Setting up GOT2000 HMI with multiple connections over Ethernet.
GOT2000 & GOTSimple HMIs have the capability to setup multiple connections with two different controllers e.g. two different PLC platforms, and is also capable of having up to 64 stations on a single channel. This is achieved by having 2 channel connections.
The technical tip PDF shows the example of setting up FX series PLC on Channel 1 and Q series PLC on Channel 2. Although these two platforms are both Mitsubishi, they are both different in functionality and programming methods.
In other terms if a manufacturing company is working with two different product brands one HMI can communicate to both of them as long as the HMI has a suitable driver installed for that product brand.
