With the cost free software tool „RemoteStage“ can be realized remote visualizations out of the binary of an existing visualization for free. It works like a 2nd panel and is connected to the PLC by Ethernet S7-communication. This allows a very low data transfer, because only process data will be transferred. There can work more instances at one PC, what allows a master display functionality for free.
But not only remote visualization and controlling is possible, this tool uploads all archived data and trend to show it on the remote PC and can save it as csv-file as well. Recipes can by modified at the PC and downloaded to the remote device, what helps for a simple handling.
This program is available as portable version only, it is not to install. That is necessary to integrate the remotestage.exe into a batch process, what e.g. collects all archived date from the PLC and saves it to any network drive you assign in the batch file.
