Using Windows/Android Tablet for HMI Display

WareTech 2 months ago in IQANdesign updated 1 month ago 3

Good Afternoon,

Our company is building multiple custom orderpickers for a warehouse and we are considering using IQAN control system.

Does anyone out there know if there would be any possible way to use an IQAN MC43FS module for the I/O and then use an Android or Windows tablet for the main HMI?

We would like to do this so that we can use that same tablet for other apps relating to inventory control, etc.

Thank you for your input.

Could someone please move this topic to ideas? Or should I open a new one?

This would be a very helpful function for us.


Changed topic type from question to feature idea. 

Thanks Gustav!

Would you have any thoughts on doing something like this?

Is there a chance you will implement this sometime?

If not, let me know as our team may try to build our own Windows app and communicate with an MC4 etc. over CAN. (Which is probably what you would do anyway if you would do it.)
