Custom Web pages
The Ewon offers the possibility to customize web pages to show tag values directly on a custom HTML page instead of the traditional internal table page inside the eWON embedded website.
The Ewon can host a web site containing user define web pages. The hosting management can be done like for common web site using the Ewon FTP server. When connecting to the Ewon FTP server, the root directory contains a /usr directory. The pages from the custom Web site can be located in that directory or in subdirectories of /usr.
If you don’t have any HTML skills but still want to create custom web pages, you can do it via our companion tool viewON.
viewON is a graphical environment used to design animated HMI pages for the Ewon Flexy. Embedded as a Web page, viewON transforms the Ewon Flexy into a powerful remote dashboard containing complete synoptics with various objects and animations.
