    I am happy to release my new alpha version of Jfx-HMI Builder


    Create HMI for contoling a PLC remotely by using a tixi alarm modem ...
    What a tixi device does ? I connects to most of PLC availlable on the market (Eaton Easy,XC,XV # Siemens # ABB # Mitsubishi ) and makes it accesible over the internet !

    more info here:
    I have used a Httputils to interact with the tixi webserver

    Jfx-HMI buider is a development sofware, you can build indefinite numbers of projects
    Jfx -HMI runtime will be delivered to customer and run on the targeted pc

    With this software you can connect to any webserver , or to any other protocol by adding device drivers to runtime environment.
    By adding your own picture library you can build your own industrial HMI

    DOWNLOAD: Builder for Tixi Alarm Modem.jar?dl=0

    Thank you Erel for this great opportunity

    Enjoy !

    No ..comunicate with tixi , just using http utils job and using its buildin web server ...
    Tixi does all comunication with the plc and they are quite good at reading plc memory
    Playing with tixi device is quite easy ... mainly he connects to programing port of the PLC then using a windows IDE simple to use you configure variables that the device makes available within the webserver with a specific access tag.

    I am working on building UDP/TCP comunication driver over Ethernet (I use codesys to build the plc side driver and mainly use Eaton products but other can be implemented as well )
    I would be great to have a OPC client running inside the application but it seems it not possible for the moment and I do not code in java .

    I did tried to to my best to get as close as possible to some of the products availlable on the market I do think there might be improvements..
    If you have any experience with automations software and SCADA please test my software

    NICE Work! @hookshy.
    Thanks for sharing. It looks great just a couple of minor things you may or may not be aware of.

    1. When clicking on about under help the program just closes
    2. The program window (width) cuts off the "J" in Java FX-HMI Builder
