Can the Magelis HMI connect to a file sharing server?

Published date: 05 February 2020

Issue:
Looking for a way to share a recipe file with another HMI on the same network. Would the Magelis HMI be able to connect to a file sharing server on the same network?

Product Line:
Magelis HMI, XBTGT, XBTGK, HMIGTO, HMIGTU, HMIGK, HMISTU, HMISTO

Resolution:
Unfortunately the embedded Magelis HMIs are unable to connect to a file sharing server on the same network. The operating system of the embedded HMis do not have the abiltiy to talk to a file sharing server. In order to achieve this requirement, we must move to the iPC or HMIG5U2 series. Since these platforms use Windows operating systems, we can map a drive letter to the file sharing server location and then use the drive letter as the Secondary or Optional drive in Vijeo Designer.
