How to install SoMachine Gateway on the new iPC ranges to use SoMachine Protocol

Published date: 26 December 2018

 Goals and Symptoms        
The new iPCS  ( HMIPSP, HMIPSO, HMIPEP, HMIBM) and HMIG5U2 have been implemented in SoMacine software since the version V4.3 and Vijeo Designer 6.2 SP6.1. The problem is that these iPCs do not have SoMachine gateway pre-installed. Therefore, if you install an old version of Vijeo Designer Runtime on these iPCS and then download your project, the runtime will be updated and the download will be completed successfully. But the communication won’t work because the SoMachine Gateway is missing on these iPCS.
Causes and Fixes       
The communication between the PLC and the iPC using SoMachine protocol does not work if there is no SoMachine Gateway installed in these iPCs.
To fix the issue, you need to Install only Vijeo Designer Runtime for Windows of V6.2 SP6.1 that will install automatically SoMachine Gateway.
Here is the link to download Vijeo Designer Runtime for Windows of V6.2 SP6.1:
