|The Mobile Edition of the GLG Toolkit
targets process control and mission-critical deployments
on the web and mobile devices
where Java is not available. It uses a server-side GLG
Server, which generates dynamic HMI images that are
displayed on mobile devices.
The Toolkit provides capabilities to
visualize not just simple dashboards with dials and charts, but entire
control or monitoring diagrams updating with real-time data.
For the client-side web deployment using Java, see the Java Edition of the GLG Toolkit.
Point and Click
The Mobile Edition of
the GLG Toolkit includes the GLG
Builder - a graphical editor with point and
click interface for creating dynamic
HMI and SCADA screens and
diagrams. With the Graphics Builder, developers can create
control and system monitoring drawings, define dynamic behavior
and attach real-time data
sources. A large number of pre-built components and palettes are also available
for use as building blocks.
The HMI screens use vector graphics and are resolution-independent,
which makes it possible to deploy them on a wide range of displays - from desktop PCs to mobile phones.
Drawings created with the Builder can be reused between all deployment
platforms - C/C++/C#, Java, .NET, Web and Mobile.
The Mobile Edition
includes the GLG
Graphics Server library, which is used to deploy the HMI
displays on an application server. The Graphics Server takes
generating dynamic images of the HMI displays for mobile devices, and updating
the real-time data. The Graphics Server provides an extensive
programming API that allows developers to control and extend the
Graphics Server's functionality at run time.
If desired, the Graphics Server can load the HMI displays for a
monitored process and keep them in
memory, updating the HMI displays with the latest data. This
allows the Graphics Server to generate dynamic images of the current
state of the process by taking "snap shots" with very
little overhead, making it possible for a large number of simultaneous users
to monitor the process.
for OEM Use
The GLG HMI Configurator,
a simplified version of the HMI
editor for the end-users, is also available. It may be used for
OEM distribution by system integrators and can be extensively
customized with custom actions, icons, dialogs, data browser and other custom
The HMI Configurator may also
be used for developing cloud-based
SCADA and monitoring systems,
where a customer creates a drawing, specifies real-time data sources
uploads the drawing to a server for a web or mobile deployment.
