Features in WebIQ
There are a lot of features built into WebIQ. It is no longer necessary to code everything from scratch, to write a lot of code, or to have it only work on Windows. The HTML5 web technology enables you to do everything you can on any other website and also visualize and control PLC data in any modern web browser. There are a lot of resources available online to help you get started and to get help with web development. However, most of the time no code is needed - just click and configure!
Data recorder & Trend functionalities
A built-in SQLite database stores the data recorded by WebIQ's data recorder. Each database can store up to 281 TB of data, so you can record a lot of information. Trend widgets are included for visualizing stored data. You can visualize either current data or historical data with these widgets. Style your widgets code-freeRadial Gauge widgets can be created without writing a single line of code. Besides being included with WebIQ, you can also configure the Radial Gauge widget easily by changing its design settings like font sizes, positions, and colors. You can export your widget and import it into another project if you want to reuse it!
Great for programmers, too!
Responsive design in a breeze
For many companies, responsive design is one of the primary reasons they switch from legacy HMIs to modern web HMIs – the ability to access the HMI on a variety of devices and from anywhere on the planet – including smartphones, tablets, machine displays, and anywhere in the world. Our responsive layout features make it easy to make your web HMI react to different display sizes using modern web technologies such as flex layout and wrapping - all built on top of WebIQ's modern web technology:
As WebIQ is based on open web technologies, it's possible to customize the styling of the widgets both directly inside WebIQ Designer and also by using custom CSS code. WebIQ also supports theming with both normal and inverted styles for all widgets. You can also create multiple themes for the same HMI, such as day and night themes. The following HMI illustrates how to easily change the styling for different theme-like effects.
Instant preview on mobile devices
Whenever you make any changes, they are visible immediately and can be tested directly on any browser, smartphone, or tablet in your local network - no need to publish or compile anything: you just need to open the preview address on your phone to see the current HMI as it appears in WebIQ. You will see the changes immediately if you change something in your HMI in WebIQ Designer - such as adding a widget! This makes testing for mobile devices a breeze! With the widget list and hierarchy open at the same time in WebIQ Designer's Layout Manager, you can see a lot more of your HMI than what is shown here.
