2/18 Modicon M340 automation platform Ethernet Modbus/TCP network Web Designer configuration software Web Designer configuration software The Web Designer software is supplied on CD-ROM with the BMXNOE0110 Ethernet network module and the BMXNOR0200H RTU module. The software is used for the configuration and administration of the Web server embedded in the modules. It makes it easier to create customized Web human/ machine interfaces (HMIs). It is also used for easy configuration of embedded advanced processing functions for numerous Web server modules and RTU modules: b FactoryCast Web server modules for Modicon M340, Quantum and Premium PLCs b FactoryCast HMI Web server modules for Modicon Premium and Quantum PLCs b ETG 1000/3000 FactoryCast Gateways for remote access b RTU module for Modicon M340 Web Designer software is compatible with the Windows 2000 SP2, Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista Professional 32-bit operating systems. For optimum use, it requires Java Virtual Machine 1.4.2 minimum. Web Designer software offers the following functions: b Setting the Web Designer function parameters : v Definition of access security, passwords v Importing of PLC symbol databases v Definition of access to write-enabled variables b Management of the Web site : v Management of default site Web pages v Management of user site Web pages v Graphic Data Editor for animating Web pages (BMXNOE0110 module only) . This integrated editor can be used for easy customization of graphic objects: bar charts, gauges, LEDs, curves, cursors, operator input fields, alphanumeric display fields, buttons, etc. v Downloading of Web pages between the PC and the module v Debugging of Web pages in online mode or in simulation mode (including animations and Java beans) b Simulation mode : v The application and the Web site (including the Java animations) can be set up in online mode or in simulation mode. v Simulation mode is used to test the operation of the Web application without a module (with no physical connection to a PLC) thereby simplifying debugging. b Creation of user Web pages : v User Web pages are created graphically using an external HTML editor (FrontPage or similar, not supplied). v User Web pages created with the graphic editor are actual animated supervisory control screens and can be used to monitor the process. Based on Web technologies (HTML and Java), they provide real-time access to PLC variables using the FactoryCast library of graphic objects (Java beans) (BMXNOC0401 module only) (1) . b Data Logging (for BMXNOR0200H module only) : v This service is used to archive the application data: events, alarms, process data, device states, process values, etc. v The data are logged in CSV files in ASCII format, which are stored locally on the SD memory card in the BMXNOR0200H module. b Sending alarm notifications or reports via Email or SMS (BMXNOR0200H module only) : v The BMXNOR0200H module can send e-mails or SMS messages automatically in real time in order to send alarm notifications, maintenance calls, production reports or factory status updates, etc to specified users. v E-mails or SMS messages are sent when a predefined application or process is triggered. (1) Web Designer includes a plug-in for FrontPage 2000. This plug-in makes it easier to set up animations for real-time access to the PLC variables in HTML pages created by the user. They are created in the HTML editor by simply inserting customized graphic objects.
