Today's industrial automation users have a need for fast, responsive, easy-to-configure Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) that can economically deliver a rich user experience and make sure critical plant production information can be securely accessed by everyone in their organization from anywhere at any time.

Cogent DataHub® WebView™, a feature offered within the Cogent DataHub IT/OT data integration software, is an advanced HMI solution tailored to seamlessly integrate with your live data streams and eliminate any delays typically associated with HMIs that are dependent on databases. As a comprehensive solution that combines real-time data delivery, a robust web server, and an HMI designer into a self-contained package, DataHub WebView provides an excellent alternative for those seeking a cutting-edge HMI for process monitoring without committing to a significant investment in a complex SCADA system.

In this video blog post, we will walk through the basic steps to getting started with DataHub WebView. We will cover the DataHub product installation and making a basic connection to an OPC DA Server for real-time data, as well as the creation of an example WebView page and how to publish the WebView page on a local or remote machine.

To summarize, in this video, I’ve shown you:

  1. DataHub Installation and basic connection to an OPC DA Server for real-time data. (In this example, we made an OPC DA connection to TOP Server.)
  2. Creation of a basic WebView Page.
  3. How to launch a saved WebView page locally and remotely.
