When browsing to the Web Port via a web browser or client application, you will first be taken to the login page. There are two types of logins. These are described below.
- Username and Password
- Login with username and password always works and user accounts and permissions are set up by the system administrator.
- All user accounts except administrator accounts have the possibility to use a pin code. This code can be used for local login in the control cabinet to facilitate login via touch panels.
The start page shows the selected start page, as well as quick links to the alarm list, my pages and other
activated modules (e.g. object collection).
Examples of quick links from the home page
The Web Port menu system is built around a top menu that is always available at the top of the screen. From here you can access the main menu (MENU) where you can navigate between the different systems. For a system there can also be several views, these by clicking on the button for each view. If there are options to edit the page displayed, an edit button will appear.
The top menu also contains a link to the alarm page (ALARM), if this function is activated. If unacknowledged alarm events are present, the alarm icon displays an exclamation mark and moves sideways. Depending on the page displayed, help and print buttons may also appear, which can be found under the menu icon consisting of 3 dots and a circle.
On the far left of the top menu, there is a back button to return to the previous page and a Web Port icon that leads back to the home page.
Example of Main Menu
When a system image is opened, a dynamic flowchart of the current system is displayed. The image is composed of a static background image with dynamic objects illustrating measured values and alarm events.
Example of system image
Dynamic objects on the car are clickable. When such an item is selected, a menu with all the adjustable
values for the current item is displayed. Depending on the level of access and the signals available, the setting options may vary. If manual control is available, buttons are displayed for this purpose.
Time stamps for measured values are also shown here. To save the changes made, click on the SAVE button at the bottom of the settings menu. To close the settings menu without saving, click OFF.
