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.

    Can I run two GOT2000 in parallel so I can have one on each side of the machine?
    Thank
