FP Web-Server & FP Web Expansion Unit

An "all-terrain vehicle": total communication, total connectivity everywhere, anytime.

Safe, simple and inexpensive data exchange

The FP Web-Server 2 connects all FP series controllers to the Ethernet. No changes to the PLC program are necessary. Simply assign an IP address to the FP Web-Server 2 and connect the PLC to the FP Web-Server 2 via the serial RS232C interface. A standard browser, e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, can be used for access by the PC. To configure the FP Web-Server 2 use the software FP Web Configurator, which is available as an option.

Worldwide communication

The FP Web-Server module connects all FP Series controllers to the Ethernet. No changes to the PLC programs are necessary. Simply assign an IP address to the FP Web-Server and connect the PLC to the FP Web-Server via the serial RS232 interface. A standard browser, e.g. MS Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari or Chrome, can be used for access at the PC. The HTML page can be created with common tools such as Eclipse (platform-independent development tool), Microsoft Expression Web or a text editor with syntax highlighting.

FP Web-Server advantages

  • Uses existing Intranet, saves wiring
  • Uses standard browser, saves Scada software
  • Remote control
  • Remote monitoring
  • Remote programming
  • Alarm information via e-mail
  • Data logging (with FPWEBEXP)

FP Web-Server highlights

  • IEC 60870-5-101 and IEC 60870-5-104 protocol: Communication via RS232C, RS485 adapter, leased-line modem, PSTN modem or Ethernet
  • Time synchronization using network server: Correction of the PLC real-time clock using NTP server
  • SNMPv1 agent:
    • Data exchange using SNMP management system
    • Flexible SNMP MIB structures
  • FTP client: Current or logged data can be sent to a remote FTP server
  • Data logger: Logging of PLC data and saving it on an SD memory card or transmitting it via FTP (only possible when FPWEBEXP is attached)

Configuration Software: FP Web Configurator Tool

Our Windows-based program helps you easily set up and configure the FP Web-Server, e.g.:

  • Automatic integration of PLC data into HTML pages
  • Preparation of pre-stored e-mail addresses and texts
  • Internet dial-up and e-mail server settings
  • TCP/IP address and parameter changes
  • Passwords and security setup
  • IEC 60870-5 parameters and modem settings
  • Configuration of all other available functions

Using the Internet or Intranet (Ethernet LAN or WAN)
The PLC connects to the FP Web-Server via RS232C (or USB/RS485 using the FP Web Expansion Unit) and MEWTOCOL; the FP Web-Server uses an Ethernet (10Base-T / 100Base-TX) connection to access the TCP/IP network.

Using a dial-up network
The PLC connects to the FP Web-Server via RS232C (or USB/RS485 using the FP Web Expansion Unit) and MEWTOCOL. A modem is connected to the second RS232C of the FP Web-Server. The modem can be dialled up via telephone line. The modem can also be used for Internet dial-up, e.g. to exchange data and to send e-mails .

Combinations: LAN plus dial-up gateway
Any combination of the above LAN and dial-up concepts is possible, e.g. an Ethernet network connecting several FP Web-Servers and an additional FP Web-Server initialized as a gateway for dial-up connections into the Internet.

Application examples:

  • Visualization and remote control via HTTP/HTTPS:
    PLC data can be presented as HTML pages
  • Control FPWIN Pro remote programming via TCP/IP:
    Programming and monitoring access via Ethernet with and without VPN tunnels
  • Alarm sending via e-mail:
    Predefined alarm messages can be sent to a user (optional via Internet dial-up)
