he FP Web-Server module connects all FP Series controllers to the Ethernet.





Worldwide communication

The FP Web-Server module connects all FP Series controllers to the Ethernet. No changes to the PLC programs are necessary. Simply assign an IP address to the FP Web-Server and connect the PLC to the FP Web-Server via the serial RS232 interface. A standard browser, e.g. MS Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, can be used for access at the PC.



FP Web-Server advantages

  • Uses existing Intranet, saves wiring
  • Uses standard browser, saves Scada software
  • Remote control
  • Remote monitoring
  • Remote programming
  • Alarm information via e-mail



FP Web-Server highlights

  • Web-Server:
    - PLC data presented as HTML (or XML) pages
    - Access via standard Internet browser
    - PLC data handling via HTML and Java Applet
    - Optional: Password protection, IP lock security
  • e-mail:
    - PLC can send e-mails
    - e-mail via LAN e-mail server or Internet dial-up
    - PLC-defined or pre-stored e-mail text
    - PLC data array as attachment to an e-mail
  • RS232C device server:
    - Ethernet RS232C conversion (MEWTOCOL)
    - Transparent RS232C data tunnelling via Ethernet
    - Programming and visualisation via TCP or UDP
  • Modem dial-in / Ethernet gateway:
    - FP Web-Server can be dialled up via modem
    - One remote gateway for multiple FP Web-Servers
  • Modem dial-out / Internet system:
    - FP Web-Server can dial out to the Internet (and stay online)
    - Various Internet / GPRS system solutions available
  • Modbus-TCP protocol:
    - Communication via standard industrial Ethernet protocol (server and client)
    - Gateway for Modbus-RTU units (master and slave)
  • IEC 60870-5-101 and IEC 60870-5-104 protocol:
    - Communication via RS232C, RS485 adapter, multipoint modem, dial-up modem, Ethernet
  • Network time server synchronisation:
    - PLC real-time clock update via NTP server

For an initial test of the HTTP function of the FP Web-Server you can access the Internet demo unit: DEMO-FPWEB 1 or DEMO-FPWEB 2.

Configuration Software: FP Web Configurator Tool

Our Windows-based programme helps you easily set up and configure the FP Web-Server, e.g.:

  • Automatic integration of PLC data into HTML pages
  • Preparation of pre-stored e-mail addresses and texts
  • Internet dial-up and e-mail server settings
  • TCP/IP address and parameter changes
  • Passwords and security setup
  • IEC 60870-5 parameters and modem settings
  • Configuration of different functions

Using the Internet or Intranet (Ethernet LAN or WAN)
The PLC connects to the FP Web-Server via RS232C and MEWTOCOL; the FP Web-Server uses an Ethernet (10Base-T / 100Base-TX) connection to access the TCP/IP network.

Using a Dial-up Network
The PLC connects to the FP Web-Server via RS232C and MEWTOCOL. A modem is connected to the second RS232C of the FP Web-Server. The modem can be dialled up via telephone line. The modem can also be used for Internet dial-up and to send e-mails via an Internet e-mail server.

Combinations: LAN plus Dial-up Gateway
Any combination of the above LAN and dial-up concepts is possible, e.g. an Ethernet network connecting several FP Web-Servers and an additional FP Web-Server initialised as a gateway for dial-up connections and to send e-mails via Internet dial-up.

Application Examples: 

  • Visualisation and remote control via HTTP
  • PLC data can be presented as HTML pages
  • Control FPWIN remote programming via TCP/IP
  • Programming and monitoring access via Ethernet
  • Alarm sending via e-mail:
    Predefined alarm messages can be sent to a user (optionally via Internet dial-up)





FP Web Designer

FP Web Designer is an easy-to-use editing tool used to create Web sites for visualizing process data collected by FP Web-Server. No programming knowledge for HTML, PHP, JavaScript or Java is required! Graphic libraries help users with their design work.

Features of FP Web Designer 

  • WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) editor for graphic design of applications
  • The designed pages can be called up by a Web browser on any PC connected to a LAN or WAN. All process values are shown automatically on the screen.
  • Each diagram can display up to 5 trend curves for measured values stored in PLCs. A simple mouse click updates the page.
  • The measured values together with trend curves can be stored as CSV files.
  • Alarm information can be visualized on a Web browser and saved. Updating alarm information runs in the background so that Web pages always display the current status in the browser.
  • The Web pages in the browser can be password-protected to prevent unauthorized access and changes.
  • Process values can be imported in CSV format from PLC programs written with FPWIN Pro
  • Extensive and expandable macro libraries available
  • Online help in English and German
