMPLICITY documentation. If you find an entry in the

    Contents or Index, you can use the Findtool to find the wordin the body of the document, or to find the page number.

    If you are accessing online documentation over a networkshare, the DOCdirectory must be on a mapped drive (such asX:\doc). The index will not work with a UNC path name(such as\\computer\share\doc).

    If you see books listed multiple times in your search results, itmeans you have the index file loaded multiple times. To

    remove duplicate index entries:

    1. Select Tools on the menu bar.2. Select Search.

    3. Select Indexes.

    4. Remove any duplicate index entries.
