Developed software application enables visualisation and remote control of the laboratory
EIB-TP installation via Internet network.
The application consists of two parts: administrator part and user part. The
administrator part manages users’ accounts, which have a right to use software application,
taking into consideration their access rights. In turn the user part of application allows to
remote control and visualisation of EIB devices installed in the lab EIB-TP system.
In Fig. 1. web page with visualisation application of the lab EIB-TP installation has been
Function software push buttons are located at top of the control panel. These push buttons
allow to control EIB devices. Push buttons “All ON” and “All OFF” serve to central on or off
all devices within the EIB-TP installation respectively. Besides them other push buttons are
They allow to realise the following control functions:
- “On-Off” – to turn on / to turn off any lamp and to raise / to let a roller down
- “ Dimming” – to dim any lamp in the living room or lamp in the kitchen,
- “Brightening” – to brighten any lamp in the living room or lamp in the kitchen,
- “Up” – to raise a roller step by step,
- “Down” – to let a roller down step by step.In order to control (change of state) any EIB device installed in the lab EIB-TP system, it
is necessary to click on selective function push button and then to click on respective EIB
device graphical symbol.
Fig. 1. Web page for remote control and visualization of the lab EIB-TP installation
During laboratory exercises students can test designed web page for remote control and
visualisation of the EIB-TP installation. They may execute respective control operations by
means of push buttons located on the visualisation panel and observe behaviour of devices
installed in the lab stand. On the other hand students may push buttons located in the lab EIBTP
stand (change state of sensors) and observe behaviour (states) of graphical models of
devices installed on the visualisation panel.
Students may also utilise the visualisation application designed into their own visualisation
projects. In that case the same group addresses and IP address of gateway IG/S, as in the
visualisation application developed, must be used. All necessary information about it can be
found with the use of ETS program in respective EIB-TP project.
During laboratory exercises action of developed the visualisation application can be also
compared with action of the specialised visualisation panel designed by BusBaer enterprise
and with action of the specialised OPC Server – NETxEIB MP Open OPC Studio and with
OPC Client – NETxEIB OPC Client2 Demo.
