What is it?
PDF Reader allows opening a PDF file stored in an external device on HMI.
Have you ever been in a situation that the machine suddenly stopped working, and you couldn’t find a solution? Usually, you may call your colleague in the office, and try to find the manual of the machine. What’s worse, if you can’t find anyone to help you, you may need to get back to the office to find the answer on your own. If you are wearing a dust-proof suit, you can imagine how annoying it is to take it off, and put it on again, or if your office is far away, you can imagine how much time it wastes to get back.
Now with PDF Reader object, you can save the manuals in a USB drive, or a SD card, and read them on HMI anytime you need, simply by inserting the external device into HMI. Furthermore, with the help of File Browser object, all the documents in your USB drive can be easily found in a list, which makes it easy to change between documents, and immediately find an answer that solves the problem you encounter. Even if the documents are not saved in the USB drive in advance, you don’t have to worry about it. By using FTP server, the documents can be transferred from your office to the USB drive inserted to HMI.
