Product Name(s): Viewport
Product Description: The VIEWPORT is a network device that allows a user to externally access the Human Machine Interface (HMI) of a GENESIS Series or Maxim Controller located on the network. Connected to the “GENII Net Comms”, the VIEWPORT can be used to search for controllers present on the network. A user may then use the VIEWPORT to log onto any one of the available controllers. The VIEWPORT is designed for surface mounting and allows easy access to networked controllers that are located in remote or inaccessible areas.
Product Application(s): Human Machine Interface for Innotech Genesis and Maximum control systems.
